The Old School Yard is a bar that recognises the working Londoner's yearning for simpler times. They've turned the clock back, or more accurately, have set it to stay at 3.10pm constantly, so that the bar is suspended in a state of perpetual childhood elation created by the bell that rings for home time. It calls itself a bar and playground, and this sums up the perfect balance between the childlike innocence of the nintendo games and the adult love of cold hard liquor that you can find here. It's like you've just been released from math class and instead of a glass of milk and homework waiting for you, there's cocktails and karaoke.
The cocktails are made by bartenders that you could learn a thing or two from; their skills are top-of-the-class, with bottles being thrown about behind the bar like a fast game of rounders. The menu itself is pretty fabulous; like a secret cartoon book scrawled in by a mischevious older sibling. Watch out for the Lynchberg Float in the biology section. It comes with a wise warning though; it might leave you addicted and craving more. The food at The Old School Yard is also a massive blast from the past with its tasty pizzas, burgers and party platters; perfect for hungry stomachs after a difficult PE lesson or a hard day at the office. So pack up your pencil case, grab your backpack and remember the good old days at this brilliant retro bar.
