Scott Maslen enjoys female attention at Yates’s.
BUSINESS ISLE of Wight pub Yates’s has reopened after a £190,000 refurbishment.
The Newport High Street pub had been closed for ten days.
DJ Michael Andre, brother to Peter, performed on the opening night to a packed crowd.
The pub is the first of the 71 Yates’s pubs in the UK to have a giant LED video wall as a backdrop to the dancefloor.
General manager Ronan McCann said feedback had been good.
The biggest draw for the opening weekend came when EastEnders heart-throb, Scott Maslen (aka Jack Branning) joined customers as celebrity guest.
Meanwhile, the pub has launched Yates’s Inn The Community to support local projects and charities through fundraising at the pub.
