“Good choice for dinner”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

A group of 7 of us spent last night here for dinner. Friendly service, but originally we were seated in the booths in the bar area, but the music was far to loud even at 8pm so we asked to be moved into the restaurant. We ordered one of the £20 tapas plates, which is served on a massive slate. Excellent. My cheese & bacon burger was massive, and very tasty. Overall a good choice for a informal dinner.

Came here with my brothers, we wanted the fajitas but when we arrived the menu said fajitas were only served until 6pm. Bit strange not to serve the fajitas at dinner time. The waitress was friendly but foreign and had difficultly understanding when we asked for cod and chip - it's called beer battered chips on the menu. The menu also said to check the specials board for the soup of the day and other specials but there were no boards displayed. Two other tables arrived whilst we were there a couple and then a table of 3/4 people, wasn't much of an atmosphere. Food was presented nicely although some of the lettuce leaves in my burger were partly black, so I picked them out. I also Rocket leaves in my burger which wasn't in the description on the menu.

“Great Night, relaxing atmosphere! :-)”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Popped into the Courthouse for 1 drink and ended up staying all night.
Atmosphere was very welcoming; staff were attentive; drinks very reasonably prices (especially the cocktails!)
A great night out :-)

“Good atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Nice place, the food wasn't great on this occasion but I know they can do better, very friendly staff and some comfortable seating. On the downside it does get quite hot in there when it is full.

“Beautiful building and food was good.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Wowed by the outside and it really looks a classy venue. Absolutely spotless and gleaming inside. Set in the financial district which perhaps explains the relatively high prices. It was also a Saturday lunch time and we were the only customers for the hour we spent for lunch. We were sat in the booths of the restaurant which perhaps were a little too dark. The food came though and it was of a high quality so no complaints.
