The Yard of Ale Pop-Up Pub

At the Open Days in February 2020, a pub was one of the things many people asked to see at St Francis Fields.


While it’s unlikely ever to be possible to have a full-time pub on the site, we have been running a very popular pop-up pub called The Yard of Ale since 2021. It opens outdoors on several weekends every summer at the courtyard Hub on the site, and in the winter The Yard of Ale opens in the village hall.

The weekends we are open this year are:

3rd – 6th          May               
24th – 27th     May               
7th  - 9th         June             
28th  - 30th    June               
19th  - 21st      July                 
23rd  - 26th    August            

And these are the opening times:

Fridays                        16:00 – 21:00

Saturdays                   14:00 – 21:00

Sundays                      14:00 – 20:00

Monday, bank hols  14:00 – 20:00

By all accounts, it’s been a huge success! It is managed and run by volunteers from St Francis Fields Community Interest Company, makes a modest profit and, just as importantly, lots of people have told us how lovely it is to be able to have the opportunity to chat to friends and neighbours over a pint (local beer and cider, of course) or a glass of wine in the centre of the village.
