The Court has been our family's local for 20 years and it's always been great. The staff are friendly, the food is fantastic and there's a decent selection of real ales on tap. Since Trevor and his family took over the pub they've only made things better. The Sunday carvery is well worth booking a table for if you enjoy high-quality meat and generous portions.
