If you are looking for a truly unique and remarkable food experience- The Yard is the restaurant. A series of Nordic ingredients with different tastes and textures comes together in an explosion of flavours which ends up in fastidious fireworks. Congratulations to Niklas and his team. London is in for a treat!

A very special place. I went for lunch there and had the incredible set menu. the food was exemplary- starting with a gorgeous ceviche and followed by bavette of beef. My friends enjoyed venison and pasta. The stand-out though was the wonderful service. Our host was Melanie who was very kind, thoughtful and informed. I felt very well taken care and look forward to going back. Thank you the yard for making this a really fabulous lunch.

We had a really fantastic meal at The Yard. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was impeccable and all food and wine advice was spot on. This is definitely a place to go for a special occasion, I cannot fault it.

Exceptional food and service in a stylish and relaxed setting. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and explained each dish down to the sauce served with the ceviche and the topping of the hunters pie served alongside the fallow deer - all of the dishes were delicious! The sommelier paired some lovely wines with our meals and also took the time to explain each wine individually and the reason for the pairing. The food, wine and the service made it a very enjoyable experience all round and I will definitely be returning.

Best meal I've had all year. Restaurant is stunning. Food was amazing, in particular the beef tartare, duck liver parfait and the creme brulee. Brand new opening so there are a few tweaks needed with the service but I would be surprised if Mr Gill doesn't get a Michelin star for this one and it would be well deserved. We will be back.
