Stonegate is to open the first Walkabout bar on the Isle of Wight.

The group is to convert the Yates’ bar in Newport’s High Street.

It is the latest conversion since Stonegate acquired Walkabout at the end of last year.

In the summer the group converted its Missoula site in Colchester to the Australia-themed brand, while the Walkabouts in Exeter and London’s Temple have been converted to other brands.
