In the heart of the city centre, Courtyard Bar and 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 garden.

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. With a mix of local cask ales and the best international drinks brands, there will be plenty to choose from. A small plates menu is available in the bar and beer garden until 8pm

                              We dined in the restaurant on 1st floor. Good food and service. Fab place to stop off at for drinks and food pre theatre or after a long day shopping

                              First time here for pre theatre meal. Excellent service throughout from lovely staff, good choice on the menu and great food. There was no rush to get us to vacate our table. When we got the bill we were pleasantly surprised at the cost. We will definitely come here again and will have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family.

                              Wow! I visited for the first time yesterday and loved it. The food was beautiful, piping hot and so delicious. I am a vegetarian and struggle sometimes to find food that is different from the bog standard bland choices, which are normally offered in most restaurants. I can not wait to revisit to try the other choices. We were a party of 4 and we all said how exceptional our meals were. Service was outstanding, staff were very attentive and looked after us.

                              A lovely meal prior to seeing the show next door. Lady who served us was extremely helpful with the menu suggestions for the two elderly ladies who were with us. Overall a lovely experience xxx

                              We were a large party, staff were great, very flexible with individual requests. Food lovely, diners who had cod said batter a bit too crispy! I would go again before the theatre.

                              Nice menu great service. Choice of draught beers downstairs were poor. Had no cask or any dark beers except Guinness. No urinals for Gents seems odd, made the toilets messy due to many missing the target. 🤔😉

                              Road works outside do not help the ambience. Ordinarily would be fab with views of historic buildings including St George’s Hall. Service good. Thought the menu was a little limited but maybe they only serve pre theatre menu at weekends. Ham hock starter was lovely as was the fish, chips and mushy peas main. Tasted like they made their own tartar sauce too. Everything was piping hot. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

                              Initially we found the service not too great. Felt a bit uncomfortable if I'm honest. Once there was a change in team member; service and feeling vastly improved. A little cold at our table Lack of face masks Great location for those dining before a concert or theatre performance

                              We came for a pre theatre meal & the atmosphere & service were excellent. Unfortunately, the Wagu burgers we ordered were quite tasteless. I don’t think we’ll be returning to this venue.

                              The Courtyard staff always welcome us with a smile. The food is presented beautifully and the taste never disappoints. The venue is always clean. The staff are professional and polite.

                              This is the feed back form my brother and his wife whom I booked it for. It was Christmas present along with tickets to see the scouse sleeping beauty at the Royal. That had a fabulous night all round. Thank you

                              Excellent staff, very attentive and the service was great. We had sea bass which was so tasty and the trio of cheeses to follow was excellent value, the grapes, walnuts and chutney were lovely. Great place to eat if going to a show at the Royal Court as it is only next door. Would recommend a visit if you've not been before.

                              Had a really lovely time here, everything was very good, atmosphere, food, service from staff. A bit of a miscommunication over how long we could have the table (id phoned the say before) but there were other tables so no problems. Food catered for all diets - I had vegan menu and it was delicious. Will definitely be returning.
