Went to the Goods Yard to meet a friend for lunch. They have now introduced a system whereby you need to insert your car registration into a machine by the bar or you could get fined, this is probably to stop people abusing their car park. We hadn't booked but they found us a table. It was quite busy but... More

The Goods Yard is a magnet for the locals (especially those heading for 'a certain age') in Broadstone, as its only competition is a Wetherspoon's. Perhaps it is a victim of its success. As it is within walking distance for me, we sometimes meet friends there for a drink at weekends. However, it gets very busy, so seats and tables... More

In response to the negative reviews I am seeing The Goods Yard get based on its lack of high chairs… Let me just say THANK YOU for not providing high chairs! So often I will go to an ADULT establishment for some quiet/relaxing ADULT time only to have the moment stolen from me as soon as some parent thinks it’s... More

Came in with our 1 year old baby. Asked if they had a children's menu, were told yes so bought drinks each. Then sat down at a table but told we'd have to be finished within the hour if we wanted to sit in the restaurant and not the bar. We then asked for a high chair to be told... More

We had a family meal here to celebrate a birthday and had booked weeks in advance, we called to ensure we would be able to use two highchairs for the toddler and 10 month old with us. When we arrived there were no highchairs available for use at all, this wasn't too much of a problem for the two year... More

We were a table of 4 booked in advance on a " table pouncer" deal. We had visited in the past but only ever had drinks and whilst some might say, "expensive " you did find the clientele to be more mature and the ambience some what more conservative. This obviously lends to the atmosphere created for those wanting a... More

A little expensive and at times, noisy. However, the food is good quality and the bar full of interesting people

Burgers are usually great here but the last 2 times they were dry and over cooked, I did point this out to the waitress who said she would inform the the kitchen and that was it, considering a burger cost £13 I think that's a bit rubbish
