Yates Bar was visited as we were thirsty after our train train journey because it is so convenient straight out of Victoria Station. We should have gone back to the train station buffet instead!

Went here with the kids for a trip to the cinema and something to eat and it's a great place with a good atmosphere and as an added bonus they had some free entertainment on in the form of arts and craft activities which the kids loved. The only criticism I have is that when there I challenged a lone... More

I'm not a regular visitor to the big cities, especially at night. A good friend had decided to hold his retirement party here hence attendance. Extremely impressed with the venue, the security and staff at multiple venues. Also easily dropped off and picked up outside. Recommended.

Went to Yates printworks for an all day breakfast and it was quite possibly the worst breakfast I've ever had, first the bacon and sausages were burnt and the replacement bacon I was given was then cold and the portion size of the breakfast was tiny I will definitely not be returning again

Visited to go to the cinema and have something to eat. Plenty of places to choose from - Frankie and Bennies, Hard Rock Cafe, Nandos etc. We had a lovely meal in Prezzo and then went to watch a film. Like the Printworks as it's never too rammed or full of drunks!

My partner and I ventured in here on a very rare kid free night. My partner has a very biker style dress and wears baseball hats and was refused entry with this on in several bars. Now I completely appreciate that the bar scene does try and keep the clientele standards above par however I can categorically state my partners... More

A great afternoon of soul music with Dj Dave Starr & live band The Soul Temptations. Drink prices were reasonable with the added bonus of diet pepsi buy your first drink & get free refills. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, we certainly did.

The credits were rolling, got my phone out to have a quick check and the staff cleaning up called Ryan said "do you mind getting out as we are closing"?!?!!! Some teenage boy telling me a 30something yr old to get... More
