Been coming to Appledore for over 30 years and this is the first ever time we been here (even when it used to be the old Coach & Horses). The staff are all Welcoming and friendly, the food is way out of this world, it so delicious. The food does come in small portions and is more of a sharing/tapas menu, but it’s fabulous! Practically all the food we tried I would recommend, especially loved the Pardon Peppers, Crispy Holsworthy Belly Pork, Yard Buddha Bowl, Thai Fish Cakes, Cajun Fries, and the King Scallops. As we were paying and getting ready to leave, we decided to book a table for next week again as we loved it to much! Also the tips go to charity! Thanks again, Team Yard👍

Good food, need to remember to add veggies to your order, if you order lamb chops £18, that’s all you get I ordered the salad and chips to make the meal. Flavours good, drink selection good, service okay. Parking at the main car park at the end of the quay. Dog friendly.

Genuinely one of the best spots in Appledore. The food is outrageously good and really caters amazingly for gluten free options. Wish we knew about it sooner !!!!

We were lucky to get a walk-in spot along with our two doggies. Such friendly, genuine service and the food and drinks were just incredibly good! We had the Moscow mule with spiced rum and the espresso martini with Baileys! Each tapas dish was so delicious and we left the restaurant feeling so satisfied! Hit the spot – I would have literally ordered every dish on the menu if I could have eaten that much as I loved their take on the different dishes.This is a must visit place!
