Time Out Says
Now, we love those places, but every now and then we want something a bit more casual, where we don’t need to worry about our outfits and can just rock up whenever we want.
And if that bar also has a games console where we can pit our skills against our pals, then all the better.
The Backyard does all of that, and is a very pleasant place to spend a relaxing hour or two with your mates. Eats come from a food truck and are good value. Daily specials tend to be Asian-style dishes, while the main menu includes burgers, light bites and some more healthy vegetarian dishes.
We love the calamari, which comes in a huge portion and is enough to share. The spiced batter makes a change, too. The fish burger comes with good fries, though we’d like a bit more seasoning in the batter.
But this is somewhere we can see ourselves spending a good few afternoons.
The Bottom Line
Casual, fun and good value.
