Not the best pub in the area. Went in with my son to have a quick drink. The selection of ales was pretty poor. Son bought me a lager and we sat down. After a few minuets son asked young barman if he could put the Horse Racing on that was advertised outside. Barman said he will ask the manager as he is not allowed to change the channels. After 40 minutes we left and they still did not change the channel. I heard they only show pay TV and not the Council TV that I wanted. ITV 1.

Lager was ok though.

Went in to watch the football as we had a few years ago when we visited Brighton. Orders a beer and burger meal but we were told that both the beers offered with the deal were off - no alternative offered! We asked if we could have anything else and we told no, 'if we haven't got it you can't have it' we were told 'we don't have to offer an alternative'. Appalling attitude, grimy pub with a lot of worked needed on it. The bar was empty, every other bar in the area absolutely packed to bursting, they need to work out why!

Looked in and came out, nasty little hole, like the one in Croydon.

Lovely atmosphere! Have been there to eat during the day and during the evening and I have never felt anything other then welcome and safe. great value for money and lovely staff who know how to do their jobs very well. I do think the beer garden could do with a refurbish though

I was very impressed with my visit to Yates in Brighton. The staff were friendly and the food I ordered was delicious and came very quickly. I found the prices were very good-a bottle of wine for less than 5!! Highly recommended.

Absolute hell hole.

Rude staff who cannot speak English.

Very dodgy people go in here.

I always felt like something was going to "kick off".

Do not go in here.

Godawful, but I would put that down to location more than anything else. Typical West Street, really

Fantastic. Went in for breakfast. Very cheap and friendly staff. We will go again.

Good food, mostly good drinks, but STAY AWAY from their jugs of cocktails. The concept itself should have been enough to put most sane people off, but just in case: they tend to only contain 6 shots of alcohol, a tonne of ice, and are so foul they are generally unconsumeable.
