A Brighton student staple thanks to its rock bottom drinks prices and raucous DJ fuelled weekends, Yates can be found in the heart of town and in the hearts of many locals. 

Contemporary and modern with the space to accommodate stag and hen parties, Yates boasts everything from dining tables to grab a hearty lunch and dinner, to a main bar all newly modernised. Those looking to get a little party hearty on the weekends will be sure as heck seen flocking to the dance floor at Yates where party hits and commercial club tracks courtesy of their resident DJ reign supreme. 

Cheap and cheerful to say the least, Yates is one of the most pocket friendly bars in Brighton. Boasting pub grub and burgers from as little as £6.25 to cocktail sharers made of jelly babies and Skittles for a mere £13.95 for up to 4 people, Yates is a student schmoozing palace just shy of the beachfront.

We rebooked our office Xmas do at Brighton Yates following last year's fabulous do. In many respects, the 2016 experience lived up to our high expectations, including staff's willingness to accommodate our preferences, the flexibility in terms of adapting the menu to accommodate dietary needs and the general enthusiastic, cheerful and thoughtful attitude of staff on the night. My colleagues enjoyed the evening and appreciated the hard work of the team on duty. The place looked great, with attention to detail and the needs of our party of 52, clearly uppermost in the minds of those who designed the night. There were issues with the food, some of which was not cooked well or went cold too quickly. We understand that, for the price, we could not expect gourmet fayre and last year it was consistently decent food, served at the correct temperature in a timely manner. I have fed back to management about the issues with some of the dishes this year and felt that my observations were heard and appreciated. Our party was not easy to cater for, there were a lot of us, drinking lots and moving around, including table hopping. I do not envy the staff's role and we genuinely appreciated their hard work. The less positive aspects of the evening do not undermine our appreciation of, and gratitude for, the efforts of the Brighton team in organising and staffing this event for us. Moreover, their hard work, genial demeanour and good humour has been appreciated throughout the year (the venue is directly opposite our office!) Thanks to all involved, particularly Alice and Tommy. And a MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all. visited Yates on 16 Dec 2016

Thank you Alice and Yates Brighton for opening the festive season for us with out Xmas Meal Sunday evening. A fun time was had by all and our area was great for the kiddies to run around in. Compliments to the chef. visited Yates on 11 Dec 2016

Had my 30th here recently. Drinks were reasonably priced and very tasty. Lovely décor and friendly staff. Unfortunately the platters of food were described as feeding 3-4 each; they barely fed 2 people so it was not good value. None of us have huge appetites so that says a lot about the quantity of food. The food tasted ok. Part of the package we booked was waitress service all night, however 3/4 times we had to enquire about this/ask again for someone to take our drink order. Although it didn't ruin my birthday it was quite disappointing.

Was here with a hen party last weekend and not only were the cocktails and other drinks really cheap, the décor was beautiful and staff were very helpful. Not many bars will allow large groups, but not only did Yates welcome us all, they went an extra mile and a half to reserve us the VIP area and allow us upstairs to play our hen party games- FREE OF CHARGE!!! You will not be disappointed if you are looking for somewhere cheap but lively and fun. PERFECT!
