    It was a lovely restaurant but only had one selection for the meal deal. It was a nice meal, pasta and desert a small piece of cheesecake. If you were a big eater you would have wanted more. A lovely lunch time meal.

    Friendly welcome upon arrival. The service was quick but the waiters were trying to be too helpful thus causing irritating slip ups in service at the dining table.
    Food and presentation was superb and el dante vegetables cooked to perfection. Ambience was good.
    I would certainly return for another meal but on a special occasion.

We say…

Within the heart of the stunning Courtyard hotel is the Garden restaurant; a peaceful, bright and airy venue that  is ideal for diners looking for a relaxed dining experience. The Courtyard Luxury Lodge is in Stanwick, near Wellingborough, and is easily accessible from the A45, making it a prime venue for meeting friends and family with plenty of parking and beautiful grounds where you can take a pre, or post, meal meander.

Recently extended and refurbished, the Garden Restaurant is within a beautiful conservatory that offers plenty of light during the daytime before simmering down with ambient lighting to create an intimate atmosphere with a relaxed and mellow ambience. The dining room features light wooden tables, simple place settings and comfortable leather seating, striking the perfect balance between charming rustic and contemporary design. With delicate chandeliers suspended from the ceiling, the Garden Restaurant is a venue that offers guests a memorable dining experience without and pretentiousness.

The food on offer is a classic British affair that celebrates and emphasises the natural flavours of the ingredients rather than overcomplicating them or using flamboyant presentation to mask a lack of flavour. You can expect to enjoy dishes such as slow roasted belly of pork with a creamed parsnip puree and a honey and rosemary glaze, baked mushroom cannelloni in a rich tomato and basil sauce with a mature cheddar glaze, and Cajun-spiced fillet of red snapper served with a coconut and thyme ice and peas and beans.

The Garden restaurant has all the amenities you expect from a 5 star guest house with a large function room suitable for weddings, corporate events or family celebrations in the newly decorated barn that comes complete with oak beams which fills the space with character.

The Garden Restaurant at The Courtyard Hotel, Stanwick, really is a fantastic retreat with a reasonably priced menu boasting fine seasonal produce, a stunning location and friendly and attentive staff.
