The Yard, Victoria Stakes
After a lovely Autumnal dog walk in Queens wood, the Husband and I fancied a quick Friday drink and decided on the Vicky Stakes. As we had a hyper toddler in tow, we opted for the newly refurbed ‘Yard’ out the back and settled in with a glass of something boozey and a chicken dish ordered for the boy.
We only stayed for an hour or so, but I loved it!! The space is surprisingly warm and cosy for an outside-ish area and I love the new decor.
I was also super lucky to meet Ben, the owner and Mumford-the-dogs Dad... I was totally blown away by how nice he is! Down to earth, very friendly, welcoming and keen to play a role in our local community.
He told us about potential plans for The Yard, including events, boxed food, Bloody Mary & Salt Beef Sunday’s and much more to come.
The Vicky Stakes is becoming our favourite pub and we will be making a point of coming back soon.
