I come here once a week and my partner and I LOVE this place. I cannot speak more highly of the food and service, I've eaten at some of the best restaurants in London, Sydney and Tokyo the Court House is up there in my top picks. The Moreton Bay Bugs are incredible! Thank you for being consistently amazing!

It was my 60th, so you want to get that one right. Location: amazing. Historic building with views over the bay. Staff: friendly, courteous, efficient and unobtrusive. The best! Food: perfect oysters, delicious barra (and my companion's dish, mixed shellfish/crustaceans inc. Moreton Bay bugs, perfect, also); ideal French blanc de blancs (reasonably priced). Take the time to stroll in the... More

The owners have preserved the historic aspect of the old Cleveland court house. Fire places are lit to provide winter warmpth and air conditioning keeps diners cool in summer. You may choose to dine in the main dining room where a pianist entertains on Friday and Saturday evenings, or you can book a table in the privacy of one of... More

They have a crackling fire happening as well as beautiful pianist romancing the night away. A real... More

Considering they catered for lots of large groups the food as usual was excellent Venue where ever you are seated is lovely but my favourite place is at the front in the cells where in winter the fire is lite and it's very intimate and cosy I have been many times but always save the visit for special events like...
