Tucked away just off Brooke Street, The Yard is a buzzing bar serving a good selection of wines along with an extensive pub menu. Try their burgers, and if your lucky with the weather sit outside. The bar is tardice like, and is a privately run establishment. Look forward to returning Caot Medley Isle of Man

Came here to do the deal of £19.95 per person food and prosecco or carsberg for 90 mins. Best thing I've ever done! The food was amazing and the service was great! Will be back again! More

My son and I have just left The Yard where we had two delicious burgers, fries and slaw. The taste of the flavoursome burgers will remain with us for a long time. Would have loved to try dessert but was unfortunately was too full after the main course! The staff were really helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back.....soon!

We had a flat iron steak which was very good but the highlight of the visit was a cocktail masterclass with Liam. Very personable, very informative with hands on cocktail making and tasting. Delicious especially expresso Martini. We will be back.

We went as I won a bottle of prosecco on one of their Facebook competitions, this was our first visit and we were impressed, with the service from the male bar staff, the live music which was really good, not too loud and not in your face, generally we felt this place had a good atmosphere overall. We are back... More
