“Best place to eat in Stamford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Jim's Yard came highly recommended by friends and did not disappoint. It is tucked away in the town centre, but well worth finding! It feels like you're eating in the best of continental bistros, staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the cooking is excellent. We had a relaxed lunch in the conservatory and we resolved to return. We noticed that the menu bore similarities to another of our favourite restaurants - the Marquess of Exeter at Lyddington - only to be told that the chefs had collaborated! We have already booked our return to Jim's Yard.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Last minute booking on Saturday evening, small menu but the food was delicious, imaginative and well presented. £50 for 2 starters, 2 mains & 2 glasses of wine.
Lovely ambience, could have sat there all night relaxing if one of us hadnt had to drive home!

“A great spot to stop off for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Five of us wanted a bite to eat on Saturday and found Jim's Yard hidden in a back alley. It is a smallish place with a good ambience and a very good menu. Fish and chips with a glass of white wine for £10. I had the risotto and it was full of distinctive flavours. Service was knowledgeable and engaging with a personal feel. Well worth a look in if you're in Stamford..

“Great food and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We go to Jims yard few times a year. It never disappoints. Good, varied menu. Good service, knowledgeable staff - although not always the friendliest. The food is always perfect, so tasty, as is the wine list. We have never had cause to complain. You pay for what you get, hence the slightly more expensive prices.
