The singer of metal band Bring Me the Horizon has created a vegan burger for the menu of a street food-style burger residency, which is set to launch at the Yard pub, Ilkley.

Vocalist Oli Sykes created the 'Drop Dead Double Stuffed Falaf-Hell burger' for vendor Twisted Burger Company, which will be serving food permanently at the Yard starting 1 February.

Sykes's burger consists of a double falafel patty with grilled aubergine, sweet chilli and lime sauce, red onion and vegan-minted sour cream. It has already featured on the menu at other Twisted Burger Company sites.

Twisted Burger Company already operates from three other Yorkshire pub kitchens: the Harley and the Riverside, both in Sheffield and the Vintage Bar, Doncaster.

This is the second burger the band created for Twisted Burger Company. The first, 'Bring Me the Burger' went on sale at the Harley, the Riverside and the Vintage Bar in December.


Twisted Burger Company operations manager Lauren Dyke said: "We are supremely excited to be launching a residency at the Yard in Ilkley. As a true Yorkshire independent, it's great to be expanding northward."

Other burgers available at the pop-up include the Pig Daddy Kane, with pulled pork and American cheese, barbecue sauce, and chorizo and apple jam and the Holy Cluck, with chorizo, American cheese, guacamole and jalapeno salsa.

Sloppy Joes

ETM Group site the Hat & Tun, in Farringdon, London, which has hosted a range of pop-ups including Hix's Fishdog​ and Morty & Bob's​ during the past year, has announced its next residency.

Italian-American street food business 'Capish?' will be serving a range of New York-style meatball subs and 'Sloppy Joes' from  the pub's kitchen from 17–19 February and 24–26 February.

ETM Group marketing co-ordinator Victoria Hassett previously told the Publican’s Morning Advertiser​ (PMA​): "[Street food venders] carry huge clout in the digital arena but lack the financial resources to move into bricks and mortar.

"By joining forces we are offering these flourishing businesses a solid location to base themselves and a ready-made clientele. In turn, we are opening up our venue to a whole new audience."
