Good and a little bad

I love the yard bar. As far as I am concerned I like the interior look and decor and it has a good atmosphere. The staff are really pleasant and helpful. It's really dog friendly both inside and out. They don't serve food in the evening on a Monday and Tuesday as far as I am aware. We recently... read more

I often go to the Yard whether it be for a nice meal with my partner or drinks with friends. Both the food and the service is always good... the staff are polite, friendly and professional. I love the beer garden at the back, always a lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend!

We have been to this tatty bar three times (twice with a groupon voucher). Our first meal was the burgers - these were reasonable however the back room we were in was smelly and noisy with staff constantly going back and forward to the outside courtyard leaving the door wide open on a cold day. Meal 2 was on a... More

We purchased a Groupon voucher 2 Course Steak Meal for 4. The food was disappointing to say the least . . . the only starter available was Carrot Soup or Garlic Bread, the garlic bread was very greasy and I was unable to eat mine. We ordered Steak, one rare, three medium. We asked what came with the steak and... More

We booked a Groupon deal for roast beef lunch. What a let down. My beef was gristle served along with Yorkshire puddings straight from the freezer. However, my husband appeared to have a good selection of beef and enjoyed his. I have to say the selection of vegetables were cooked top perfection and tasty.

Had a few drinks out in the beer garden, lovely and peaceful. Service was excellent, polite and friendly. Drinks reasonably priced and plenty to choose from. Although we didn't stay for food it looked delicious and there were is usually some good groupon deals available.

My friend and I went for lunch, nice menu with a good variety, but far too expensive for a lunch time menu. Portion size was enough for lunch but not fantastic, certainly didn't leave you stuffed, service was pleasant enough, however we wished to go and have a smoke and were told to go outside at the back, we had...

I have never had a Spanish omelette with chips in it before, well it was not nice & very tasteless, it didn't even come with any garlic mayo as advertised. My husbands burger was very small & undercooked, as it was pink in the middle with a very small portion of chips. I think it is very over priced for... More
