This is now a TFI Fridays. All done up inside and a lot better than it was when it was Yates's total transformation but they need more staff as waiting times are a bit long

Doesn't even deserve 1 star. This place is filthy and grubby with seriously overpriced drinks - I seriously hate been ripped off!

Usually like going to a Yates pub but walked in here and seriously wished I hadn't. Service was poor. Tables dirty and sticky. Yes it's London but 10 quid for 2 pints is disgusting. Don't waste your time here

Rum and coke (Captain Morgans)=£5 Magners Pear Cider=£4.85 On what planet are these prices decent. Interior shabby, music obnoxiously loud, Wifi functional and more importantly free. Only went because the Wetherspoons was blocked off by red carpet. Never again.

Yates is the perfect place to start a wild evening in Central London but I would suggest eating a Tesco meal deal (or dirt!!) over eating the food they serve here. It arrives cold, tastes worse than cardboard and the staff are privy to forgetting...More
