Popped in here for a bit of Father's Day lunch. Great homemade food and tip top service. Really enjoyed the lobster Thermidor main and the chicken parfait and brioche starter. In fact all of the savoury dishes were to a good standard. The place really excels with its deserts, I could have eaten them all, beautifully presented and each and... More

Visiting Stamford, we lunch at The Yard every time. This is perhaps our sixth visit. Great location, excellent food brilliantly cooked, attentive service and reasonable prices. We had the confit chicken & choriso risotto and salmon & dill tagliatelle followed by a memorable chocolate parfait with peanut brittle & honey. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

The wife and I visited on a Saturday night for a celebration meal because she had recently got a new job and we fancied going somewhere a little special than the place we usually go with the kids. It didn't start well when we were showed to our table. It was positioned in the middle of the conservatory between two... More

We had a really lovely family lunch today. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was all fantastic, and suited both the in laws (who we were treating) and our two children. The chips were fantastic (the boys tell me). We also enjoyed the building itself and looking at the old photos of Stamford - my... More

A beautiful hidden gem of a restaurant in our beautiful stone-walled town of Stamford. I believe a restaurant isn't worth a good review as a one-off visit, but a regular time-after-time situation. My husband and I regularly visit The Yard for evening dinner at the weekends, and sometimes on a Thursday evening. Their customer service is second to none, even... More

We had always been put off from visiting Jim's Yard, (under the previous owners) as the menu appeared to never change and was almost entirely fish based, which is heaven for my wife but not appealing to my carnivore tastes. No.3, however, has a more varied menu with something to suit most tastes. We went there for our wedding anniversary... More

Tucked away off Ironmongers Street it is a little oasis of peace and quiet. Excellent food and staff. It goes from strength to strength. Very tasty and imaginative food.

Tucked away off Ironmonger Street in the centre of town, this beautiful restaurant has the best food in town and indeed in the area. It has a large terrace for warm weather, a lovely conservatory and spacious upstairs dining area. Two of us had fish and chips which is just better than anywhere else. The cod is juicy and flaky,...
