In the heart of the city centre, Courtyard Bar & Kitchen is a great place to eat and drink with friends.

The floor-to-ceiling windows in the restaurant give outstanding views of St George’s Hall and Lime Street Plateau while downstairs in the bar you can choose to drink inside or out on the newly created drinks terrace.

Upstairs in the restaurant, our friendly staff bring out generous portions of freshly cooked, locally sourced food in a relaxed setting. The menu is frequently updated to take advantage of seasonal fruit and vegetables so you will have the best food on your plate every time you visit.

The ground floor bar is a relaxed space for people who like great beer and wine. Freshly made bar snacks will be coming out of the kitchen and, with a mix of local cask ales and the best international drinks brands, there will be plenty to choose from.

We always have great service, food and atmosphere at the Courtyard. I have difficulty climbing stairs, I think lift access to the restaurant is the only thing missing.

We regularly eat at the Courtyard when in Liverpool. I have never been disappointed by the value and choice of food available. The service is brilliant and you get a lot for the money.

Lovely food and atmosphere and food value. We were a large party, accommodated at rather short notice, and were impressed, particularly with the wonderful friendly staff for whom nothing was too much trouble.

Food was overpriced as it was only okay, lovely decor and staff where fine had to ask someone to seat us because we where left standing waiting to be sat as there are different seating areas depending on dining I do think this may have been because it just opened but are booking was for 4:00 overall good place just a bit pricey for what we got food wise.

Staff were very attentive and considerate of my wife's food allergies.
There was no soya milk in stock but they offered to send out for some for my wife's coffee......sadly we had to decline since there would be insufficient time before we were due at the theatre.
On our many previous visits to the Courtyard I have phoned previously to check the availability of soya milk .......this time I hadn't however. Mea culpa !
PS.....the chicken wings were gorgeous.

On arriving even though our table was booked it hadn’t been allocated. A last minute placing of the cutlery for the 5th person on the end of the table which wasn’t really suitable. The music was loud with a booming beat! Potatoes undercooked on the sea bass skin soggy not crispy and chicken nuggets overcooked it was hard for the granddaughter to get her teeth through them. Felt menu choices weren’t that good either.

The menu was very limited and the food was a poor quality.
The risotto was bland with no flavour and the chicken was completely over cooked

We dined at 4pm on the pre-theatre menu which had great choices at a reasonable price.
The tomato and Marsala homemade soup was delicious and was a very generous portion and came with flatbread.
We’d ordered focaccia with balsamic vinegar snd oil dip as a side - it was warm and delicious.
Our mains (sea bass and a risotto) were well presented and tasty - and we’d ordered a side of thick cut chips with a bbq dip which was HUGE and would have fed 4 people! Very good value and served by lovely friendly people.
Best restaurant I’ve been to for a while and fascinating what’s happening outside St George’s Hall . Thankyou.

Not eaten here before but thought worth a try as we were going to a show there. Service very slow given it was a pre theatre dinner, 45 minute wait for main courses. Burger was ok but my chicken was very dry, tough and over cooked and the roast potatoes tasted like they had been hanging around for a while. Didn’t have time for dessert but probably wouldn’t have bothered given the standard of food. Very disappointing, won’t bother again as so many other places in Liverpool better than this

Excellent and very helpful staff. Great size portions and flavour combinations. Well worth the price! My partner and I shared a starter and dessert, having both chosen the two course option, it was more than enough! Overall amazing experience, we will be back when we are next in Liverpool.

Such a lovely place. I booked this for my mum and I as we were going to watch a performance at the Royal court. The place is decorated beautifully and it has a lovely ambience. The staff were very attentive without being ‘in your face’ and the food was delicious. Would definitely go back again. Oh and the views were fab too 👍
