Went here last night the 18-12-14. Service was slow we were waiting for about 5 minutes to be seen to. After we sat down we had to flag down a waiter to take our order. He was good quick and knew exactly what he was doing. The menu choice was lovely. I had risotto to start which was amazing!! My... More

A group of us ate here during the Wexford Festival. This is a busy time for the town but the restaurant didn't falter and kept to its usual high standard. The service was excellent as was our food and wine. The food is cooked to order in the open kitchen and was worth a wait.

Called in here while out Christmas shopping with my mother. Had heard a lot about this place and wanted to try it out. Its a lovely restaurant, imagine it would be very nice on a summers day in the courtyard area. You can watch the chefs cook from your table. The menu was great. Varied enough to cater for everyone.... More

Dropped in early one Friday evening without booking the place was very busy, however, we got a table no problem. We weren't told that, is normal when you drop in without booking: "We need this table back at 8 O'Clock" type of remark. So happy from the off. Shown to our table by a gentleman who was happy to be... More

I have visited The Yard on multiple occasions- with both small groups and large- and I have never been disappointed. Staff, setting, food and prices cannot be faulted. Early bird menu is particularly reasonable. I am getting hungry even thinking about this restaurant! So many dishes to recommend but the blondie for dessert really stands out. I honestly struggle to... More

We had lunch for four last week during a busy opera-festival season. The food was delicious. Just the right-sized portions for daytime. The place was buzzing but we were served very promptly by friendly staff. Although they were closing a at 3 (which we knew beforehand), we weren't rushed or made to feel under pressure. I always find it a... More

Happened upon the Yard on a Sunday evening recently and ended up ordering off the great value early bird menu. We had steaks (cooked perfectly) and craft beers that were spectacular (the steaks and the beers). The staff were really friendly and attentive, without being too intrusive and I loved the decor of the place, which has a really cool,... More

We have been regular lunchers at The Yard for several years, though less frequently since the children started school. There is always a good range of dishes to choose from, with daily specials in addition to the normal menu. Prices are very reasonable, staff very friendly, service great.
