Cocktails a must! Most delicious food cooked with passion and skill.The best sticky toffee pud EVER. Impeccable service and great atmosphere. "He" Sam and "she" Sam deserve success. Thanks for a great evening.

Sam says hi, and I think he enjoyed the afternoon as much as you, although I think you may have the edge after a pitcher of Lynchburg lemonade. Thank you for taking the time to write a great review, see you next time.

No.3 The Yard sits in a quiet courtyard just off Ironmonger Street in the centre of Stamford's magnificent town centre. Under the ownership of Simon McEnery and Chef Tim Luff, the restaurant offers lunchtime and evening services Tuesday through to Saturday and now a Sunday lunchtime service too. Choose from our set menus or a la carte option and dine in our lovely conservatory, first floor dining rooms or weather permitting, our secluded courtyard.
