We called in this pub for a pint on a midweek afternoon... this is a large Yates' pub with the usual mix of drinks (including some real ales) at relatively good prices... We could not comment on the food side as did not eat or see food going out to guests... however the beer seemed good - had a great... More

Not even going to waste my time writing alot about this, dirty, floor sticking, under staffed shameful excuse for a public house. Yates's wine lodge should be ashamed to call it this name, some yates's don't have the best name anyhow, but this one is the reason why. Never again.

The toilets are disgusting and in very poor cleanliness and order. This whole pub needs a good scrub from top to bottom. Would never order food here based on the cleanliness of the public areas.

Standard Bolton Town Boozer. Cheap pints means its a good start up point for a drinking session but bare in mind you have to peel your feet off the floor. After you have managed that you may have to also peel off some unsavoury 'ladies' that look as if they may be residents there as you can guarantee no matter... More

They've done it! Wow! Yates Bolton has managed to provide the worst rump steak I've ever had!! Loads of fat, no flavour, and like a mouthful of grease, I had to leave the rest of the meal because it turned my stomach. I've complained to Yates on Twitter. I feel like I need to rinse my mouth out. This comes... More

Popped in for lunch and a drink after a morning shopping. First thing that hits you is the smell which had more than a hint of public lavatory about it. Tried to order two mocktails on the two for one offer but we were told they weren't in the offer. Pointed out that according to the menu they were, and... More

Got to love Yates, Bolton. The cheapest Yates around :) The music is always good, the atmosphere is good and it's a huge place to socialise and meet up with people. Can always have a good night in Yates.
