I'm not sure if it's all Yates across the country, but my local one in Southampton has recently had a refit. This has included the menu being completely re-done, some things amazing and some things slightly disappointing.
I work really close by so before the opening the Yates team gave us a free voucher each to claim something from the new BBQ part of the menu. This instantly intrigued me, I mean who doesn't love a BBQ.
Me and my boyfriend went down just after opening and went for the Ultimate BBQ board worth £19.95.
Yes, this really was the platter we got served! Amazing, eh.
The massive serving included half a grilled chicken, four southern-fried chicken pieces, 10 BBQ wings, spicy sausage, BBQ pulled pork, chilli slaw, beer-battered onion rings and sweet potatoe chips.
So, what did I think? I was extremely impressed with the quality of everything, the only thing we didn't touch was the chilli slaw purely because neither of us like coleslaw. But, it really was all extremely tasty and well-worth the £19.95 price tag.
My favourite had to be the BBQ pulled pork - this was just divine. On first taste, we were fighting to have it all each. I don't know how to describe it but it was so tender and mixed with just the right amount of sauce, I could have happily just had that.
I think the only thing I dislike about the new menu is the price of the cocktails. These used to be a reasonable price, but seem to have jumped up rather alot considering I've always seen Yates as having pub food and drink prices. Food-wise the new menu looks fantastic, well done Yates.
What do you think of the platter? Has your Yates got this new BBQ menu?
