user reviews of Yates's, Norwich

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The thing with Wetherspoon's bars, is you either love them or you hate them. Personally I love some and hate other. Yates, however is on my 'Love' list.

It gets a lot of bad reviews, but I actually think Yates is a must-visit destination on a Friday night pub crawl.

The music isn't fantastic, but it's typical cheese you can dance to. They serve a good range of drinks at reasonable prices, including cheap shots for the resident chavs. They serve average, cheap pub grub. Nothing great but will dampen your hangover.

The toilets could be nicer, but all round the decor is nice. I give it a cheapy but chirpy 8/10.

It's shit 'cos it's Yates's but it's one of the least shit Yate's I've been in. Nothing wrong with the beer or selection. Decor wise like any other Yates's. Toilets could do with a refurb but clean and functional. Ebay plasma screen TVs everywhere. Music is marginally better than the usual boom boom club shit. Ok it's not Stairway to Heaven and if I sound like I'm defending Girls Aloud, then I'm not but it's just that reasonable inoffensive pop chart shit, which is shit but not as shit as dance music. That's the most shit's I could get into one sentence. Never seen any trouble there, door staff seem pretty switched on. Still a Yates but ok for a couple of drinkks

Another crusty turd drops out the backside of Yates wine lodge with depressingly predictable results. All chain pubs have a giant factory somewhere that farts out cloned establishments into the face of every town and city in the country, so if you`ve ever been to any Yates you know what to expect: cheapo light wooden furnishings, bargain basement sofas, pounding pop plastic music and a dull lager heavy drink selection that is as barren as a glamour model’s intellect. And of course there is the clientele – a delightful combination of chaved up slappers and cerebrally challenged muppets who spend most of the night fighting amongst each other or mating in the skany toilets.

Although, since this is Norwich, the usually unpleasant atmosphere you’d expect in a Yates is toned down a little, owing to the towns own placid (or simply “nice”) nature and the fact that the riverside area tends to suck up most of the real morons with the force of a hurricane. Still on my two visits there were both times cat fights on the far too compact dance area: though don’t get excited lads, on each occasion the participants didn’t look like they were too familiar with the terms “weight watchers” or “non-Big Mac diet”.

The slightly less aggressive feeling coupled with the admittedly cheap drink selection and fairly decent food does mean that I`ll be gracious and award a higher mark than I usually do for this chain`s pubs. So well done Yates: Norwich – 2/10

My wife and I have been regular patrons during the day and have been more than happy. However, we were recently visiting Norwich to go to the theatre with our 15 year old son (at around 6PM on a Tuesday) and we were promptly told that we would not be welcome - even though we were intending to have a sit-down meal.
Apparently nobody under the age of 18 is allowed in the place after 5PM. It was highly embarassing for all of us. What a ludicrous policy to adopt! We ended up eating in a nearby restaurant.
