We went into to watch the golf, but there was noone at the bar.

The 2 barstaff were sitting in a booth chatting and eventually a lanky young guy in a plaid shirt wandered over and begrudging served us and went back to the booth.

The blonde barmaid he was with served a guy who was standing at the bar and then she went back to the booth. The bar was empty, so they probably thought they could get away with it, but this is terribly inhospitable and we won't be returning. And the food is terrible.

It's just had a major re-fit but is still a town centre venue bar although they do now have 2 real ales(?!) - both from Wells Brewery of Bedford. Bombardier and Yates Bitter which we reckon are both the same beer!! Quite smart inside but definitely one for the "younger set"

Yates' is a must stop off as the first bar on a night out. On a fri and sat night is always busy from 9ish onward, Mostly full of pretty women (With the odd scragger thrown in but u can't have everything). Outside has a large beer garden with a upstairs balcony which is occasionally open in summer. Outside has a cool and handy bar which is great if you want to spend your evening enjoying the weather. Wicked bloke in male toilet selling sprays of aftershave for a quid(' No Armani no poonani, No spray no lay' etc). Manager is a arrogant prick tho, Often seen compensating for a tiny dinkle by shouting and swearing at his staff in full view of punters, While standing there with his thumb in his waistcoat pocket. What a chief. Other than that tool Yates' is a staple on most revellers nights out.

Would not seek it out and would need to think 3 times before deciding to eat here.

Husband and older daughter watched the football here Sunday whilst myself and 14 year old shopped. Met them there afterwards. Sat in the upstairs area, wine fridge broken so kept being told that the glass of wine would be brought to the table but barman more interested in talking on his phone so forgot and had to be reminded 15 minutes later. All ok until 6pm when everyone thrown out of the upstairs area by a beefy bouncer and we were told in a not altogether tactful way that we weren't welcome downstairs with our teenager so had to get out, Charming!
