We arrived in without a booking and although they were clearly very busy, we got seated in a very short period of time. The Staff very friendly and welcoming. The food took a little while to come out, but it was well worth the wait! Such good food, really tasty and try as I might, I couldn't manage to finish... More

This place came highly recommended by the staff of Ferrycarrig Hotel and numerous taxi drivers so we were really disappointed at the treatment we received when we visited on Friday 17th July for lunch. We had a beautiful table in their garden which was idylic until a strong gust of wind blew over a glass of water and a glass... More

Everything good I read about this restaurant is absolutely true!! I had a fabulous meal here recently. Having decided on a main course and dessert from the early bird menu, I chose the steak for mains. Meant to be an 8 oz. sirloin steak served with a salad & chips, I was presented with what must have been at least... More

Last minute booking whilst in town. Very accommodating restaurant - nice welcome. One particular staff member, I can't recall her name (maybe Nicola?) was lovely and down to earth. The food was lovely, so was the atmosphere plus the "menu deal" for a 4 course and complimentary tickets to the Century Stores is great value. The deserts are to die... More

Inventive menu, and choice for veggies too, a rare thing. Tables well spaced, no intrusive music and excellent service. All veg grown in their own gardens and a fabulous organic wine.

We were in Wexford for the weekend, wandering down the street and happened to stop by The Yard. At first glance I wasn't too sure (the cafe at the front has one of those deli style counters, which I do find a bit off putting - but that's just me). So glad we went through to the back, we were...
