A lovely venue with efficient table service. Sadly, the food was disappointing and what seemed promising undermined our whole experience. We phoned ahead to ask about gluten free food, especially for a pescatarian and were told there would be no problem at all, most things on the menu could be converted to gluten free. Excited, we took friends for dinner,... More

Thank for your review; for the benefit of other diners we should address a couple of points raised therein. We are glad you liked the venue and service, but equally disappointed you were not impressed by the scallop starter. Likewise we are pleased the steak and the fish & chip dishes were well received and would wish to point out... More

An interesting menu and able to cater gluten free too. Creative dishes well presented and very tasty. Our party had fish and meat dishes and all were "as they should be". Steak and fish portions more than ample sized. Extensive wine list fairly priced.

We have eaten her a few times since it changed to No 3 The Yard. The food has remained consistently very good, with a good menu and wine list. The fixed price meals are good value and there is a light bites menu which I haven't tried but also look good value for money. We have only been for lunch... More

A really charming evening outside, eating in the old courtyard. Food was great, service was attentive. Well worthwhile.

Dropped in here to have lunch with my Mum and boyfriend, it is a lovely setting, and first impressions were great!

Visited Stamford for a long weekend and, having read the reviews on T/A, decided to pay a visit. We sat in the courtyard on a lovely day. It was very pleasant, the staff were welcoming and the food was delicious and well presented. Well worth a visit.

Evening meal in the courtyard last week - had visited some time ago when known as Jim's Yard - still offers excellent food wine and service. The halibut dish is to die for!! A bit pricey but well worth the extra cost!!!

We stumbled across this hidden gem whilst searching for lunch, having taken a break on a long and tedious journey. We only needed a light snack but for the whole time we were treated like fine diners, the staff could not have been more attentive or accommodating. We ate under a pergola on the patio, surrounded by sweet smelling plants... More
