I must declare that I have been a regular at Lake Yard for 15 years; indeed I am a Lake Yard Club member. I hadn't previously thought of leaving a review here as I am an established regular but, on reflection I thought it appropriate. After all, I'm not judging the place based upon just one meal, rather from a... More

As a non "member" I hosted a family group luncheon of eleven people recently. After a starter course for most guests they then selected what they wanted from both the normal and "daily specials menu" and then most had a pudding with tea or coffee after. We had two bottles of white wine, a few beers/non alcoholic drinks - nothing... More

Went here for lunch with a friend and we got there early in order to get a choice of tables (with a view). There are two menus - a daily specials and the Classics which does not change - standard fare such as Club sandwich, fish & chips etc. Service was good and the food was OK. The Club sandwich... More

It was our 44th Wedding Anniversary and we chose to come here after the success of two previous visits. The young staff were delightful and looked after us well, without being over fussy. The two meals were cooked to perfection - my wife's john dory could not have been fresher if we had just hooked it off the quayside. A... More

If you're afloat and you fancy a bite to eat, try the Lake Yard Club at Hamworthy (BH15 4DT). The lunch menu is quite small but very tasty and not too expensive (i.e various types of BBQ sausages at £2 each and a selfserve salad bar at £5). Wine is a shade expensive (Viognier at £24.50 and some of the... More

Great little place, great food but it's the staff that make it worth the visit. Sit in the bar with it's sail ceiling or out on the deck looking over the marina. Good varied menu, well presented food and at good prices, also have a specials board - all served with a smile.

Went back here for a second time definitely not disappointed. Took friends and we all had seafood that impressed. The service was good too. Would recommend this to anyone. Can't wait to return. The price was ok for the meal too.

Visited here with my close girlfriends for my 40th. Fairly nice setting until a boat starts up right near the waters edge and all you can smell is diesel. Food nice but a dessert spoonful of potatoes and 2 pieces of asparagus with your chicken is a little measly. Service I have to say was atrocious, we were served our... More

I went to Lake Yard for the first time on Friday with friends and family. It took some finding but we were not disappointed as the setting is excellent and on a warm summers evening it must be superb as there are several areas than can be opened up directly onto the boat yard making it light and airy. Our... More

Right on the harbour edge - the old boat show room. Somewhat limited menu but what views and no where better on a summer`s day/evening.
