The Stockyard, a truckstop with a twist. Don't think greasy spoon and formica tables; think fresh, home cooked food and a warm friendly atmosphere, where everyone is welcome!
The Stockyard is a unique place full of rustic charm and traditional values, whether you fancy a quiet night and a chat or a fun filled music night provided by regular karaoke stars or our talented organist to sing along to.
The music starts on Tuesday and Wednesday, Darren Knights with karaoke from 9pm on both nights. Don't be late as it gets very busy but you don't wait to get served, we are always staffed up with our excellent bar team. The price of drink will astound you; we are noted for our fair prices.
On Thursday and Saturday, our resident organist Ian Dodds accompanies some of the very best singers around.
Our prime function is a truckstop, this is self evident with the vast truckpark with a capacity of over 200 trucks. Ladies and gents showers are maintained to a very high standard. We serve food every day (except bank holidays) – most days from 5am for early starters.
The Stockyard attracts people from all walks of life and age groups who enjoy the food, music and drinks or just to chat.
Harry's bar, named after our very dear friend Harry Bletcher who from my very first thoughts on a truckstop, Harry was always deeply involved. His endless talents show in every aspect of The Stockyard, with the utilisation of old bricks, windows, flags, beams and general junk. We have created a pub and restaurant entrance that looks 100 years old, but above all else, it has atmosphere.
