Yates Wine Lodge – Established in 1884


Yates is a British pub chain, founded as Yates’s Wine Lodge in Oldham, Lancashire, by Peter and Simon Yates in 1884.  The chain remained strongest in the North of England, though spreading nationwide.

In earlier times, it invented its own range of drinks which it called Blobs, which consisted of sweet Yates’s Australian liqueur Wine and brandy, (a fortified wine), sugar, lemon and hot water. The interior of the pubs had a Victoriana feel and look.

What’s in a blob drink?

A ‘Blob‘ is made from 100ml Aussie Whites, with sugar, lemon and hot water. Similar to a Hot Toddy.
