Need a place with noise.. movements.. and networking... this is a rather unique mix of people for social and business activities... make your choice and let others make theirs a well.. and then mind your own business.. let the party rock... with hot DJs in town.

Backyard is a great place. Very nice owners and management. We played there with the Beathogs, and we and the audience fully enjoyed it. Hope there will be much more live music there. Wim

Nice casual ambience with good service and a limited but well crafted menu. Known for their grills. I tried their sirloin steak which was good, not great. Otherwise, the atmosphere is definitely recommended. A place to retain.

The owners and management have never got complacent with this bar,other restaurants and bars come and go but the effort they put in keeps everything to a very good level. Fine dining this isn't but it's great pub food with a choice of the usual drinks served by polite and attentive staff.
