The grade II listed building was taken over in 2018 from previous owners who ran it at Harvey’s Café Bar.

The Bolton News:

Customers at The Courthouse can enjoy dishes including four different cuts of steaks, burgers, sharing plates, loaded fries, bao buns, salmon and duck dishes.

It underwent a £350,000 refurbishment when it was taken over and in 2022 it underwent a spectacular reopening to welcome new and old customers back in.

The year was a good one for the business as it also picked up OpenTable Diner’s Choice Award for 2022.

The Bolton News:

Food is served at the venue from Tuesday through to Sunday from 12pm, and customers can buy a drink up until last orders which is typically at 9.30pm.

The bar’s most popular drink is believed to be its Ice Ice Baby cocktail.
