Noise level of music went up significantly around 9-9.30pm making it difficult to chat with our small group of three. Most dinners had already left, with a few remaining in the front section...maybe it was to get rid of us to set up for the 11pm crowd?
Good food! However, although we ate inside, we were very much bothered by flies and spent our mealtime fending them off; the waiter told us promptly & cheerfully that this was what should expect in Australia, so I take it that this is the normal attitude for the courthouse bistro. I can't say I've ever met with that attitude in Australia, or anywhere, before.
All meals were good except for my salmon which was inedible. I couldn’t eat any more salmon after one bite - it had a bad taste and was clearly not fresh. Also the risotto was a bit like mush.
Fantastic! We love the Courthouse hotel ,it’s always a pleasure to go there ,the atmosphere and food, service outstanding.
Food and service was great. Was a bit noisy but we were near the kids playgeound
Sticky drink menu
Beautiful venue, great ambience and great food but need to improve on the customer service aspects; venue felt dirty and staff didn't appear to be in-tune to the customers.
We booked a table for 14 got there on time half tables and chairs were taken bye other people
Then not everyone there as we just got there and had menus pushed in our faces told to hurry up order as we only have one hour to eat drink and leave few of the mums didn’t finish there meals and we where told to leave as our time it now completely up staff was rude very dissatisfied
Have been here a few times since it’s reopened & have been impressed every time. The pork belly & rump are the best you’ll find anywhere. Couldn’t be more accommodating of my celiac partner. Highly recommend.
Great, well priced and efficient happy staff. Noise could be a factor for an intimate meal but overall will absolutely be back.
This was our first time dinning at the court house and we had an outstanding experience. Our waitress went above and beyond unfortunately did not get her name but she was a young blonde lady who's attention to detail was out standing. The food was amazing complements to the chief. It was very busy but you could still move around and there was enough room so no one was breaching the covid plan.
We had a great lunch at the Courthouse. The recent renovations of this pub have resulted in s a great atmosphere. The bistro space is spacious and perfect for families. You don’t feel cramped in the space with nice round tables for groups as well as booths and tables for couples and smaller groups.
Food is fresh and well presented. Great choice. Generous meals and great choices for kids too.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
The only downside the day was that my menu choice was not available and we’d not been told this when welcomed and handed our menus. It meant that when I went to order (orders are taken at a central counter) I was caught off guard and then felt pressured by the maître d to choose something quickly and as though I was holding up the line. This meant I ordered the first familiar thing my eyes fell to - fish and chips - but with more time or a suggestion similar to what I had initially picked I think I would have chosen something different. I just was made to feel awkward by that particular staff member. She just seemed to be very busy and not wanting to be held up by me and my order.
Most other staff however were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Great Food, well priced and good serving size.
Staff were very friendly and easily accommodated changes in our booking at short notice. Food was great. Steaks melted in mouth.
Exceptional service, very friendly staff, great atmosphere - the place looks and feels very inviting .. well done guys !
Everything was perfect except for the young waitress. She was obrupt on more than one occasion. There is a way to speak to people and her approach was not appreciated.
The menu was wide in range and was appropriately priced, staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the barstaff made a delightful Passionfruit Mojito. Will definitely be back!
Absolutely fantastic food and drink. Helpful staff and very vibes atmosphere.
First time ... wonderful lunch ... you had me at Pimms on tap... we will return very soon
My second time there for lunch and find it very enjoyable.
Please view email complaint sent through earlier. Tabouleh is not Quinoa!
All aspects of the experience were very pleasant. Courteous and helpful staff, generous and tasty meals at reasonable prices. Would definitely return on our trip to Tamworth again.
A great atmosphere. Great food, staff is extremely lovely, lots of space.
Awesome food & waitress was extremely friendly :)
Great atmosphere and surrounds. Food is yummy. Too noisy making it difficult to talk and long wait for drinks.
My partner and I went out for our first date night since having our first baby. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was beautiful. Will definitely visit again!
Had a great meal and the staff were friendly and helpful
I love the ease of booking online & being able to easily manage changes to the booking myself. The service today was outstanding! I couldn't praise our server enough. She was fantastic at anticipating our needs & so cheery & delightful. The meals were very nice all round & drinks were mixed perfectly! We had a very enjoyable lunch. Thank you.
Food definitely has not improved! One person in my group asked for well done steak and it came out blue! And the prawn pizza has 5 prawns, was tasteless and the base rock hard. Not enjoyable at all!
Lovely food, nice staff!!! The atmosphere is fantastic.
It took 2 people at the register to take the order. The salad was old and limp & inedible. Small amount of fish inside a huge fatty batter. The 2 beers and a lemon & lime bitters at $28 was outlandish!
I love the atmosphere. Food good. The only thing is when you had the front and back door left open. We were covered in flies. Its ashame when you eat inside
What a pleasant surprise with the renovations. Well done.
Food was lovely but Hubby's meal was underdone. They happily fixed the issue
Unfortunately we had multiple issues with our table not ready (despite booking), then when they asked where we would like to sit we were told that area wasn't available. A meal on the menu was not available to order that day. One meal was forgotten also. The restaurant was rather noisy and doors were open letting a lot of flies and heat in. Not a very good overall experience.
good vibe, presentation good with helpful staff.
food was delicious and served quickly once ordered
We found it very noisy and it was difficult to have a conversation with others at the table. We have been both Friday & Saturday nights when there were maximum numbers.
We had heard bad reviews about the food here but as foodies wanted to give it a go for ourselves. We requested a table outside and were seated at a low table, but due to partners bad back requested a high top and was accommodated immediately. The menu had some good options but because of the bad reviews I was hesitant to order something I wanted to try so just stuck with a steak sandwich (cant mess up a steak sandwich) with chips and diane sauce (which was amazing - well done). My partner on the other hand wasn't very impressed with his ribeye (meat wasn't quite the right cut for a ribeye and was quite fatty). The baked kale on it looked terrible on the plate - presentation for this dish was poor and lacked any thought - it was dark and dull and incredibly overpriced for what was served. The new outdoor area looks fantastic and it was a really nice vibe. Would definitely come back with a group of friends, great time outdoors during summer - maybe some outdoor mister sprays to be considered as it was quite warm and lots of bugs/mozzies - we do live in Australia though right.
Everything was wonderful.
Just an issue with flies. We sat indoors, and had to constantly swipe flies out of our food.
Hopefully they get it sorted somehow.
Had a lovely meal. Good size, good service and very pleasant ambiance. So nice to have such a venue in Tamworth.
Amazing service from all staff.
Staff was wonderful and friendly.
Meals were to die for, they were amazing.
