Although I preferred this place when it was the Smiles Brewery Tap, it is still a comfortable bar/café with a decent beer selection. We had burger & chips which was nicely presented (delicious chips), the burger slightly let down by a stale bun.

My wife and I frequent The Yard on a regular basis, for both the incredible selection of beer and the good food. They now have a new head chef whose cooking is amazing! Great tapas-style sharers that go nicely when washed down with a bottle or two!

Great beer, brilliant food, lovely service and a vibrant atmosphere. The only downside really is that the location is a long way from us, but we still make the trek!

A 35 minute wait for our bread and olive starters in which time the couple that ordered the same time as me had been served and finished their main.

Fish and Chips for main, small piece of fish, nice white, nice batter, but lacking any real flavor, mushy peas and tartar sauce, just bland..

Partner had the veggie burger, which again from her description, just lacking any real flavor.

Advertisement, in the toilets stating they are looking for a new head chef, I agree!

Colston is a pub enriched of doctors,researchers and Bristol Royal Infirmary/ Children Hospital staff at the end of the work shift. It's always busy. Good beer as well good pub food. It's quite big. They organise Christmas Parties. The staff is friendly and young. Go for it!
