Best experience of dining my partner and I have had.
After going through the pandemic, the fact it had an open kitchen and the chef introduced himself, front of house and ran through the menu allowed us as diners to feel connected, involved and educated about what we were eating and where the produce came from.
All diners were served by friendly, attentive waiters and in one sitting which again reiterated the togetherness and heightened the experience. Furthermore, you had no say in the menu which was exciting, adventurous and cuts down on food waste and unnecessary costs which in my opinion is a great thing. You also have no hassle of flipping tables, feeling rushed or unease.
A truly wonderful experience, working with the seasons and perfect for a special occasion. We will be returning again soon! Thank you.

Just sublime food, a set taster menu, a beautiful selection, wine matched and chosen for each course. The setting is wonderful, we will be returning every month. Well done to all the staff for a truly special evening.

All in all a wonderful experience, a beautiful place and good ideas, especially the deserts. Butternut soup with Ricotta was perfekt. For the mains I‘d prefer the stress on sides/vegetables, so less duck but more beetroots for example. Good Choice on the wine List. Bread should‘nt run out if you ask for.
Our sitting bench was quiet uncomfortable.

Fantastic food, wonderful building and ambience. Great efforts to be sustainable, no waste, local organic food. Tastes and flavours incredible. I absolutely love this place. Felt so special. I'm in Cornwall recovering from cancer and other trauma and this was a step out of normal life into luxury, but not at the cost of the environment.

As people who have been eating out all over the world for 44 years of marriage, this is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences to date! Philosophy is exciting and challenging, and the fact that someone explains it to the invite to guess adds to the experience. Each dish was explained carefully by the waiters, and much thought had gone into wine choices for example. The dishes were beautifully presented and hadAmazing flavors with delicacy and ingenuity.

The whole thing was unhurried because everyone arrives at 6:30 and leaves at the end of the seven course meal.

It will be hard to match this quality of experience again.

Was a great experience and wonderful food. My partner is lactose intolerant and the chef came to her before the meal and asked her exact needs. They really catered to her without any complaints and her food was very much like mine you wouldn't know hers was dairy free so she didn't feel like she wasn't getting the same experience. They catered to our needs and when asked for a bottle for when we came due to celebrating our engagement and my partner's birthday they left a bottle there and popped open when we arrived and also a lovely thoughtful card. Service was amazing and always friendly when ringing up. Absolutely amazing can't wait to go back!!

We had a lovely meal as always and am fully supportive of the restaurant's aim to be sustainable. Really imaginative dishes and fascinating flavours and very good service all in a beautiful and very atmospheric surroundings.

I have three suggestions for improvement - one is to offer more robust vegetarian options. For those of us choosing not to eat meat for environmental reasons, it would be good to feel more supported by the restaurant and to be offered vegetarian options that are not just a vegetable replacement for the meat dishes. Also provide more bread to soak up the lovely sauces and finally to change the menu a bit more so for those of us wanting to come back it is more enticing!

But a great meal and I thoroughly recommend it.

This place is so super special! We came for my boyfriend’s 40th bday with another couple, and they even had a birthday card for him on the table when we arrived… so thoughtful. A few of us had dietary restrictions which they catered to beautifully even with the set menu. The food was exceptional and the ambiance was just perfect. Intimate but professional service. Beautiful space, and magical driving onto the estate and happening upon the restaurant at the end of the road. Highly recommend it for a special occasion!

A most enjoyable evening in a lovely and rather special setting.. Imaginative (no choice) menu using wide range of locally grown and sourced ingredients. Very good cooking matched by informal, personable and efficient service. Look forward to a return visit next year.

A wonderful, thoughtful, ethical and sustainable menu. A superb setting that we will definitely be returning to.
Unfortunately, through no fault of the venue, we were seated next to awfully loud customers, whos topics of conversation were not suited to the ambience of the evening, so that somewhat tainted out experience. However, like I said, it's not through the fault of the restaurant, so we look forward to a better atmosphere next time

Simply beautiful evening experiencing the New Yard. I had been looking forward to this evening as a highlight to my holiday and was left most definitely wanting to return.
Exquisite food, beautifully presented, wonderful ambience. Attentiveness re service was second to none. Yet all was beautifully understated and the clear passion and dedication to sustainability impressive.
The wine pairings excellent yet no pressure to follow these at all. An evening I would love to repeat.

An excellent meal all round. A seven course tasting menu, focussed on local, sustainable produce, introduced by the chef / co-owner himself. The food itself was extraordinary with good value wine, great service, and all in a beautiful location. We were lucky enough to have a table with a view of the kitchen. Only minor issue was the volume of the music - bit hard to chat but might reflect my ageing hearing! A worthy winner of a Michelin Green Star.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to New Yard and liked the sustainability and zero waste ethos. The chef/owner did a short talk on the ethos and the menu and that really set the tone for the evening. Every course was delicious and a lot of care had gone in the preparation. Lovely atmosphere and pleasantly attentive service made it a really enjoyable evening. Have to say not cheap but definitely worth it.
