    After visiting the Pantry several times and eating dinner at NYR, we decided to try to Sunday lunch. A relaxed ambience, with friendly staff and a good drinks menu got us off to a great start. The non-alcoholic sodas were both delicious. The gazpacho was superb, with divine tomato sweetness and other well balanced flavours and textures. Crudites were as tasty as they were pretty and the cod roe was super fishy and packed a punch. The roast itself lived upto expectations with tasty, tender beef, a crispy Yorkshire pud stuffed with rich ragu of beef and vegetables full of flavour. Treacle tart with quince and Early Grey was the right degree of sweetness and had lovely crunchy notes too. Outstanding. My only request would be a glass of Cornish wine to further add to the commitment to local produce and sustainability.

    Had been wanting to go to the Pantry of New Yard for ages so was very disappointed with the service we received with food arriving far too quickly, not giving us time to savour our aperitifs. When ordering our food we were told it wouldn’t be enough and advised to order from the ‘snacks’ menu. I ordered the salami which came without bread and so asked for some. The waitress said I would have to pay for it. I agreed to the charge but when you’re paying £7.50 for some salami I think some bread would be expected. The ‘snacks’ arrived minutes after our aperitifs followed by the small plates we’d ordered. We paid £109 for lunch that barely lasted 30minutes, so rushed was the service. If you are attending that class of establishment the staff should respect the order of food. We have been to plenty of small plate restaurants and a good restaurant will serve them in the appropriate order, not all at once with the aperitifs. Reading the wonderful reviews I assume we caught them on a bad day.

    An exceptional location and experience that's fully immersive. Arrive ahead of your meal to check out the beautiful walled garden, seeing how each dish makes its way through to the kitchen and your plate. Staff were attentive, genuine, and engaging. The ambience perfect; the aesthetics charming. And each dish impeccable - thoughtful and delicious. The drinks list also faultless. Worth every penny - an investment to the future of how dining should be done.

    We ate at New Yard last night. The set 6 course tasting menu was delicious. Seasonal, local ingredients included veg from their walled garden and mushrooms foraged nearby. The menu changes dependent on available ingredients but we had excellent dishes right through from the sourdough and gazpacho to sea bass, lobster, chicken, the lightest rum baba and inspired cheese course. The wine flight was also excellent. All served by enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff who were a pleasure to speak to.

    Amazing as always. Thank you so much, all the staff were incredibly attentive and went out of their way to make the evening great. It’s never not impressive to dine at the New Yard, the food was incredible, the chicken dish was probably one of the best things that have ever entered my mouth, exploring the gardens seeing what you’re eating it’s such an insightful experience (don’t worry none of these pigs or chickens are harmed whilst creating the menu) could not recommend more.

    Have been a few times now but it was the first time for my friends and it will not be their last. The food is fresh vibrant and extremely tasty. It is so nice to go to somewhere that uses all local produce. We had one of each of the small plates and a courgette flower pizza and shared between the three of us. It was all presented beautifully as it was cooked fresh it was bought to the table. The staff were very knowledgeable of the food and were more than happy to help and guide. It is an intimate place to go to east very rustic and magical I can’t wait to go again very soon. Thank you one and all for a terrific experience once again 😃
