It's now called the stokers yard. Food was ok (a bit lacking in flavour in some cases), staff were really pleasant but service was all over the place (50 mins before our starter came ), not helped by a faulty fire alarm they couldn't sort for over 20mins. Hopefully these are all just teething problems - time will tell.

Amazing view at the Sand Pearl Hotel in Clearwater, Florida. Food and drink average but can't beat the sunset!

Had Sunday lunch which was cooked with care . Staff friendly. We sat opposite chefs cooking in view of customers. I was impressed with the chefs professional approach.

Booked lunch in Tates for my family of 13 and we were disappointed in the food served. As my grandson was playing football on Saturday morning, I booked the lunch for 2 pm. We were all ravenous and so looking forward to our lunch! Our table (table 1) was behind a curtain. There were a few other tables but we... More

I visited this week for Sunday roast with my mum. Lovely decor and helpful staff though you wait a while for afternoon and for next courses /plates to be lifted. The roast beef itself was tough and seemed to be pre sliced rather than fresh from a roast joint. The rest of the food was lovely bar the greens which... More

We like Tates for after work drinks but last night Sept 23rd the band, although playing good music were so loud we could not carry on our conversation so were forced to leave. Pub music should be background level as people go there to chat and drink

Such a shame that I had to give this review 1 star! Would give less if it was possible! Went out on a Saturday night with a few mates to sit and have a few drinks, enjoy a live band and walk home at closing time after a great night... 9:15 and I'm already home, drinks choice was shocking, band...
