I had lunch with friends at The Yard last week, the second time we had met there. Once again friendly professional service and an excellent meal. The wine list is well balanced, interesting and fairly priced. It is a delightful restaurant tucked away near the centre of Stamford. You can eat outside! Highly recommended

I went here with colleagues, there was a group of 6 of us. The welcome to the restaurant was fantastic, equalled by the waitresses service which she provided for the duration of our stay. (If the manager reads this and wishes to recognise the person referred to our visit was on the evening of April 30th.) The food was exceptional!... More

Lovely staff at this great little restaurant in the centre of Stamford. They have both light lunch and a full menu which covers most requirements and tastes. Lovely setting, even seating outside in a covered courtyard. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. A great find. Also whilst their food is beautifully presented and cooked I must also mention the side order of... More

We ate here recently on Saturday evening. Menu had good choice with a very reasonably priced 3 course set menu. Food was of good quality. Our evening was a little bit let down by the service which at best was lacklustre. All the staff were friendly however we felt rushed to our table on arrival, we weren't told about the... More

We had a quick lunch here a couple of weeks back and it did the job - fish and chips - no frills and quick service. A friend suggested the venue for dinner last week and we were seated upstairs. The downstairs conservatory has some ambience, but this is sadly lacking in the rather tired upstairs room. Service was prompt... More

We visited No. 3 The Yard for my boyfriend's birthday, and had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious and there plenty of options to suit most people. The wine list is also excellent, and we both enjoyed a few glasses. We were seated in the downstairs area, which is very intimate with a great atmosphere. There are just 6... More

I couldn't fault the service or the food. I frequented this establishment when it was formerly Jim's Yard and am pleased to say that the standard hasn't wavered.
