A Brandesburton man is the driving force behind a trendy new American style seaside restaurant and bar.
Craig Higginbottom, who was a chef at the Funny Onion under its old management, has joined forces with Andrew Bettney to run Wild Bills at the Funny Onion on Hilderthorpe Road in Bridlington.
Working front of house is Emma Wilkinson, a former barmaid at the Star Inn, on Exchange Street, Driffield.
Nr Higginbottom said they are confident the pub’s re-branding and new menu additions will boost business..
He said: “Andrew and I have 25 years experience in this game – I was previously a chef here for two years but now I’m managing it.
“We have started to stock locally sourced food and craft ales – everything that is popular at the moment.”
The steak and grill-house have also revamped their menu to draw in new customers, but held on to some of the more popular items including their selection of 16 different home-made burgers.
Mr Higginbottom added: “It is still all home cooked food. Bridlington sometimes gets left behind with what’s popular, so we are working to change that to make it a success.”
