As many of you will know The Stove Yard are a major sponsor of Ards RFC in Newtownards – you'll also see our showroom staff proudly wearing their Ards hoodies, for example. Not content with our sponsorship money, they now want blood too. Last night Director Richard Poulter, thought he'd wander down to the Club and have a nice relaxing evening watching the boys practice – but they had other ideas.

You'll recognise Richard from a number of our videos.

Road-testing Traeger Grills at The Stove Yard this Saturday

It's one of the nice things about working at The Stove Yard – when the weather starts getting better we get to thinking about cooking outdoors and to start planning our famous demonstrations on the barbecues and grills we sell. We're all big fans of cooking outdoors so our regular Saturday morning demos are no real hardship for us and of course, along with our customers, we also get to tuck into whatever we've rustled up...

They're boiler stoves Jim, but not as we know them.

At The Stove Yard in the early days we built our business in Ireland on the back of sky rocketing oil prices and multi fuel central heating boiler stoves. With energy prices eventually settling down and with virtually everyone and his uncle having installed one, boiler stove sales eventually settled down. With the introduction of the tough Ecodesign emissions regulations at the end of this year it seemed to everyone that boiler stoves would come to the end of the road. But will they? Read more...
