The renovated Courthouse boasts coal fired cooked steaks, a large outdoor courtyard, intimate public bar and family friendly bistro. It has a proud history of bringing locals and strangers together. As it goes without saying: There are no strangers here at The Courthouse Hotel, only friends you have not met. We strive every day to ensure that this doesn't change!

We like to keep things pretty simple at the The Courthouse Hotel, with our ethos being "simple things, done well." Our service style will set us apart from other offerings in town with our staff being energetic, friendly, well presented and customer focused. Our food offering follows on the same lines; simple, fresh and cooked with care.

Our kitchen is open 7 days a week for lunch from 12pm to 3pm and dinner from 5pm to 9pm.

Didn’t accept dine vouchers.
Had to wait at bar for a long time while changed keg. Bar staff could have brought beers over when ready.
My meal was fine but not good value.

Sadly the meal was not pleasant. chicken Slouvaki was definitely not what I had experienced when I had first at opening weekend and sadly my visits since have seen a downward trend in quality and taste in good. Apologies but hopefully you will take feedback on board to improve. We want to support local business but it is hard when the food is not anything special

The food was below average for the money. One of our party had a meat pizza and tasted just like a frozen one from the supermarket but cost over $20. It was a shame cause we were there a month before for a birthday and it was nice. I would definitely think twice before going back

Good pub menu and very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is good, with a decent wine list - though a bit limited by the glass and at
The pricier end when buying by the glass

My friend and I had lunch in the standard seating area. Whilst the place was crowded the atmosphere of the noise was pleasing. Kids had the opportunity to have their face painted, a nice touch. The service and food was outstanding. I had flat head and chips which were both plentiful and cooked very well. All in all for a wet Saturday afternoon we had a very pleasant time.

Has to be the number 1 place in Tamworth to catch up with friends to socialize and have a bite to eat - steak was cooked to perfection, very generous sized meals with great presentation, clean and tidy, fast efficient and extremely friendly service and the atmosphere was amazing ! Love The Courthouse !!

Got there 10 mins before our booking time, only 3 of the 20 of our booking could come in as it was at capacity, then walked in to find we did not have a table, other patrons took it! This has happened twice to me now and I know it’s happened to others, really need to be more strict with bookings as it’s not fair others take our booking before we arrive. Was there for a birthday and everyone left after lining up for an hour as we couldn’t get our booking anyway

Great venue & seating. Most of the staff very friendly and helpful. Great chicken wings.
However:
The music is far too loud for enjoyable conversation. After 9, crank it up, before then, keep it understated.
The bar was dirty and sticky which is a turn off. Especially in Covid times.
No one picked up our glasses, which meant we eneded up with quite a collection as we were a large party.
The usual confusion with meals & a few wrong / forgotten meal orders. Please remind your staff to stay cool & not be rude when there is an issue (of your making).
Lots of potential since the reno, just need to get your act together, good service is rewarded - poor service is no longer tolerated as there are plenty of options.

When we arrived they were struggling to keep up with the customers but that died down within 1/2 and hour. It was a little noisy but it was busy. Overall a very good experience and we will be back.
