Yardarm is a family-run neighbourhood deli/café/bar with a restaurant next-door: contemporary, relaxed and chic wth scrummy modern British cuisine at a reasonable price point. They have a lot of rave reviews for their ‘small bites’ and ‘sumptuous looking produce’ as well as having excellent coffee and being a great place to work.
You can hear the enjoyment and pride when they tell you that they stock their “favourite things to eat and drink” all under one roof in the deli-café-bar. Next door, the restaurant offers table service in a stylish, minimal environment, with leather banquet seating, dark metalwork and cool concrete walls softened by lovely plants. More importantly for a family run business that prides itself on its neighbourliness, there is always a friendly welcome.
There are three seating areas to choose from – including a sweet little courtyard for our precious sunny days – and you’re likely to bump into an actual neighbour or strike up a chat with someone new. It’s a popular place and it’s best to make a reservation for the restaurant evening service.
