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.

                              I am very upset about what should've been a pre-theatre dining treat. Food cold, had clearly been stood. Portion sizes very small. Seats and tables grubby. We had to eat again later, after spending £54 on lunch, which is not acceptable. We hadn't budgeted for this and it will cause repercussions on our budget until the end of the month. I am angry, but more so upset.

                              Visiting liverpool theatre. I read the positive reviews with regards to the food and decided tobook a table but unfortunately we really found the food disappointing. I appreciate that currently the restaurant industry is struggling for chefs and staff and we felt that a good 'chef' did not cook our meal?? Table of three, We ordered 2 x shrimps one of which was fine but the other looked very different and dark brown in colour and texture, didnt taste good. however staff quickly notified, they were happy to replace or offer something else. no probs there, good service we thought. Thankyou! My panneer kebab, with salads was very delicious. Pasta dish very bland and disappointing, not really anything to complain about but very tasteless and bland! Hake very nice but white wine sauce went back because extremely salty. Yuk! Again staff acknowledged and happy to take appropriate steps to replace the sauce. The staff were great, the bill was discounted a little to reflect our poor eating experience but it would have been so good to have the view of the magnificent st georges hall with a positive food experience to match. Good vibes and ambience but food needs to be improved.

                              Loved this restaurant, we got sat in the corner of the large glass window, so had brilliant people watching views. With lovely food and great service! Couldn’t recommend enough.

                              This is a lovely dining experience, we keep going back. This restaurant is so handy after a show at the Royal Court theatre. The food is good value for money and service is impeccable. There is always a lovely atmosphere here, everyone having a great time.

                              We had a pre-theatre lunch at the Courtyard. The butternut squash, apple and chilli soup was lovely and quite unusual. My husbands fish and chips were very nice he said and my sweet and sour chicken with pineapple rice was well cooked. Service was excellent, and the table by the windows was excellent for people-watching. We would go again.

                              Haven’t visited here since before lockdown. The new menu was very nice. I had the paneer starter and Hake main, thoroughly enjoyed both. My husband enjoyed his main, wagyu burger but was a little disappointed in his starter. He chose the traditional potted shrimp starter hoping for it to be like those we have had all our lives. The shrimp was nice once you got to it but the topping, traditionally clarified butter, was not at all nice. We asked what it was and we’re told spicy butter. Don’t know what kind of fat it was but it definitely wasn’t butter! Overall we enjoyed our experience. The staff were friendly and helpful and we will definitely go again.

                              We saw the Courtyard in the pocket 'Rough Guide' which gave good reviews. The restaurant was on the first floor and had great views across to Georges Hall and Lime St Station. Good varied and concise menu with an option of 2 or 3 courses at a very reasonable price. Food was very good and well presented. Service was very good with friendly and helpful staff. We would certainly go back again.

                              Worst restaurant I have visit for a long time, drinks order was wrong, both meals were wrong even though staff were told about medical requirements. Staff didn’t not once apologise for any mistakes made. Will not be visiting again

                              When we first sat down, service was a little slow to order drinks and after our order for drinks and meals was made together drinks were served pretty quickly. The food we had to wait for, but was well worth waiting for.

                              Great service from staff. Burger meal was delicious and a great portion size. Hummous and falafel meal was a little on the light side for a main meal. Pudding was super tasty. Decor was done really well and seating was comfortable. Views from the windows are lovely.

                              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.
