Whenever I go out for something to eat with friends or family, we always waste far too much time on actually deciding where to go.

Italian? Someone doesn’t fancy pasta.

Fast food? Another wants a sit down meal.

Chinese? A third simply hates Chinese food.

So having a family-friendly pub restaurant like Yates in the heart of Romford in South Street, where there is usually something for everyone, is ideal.

And guess what - they’ve got a new menu.

We were invited to try out a few dishes for ourselves and were made to feel welcome from the offset by the venue’s new manager.

He sat us down on a small table away with plush seats and gave us time to look over the array of food and let’s just say we weren’t disappointed.

From the Fish Finger Sub and the Pancake Stacks, to the Halloumi and Chips and the Mexican Chilli Cheese Burger, a lot of tasty-sounding dishes have been added to the menu so it was difficult to choose one to try.

But not everything has changed you’ll be glad to hear, as a lot of the popular classic meals have remained such as the rump steak, beef and ale pie and the chicken tikka masala.

So while one of my guests opted in for the new crispy southern-fried chicken Alabama Burger, me and my other friend decided to go for the British favourite of fish and chips.

And quite frankly it was delicious.

Not only did everything look and taste great, the portions were pretty big which is always a good thing in my book.

The venue also had a £400,000 revamp in 2016 with a new bar and lounge area and had its first floor transformed into what they believe to be as one of the best viewing experiences in the area with both BT and Sky Sports - perfect for watching the World Cup from.

So whether you want a delicious meal, a place to enjoy a few drinks or somewhere you can cheer on England from, then you know where to go.

Food is served Sunday - Thursday until 8pm and Friday and Saturday until 9pm.
