Gavin opens The Courtyard Wombourne

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, officially opened the restaurant which is now under new ownership

The Courtyard Wombourne is owned by Louise and Simon Ward, a couple with over 25 years hospitality experience. Both successful business owners, Louise owns a bakery company based in Wombourne and Simon owns a wine tasting business.

With Chef Peter Clark on board, who was previously a sous chef at the Inn at Shipley, the couple has ambitious plans for the restaurant and offer fantastic menus. During weekday lunchtimes (Wednesday to Saturday) they offer snacks, coffee and cakes, as well as evening meals from Thursday to Saturday, and a traditional roast on a Sunday. Alongside this, they offer Afternoon Tea and beer/wine tasting.

Gavin opened the restaurant to the public and said a few words about all the hard work Louise and Simon have put into getting the restaurant up and running.

Commenting on the visit, Gavin said: " It was such a pleasure to officially open The Courtyard Wombourne last week and to meet with owners Louise and Simon Ward. The new restaurant will make a wonderful addition to Walkers Way. I wish them all the very best and look forward to hopefully having the chance to visit again in the not too distant future."
