I have dined in both the Yard & Little Yard. Both are fantastic . However the little yard is my absolute favourite . It's a little piece of heaven for me. Amazing tapas, great wine. Such pleasant staff. I've been here with a large group of friend's, my husband & I've taken my kids. Every time it is consistent &... More

Love the Yard ! only one problem, I cant get past the steak, I promise to try something different but I always end up ordering the steak, the reason is that it is excellent and consistantly good! Family and friends have tried lots of the other dishes and the Yard never disappoints. Great place and good value too!

Thought we were going to a basic cafe for a coffee and sandwich, what a pleasant surprise! Most obliging staff, unusual decor, great food and the toilets, well, I won't spoil the surprise, just go before you have an alcoholic drink! Great altogether, loved it!!

I was in The Yard before but wasn't blown away. But The Little Yard (entrance from Main Street) is such a cute place! For such a little place it's great, tapas (and sushi) is my favourite ever, i was in Barcelona and Amsterdam so i experienced proper tapas first hand, with way more to pick from, but for the size...

You simply can't go wrong by choosing to eat at The Yard; great local cuisine with a twist; proper healthy portions and flawlessly friendly and prompt service - that's The Yard for you.

Fantastic tapas and wine, it is snug seating arrangement but very informal. Loved all the tapas tried and portions are plentiful, really enjoyable, great staff and great value, highly recommended.

Very nice food, great vibe to the restaurant, love the style of it. Staff are very nice people, however, I just thought the service was too slow. It took far too long to be seated and far too long to get a drink. It won't prevent me from returning however, as the food really is great!

We checked out the main restaurant and the little tapas bar around the corner and opted for the more informal place. The two restaurants have some crossover but are separated by a curtain. The tapas bar only has a few tables. We didn't have a reservation and they were busy, but we were squeezed into a table right next to... More

This place were great in accomodating us. We were arriving late on a Saturday and our taxi driver rang for us and they took us quite late. The place is nice well laid out. So many restaurants pile tables in but it was nice and spacious. Food was great. We got the surf and turf for 28e but the steak... More
