The iconic pub, Yates which is located on a prime Blackpool Promenade location has announced that it has closed permanently with yesterday (Saturday 19th March) being its final day of trading.
A spokesperson for Yates yesterday said, ‘Today is the day, it comes with deep sadness that we are closing our doors forever tonight, This wasn’t an easy decision to make. It’s truly been our honour to serve you all at Yates Blackpool South and we’ve made memories that will last a life time!! From all the team at Yates Blackpool South………..GOODBYE’
A search shows that the venue, owned by Stonegate Pub Company, had been listed for sale for £900,000 and property agents Fleurets have confirmed it has been sold ‘subject to conditions’ (see below).
Today, on a very sunny Sunday, Yates’ doors are firmly closed……
