a great local bar, with superb local music. when I was living in Florida, I enjoyed getting there early for a seat at the bar and a beer or two along with great conversation with the friendly bar tenders. become a regular at Yeomans... it’s a fabulous spot for good beer, good conversation and great music.
Been a while since I visited but enjoyed it that time. Davis Island is a nice place and the stores around gave it a little village feel. The pub had a nice friendly feel about it, and the staff were on the ball and the beers were nothing over the top, but just what I expected. Wish I was closer!
Originally a very traditional English pub, over the past few years and owners it has become watered down. Now more of a sports bar - hippie hangout - sort of like an UK pub mixed with FL sunburns and key west mindset. Beer selection is usually very good for the small size of the bar. Food is greasy, but decent pub fare with pretty generous sandwiches and good price on the fish and chips. Standard selection of micro-brews, some good bottles and a handful of the domestics. Usually a $5 and up cover on Thursdays-Saturdays for bands that range from bad jam music to great jam music.

The place is really exciting and loud on the weekend but more laid back during the week. It’s a great place to meet friends for a good time if your into the live music scene (who isn’t). The prices are way too high and the food is only better than average. The staff is cool.
Visited on 6/21/08. Located in an aging strip mall on Davis Islands in Tampa, the interior has a quaint, neighborhood pub feel. Even during the middle of the day, the bar seems dark but still inviting. Our server greeted us quickly and went over the draft and bottle selections. She did not produce a draft menu but rather listed them from memory. Not many interesting beers on draft on this day, but the bottle selection was solid. The bottle listing not only provided the name, ABV, country of origin and size of the beer, but it also gave a few tasting notes that helps those not well-acquainted with beer. The food we had was also very good and quickly delivered to our table. Granted, we visited in the middle of a Saturday afternoon with only 5 other patrons in the pub, but we were pleased with what we experienced. The only disappointment was that my Chimay Red was served in a Miller Lite pint glass, but the server explained that patrons are stealing all of the nice glassware (and she indicated that it should have been served in a goblet, thus somewhat exonerating here in MHO). Worth a trip if you are in the Tampa area.
I have only been to Yeomans once, but it was a cool pub and in a nice location. Plenty of beers to choose from (can only drink so many in one visit) I never ate, but noticed a lot of people ordering food. Def be back.
