I dined here with my work colleagues and had the Christmas 3 course meal. The food was well presented and was really nice. I would return again, thank you.

First things first. Those who served us were very pleasant and polite. Now, onto the reality. Over priced e.g. £5 for four bits of bread and some olive oil and balsamic vinegar (with an emphasis on vinegar - clearly Tesco's own). Steak at £25 (!) was ok. But the service, in a half empty restaurant was very slow, to the... More

The place was quite but... More

Went out as a large group for a friend's birthday and being on the Isle of Man, expected that to be used as an excuse for slow service and average food. I was wrong. The waitress was very attentive and we didn't have to wait long for our food. It was amazing and very reasonably priced for somewhere labelled as... More

This was the second time we have eaten at the Courthouse. The staff were attentive but not crowding, our meals were very tasty and served piping hot and well presented. We will return.

Courthouse is nothing short of excellent every time. Beer is good. Wine is excellent. Food is award winning. Prices are worth every penny and more. More locals need to support this restaurant because it's not even a half full on a Thursday night. Heard it's filled on the weekend though. Well done. No socks needs to be pulled up

I took a table in the courthouse during the week and it was very quiet (only about 10 other guests) Firstly and throughout the service was excellent so thank you for that. I ordered the slow cooked pork belly (I was told it would be a while due to being slow cooked) It was certainly worth the wait. I was... More

a restaurant that has more vegetarian selection than most in Doug. all made in house, fresh and varied in presentation. service was very good. cocktail was disappointing. ordered a margheritta with lots of salt. it didn't appear to have been made with fresh juice and not enough salt! recommend a booth.

Restaurant about 40% full, food not bad but poor service. After taking order for initial drinks, waitress went AWOL, ended up having to grab another staff member as they passed by later to order food, ditto with another round of drinks and then had to go to till to get someone to take our coffee order and ditto the bill...
