The Courtyard

The Courtyard Cafe provides the perfect setting for everything from coffee over the morning papers, to alfresco lunch or a snack with family and friends – or why not try one of our legendary afternoon teas. The cafe offers a range of delicious locally sourced and produced food and is dog friendly with water bowls aplenty and our ‘Canine Corner’ to keep them occupied.

After the huge success of last year,  Bess & Barrel is making a welcome return. The wood-fired pizzas, artisan burgers, and enormous hot dogs are back with a little refresh. We look forward to welcoming you all once again.
