With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of casual cuisine and drinks at The Yardhouse, which boasts two locations—in Kensington and along 17th Avenue.

The Yardhouse is a local hangout presenting a menu equipped with casual, contemporary fare. Sedate hyper hunger with the appetizer quesadilla ($12.25), wherein an inviting fresh tortilla hosts a meet-and-greet between chunks of chicken breast, mild cilantro pesto, robust roasted peppers, black beans, and spicy jalapeños, all socially lubricated with a side of salsa fresca. Sandwich surveyors may inspect the steak sandwich ($16), an anvil of Angus top sirloin coddled by ciabatta bread, and burrito barons can capitalize on the Yardhouse burrito ($12.50), a mishmash of sambal oelek spiced chicken breast, basmati rice, and creamy cheddar cheese stuffed, like a tasty teddy bear, to capacity and waiting to burst through a baked tortilla. Entrees include a piquant coconut red-curry rice bowl ($14.50), sticky spicy ribs ($14), and a refreshing Mediterranean pasta ($15).

The 17th Avenue location features an open patio in front of the bustling street, rich décor, and enticingly comfortable seating, whereas the Kensington location boasts an inviting garden patio and breezy front windows that open up to Kensington Road, ideal for pedestrian-pestering competitions. Each outpost offers a relaxed atmosphere suitable for grabbing a cocktail with friends or watching your favourite sports on contemporary viewing devices. On Thursdays, the location on 17th has live music to drown out the sound of your robot date overheating.

This deal is not valid with other offers, including The Yardhouse's daily specials.


Fast Forward Weekly reviewed The Yardhouse, and seven Yelpers give the Kensington location a three-star average. Sixty-five per cent of Urbanspooners like it:

  • Sports playing on TVs, decent pub fare and the signature yards of beer - half-yard glasses of draught served in wooden carafes. – Fast Forward Weekly
  • Fantastic place for lunch or dinner with friends. Terrific food. Excellent service and a really fun vibe. – Brad Ingarfield, Urbanspoon

The Yardhouse

The Yardhouse's dishes have been around the world and back. The menu's range of dishes speaks to the kitchen's penchant for international recipes and punched-up pub cuisine. This global appreciation hasn't uprooted barroom tradition, however—classic chicken wings often steal the menu spotlight, especially on Wednesday, when they are prepared in batches of 100 per order.

Apart from worldliness, The Yardhouse stresses on-site prep, showcasing truffle fries and housemade thai chicken bites. Despite elaborate recipes for pumpkin basil gnocchi and maple dip for yam fries, the dining-room atmosphere is a far cry from the stifled silence and mandatory caviar chugging of gourmet halls. Chatter overlaps with sports broadcasts, the tinkling of cocktail glasses, and the sound of draft beers being poured into pint-sized servings—or, for especially thirsty patrons, the bar's signature yard-long flasks. Bottled craft beers round out the drink list with ciders, ales, lagers, and stouts.

the food was good, but the order took a while. go on a night where you are not in a rush and it will be fine!

Great service staff, so friendly and went out of their way to make our visit a pleasure! We enjoyed a selection of appetizers this time around instead of main courses and, as usual, the beer was very cold and delicious!
