Live Music

The Yard has live music on every Friday and Saturday night from 9.30 and most evenings before bank holidays from 9pm. Our live events are all listed on the ESP's What's On Guide, available here or you can follow us on Twitter @TheYardOfAlePub to find out which bands we have coming up.


We show all popular live sporting events aired on terrestrial, Sky and BTSport as we have 3 separate sky boxes and enough separate areas to put sound on each event. At really busy times, if there was football, rugby, cricket and tennis on at the same time, we will do everything within our control to keep everyone happy but if you want to check if we will be showing a particular non-mainstream event, please feel free to call us on 01733 348000.

Ensuite guest rooms are currently being renovated upstairs in the Yard of Ale and should be available to reserve for overnight stays later in the year. Until then, rooms at Clarks Guest House, just across the road from the pub are available to book. Please visit www.clarksguesthouse.co.uk for prices and more details.


Our aim is quality rather than quantity. With local support, there is the initial capacity to offer up to 6 different ales with a minimum of 4 at any given time. However, more important than how many is how good! We will always try to offer a broad selection with at least two beer festivals a year. Customer opinions are always welcome and whilst we cannot guarantee to stock everyone's favourite tipple, we can promise that we will dedicate one of our pumps to never dispense the same beer twice! We have the pleasure of being in the centre of one of the finest areas.

We have the pleasure of being in one of the finest Ale drinking areas in the region with enough quality Ale houses within pub crawling distance to satisfy even the most hardened drinkers!

Function Room

Also above the pub is a function room, currently undergoing a major renovation. This room will comfortably hold up to 60 people (approx 60 square meters) and is available for hire with or without a bar for events, parties, band practises and any other special occasions from October. Either call us on 01733 348000 or email us at enquiries@theyardofalepub.co.uk for availability and prices.
