Buried away in the hinterland of warehouses that lie between Hackney proper and the Olympic Park, Hackney Wick's The Yard is a real diamond in the rough.

It also sports a cracking bar-kitchen, with a range of drinks that veer from tinnies of beer to swish cocktails, while the food works on a rotating pop up basis, with different chefs tailoring different menus to different shows.
