About Us

The Yard is a family owned and run Modern Italian Restaurant in the centre of Chester.

It combines both style and substance, with food prepared by our head chef, who has previously worked for Gordon Ramsey. Our menus are prepared by our head chef, who has years of experience under his belt. We’ve got fine Italian cuisine with a tasty modern twist just waiting for you to enjoy.

Our popular cocktail lounge, The Boardroom, resides just below The Yard Chester. Premium spirits and unusual cocktails await in our laidback lounge - The Boardroom is a perfect place to start or end your night.
