Description
One of Knutsford's hidden gems, The Courtyard provides a picturesque setting to enjoy a traditional breakfast, lunch and homemade cakes from our deliciously British menu. Using the very best ingredients and fresh produce to prepare our dishes fresh every day. Our Welsh Rarebit is popular, as is our Chef's specials which change seasonally. Choose to sit in the main restaurant with our vintage train track overhead, learn about our largest Penny Farthing in the conservatory or soak up the sun in our courtyard with ample seating in a beautiful setting packed full of nature. With an array of cycles and spokes on display, The Courtyard is rich in heritage of Knutsford and also the perfect pit-stop for cyclists alike. We also work with the heritage centre and can arrange guided tours of Knutsford on request.
