We visited the Court House for the first time yesterday for Sunday lunch. We were warmly welcomed by the host, Michelle, and were well looked after by the staff throughout our meal. The ambience is warm and relaxed. There’s a wide choice on the menu and the food is home cooked

Lovely, quirky accommodation in pub, not luxurious but clean and good for a night or 2. Food very good, service excellent. Quite noisy when band playing but finished about 11ish so didn’t bother us and we have an 8 & 4 year old. Would stay again

"ask for an annexe chalet"
"We stayed in a quirky first floor bedroom but it was quiet and very spacious. Most rooms are in a separate block of ground floor chalets."
"Our review relates to the restaurant not the hotel facilities. Can't advise about rooms."
