A POPULAR pub which has stormed to success since it opened last year has applied to extend its licence.

The Twisted Lip, in Baker Street, which opened in May, is hoping to gain approval from Middlesbrough Council to serve alcohol for an extra hour-and-a-half at the weekend.

It has also applied to include all licensable activities to its new extension.

"The licensable activities applied for are to include additional bar area on first floor and extend the hours for the licensable activities from 11pm to 12.30pm Friday and Saturday only", reads the public notice for the application.

The owners also wish to "include the first floor for all licensable activities," it adds.

Owner Erica Saul, 35, from Linthorpe, previously said that they have had to turn people away on Friday and Saturday nights.

"Since opening we have had an absolutely fantastic response," she said.

As previously reported, the pub recently extended - turning two previously disused rooms into an upstairs bar and seating area. Downstairs a cosy snug has been created.

The Twisted Lip is a haven for real ale fans offering an array of beers imported from as far as 6,000 miles away to those created by microbrewery Truefitt Brewing Company near Cargo Fleet Lane, Ormesby.

Middlesbrough Council's licencing committee will now consider the proposals.
