Nice local pizza joint, with a good selection of starters (including a great sharing platter). Order you Pizza by length depending on how hungry you are!

As per previous reviewer, popped in before a gig (at XOYO) as we were feeling peckish. Place was packed, but staff friendly and got us a table quickly. Ordered spinach and artichoke pizza and it was fab - light, crisp dough and really tasty. My lady had goats cheese pizza and loved it. Food and bill arrived quickly which was... More

The penne arrabiatta is awesome here. Probably the best I've ever tasted. The service is very good and the place is conveniently located near Old Street station. It's open late too.

Popped in running a bit late before a gig and asked if we could be served quickly. They said yes although they were reasonably busy and true to their word served drinks and a delicious pizza very quickly. We then got a phone call to say gig was actually starting an hour later. So we stayed for dessert and coffee.... More

I visited whilst in the area for work, and hadn't booked, but on a warm summer night, the outdoor patio was quite full, but indoors was deserted. I was seated with a menu almost instantly, however there was a considerable wait before anyone came to take a drinks order, let alone my food order. I had the calamari and a... More

They say some of the best places are things you just walk in to! We were staying at a nearby hotel and just wanted something local when we saw this location. We had a welcoming reception from staff and were really impressed with the building, which we were told was an old fire station. The pizza is brilliant, cooked how... More

We visited on Saturday night, the restaurant was two thirds full but with the general speed of service you might have thought it was packed the rafters. Every interaction with the staff took longer than necessary. A long wait at the door, a delay on the drinks, an age for the food and getting the bill was just impossible. The... More

We went to Yard on Saturday night and had an extremely disappointing meal. Firstly, we had booked but were told at the door rudely that they hadn’t seen the booking. We were shown to a table and it took a long time to order. It took almost an hour for the main to come after we had finished our starter.... More

This restaurant is not posh or modern, but it has the "casual" look, almost like French bistro, serving very tasteful Italian pasta and pizzas. Wine glasses are generous, service is very friendly and helpful, in a good mood. Very good for a casual dinner. Nothing less, nothing more.

Description
This hip pizza joint, located in the heart of Shoreditch near Old Street Station, is set in a converted fire station on Tabernacle Road, complete with original tiles, outdoor seating and a unique warehouse vibe. With maroon awnings out the front and a trendy bar in the basement, Yard is always crammed with media types at lunch time, and a stylish after-work crowd that picks up on Friday nights. Famous for its square yard-length pizzas which can be ordered with up to four different toppings, the restaurant has a cult Shoreditch following and locals love the salads as well as the shredded duck pizza with Hoi Sin sauce and cucumbers, and the rocket and Parma ham pizza.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
