Yardbird is situated within one of Belfast’s oldest buildings above The Dirty Onion Public House in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter on Hill Street, Belfast.

This site was originally constructed around the 1750’s as a warehouse and first used as a spirits bonded warehouse in 1921. The bond, known as STACK “N” (The N refers to North, as in the north side of Waring Street, number 42) and was operated by Edward Dillon Bonders until the company moved to larger premises in 1991. Stack “N” was used to store Jameson in barrels and crates, and during this period tens of thousands of bottles of Jameson passed through these doors.

Yardbird, a free-range rotisserie chicken restaurant, is a firm local favourite in its own right as well as a being a perfect complement to the cosy bar downstairs. The simple, stripped back and uncomplicated menu is prepared and delivered to the highest standards and served in a unique style with a matching environment.  The food offering is straight to the point, rotisserie chicken and sides, cooked to perfection and full of flavour.

Although the restaurant is situated above The Dirty Onion public house, the restaurant offers a family friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome, just so long as you love chicken!
