The Saint Johns Yard is a pub & kitchen as proclaimed on it's website.

Very busy at 5.30pm on a Saturday evening when we arrived. 3 ales on the hand pumps I opt for a pint of Greene King’s East Coast IPA @ 4.0%. A decent pint that is poured well by the energetic barmaid.

Lovely old pub inside with little rooms off to the side of the bar and secluded seating areas.

To the front on the main is outside seating but the real gem for this place is the large garden to the rear. There’s another bar out here that wasn’t open on this visit.

There’s a separate function room in an annexe in the garden and this was hosting a kids birthday party so the adults had spilled into the garden, enjoying their food and drinks in the sun.

A decent pub that from the outside I wouldn’t have ventured into as it looked a bit too much like a trendy bar to me but it was worth the stop.

Great place for food, lunch & dinner menu's are excellent value, Good range of lagers but could do with more bitters, although the Harveys there is one of the best pints in T.wells. Great atmosphere, attentive staff and top nosh.

weird location weird bar...uncomfortable and unfriendly. Has changed hands about a million times and they still don't get it right.

Smart, clean, good beer and wide selection of other drinks. Nice place for a couple of drinks, but not an all day/night drinking venue. That said the emphasis is on food and the restaurant, so perhaps that's no bad thing. Recommended.
