Description: The Courtyard Restaurant is located in the Marston Farm Hotel in the village of Sutton Coldfield, set in nine acres of picturesque Warwickshire countryside. Only moments from Birmingham, this former 17th century farm house has oodles of rustic charm, and the restaurant is renowned for their hearty regional fare. With beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and a delightful summer terrace – The Courtyard Restaurant is an ideal location for long lunches, traditional afternoon tea and cosy evening meals, and is within easy reach of attractions such as Warwick Castle, Manor Park and Cadbury World. The service here is faultless, and the restaurant has a permanent marquee making it a popular place for wedding receptions and celebrations.

We were given a restaurant discovery voucher as a gift and decided to redeem it at the marston farm hotel. We booked a room at a coat of £91 so that we could make the most of the evening. The room was very nice, bog standard but served the purpose. The restaurant experience however was awful. We were under the impression we would get to sample various dishes from a menu but were told that the five courses consisted of three starters, a main and a pudding, the waitress proceeded to tell us what we would be having - soup, pâté, whitebait, braised beef and mash, lemon tart ( hardly a restaurant experience). She did say that if we did not like anything we could change it, so we asked to see the menu. There was very little choice and the dishes consisted of such things as fish and chips, chicken and mash, bread and butter pudding, chocolate fudge cake. My husband changed his whitebait to a soggy bruschetta and I changed my lemon tart to bread and butter pudding (yuk) and what appeared to be the cheapest packet custard available (i didn't eat it). The soup was served in a coffee cup, the pate was ok but came with a quarter slice of toast, the whitebait was cold, greasy and consisted of more breadcrumbs than fish (i didn't eat it) and as previously stated the bruschetta was soggy. Not much to be said about the beef and lemon tart, they were ok but hardly restaurant food ( my husband ate my beef). The service was ok but we weren't offered drinks or water, we had to ask. We weren't expecting large portions but we were expecting to try a variety of different dishes, what we were offered was very poor, particularly as the cost of the voucher was almost £50. We definitely wouldn't come here again.
