Just to note that we like The Yard. We're not sure about the heaters, and we don't like the fact that they've started playing the music far too loud. Oh, and the toilets are in a silly place (and the inner and outer doors can't be opened properly together in the Gents, you sort of have to sidle round them), and there's no real beer upstairs, and the elderly brunette behind the bar is well grumpy... But we like the place. Relaxing, mix of ages, generally good beer (downstairs anyway). You can find us in there at least once a week. Yes, I've fallen off the wagon. *crash*.
