About Us - The Courtyard Wombourne

About Us

The Courtyard is owned by husband and wife team Simon and Louise.  Our aim is to offer a different dining experience in Wombourne, an area well served by coffee shops and pubs but lacking a local restaurant.

Join us for dinner or lunch, fine wine, craft beer and gin or attend one of our regular events in a warm and welcoming environment all in the heart of Wombourne.
