SquareMeal Review of The Yard

The website for this popular, split-level drinking den, located behind iron gates away from the main drag, features a bevy of beefcake, naked save for their pants. In truth, The Yard is less ageist & less about musclemen with attitude than most Soho gay bars – the mixed crowd even includes punters who are not as Young as Will. Draught & bottled beers are consumed in heroic quantities here, as the blokes mingle in the kitsch, all-weather courtyard (lit by twinkly fairy lights) & in the attic bar above (complete with slouchy sofas). Easy-drinking wines & a concise collection of girlie cocktails are also available. Give the place a bit of notice & they’ll even lay on canapés for a special party night – perhaps your 40th birthday.

This bar is the worst place Ihave ever been to in London… the staff are unhelpful and very rude and the man who calls himself the owner is permenantly drunk and is extremely rude to everyone… the drinks are watered down and I would rather go to the local soup kitchen for the homeless, I am sure it would be cleaner there… I would never recommend this dreadful place to anyone… it was a waste of my time and money!
