user reviews of Yates's, York

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Took our children in here and during our meal, we were asked to leave straight afterwards as their policy was that adults were only allowed one drink when eating with their children.

Absolutely ridiculous! We had intended to leave after our food but how rude! They didn't tell us anything at the time of taking our money and nor did they tell any of the other families with babies to leave, just the ones with older children (ours are 3 and 9 and were so well behaved and sat there colouring the whole time we were there!).

Will never ever go in there again and have told all my friends and family to do the same!

What a dump!!!!!!!
Was charged 2 just to get in on Sunday night with a promise that "All drinks are a pound"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a set of lying b*stards they are!
If you like bottles of fizzy pi"s, you will be ok tho'.
Please do yourself a favour and avoid this place.
The Bouncers are unfriendly and unhelpful and are in on the lie!!!!!!!!!
They will just laugh at you!!!!!!!!
If they had worked harder at school they would not have to stand out in the cold trying to look tough, but thats where they do.
They couldn't put a fag out!!!!!! 5 foot 4 of bulls"it!!!!
Have to say though, the bar staff were great and could only apologise for the con!!!!!!!!

As crap as you would expect from a branded booze factory. Surrounded by screaming girls downing shooters, with the odd group of middle aged that don't go out often so know no better....

A pole for dancing around was being used to prop up a drunk couple as they stuck their tongues down each other's throats. Maybe one of them could afford to buy their own alcopop.

The good news? Wells Bombardier at 1.50 a pint. Managed to numb the pain somewhat.

Massive spacious bar filled to the roof with guys still halfway down the evolutionary scale and gals who make Fizz from Coronation Street look like a Diva.
It's clean and hygienic, but the floors sticky with spilled WKD's and shooters, probably smeared in deeper by all those dragging knuckles and Ugg boots. Don't do it, just don't. Ever.

Everyone knows what Yates' are like, they are the epitome of "love it or hate it",this one is no exception. I personally am not a fan in the slightest. They sell booze, not drinks, cheap, on deals and what immediatly springs to mind is sickly sweet, syropy, alco-pops. This probably explains the sticky floor, but what explains the bad music, far to loud for any thinking, escapes me. I don't bother with it.
