“Great pub meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We were caught in the rain with our daughters on sat 24th may so ran in (literally) for a meal. One of the door staff told us that the familiy dining area was upstairs, great idea as it was loud downstairs.
Kids meals were great, southern fried chicken gougons and a burger both with chips, only down point was that the burger bun was more of a muffin type and our youngest didnt like it but she just pulled the burger out like normal and ate it lol. The majority of the main meals are 2 for £8.95 and are lovely, chicken, cheese and bacon burger with chips and burger relish was gorgeous, very pleasently suprised that it was a grilled chicken breast :-). The hubby had the chicken melt with chips and again very nice and good portion sizes. Drinks are reasonably priced too.
The highlight of our meal tho was a group of lads on a stag weekend that came upstairs for a meal. They made our daughters laugh as they were dressed up as ladies in full regalia, the stag even entertained our eldest when she asked why he was dressed like that, top bunch of blokes amd a great pub for a family meal.

“Miserable rude staff ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Stopped here as it had outside seating and was a glorious sunny day . James a member of staff was the most miserable rude bar person I have ever met and was rude to me son with learning difficulties and to my elderly mother . The words please and thank you clearly alien to him and when HE opened the wrong beer for my son HE blamed my son for bit stopping him . Luckily I'm a lady as had I have witnessed this myself I would have had him over the counter . HOW dare staff this day and age afford to be rude to customers. Apart from a couple rowing at the back of the pub this place was deserted yet is in a prime location YATES it's time to sell this pub or get a refurb

“It's like a private pub its that quiet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Me and my friends had our Friday night in the South Shore Yates and was shocked/pleased how quiet it was.

Karaoke was on but because there was only 8 of us (4 in our group and 4 staff), it seemeds like a private pub just for us - the drinks are what they are - cheap and cheerful and the service was great as we were the only ones there!

The barman were great fun and made us smile that evening - wouldn't have been the same if it was full of people :)

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We arrived at Yates early evening for a drink before heading home after a day on the theme park. Both outside and in was full of people too drunk to function, music was blaring out of several speakers, glass on the floor - and little care for anyone out for a quiet drink.

“Open but no customers or staff. Like ghost pub”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

Passing by looking to sit down with a cold drink we popped into yates. Worker's outside painting the premises but place was open for business. Walked in to find nobody there. No customer's. Waited at bar for 5mins but no sign of life. Left to see local down & outs drinking plastic bottles of cidar in outdoor seating area. This was a wed at 4pm
