We visited here prior to an evening theatre performance. We waited 50 minutes for indifferent food which was poorly executed and presented and lukewarm. Whilst not overly expensive it represented poor value for money. Only saving grace was the convenience.More

A good range of food and drink at good prices. However, service is slow, leading to long queues at times. There are adverts around for extra staff, so it may just be a temporary issue (hopefully).

Have been several times for lunch, as always a delicious selection of salads and quiches, they also have take out boxes. A full menu and daily specials are also available. Highly recommend.

Don’t ask for a hot chocolate during an interval even when the bar is not busy. They only serve tea & coffee. First time I have had this said. Will not be getting my business any more and I have been coming here for years....More

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at The Courtyard Café Bar and I am very sorry to hear you were disappointed. We are a more informal ‘café bar’ establishment, rather than fine dining restaurant. We believe we offer good value in...More

The food all seems to be homemade. The freshness is questionable as it's all in the display fridge. Quiche and 3 salads nearly £10 and not worth it. One quiche one salad around £6 but don't expect too much in terms of flavour and taste....More
