Gin, Cocktails, Craft Beer, Wine and street food

From the people that brought you The Bishop's Cave, The Yard (formerly The Gin Cave) is our newly laid out cocktail cave, now with outside seating and rotating street food vendors. We have an exclusive cocktail menu that includes some classics and some interesting creations of our own, selection of small batch gins, interesting beers on tap, a curated wine list available by the bottle or by the glass. 

Note: this is not somewhere that just serves Gin and Tonic. All of our gins and spirits have been artfully paired with a variety of mixers, or simply served over ice for maximum effect. And if you don't like gin, that just means you haven't had the right one yet! Come and talk to us and we'll find the one for you.

Street Food 

Currently serving food from The Bishop's Cave including cheeseboards and antipasti, but we will have our guest vendors back in the summer.
