We had a lovely time. We had an excellent waitress, it was her first day serving as she usually works behind the bar but she was very friendly and professional, we couldn’t tell it was her first time at all! The price was surprisingly low for the quality of the meals we were served.
Came for dinner at 8pm, got our table straightaway. Service was great and food was amazing. The outdoor area was nice and sheltered and there was a good buzz around the place.
Understaffed on a Friday evening. Waited 1 hour for the starters. The steak had more fat on it then meat, very poor for the price. Bad management overall as the staff were run off their feet. Even getting the bill at the end of the night took 20 mins to come to us. Not a great experience for the money that was spent.
Food was OUTSTANDING.. Exactly what I was looking for my birthday, I recommend and will book again.
The only issue was the service, being outdoors, staff should be more outside to see what customers want, and drinks took v long.. And the kitchen closed and no one said anything so when I was about to order more I couldn't.
Amazing food and really good service, 100% will be returning and recommending to friends
Starters were ok, mains were beyond bad, steaks were possibly the worst ever, service was excellent, outside space isn’t suitable for eating, staff great, steaks so so bad
Good outdoor area with plenty of space to social distance. Food and drinks were pretty good, unfortunately you’re kept waiting if you want to order more drinks / dessert. Staff not the most attentive, they are lovely though and very friendly
The food was lovely however we kept having to go into the bar to get any drink / food service.
Lovely place to eat. We were outdoor dining, and the ambience was lovely. Food was quite nice, lovely cocktail men great choice. Staff were friendly and attentive
Food was nice but completely let down by the absolutely dreadful service. We waited 40 minutes for 2 drinks which we ordered when we arrived but came after our food. Any time we requested anything from the waitress it took extremely long even though there was a number of waitresses working and there wasn’t many people there. At no time did we receive any apology for the slow service. Avoid.
Really lovely environment, good service, amazing food
Staff very friendly and accommodating. Very good service. Food was lovely and also did not take long. Will definitely be back.
I think other recent reviews on here are very accurate. Service was disorganised but the staff were trying. Food was grand
Wasn’t great, very poor service. Would not return
Good pub food, we had steak and Caesar salad with chip asked for extra sauce for salad which was brought out promptly, no hassle , friendly efficient staff
Had a super night with group of friends, service and staff were outstanding, thank you so much and we will be back 🤩
Food was good. Nothing exceptional but Perfectly fine. Service was good.
Great food and service... Lovely Hotel, highly recommended!
Lovely food and service was prompt. Would definitely return.
Nice wait staff but extremely slow service given how few people were there.
We visiting the Yard 2days ago with our children. The outdoor dining area is very small and close to a busy main road so a lot of noise. There was only 1 girl serving all tables and although polite the service was slow. We had all finished our food by the time my daughter got her gravy. The food itself was very basic. I had wings which where suppose to be in sauce but where Infact bbq and the smallest wings ever. The loaded fries were cold and very greasy. The curry and burger were very basic. I was very disappointed in the whole experience and feel it was not value for money.
Food and cocktails were delicious. Staff were lovely.
Thank you for your 5 star rating. Regards Maura (GM)
The mushroom bruschetta is delicious. Overall the dinner was excellent.
Service was extremely slow waited almost 30 minutes before receiving our drinks
Lovely experience, great service, they gave us blankets to ward off the cold
Service was great, but for some reason 5 dishes were out of stock and not available. This left choice very limited . Strange for a lunch time sitting
The service was poor , food was good though .
The food was very nice 10/10 however we were seated outside due to Covid restrictions & it rained heavily on us during the meal. The Umbrellas & Covers they seated us under weren’t water proof so it drizzled on us the whole meal. Would have been nice if the weather was good so can’t complain too much. Also people are smoking right beside the outdoor seating area which can be a turn in off.
Amazing food, drinks and environment! Bruno and the others provided us such a great service since the beginning for my friends birthday. We are definitely coming back when visiting Galway again! Thank you so much, it was really great.
I ordered the rare stake and it was incredible!
The steak was awful, but the rest of the meal was lovely
My first and last time visiting. When we first arrived, we stood beside the wait to be seated sign and the staff just ignored us and walked by. The outside area is beside a bend with constant cars and loud noise. The waitress didn’t seem to want to be there. We had to remind her a few times of things she had forgotten. There was food missing from my breakfast and was not worth the price. The breakfasts were both cold also. The meat on my partner’s breakfast was dry and tough. All over terrible experience.
Very nice staff and lovely food!
Dear Clare, Thank you for your lovely review, delighted to read that you enjoyed our food and the staff. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Regards Maura (General Manager)
I went for lovely dinner with my best friend . We ordered turkey and ham was delicious 🤤 . Staff very friendly .
Thank you So much for made this evening special☺️✨🎄Beautyful Xmas decorations👌👌👌
Very spacious and airy, the food was good. Of note was the Calamari - starter very generous and perfectly cooked. Service friendly and professional. Ideal for a quiet leisurely lunch treat.
Lovely food, polite staff. Only down on ambience because of covid. Very clean also.
Food was delicious but the staff service was fantastic, made the evening!
We were told only after ordering that we had to spend €20 before alcohol could be purchased. This was reduced after we complained this was reduced to €9.50 as per government regulations (which should be €9 but we didn’t complain). Atmosphere was non existent as we were the only people there. Service was decent but food was bland and extremely overpriced. €18 for fish and chips and there were about 10 chips. Will never go back
Enjoyed my stay at the house hotel. Evening meal at The Yard Kitchen was outstanding. Service was very efficient and staff members Luke and Tom were friendly and made us feel welcome. I highly recommend the ice cream sandwich for dessert.
Had an amazing trip to galway and this restaurant was so lovely to sit down and to just enjoy a meal, waiting staff where amazing and we weren’t long waiting on service everything was perfect.
Had a fabulous afternoon tea here with my friend. Food was lovely, staff were really friendly, excellent quality for money. We had loads to eat.
