The menu reads vey well, but does not live up to the description on the plate. The rabbit pasta was pasta.....nothing more, nothing less. Make your selections wisely

I have eaten here on three occasions and it is one of the few restaurants that I am always excited at the thoughts of returning. Amazing menu. Fabulous interior decor. Great staff. And don't start me on the organic wine!

Chose The Courthouse as one of our "special meals" during our recent Irish vacation. After B&B recommendation and reviews we made reservations using their online system before we left for our trip. The Courthouse contacted our B&B to make sure we had arrived as that was the only contact they had. We arrived for our reservation and were quickly seated... More

Four of us visited The Courthouse the last Bank Holiday. Very busy place but we were treated with courtesy and the steaks were delicious. Very relaxed even though they were so busy. No rushing. Look forward to another visit.

First visit to The Courthouse!! Our meet and greet was very lovely and we were given the same good service all evening. We were just out for a casual evening and found the food surprisingly good. This was an unexpected pleasure as we had not previously been aware that this little restaurant was such a joy. Nice busy atmosphere.
