About Us

The Courtyard is a modern café bar set within the delightful surroundings of the Arts Centre Washington. Situated in the heart of Washington, the Arts Centre is both accessible for locals as well as for people from further a field.

The Courtyard operates a continuous cask ale programme sourcing ales from the very best micro brewers across the whole of the UK, and in doing so has introduced customers to a vast range of ales which they were unlikely to have sampled anywhere. Eight cask ales, a real cider and a perry are always available. We showcase in the region of 15 to 20 different ales every week. The range is also complemented by a good selection of bottled Belgian beers.

Excellent quality home cooked food is served daily.

The Courtyard also provides catering facilities within the Arts Centre for private or corporate hire. As an independent operator we can offer maximum flexibility in providing menus for your function. Rather than just offer set packages we can offer the organiser the opportunity to construct a menu of your choice. If you fail to find anything suitable for your function but have something in particular in mind please do ask and we will see what we can do to either provide or accommodate.
