We popped in for a Saturday meal after Beerfest, wanting to grab something a bit farther away from all of the hubbub of 17th on a weekend. Turns out, Fiddlers Courtyard was an ideal spot for that. It wasn't overly busy and we had our choice of booths or tables. Service was excellent, the room is cozy and there are plenty of friendly locals. Great menu - great beers on tap - what more could you ask for? My vindaloo chicken was on a bed of dried out rice with a few slices of chicken and about a tablespoon of vindaloo sauce with microwaved frozen corn on the side and dollops of microwaved frozen spinach around the plate...yuck! The menu said the sauce contained broccoli and potatoes of which It did not. The mini yorkies which used to be fabulous, were not mini and were very bland. The quesadila was poorly presented and not flavorful. BTW, ALL of our meals were cold.
Just try once if u have no option.
A friend recommended fiddlers courtyard to me. I had never heard of it before but my friend raved about the menu so I decided to try it out. Glad I did. It's rare to find this kind of quality in a pub atmosphere. I was with my friend Jeremy and we both had an appetite so we started with the deep fried bacon wrapped pickles. Coated with house made cornbread and served with a chipotle mango dip.....wow. My only regret is that now I have constant cravings for this holy union of goodness. Seriously..... Try them. We also got the appy ribs which were fresher and more tender than your regular run of the mill pub staple dry ribs. For the mains Jeremy went with a steak sandwich which was on special for 7.99 and he had nothing but good things to say about it. I will have to take him at his word as he selfishly devoured it without offering a bite. I went with the shepards pie. This was quality. The mash potatoes were clearly fresh as there was none of that browned and old tasting hard outter layer I had become accustomed too at other pubs. The meat was nicely seasoned and it came with mixed greens without a hint of wilt. It was a big portion too so I took half home and enjoyed it later. Jeremy got none of it. The new owner (Ryan) stopped to by to chat for a bit. Nice young man. I would recommend this pub to anyone. It's rare to find a pub that has such a quality focused menu. What a gem.
