Right on the edge of Poole Harbour this is a great setting, inside a boatyard. The staff were excellent but unfortunately my wife had a bad tummy the day after the meal otherwise I'd score the place as excellent all round Wine was a bit pricy, but sitting watching the sun go down you don't worry too much about that...

I have eaten at Lake yard several times over the last few years and have always enjoyed the experience, they seem to cover many bases from simple brasserie style food to the surprisingly fine dining, the fish specials are normally reasonably priced and cooked well, but the relaxed atmosphere and friendly unobtrusive service with those views are what really keep...

Every visit we have had excellent food and service. Friendly and fun! Almost like to keep this place a secret but the staff... More

Went as a couple on a Social Living deal (cod and gammon) with glass of wine and a beer paid extra for starters (cornish spratts and souflee) it was all delicious. Courteous, friendly, helpful staff in lovely surroundings overlooking the harbour.All the meals and drinks were very reasonably priced. Good atmosphere we will definitely return.

We had a bit of a struggle reaching the restaurant as the bridge from Poole was closed and as the bossy lady on sat nav did not know this, we had to ask a few times, got lost a few times, but eventually arrived! We had booked a Living Social deal, but were told that as the two choices on... More

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...
