This is a great restaurant in Wexford town. When busy in the evening it had a certain great feel to it. The kitchen crew and waiters were working there apron’s off. On our visit the Early Bird Specials were still going on, but we also chose from A la Carte. The Early Bird is a good value, but the choices... More

Our waiter seemed to be learning the ropes but did a great job without being too overbearing. Food lived up to all expectations. All our party enjoyed their... More

Tasty food, properly cooked. Menu is modern, uses local ingredients and is presented beautifully. I had duck salad, (an Asian twist) and cod from the early bird menu, husband had moules and then lamb cutlets. We were too full for dessert, sadly. Wine etc is so-o-o expensive in Eire, so he had a couple of beers and I chose two... More

We were feeling depressed because of the weather, we live near Wexford town, so we decided to eat out. We chose The Yard and so glad we did. I was suffering pain with arthritis and needed TLC, and this was the very place for this. From the moment we entered the restaurant, John treated us with care and attention. Because... More

Went here with my husband on Thursday night. Busy little restaurant good staff. Good food. We both had the steak. The only thing i missed was the mushrooms and onions as a steak is not as good without them. But we still had plenty of food.

Beautiful meal athough the difference between the early bird menu and ordinary menu was minimal. They could offer a better deal here

We had dinner here last week. There were 4 in our party. Food was average. My husband had to send his steak back as it was impossible to chew. He asked for a whiskey and was told very rudely by the manager he was not getting any more drink. We felt this was because he complained about the steak. Usually... More
