Pride Park Stadium

The Yard Opens its Doors

A new all-day restaurant and bar is set for its official opening at Bondholder Pride Park Stadium

The name of the restaurant is inspired by the railway goods yards which originally stood on the very same spot as where The Yard is based.

John Vicars, Bondholder Derby County's Chief Operating Officer, said: “We’re really excited about this project. The Yard will be a top-quality place to both eat and drink - and not just on match days.

“It will be open every day, from 10.30am right through to 11pm, serving brunch, lunch and dinner.

“Personally, I have wanted to see something like The Yard open at the stadium for the last decade.

“Apart from the odd exception, there is a still a lack of high-quality places to dine and go for a drink on Pride Park. Up to 10,000 people work on the business park alone - but there is still a distinct lack of choice.

“The Yard will fill a gap in the market - not just on match days but all year round."

As well as being open for business throughout the week, The Yard will also be open on matchdays for supporters to enjoy their pre-match food and drinks.

Salloway put Network Rail on Track

Bondholder Salloway Property Consultants has leased one of Derby’s most prominent industrial warehouses at Millennium Way, Pride Park, to the owner and operator of the nation’s railway infrastructure, Network Rail. 

The 30,000 sq.ft unit, which is located opposite Bondholder Derby County’s Pride Park Stadium, has been let after a successful marketing campaign.

The deal was put together by Chris Keogh, Associate at Salloway.

Chris said: “To have landed a covenant of the caliber of Network Rail is obviously a welcome result. There is an acute shortage of good quality warehouse space on the market and I am sure Network Rail will be delighted not only to have found the right building solution but crucially, one that is within short proximity of their existing facilities in Derby.”

“There is no doubt in my mind that this underlines Derby’s importance to the national rail network.”

The sublease was signed shortly before the Christmas break and Network Rail have now taken occupation and the deal will initially see Network Rail occupy the warehouse for potentially 4 years.
