The Courthouse Hotel is one of Tamworth's oldest pubs. It has recently undergone an award winning transformation and now its heritage facade is a prominent feature on the main street.

The renovated Courthouse boasts coal fired grilled steaks, a large outdoor courtyard, intimate public bar and family friendly bistro. It has a proud history of bringing locals and strangers together. As it goes without saying: There are no strangers here at The Courthouse Hotel, only friends you have not met. We strive every day to ensure that this doesn't change!

We like to keep things pretty simple at the The Courthouse Hotel, with our ethos being "simple things, done well." Our service style will set us apart from other offerings in town with our staff being energetic, friendly, well presented and customer focused. Our food offering follows on the same lines; simple, fresh and cooked with care.

Our kitchen is open 7 days a week for lunch from 12pm to 3pm and dinner from 5pm to 9pm.

    Burger was an unpalatable texture. Tacos were delicious. However I was annoyed by the misleading advertising of "Taco Tuesday, kids eat free. " This is only if you are a member and the kids can't have a taco as their meal. We only went because of this advertising and had intended to go every Tuesday after an extracurricular activity. I will not be going back as I feel I was deceived. The advertising should have read "become a member and receive etc, "

    The app did not allow me to adjust the number of attendees over 12 and it would not let me leave a note. I tried calling by telephone a number times to no answer and as I could not update via app, needed to go into the Courthouse in person. Otherwise food was great and atmosphere was great.

    The Courthouse HotelResponded on June 7, 2022Hey Michelle, we're really sorry to hear that you had difficultly getting in contact with us, we have been experiencing technical difficulties with our lines. We are happy to hear you did enjoy the rest your experience at The Courthouse, we hope you serve you again soon Michelle! Cheers.

    Very disappointed in the meal I ordered. I ordered 2x lamb cutlets and swapped out mash for veg (you only offered slaw or salad- no veg), so I got slaw. I literally received a plate with 2 cutlets and a small bowl of slaw for $26. I looked at my friend's salmon meal (a complete meal with meat and salad and grains) and nachos (a massive bowl) and they got so much more value for money! I was so disappointed. Sad that the only options were slaw or salad, no veg. Will not be going back for a while. The lamb cutlets weren't even amazing for $26.

    We had a great meal with friends. The restaurant was very loud and the catch up dinner with friends was very hard to talk and hear each other. This did not take away from a very nice meal and food. Overall would give a 4.5/5

    Normally pleased with everything at the Courthouse but sadly this visit was a let down. Staff dropped the meals to our table and then never returned at any point throughout the time we were there. We could see the young girl who dropped our food standing at the door talking to other staff for the remainder of our visit, sadly we wanted to send a steak back that was a little under cooked but we couldn’t get the attention of any staff to do so. I hope the service improves and goes back to being decent.
