1980s Horsforth nightspot Mavericks to reopen as Lambert’s Bar and Cookhouse
A former cocktail lounge which specialised in 1980s music is to reopen as a new bar and restaurant.
Mavericks on Town Street in Horsforth is to reopen as Lambert’s Bar and Cookhouse by the end of the April following a major refurbishment.
It is hoped the venue, under the new ownership of G & G Inns Ltd. will provide a quality food and beverage offering for Horsforthians and passing trade.
New owners, Craig Isaacs and Gordon Lambert, are experienced operators with a portfolio of seven pub businesses.
They said: "Having found the site in an ideal location, we knew the potential for the building to become a bar and restaurant was significant.
"We’re excited to open the doors to the residents of Horsforth in the very near future. We aim to establish ourselves in quick succession and hopefully appeal as a destination venue for the surrounding towns and cities."
Mavericks was sold through specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co.
Sam Ashton, business agent for Christie and Co, said: "The opportunity was advertised on the market for just over four weeks before it was under offer with Craig and Gordon. The sale indicates the ongoing appetite for nil premium empty units in affluent parts of Yorkshire."
