Twisted Bars, the Yorkshire-based operator, is aiming to roll out its Everybodys all-day pub offer, with a target of 10 sites in the next eight years.

The next site under the Twisted Bars banner will be the Ticket Office Bar at Ilkley station, which is due to open in approximately six weeks after a £250,000 investment.

However, co-founder Adam Lewis, told MCA that more openings under the Ticket Office brand would only ever be opportunistic.

The first Everybodys opened in Guiseley, Leeds, in March 2016 and Lewis said it was now primed for rollout with sites being considered within 30 miles of Leeds.

Lewis, who founded Twisted Bars with Paul Glendinning, also operates The Yard in Ilkley and recently sold the sister site in Malton.

Lewis said: “We’ve not designed this as a niche brand – the clue is in the name. We think this appeals to a wide variety of people. It’s an all-day offer and I think there is a need for someone doing that really well.”

Lewis said funding was in place for the next site and that decisions on future investment would be taken at a later date.
