The Courtyard ismy top pick for a night of unpretentious fun with a couple of close friends. The atmosphere is designed to promote playful conversation, from the eclectic decorations (garden gnomes feature heavily), to the selection of games behind the bar (naked Twister is featured, but I have never seen anyone select naked twister). Quite simply The Courtyard wants you to have fun.
As well as drinks, games, and music you can hear yourself talk over (imagine!), The Courtyard features a range of well executed savoury snacks. I can recommend the barbecue chicken wings, and the crinkle cut fries. Servings are pretty generous, so make sure you can commit.
The Courtyard is the kind of place you can imagine yourself becoming a regular at. Do yourself a favour and go play a game of Jenga along with your beer. Maybe don't be the first person to break out the naked Twister, though.
