Website Design Pitch for Tilleys Bar

Cameron’s Brewery have recently acquired the Head of Steam pubs which include Head of Steam (Newcastle and Durham), The Cluny, Cluny 2, Central Bar and Tilleys Bar. They have been collectively displayed on one website under www.headofsteam.co.uk, Cameron’s now wish for each bar to have it’s own website.

Each site should be unique to each bar however, they should have a similar feel so they can be quickly associated with each other.

The site needs to be easy to navigate as well as interesting and contemporary, it should allow the user to get information quickly and want to view the site. It should headline the USP of each bar, for example Tilleys Bar’s Cinema Room, The Cluny’s Live Gigs, Central Bar’s Cider Festival …etc.

It is very important to display the location of the bar and do it well using Google map integration as well as displaying the actual address.

All of our bars run their own social media accounts, Tilleys Bar is very good with this. So it is integral that social media is linked heavily with elements of the site, in particular Facebook and Twitter.

Should the Tilleys Bar design be a success Cameron’s would look to apply the design across all of the Head of Steam franchise
