A friend and I on recommendation had lunch at The Yard during a Wexford shopping day. What a gem! Food was so delicious and so beautifully presented. We shared a crispy duck salad and mushroom risotto. Both dishes went beautifully together. Friendly, helpful staff were happy to provide extra crockery to allow sharing. Definitely will be back.

The restaurant looks different and interesting from outside. I was welcomed on entering the restaurant and look after straight away. Having been shown to the table I then had chance to read the menu and take in the atmosphere. The restaurant was warm, had a good feel to it and there were other diners there as well. The menu read... More

Chose the early bird option as there was plenty to choose from. Good value and big portions. Had the tastiest steak I've had in a while served with lovely crispy home cooked chips. Blondie for desert was sweet but yummy. Staff were friendly and helpful.

As a group of 6 we entered The Yard via the courtyard entrance at around 12.30 p.m. hoping to get some nice sandwiches and cake etc., for lunch. All the tables in the main area of the restaurant were unoccupied except for one where there were two people. We... More

Went for early bird on Saturday night. While the food was good the portion size was mean, I had the fish dish just 3 fork full, not what you expect when you order fish in wexford. I will not be going back
