Delicious food and a great atmosphere

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... read 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

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.

Having recently arrived in Stamford, No3 The Yard has been mentioned to us a number of times as a good place to eat. Having tried it out Sat 18th Apr, we now know why. Starters we selected were Mushroom vol au vent & Chicken liver parfait. We tried each others and agreed that they were both very tasty. For mains... More

I was treated to lunch at The Yard by a friend who was really impressed on her last visit. It was a lovely day and the conservatory table we were shown was perfect. My first impression was very favourable due to the snow white starched linen napkins! Always a sign of quality and effort I find. The service was friendly... More

I've recently moved to Stamford and was recommended The Yard by a friend. I went along with an old friend and it was the perfect setting in which to catch up in. The restaurant is set in a pretty courtyard, tucked away from the main street so you forget that you're in the middle of a busy town centre. The... More

We booked this restaurant yesterday and it is the best meal I have had in a long time. I had black pudding and bacon to start which was out of this world followed by salmon which was cooked to perfection. Not a great deal of choice for a vegetarian so my boyfriend had mushroom risotto however again top marks. Lovely... More

Quite by accident, as we were searching the internet for something else, we came across the restaurant known as No. 3 The Yard. Tucked away off Ironmonger Street in Stamford, it really is a find. The quiet secluded courtyard for fair weather dining gives way to two inside dining areas on the ground and first floors. In this historic part... More

Ate here on a Saturday night, a group of 4. The restaurant seemed busy. The food was pretty good, my only complaint was the lamb was slightly over and tough for my tastes. I wish I'd had the fish and chips one of my fellow diners had. £140 for 4 people.

i have been back several times since the restaurant changed hands and am pleased to say that it still meets my expectations. Not surprising as the old chef is now the owner. Try their lunchtime fish and chips for £10, including a glass of wine.
