A Family-Run Cafe Restaurant

The Courtyard is a botanically inspired café/restaurant with an emphasis on sustainability and locally sourced produce.

Once the site of a working Dairy, it was then converted into a Dairy shop and then in the recent past a café.

Founded in 2019, it is owned and managed by Gail and Shane, a local couple which between them have over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry. Having managed pubs and restaurants, both as a couple and separately they decided to put all their efforts, and passion into their own premises.

We are a small but eclectic team, from a variety of backgrounds, which works well when we are thinking of new and innovative ideas. Most of all we all have a passion for sustaining the environment (half of the team are Vegan) which we are proud to say is part of our ethos.

At the back of the restaurant is a courtyard area, where you can enjoy a bit of seclusion, away from the hustle and bustle of the main High Street.

Our menu is divided into two sections, one for non-Vegans (Fauna) and one for Vegans (Flora), so parties with different dietary requirements can enjoy a meal or a drink out together in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Where possible we endeavour to source our produce locally and sustainably, so come on in for some friendly banter, and enjoy our freshly cooked produce, a cup of our speciality Share Trade Coffee, or even a refreshing alcoholic beverage.
