The Bernard Shaw pub is a centre of a whole conglomerate of food and drink places. While The Big Blue Bus (check my article!) is hidden in the courtyard, Eatyard is right there on display, providing a quick food option to passers-by with its outdoor food stalls and seating.
It opened in Autumn 2016, and has been a success ever since. Some food stalls stay the same, but quite a few rotate, so I try to drop by every few weeks to see what’s on order. Some of the stalls offer fairly standard options, albeit still good, such as chicken wings, burgers or Indian kebabs; some others are quite unusual: from Sicilian pasta balls to Colombian corn bread Arepas.
For me, the Eatyard is a cosy and welcoming place, ever popular throughout the year, even when you’d think the weather is a bit too harsh to eat outside. There’s always new stuff to try, and it can be good as a quick lunch option or a pre-drink snack.
