Decent pub food, prices of food and drinks very good for London. It was very busy but the staff were first class, the food was hot and pretty good for pub grub. A good place for not a lot of cash in the heart of London.

Been there once and I believe, I am done going there..The ambience was nice, However, the crowd was rowdy. Don't want to sound racist here, but there were just too many hooligans tying to mess around in gangs. Bouncers did zero job. If you are not careful all by yourself, you are in for a fight outside Yates atleast!

The Drinks flow was the only good thing in there. The pole dance touch was also kind of nice. Food was just about average, not well presented and taste was strictly OK too.

The Bartender were a bit slow, however Valet's were active. So if you plan to buy yourself a drink over the counter, you can very well take a nap for a while.

Music was upto the mark, but I guess that's with almost every joint out there in Leicester.

Prices were also on a bit higher side for food as well as for drinks. A guinness at waxy o'connors and a guinness at yates had stark price difference. Not sure why!

Pros: Ambience, Dance, Drinks

Cons: Rowdy crowd, Price, Food

So if you plan to visit, I would advice to avoid friday nights (unless ofcourse you are big group ready to take on another). And do not choose the back corner seating as it gets too crowded and secluded from service.

If you are in for just Drinks and Dance, it's a place to be..

Cheers!

Food was OK, but one of the bar staff was so unhelpful and lazy, to be honest I think she was hungover, she took forever to make coffee too, which when I got it wasn't very good. I saw another customer take a photo of his dirty cutlery he was given because it was stuck together with old food.
