Seated outside of marquee in the rain despite there being plenty empty tables underneath it before and during our stay. Requested to be moved but this was denied. The food was fantastic and drinks were generally good, but unfortunately we had to refund three cocktails at the end of the night as they were completely incorrect and bizarrely filled with lemon slices.

Really great, expensive drinks but I understand why! Had a great time, but it was annoying at the end when they asked us to leave even though there were so many seats available. Asked if we could have another table and they said yes to the table next to us but no to us! Still had a nice time though & the food was amazing :)

We didn’t get off to the best start at this venue, the door man was taking a little power trip and all together just had an attitude. But once inside and seated the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. It was easy enough to order stuff to the table. Toilets were a bit of a trek.

Booking was 3 hours and got told to leave after 2, told walk in staff they had to wait 20 minutes for a table yet we got told to leave after 2 hours, shocking after this especially after being told we had a table longer. Beyond a joke

Booked a table for 6 and was handed a tiny table that could hardly fit 4 of us with no umbrella out in the rain. We asked to change to a table with an umbrella when there were many available where we were told it was fully booked however the full time we were there, there was many tables free

The service was extremely slow. I appreciate your staff were very busy as it was a friday night. However we arrived at 5pm and did not get a drink until 5:40. This is not the servers fault, but perhaps you could benefit from a few more staff on the weekends?

On the booking confirmation it says you have a slot of 3 hours but we got told to leave after 2 hours 15 mins, if people are not aloud to stay the full time don’t advertise it as that.

The place is set up very well, all very safe and hygienic, service was great from the staff. However I had the impression that there was going to be several food vendors with a variety of options, in reality there was just two and the choice was pretty limited. Decided on pizza that was fairly average. Drinks selection is good though.

Was too noisey- I think the security staff should have been asking people not to shout as this increases droplet transmission.
Also, a couple of the security staff weren’t wearing masks which is not acceptable.

Really cool setting with a chill atmosphere. Food was delicious but my only criticism is that is wasn’t overly hot.

The covid procedures in place were organised and efficient!

1st time I’ve managed to get a table, and it was well worth the wait. The staff were amazing, we were able to move inside to a table that was free. The staff were very accommodating. Drinks were brilliant. Definitely be back soon. 10/10 across the board

Great system and space for covid. Got a bit cold so heaters would have been the ideal.
Only magners as cider choice at £4.3 for a pint which wasn't great, switched to wine which the app stopped letting us order around 10.30pm though a bar man said they had at the bar so app must have glitched.
I did not eat food but friends got gaga chicken which they liked a lot with a buttermilk type batter.
We will go back to try more food. Red wine by the glass comes in small 187ml bottles so is much better value than a big bottle and is very tasty.

Really seamless experience with safety measures in place. They could’ve added music to enhance the atmosphere a bit as it was otherwise quite quiet! Service was excellent although food was a bit on the pricey side based on the portion and quality. Would go again for sure.

Galvanizers Yard was a well laid out open area safe for food and drink, I could happily sit with my bubble and enjoy my time there, drinks are a little bit pricey but overall a good environment.

Food from Shawarma was really good, however the ga ga chicken tasted overwhelmingly of shrimp paste/fish sauce. Couldn’t eat it. Salt and Chilli chips were just frozen French fries with a couple of slices of chilli sprinkled on top and then charged £4 for it.

Food was fab. Drinks good value - especially the pitchers. Sadly, the waiter told us just after we had received our food that the venue was closing early (we had a total of 1.5 hours at our table) so we felt fairly rushed to finish our food. He gave the reason that the weather was about to turn bad - every guest could have been fitted under the marquee (ours was the only table not under there) in that case, and the weather remained fine for the evening. We thought they closed early because it was quiet, not because of the weather. But we were leaving half eaten food on our table, in order to get out on time. Quite disappointing.

Cold, damp evening but great to catch up with friends.
Food was good (we had a bit of everything) and service very prompt.
There were a few numpties at neighbouring tables but that was just a minor distraction...

A great night out, food was great value for money, delicious and generous portions for the price. Drinks all delivered to your table, good distance between tables, enough space in COVID times to feel safe, enough people around to create atmosphere. Would def recommend and we will be back!!

We were there at midday on a Sunday so very quiet but really impressed with the set up, food and service. Would definitely go again - if I can get booked in!
