    Very small serving size of meals, left still hungry after spending almost $100 on food and drinks. Have to order via table QR code when there is no reception but the waitress couldn’t just take our order instead. A lot of other very good dinner options in town offer better value and experience which we have been to in the past. Won’t be back or recommend to others.
    The Yard BrightResponded on April 11, 2024
    Hi There. We are disappointed to see you have left us 2 stars. We always aim to keep our prices reasonable and in line with other operators in the area. The cost of all goods and services has risen for everyone in recent times so dining out does cost a little more than it used to. Our menu is designed consisting of smaller and larger dishes, so to be shared or for few dishes to be ordered to enjoy a little of everything. We are more than happy to take table orders if there are issues with guests using their phones, but this would lead to longer wait time -our apologies if this was misunderstood by our staff on the night. QR code ordering allows for faster service for our diners with limited staff. We hope you'll reconsider and dine with us again in the future. Thank you. The Yard Team.

    We enjoyed the food, corn, cauliflower, chicken & pork tacos plus the plentiful chips. Minor downside the insects hovering, told we should have asked for the aero guard, maybe it could have been offered.
    The Yard BrightResponded on April 11, 2024
    Hi Bev. Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meal with us, noting some of our dishes that we also really love! One of the drawbacks of having a semi outside venue is on occasion the insects - we do have insect repellent available for diners use, so we will ensure our team knows to offer this out to guests in future. We hope to host you again when next in Bright! The Yard Team.

    Menu confusing Really just tapas Zero service Tap order annoying
    The Yard BrightResponded on April 11, 2024
    Hi There. Thank you taking the time to leave us your review. We are disappointed to hear you found our menu confusing and that you dislike our QR Code ordering - QR code menus and ordering allows us to be more environmentally friendly by using less paper and allows for faster service for our diners with minimal staff - being regional and a seasonal venue can mean difficulty in securing great hospitality professionals. If you had of asked, we would have been more than happy to provide you table service, but would have meant a longer wait time. We appreciate you having rated our food 4 stars and hope that you'll return for another visit in the future. The Yard Crew,

    The Yard advertised taco special Wednesday nights on arrival no not doing tonight. Didn't stay, very misleading
    The Yard BrightResponded on February 15, 2024
    Hi Robert. This is extremely disheartening to see you leave us a 1-star review, both on Open Table & Google. Unfortunately, due to the power outage affecting Bright Tuesday & yesterday, our venue was impacted - we lost a significant amount of stock meaning we were unable to offer our usual Wednesday night special. Our team worked incredibly hard to allow us to even open with a very limited menu. All guests who had been booked in, including yourself, were contacted about this - we left you a voicemail as you did not answer the phone. Sorry that you missed the voicemail message. We would hope that you’d have been more understanding given the circumstances, like our other diners were on the night, but you chose to not stay. Thank you. The Yard Crew.
