EastEnders star reopens Isle of Wight pub

An Isle of Wight pub has been reopened by a soap star after a major refurbishment that led to the location being closed for ten days.

Yates's, which is located on Newport High Street, is the first branch of the bar to have a giant LED video wall as a backdrop to the dancefloor, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

EastEnders actor Scott Maslen - who plays Jack Branning in the BBC One programme, was on hand to officially reopen the venue, while there was a DJ set by Michael Andre, brother to singer and reality TV star Peter.

General manager Ronan McCann said feedback from customers after the £190,000 refurbishment of the site had been positive.

Fundraising events are set to be hosted by the pub in the coming months to support local projects and charities.

Yates's has a late licence and from Wednesday to Saturday it is open until 02:00 BST, making it one of the top nightspots on the Isle of Wight.
