“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Had a few bar meals here and must say it is cheap, and fairly good value for money. But no way is it great.

Good things like home made chips, but that last time I ate here, last week, the chips were under cooked and hard in the middle. Not being able to cook chips correctly is not good!

The ham sandwich was ok but basic, cheap pappy bread. The salad accompaniment was a joke, a small piece of lettuce, 2 slices of pepper and a quarter of a small tomato, no dressing.

Don't get me wrong, for an up market transport cafe this is good, but no way is it 5 stars and restaurant.

Also they have Timmy Taylors Landlord, which is not kept very well at all, so sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad!

“Great, hearty food - truckers, make sure you visit here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten here with my fiancee and friends for breakfast quite a few times over the past few years and it never fails to come up to standard. Last ate there 17/2/13 for breakfast and even though we'd not eaten there for quite a while, the food was just as tasty and good value for money. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. I'd guess if you were in the middle of a long journey and came across The Stockyard, you'd feel your luck was in, no overpriced plastic food here, all freshly cooked and satisfying.

“An oasis off the M18”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Do not be put off by the fact that this is a truck stop, the inside will amaze you. The soft lighting in the bar, the beams and the open fire give it a very olde worlde feel. The food though not Michelin standard is very very good. The staff and service is second to none. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays there is an excellent karaoke and on Thursdays and Saturdays there is a superb organist. The prices are very reasonable and for comfort and relaxation it is an oasis for the traveler, be they in a car or a lorry.
