And if all that effort has kick-started an appetite, Tiger Yard’s resident traders (Terry’s Tacos, Fire & Flank, Meating Point and Dirty Bird) will be firing up the grills from noon, ready to offer an array of street food options, from smashed beef tacos to halloumi souvlaki, and crispy fried chicken with blue cheese sauce.The bar will also be open for anyone who wants to stay on and enjoy a drink in the summer sunshine.
