Selection of staters, a Sirloin or fillet, served with a choice of side dishes, a sauce & onion rings & grilled tomato.

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!

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!

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

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!!!

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!

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!

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 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 !

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)

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.

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.

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.

Lovely food and atmosphere, the only downside is that it gets incredibly loud in the restaurant area especially when there are large groups in there and you find yourself hoarse after shouting to compete with the all the other diners.

Excellent food as always. Possibly the best tapas on the Wirral. Our waiter, Keith, was friendly and courteous and went the extra mile to keep us happy. Will definitely eat there again. 😃
