Now a Tesco Express after a couple of years empty.

What has happened to this place on a Friday night recently? Once the starting point for a decent Guildford H-File search on a Friday night, it has descended in a farce. Why? Well no matter how busy it becomes here now, management refuse to let people upstairs (bar women going to the ladies), where incidentally there are pool tables, a dance floor and another bar. Even the DJ has been forced downstairs and is now camped underneath the staircase. So once you have eventually been served (note you could go across the road to Flares and be served quicker than in here at times on a Friday night now), unless you sit down, you end up standing by the entrance or in front of the toilet entrance on busy nights. Trust me they are not the best places if for instance you fancy a dance!

In the summer of 2007 this was a quality place to stay for a long while before moving onto a club. Now, however, Yates' has merely become a meeting place on a Friday night, where you take advantage of the cheaper drink prices between 6 and 9pm before quickly moving on. Maybe then Slug & Lettuce is the new Yates' regarding the Guildford H-File search on a Friday night�

I missed the brilliant 'Peep Show' on Channel 4 (hooray for the E4 repeat) to come here Friday night (4 May). As with Lloyds I went upstairs to be served and the place was practically empty. Had to drive later, so had a pint of coke at �1.75 and discussed Guildford bouncers with friendly bar staff while being served.

More livelier atmosphere in here than Lloyds with a DJ blasting out tunes in front of the dance floor, even if there were only a few (older) women dancing on it. Pool table area is handy if you fancy a game and this part of Yates' quickly filled up. Great to see Sky Sports News on the TV screens around the place. This Yates', however, did seem a bit on the dark and dingy side. The toilets, moreover, are awful, compounded by the sad figure of a toilet attendant going on about 'freshening up for the ladies' and other rubbish. �1 for a squirt of Hugo Boss and the women will fall at my feet will they? Clueless.

Yet in spite of the above, this was the better place for me when compared to the Lloyds across the road to come searching for H-Files�
