Jobs boost at booming bar

THE hospitality trade in general might be struggling, but in Bury one business is booming.
For the town’s popular Yates’s bar is bucking the trend by creating a raft of new jobs.
It comes in the wake of a £100,000 refurbishment of the pub which is located in the town’s busy Market Street- a magnet particularly for night-time and weekend revellers.
Nine new jobs have now been created to coincide with the reopening of Yates’s following the significant revamp. The additional jobs, two of which are kitchen-based and seven at front of house, are in response to the anticipated boost in trade.
The pub is situated on the site of a grade two listed building and has had a presence in Bury for a number of years.
The seven new jobs are testament to the buoyancy of the town centre hostelry.
General manager Harry Higgs said: “The pub is much lighter and brighter and the team and I have spent the time whilst the builders and designers have been working their magic to re-fresh customer service skills. We have a new late night opening time of 2am on Thursdays and 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.”
Keeping the customers satisfied is a vital pre-requisite of the hospitality trade and Yates’s service is geared to mirror that ethos.
The pub has long been a popular breakfast, lunchtime and early evening venue. New to Yates’s are three cask ale pumps so customers can enjoy two national ales and a regularly rotating guest ale.
