Barnyard's door is now open

The Barnyard, the new venture from Ollie Dabbous, has now opened in Fitzrovia, in collaboration with mixologist Oskar Kinberg.

Dabbous’ arrival on the scene, with his eponymous Fitzrovia restaurant in 2012, was hailed by the Evening Standard's Fay Maschler as a 'game changer'. Almost overnight a wave of hype ensued, and Dabbous became harder to get into than Fort Knox, with the number of months diners needed to book ahead becoming the stuff of urban legend.

Will Barnyard receive the same acclaim? Kinberg describes the menu as fun and upbeat. “It's home-cooking, done well and without all the washing up,”, he says. That’s certainly how the menu reads: homemade sausage rolls with piccalilli; roast beef on toast with warm horseradish buttermilk; apple and cloudberry crumble with clotted cream; and bananas and custard.

The drinks menu is a key part of the Barnyard stable with tipples including Hedgerow Shandy (sloe gin, cider, pink grapefruit and tonic), boilermakers, homemade lemonade and milkshakes.

As the name suggests there’s a nod towards the agricultural and the interior apparently has a 'distressed farm inspired rusticity'. Back to the ’60s then?

No reservations. Barnyard, in Charlotte Street W1, is open noon - midnight daily (but closing 4pm on Sundays). Certainly sounds pretty handy.
