Welcomed and taken straight to our table the staff were friendly atmosphere buzzing you could drink at the bar if you did not want to eat we had tapas throughly recommend
We had Tapas which was lovely. The offer on cocktails was great too. Staff are very efficient, polite and friendly. Been here a few times and it never disappoints
Another great evening at the courtyard as usual. Fabtastic food, service and atmosphere. . . . . . . . . Thanks again guys .
My friend and I went on a Thursday evening we hadn't realised it was a deal night, spend £25 and get a free bottle of wine. Excellent deal, food was gorgeous as always, lovely evening, friendly staff and busy place!
From the moment we walked into The Courtyard we were warmly greeted and shown to our table straight away. The service the whole night was faultless, very polite and very attentive. We chose the tapas menu and we're so glad we did. Every dish we had was amazing, big portions and beautifully cooked. To top the night off too, on the night we went there was 40% off as well!! We will definitely be back!!
We loved the decor & lighting and the ambience of The Courtyard Good service and delicious food Monday , Tuesday & Wednesday are steak nights. 2 courses for £19.95. Selection of staters, a Sirloin or fillet, served with a choice of side dishes, a sauce & onion rings & grilled tomato. Cocktail offers & a comprehensive wine list We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening thank you
We ordered several different tapas dishes. The portions here are large as far as tapas goes so be careful how many you order! I really enjoyed the calamari and my partner the peppered steak. Staff efficient and friendly. We have been here quite a few times and usually early evening if we are visiting on a Friday or Saturday as it can be quite noisy later on - the restaurant and bar are very close to each other. The wine selection is good and the two for one cocktail deal a definite plus!
Asked for a children's menu, they said they don't do one on Sundays just a small version of adults roast dinner. Chef then came out and said he could do sausages and mash. Ordered one sausages, mash, peas and gravy and one chicken, mash, peas and gravy. Food came out, not what we ordered at all but chicken nuggets, chips and mushy peas and sausages, chips and mushy peas! So basically a children's meal!! Food was actually nice but there was far too much of it and loads was wasted. Service wasnt up to standard in my opinion.
Firstly it wasn't busy. We were greeted and sat warmly. I arrived before my client, and I ordered a drink which arrived quickly. She then ordered a drink, a bottle arrived with no offer of a glass. Our food order was amazing, the food is lovely, well prepared, good selection and the dishes we choose were really nice. We ordered a second drink order. The server forgot our order, and we prompted, she then came back to say she'd forgotten what we ordered. We informed her, and then it was delayed again. So it was a bit of a mixed experience. I'd say your front of house staff are letting you down. As the restaurant space and atmosphere was good, the food excellent, but the service not great.
The venue is lovely, the food choice was excellent, the servic could have been better. We waited about 40 mins for the food, just before it came out we were told we would have to pick another dish because there was none left of something. This would have been useful when we first ordered. The food could have been hotter too. It was a very busy Saturday night so I can imagine that at a quieter time this place is lovely. Hasn't put me off going again though. Will just pick my time more wisely!
The Courtyard was a lovely setting, the staff very friendly , service good and the tapas food was fabulous and good portion size. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others.
We had yet another excellent meal at The Courtyard in Oxton, can't fault it. Very good atmosphere and service and very good value for money too! Luckily it's only a 5 minute walk from home.
Very friendly staff. Keith very attentive as it was ny birthday and I jokingly said I was 21 again. Wheb my pudding arrived he had written in chocolate sauce happy 21st birthdsy and my delicious mars bar cheescake had a candle in it. He also gave me a non alcoholic cocktails as he said I could see you aren't drinking. Very thoughtful and made my lunch very special
Booked a table for 9pm last night. After asking for it at 850, we then waited until 915 before having to ask again. At this point we were told they would sort it out, but this still took 10 more mins. We then ordered only to be told ten minutes later that two of our dishes were sold out. Offered alternatives (as opposed to a menu), the waiter claimed that cod cakes were 'pretty much the same' as chorizo croquettes. After waiting nearly 40 mins we got most of our food (we had to ask again for one dish) which was pretty bland overall and tasted like ingredients put together in a bowl as opposed to a plate of restaurant quality food. The drinks were not bad although advertising all cocktails as 2 for 10 underneath the section with the French martini only to then say the French martini is excluded is just infuriating..... Had heard good things about this place but won't be going back!
Service was good, food was lovely, good offer with 40% off tapas so fairly cheap dinner out. It was under £30 for two beers, 6 tapas dishes and garlic bread starter. The only criticism was the tapas dish named, Migas. The black pudding and chorizo were overdone and dried out. Didn't seem fresh, just a freshly cooked egg on the top. Would return again though.
Food was great, however some of the service wasn't the best. It may have been as several of the servers seemed to be new, which is fine as we all have to learn. Didn't spoil the evening though, and I would definitely go back. As an aside though, we were sat at the back of the restauarant and the music was really loud, particularly for a restaurant. Sometimes struggled to hear each other on a table of four!!
The Courtyard has a great atmosphere! The food is lovely and reasonably priced and the staff are great. I would definitely recommend the Courtyard to others.
I hadn't been out for a year due being poorly I was nervous but had a fantastic evening the food was delious and reasonably priced. my friend and I had to cocktails as well they were fab. Thankyou for a fabulous evening definitely coming back with my husband next time.
First time at the courtyard and was really impressed. Waitresses were lovely, very friendly and attentive. Food was gorgeous. Nice atmosphere and decor. Lively but not too loud, good music too. They have loads of deals and offers the ought he week too- will definitely be going back. Happy diners!
Food was delicious, barman was very friendly, although this restaurant wasn't very full we did seem to be overlooked somewhat, perhaps the staff may need to be more aware of what stage the diners are at as we seemed to wait a while for somebody to take our food order or even notice that we were ready to order,
Not the best visit I've had there I'm afraid. Bread was stale which was taken off the bill. Steak salad ?? The steak was hard around the edges as if it had dried out in the fridge. Friends cob salad?? Chicken was also very dried out and too much blue cheese dressing they offered us a free dessert which was delicious. We've been to the courtyard many times for tapas and was always superb or the Sunday roast which was also always delicious. Wine was good as was the company but next time will have the tapas!!!
We were welcomed by the staff, and were shown to our table, very attentive staff, despite the restaurant being a little busy. Our friends were very I spreader, as were we, the food was excellent, lamb was lovely and the other roasts, pork and beef looked scrumptious. Thank you to all, we will definitely be back soon!
Lovely food and drinks - very much enjoyed! (But be aware - very busy place - we were told as we sat down they would need the table back by a certain time (put us on edge slightly and very aware of time), can also be very noisy in there as quite small.) Will be returning definitely!
Fabulous from start to finish. Lovely friendly atmosphere, Excellent customer service from all the staff. The food was presented well and tasted yummy! Drinks & cocktails were amazing and the overall price was more than reasonable. Perfect date night we will definitely be returning soon, loved it!
The courtyard restaurant is a lovely place to go, if it's for 2 people or a large group, food and service superb,and good choice of food. Had never booked a table before through Quandoo and was so easy even for a novice like me. Thank you
Visited with friends for a birthday meal,we were seated beside a large booking but this didnt affect the service. The food was outstanding, we ordered 3 tapas each and had some left over. The cocktails were amazing too. Oh and staff couldn't have been more helpful.
A really lovely evening, we enjoyed the Tapas & I especially enjoyed the Porn Star Martini's with the shot of Prosseco on the side. Great background music, a really lovely atmosphere with very friendly staff, have been before and will go back for more x.
was most enjoyable and great value for money food out standing nice atmosphere enjoyed all the courtyardhad to offer my wife enjoyed the cocktails and the food on the whole was amaizing steak to die for taps very yummy will be booking to go again
Excellent food. Lovely attentive and helpful staff showed us to a table for two which was in a darker part of the restaurant, but moved us with no fuss when asked. The food was delicious and the tapas portions more generous than in other tapas bars we have been to. Overall a great night.
Been here many times and loved it , but last night was a total disaster. It took 15 minutes to get served for a beer because the 3 bar staff were making cocktails, and there was only me waiting. The table was booked for 19:45, we were seated at 20:00. We ordered 7 dishes off the tapas menu. The hot bread was served 5 minutes later. We then never received another dish for 50 minutes by which time the bread was cold. When the food arrived the potato dish was only half a usual serving , it had been cut in half and split into 2 dishes. The chilli chicken dish was made with tiny pieces of chicken and again was only half full. The mushroom in sauce was like mushroom in water. We complained and showed the waitress who told the manager. The waitress informed us the manager said we can have 40% off , we hadn't eaten anything so refused . The manager then came over and looked at our food and agreed that we shouldn't pay . She was excellent in her manner and the way she dealt with us . I hope they have a look at staffing levels around the bar area when cocktails are on and also go back to the proper size dishes they use to serve. The tapas dishes are small enough without the kitchen staff reducing them smaller . I will give the place another go because we have had many a nice meal, but if it fails again it will probably be the last time. C Taylor . Prenton
Overall a pleasant experience, but had to wait a while for our table, even though we had booked. They brought out one wrong dish but let us keep it and made the correct dish. Food was nice & the free glass of prosecco for Mother's Day for all mums was a lovely touch.
Excellent venue, food sublime. Good menu. Portion size is exactly right. Service is attentive without being in your face. Parking can be an issue I imagine, but we dropped straight into a space just a short walk away. We will be back for more!
Booked the courtyard for a meal with a friend over the bank holiday weekend. It was busy both in the bar and the restaurant but service was good as was the food and really reasonably priced too. Stayed for a cocktail in the bar after and it was really nice too
Booked a table and when we arrived was very busy. Food order was very messed up ,while you wait courses came after the mains started to arrive, some food never turned up at all , some people had finished whilst others were still waiting and drinks had to be chased up on numerous occasions. Having said all that , the manager was fantastic and did her best to sort it all out and no complaints about the food when it finally arrived !
Food and service both great. Was able to stay at the table and have waitress service for drinks too which was a nice touch. Some places would unseat you and expect you to go to the bar when you'd finished eating.
We always go the courtyard for the past few years. Food is great! Service is great! However it's slowly becoming more and more noisy and over crowded. The restaurant seating layout Could be a lot better and is always hard to get into your seat or eat while people are constantly trying to squeeze past. Still a great restaurant and bar.
Excellent quality food, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. There is plenty of choice on the menu - the 'tapas' is not really Spanish tapas, more a nice variety of different things (eg there is a curry platter, and jerk wings)
This was my first visit to the courtyard and was not disappointed in any way the service was good and the food was served fast and efficient a lovely experience and will be back again in the near future 👍👍👍👍
Food and drinks where great, service was a little slow and we had to ask for a couple of things twice. It wasn't that busy and having been there a couple of times and had great service when it was really crowded, it was a bit surprising.
Food very tasty and cocktails delicious. Service awful. Waited over half an hour for cocktails which when came were wrong no apology just taken back the bar no replacement sent and still charged for them at the end. Food was tasty when it came but had to actually get up and intterupt the waitresses lovely conversation and giggles just to get the bill. We had requested this 20 minutes before. All in all nice food but terrible service.
Lovely food and good service worth going to the gentleman who works serving food is so pleasant not sure of his name went on a weekday think a Thursday spend £20 Get a free bottle of wine!
Good food, attentive staff. we live close to Oxton village so we will visit again. It was a Wednesday we dined there and it was 40% off so all in all it was a good night.
My companions tapas dishes were lovely. I pointed out mine were not. Nothing said by staff so little disappointed. (Steak unpleasant and dauphinois potatoes overcooked). Couple of the staff didn't appear to want to be there either; not v engaging. Almost distracted. Wouldn't discourage me from going again; hopefully just one of those nights.
Lovely affordable tapas. 6 plates between me and girlfriend plus we got free nachos on arrival as they had been made by mistake for another table. Will be back in jan to make use of the 40% off tapas mon -wed after 5pm
Fabulous food, great atmosphere. Staff working very hard to keep everyone happy, possibly could do with a few more bar staff as even though it was quiet had to wait a while to be served.
the food in the courtyard is fantastic just the right size portions would really recomend it if you want to just drink though they have a great choice of drinks and some real good cocktails
Really enjoyed our evening at the courtyard service and staff were very friendly an help full. Was really looking forward to the beef but was not impressed at all, overall fantastic evening an will return...
We all had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambience. The staff were excellent. Only problem some may find is service can be slow at times, but we weren't in a rush so got to talk for longer
Booked a table for two in the library, but was told when we arrived all the tables in that area where fully booked. Several of these tables remained empty for a good hour and a half after we arrived. The restaurant was obviously keeping these tables free for parties of four.
Excellent food and excellent service ... we are looking forward to going again soon ... the restaurant staff were extremely attentive and went out of their way to help me enjoy my birthday celebrations.
