This place is amazing. Had fantastic service and could not believe the quality of the cocktails which were 2 4 1. This was the last day of trading before it closed for refurbishment. They even invited us back to show us what it would look like after they had spent all that money..

Went in for breakfast and was met with dirty tables although there seemed to be plenty of staff walking around who seemed to be busy doing nothing. I looked at least 5 other empty tables which were in the same condition. Is it too much to ask for the tables to be wiped down after the previous customers have left.... More

This place has tacky written all over it! The bar hygiene was not good and the gin was so bad we took out Our much anticipated G&T's back and had a refund as the bar manager refused to open a new bottle of Gordon's to prove that the under counter bottle was in fact branded.

Definitely aimed at those who like a more lively place menu had a good range. Staff friendly and after dark becomes a party place with DJ's lights and celebrations Personally not my taste but worth a visit to make up your own mind!

Popped in for a quick meeting with a supplier, great food, 2 meals under £10 and arrived under 10 minutes. Much better quality than what I was expecting and such great service. I'll definitely be back.

This was a quick stop off for some grub and a drink after a long day. I was happily supprised that my food was ordered and in front of me within 10 minutes. Was delicious, filling and i loved every bite. Shame all other Yates's cant meet the standards of this one!
