Not a month goes by these days when we don’t have a new foodie hang-out to shout about and this is no exception. Opening at the tail end of 2016, the Punt Yard sits in the spot which used to be home to the much-loved Teri-Aki – with sushi and noodles making way for craft ales and pizza.
Inside, as we’ve come to expect from City Pub group (who also run the Brew House and Old Bicycle Shop), it’s hipster heaven, with retro furniture, exposed brickwork, cassette tapes as decoration and even the odd Rubik’s cube.
There’s a nice drinks selection, whether you fancy a quirky cocktail, a can of craft beer or a glass of fizz – which is literally on tap at the bar.
Food-wise, there’s nibbly bits like sausage roll loaf with brown sauce and smashed avo on flatbread, plus posh kebabs and pimped up superfood salads.
The sourdough pizzas are the main pull though, with a huge range of topping options – we like the look of the All about Albert, which features rocket and walnut pesto, goats cheese, Hartington stilton, pickled pear and truffle oil. Domino’s it ain’t.
Open Monday to Sunday, midday to midnight.
