New options include a fish finger sub sandwich from £3.95; pancake stacks from £2.25; and halloumi and chips from £5.25.
The chain’s burger options have expanded and Yates has introduced four new choices - from a crispy southern-fried chicken Alabama Burger and Mexican Chilli Cheese Burger, both priced from £7.95, to a zingy vegetarian ‘Bang Thai Dee’ Burger, available from £6.45.
However, the group was keen to emphasise the existing dishes that would remain on the menu - the 8oz rump steak (from £7.75) will stay on the grill menu and the ‘heroes’ section still has options such as chicken tikka masala (from £4.95), beef and ale pie (from £5.25) and, fish and chips (from £4.95).
The new menu also means new deals, with the group’s offers including: Best of British; Spiced Up; Winner Winner Chicken Dinner and Burger Club, among the daily dishes that run throughout the week.
The drinks selection has also changed. For guests wanting a treat, options include the Cherry Cream Cola (from £7.95) and Ice Cream Splat (from £8.95).
For health-conscious consumers and those choosing not to drink alcohol, mocktails such as the Virgin Pornstar Martini (from £3.45) and the Virgin Apple Mojito (from £3.45) are on offer.
Yates is part of Stonegate Pub Company, which invested half a million pounds into two sites in the north of England earlier this year (February).
Music Hall Taps replaced its predecessor Missoula in Chester, Cheshire, while the Addison Arms, Bootle, Merseyside, returned to its 1980s roots to place of Yates at the heart of the town. Between them, the two developments have created 16 new jobs.
The two-storey Music Hall Taps has the "latest in pub trends", with craft beers, neon lights, shuffleboard, pool tables, live sports and live music, said the pubco.
It offers an urban menu of sourdough pizzas, tempting tapas sharers, and supreme burgers such as Japanese Wagyu beef burger aimed at city dwellers and students.
