Graham Coombs left this review about The Old Yard Tapas Bar

Despite the tapas bar name and odd bits of Spanish decoration this isn't a bad pub. It has two separate side with their own bars but only one was in use at time of visit. There is a large outdoor area on the pavement. A good range of beers included Pennine North 2 South, St Austell Proper Job, Graphite Black IPA, Ringwood 49er and John Smiths Cask, plus a few fizzy craft.

Not sure why this is called a Tapas Bar. It has two rooms and two bars and was very busy and very good. Ringwood 49er on Hand Pump. Would revisit.

Aqualung . left this review about The Old Yard Tapas Bar

I was in two minds whether to include this place on my Darlington visit but was glad I did as the reality is that it hardly any different to any other shop conversion pub that does food. It's a long narrow room with beams and a tiled floor. There are tall tables and a rather obtrusive TV screen at the front with the bar in the middle and the rear area set out for food.
The bar had six hand pumps which had three Theakston beers, John Smith's bitter, Schoolhouse Abacus and Rudgate Bicycale. I went for the Abacus which was a light beer in good nick at around the three quid mark.
I would normally find the idea of visitng a Tapas Bar something of a nightmare but quite enjoyed this visit although the beer choice isn't as good as other places in town.
