We last visited this bar on a very busy summer Sunday and vowed that we would never return at a weekend. What a difference it was visiting mid week - no loud TVs blasting out football - so we could actually have a meal and...More

Very good beer prices. Staff were great under pressure and the extra bar being open was a treat. Atmosphere was on point and even the door staff had a smile. We did win so this might have helped the mood :)

Watched the world cup match against denmark in Yates Pub. The Socceroos should have won, but unfortunately drew. The pub has a big screen, nice beer options and also tasty bites (spiral fries & chicken wings). Nice pub!
