"We've refurbished a few things like the bathroom and we're hoping the mural adds to it. "We have only been open three years but we're so lucky with the local community. "We've done take-away through lockdown but won't be able to continue that once we re-open as we don't have a large kitchen and have such big bookings.

Sam said of his work: "it's almost like an optical illusion, it's a 3D effect. "It looks like a street in Italy and took me about seven days to do. "I get given a brief then get to use my creativity. "With this one, I wanted to make the sky more dramatic." Sam has worked on both industrial and nature-filled murals. He's worked on large murals across Leeds, York and Harrogate and is rapidly gaining fans. Two Brothers Bar and Grills opens next week in line with government guidelines.
