Attraction details
Owner description: Yates's Southampton is in the heart of the town, next to West Quay shopping centre, with a taxi rank directly outside, along with stops for the main bus routes and approximately 200m from the train station. We pride ourselves on being able to accommodate all ages and all needs. During the daytime, we offer a plush (but easy-going) atmosphere, with a vibrant lunchtime trade, or an easy venue to chill, meet, eat and drink, with Sky and ESPN sports on our two big screens and 11 plasmas. By night, Yates's becomes one of the best late-night venues in the area. We have something for everyone across the week,from quids-in Thursday and huge party nights on Friday and Saturday, plus the biggest pub quiz in Southampton on Sunday evenings. We have three amazing resident DJs, plus a sound system and lighting rig envied by many. We are by far the best sports bar in Southampton with our 16ft BIG screen!

This is one of those high street bars you see and recognise immediately, but never for the right reasons.
In it's defence the food menu is cheap, but you'd expect it to be given it's from a microwave. Sadly however the drink prices don't match the same value. Couple this together with the atmosphere which was helpfully created by a mouthy Australian manager swearing at his staff & some of the customers & you have a bar never to return to.
A plus would be that they do show sport on several screens as well as attempt to stream live football illegally from a laptop, but I would only say attempt as it was far from watchable.

If you love sport, great music covering all ages and genre, fab value good food, fast efficient bar staff, and generally a happy fun place to be then Yates' Southampton has to be the best place for miles around! It is an environment where locals, New Forest folk, uni students, visiting footy fans, and groups of friends of all ages can feel comfortable together enjoying the best things in life. Old man Pete runs a tight ship that amazingly manages to cater for everyone at all times. If you love a fun buzzin' vibe then don't bother going anywhere else!

Nothing special about this place just a town centre local. Wouldn't go for a romantic meal with a partner. My food was cold and the place was full of old drunks. Shame!

Full of very drunk kids, absolutely awful. Will never set foot inside the place again !! I'm not sure they know about responsible retailing as a lot of people were clearly very drunk. No wonder the police were parked permanently outside. AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!
