Yates Liverpool have a brand new menu, just in time for summer and we were lucky enough to try it first. The new menu provides a mix of classic British favourites alongside some nifty international delicacies and brand new serves to make for a range that is deep in variety.
In particular, we have to mention the likes of the Fish Finger Sub, Pancake Stacks, and also the Halloumi & Chips option. These comprise the wealth of additions to the Yates kitchen, alongside several superb global burger flavours including the Alabama Burger, the Mexican Chilli Cheese Burger and the Bang Thai Dee (get it?) burger.
It isn’t just the food which has received the restaurant equivalent of DLC, though. The drinks have also received an upgrade, with the Cherry Cream Cola and the Ice Cream Splat joining familiar favourites like the Virgin Pornstar Martini and the Virgin Apple Mojito amongst the range of beverages that you have to consider. On that note, classic pub meals like the 8oz Rump Steak and the Chicken Tikka Masala are still available, and are as tasty as ever!
We opted for the burger and steak options, alongside a traditional mixed grill, when we popped in to check it all out for ourselves, at a time when the internationally-flavoured personality of Yates was being showcased even more due to the ongoing World Cup festivities (which you may have heard about). Indeed, there were several flags hanging around the interior, and there was even a replica of the trophy sitting behind the bar!
The food was very well-presented, providing adequate portions for only £9.95. The burgers and steaks were well-cooked, with slightly smaller samples than expected for the chicken but being no less enjoyable. We were served quickly, with the order being delivered spot-on, and we were given a nice welcome by the staff, who were pleasant and couldn’t have been more helpful. (For this reviewer, it was also a nice surprise to see a light box with my name on it, as included in the image gallery!)
The other bonus for those coming along to try out the new Yates menu is the option to eat outside; you can eat and drink at the back of the venue, while you can sample a fine cocktail while sitting outside the front door. This is always a helping hand during the summer months, and especially while we’re in the midst of a heatwave such as the one at present. Of course, those who prefer more privacy and peace can still opt to eat indoors on either of the venue’s two floors.
Overall, we definitely came away feeling positive about Yates and their new menu, and we believe that our readers will also be impressed should they come along to try some of their brand new food and drinks options. If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a nice meal in the sun, check Yates Liverpool out!
