Tuesday night - quiet but a decent crowd. The staff are very good behind the bar but the floor staff are not as good. Food was very quick but they didn't have 2 of the mains and 2 of the desserts we asked for. Not a good sign. Food was a bit overcooked and the dessert sauce overheated . Would... More

On a trip to Liverpool we decided to try Yates for breakfast as our hotel was not far. We were a family group of 7 and had the traditional breakfast, omelettes and porridge. Everyone enjoyed the food and the portion sizes were good. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We decided to come back in the evening for some... More

On a visit to Liverpool we came across Yates in Queen's Square. What a lovely place. We have heard that it has undergone a refurb. It's lovely. The food is great. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We have enjoyed it.

I have been an occasional customer over the past year, however after the new refurb I'll definitely be coming back more regularly! Staff are well presented and very attentive. The food service is brilliant and VERY quick, and although the food is delivered to the table quickly the quality of the food/service isn't faulted one bit! Would highly recommend!

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!
