Head of Steam
L-R Stuart Handford, General Manager for HoS Leicester and Mark Connor, Openings Manager get set for The Head Of Steam.

A new bar is set to launch in Leicester’s Market Street on Thursday 5 April, shortly after plans were announced for a venue in Nottingham, creating a further 30 jobs for the region.

The new Head of Steam bar will replace the former Reynard pub in Leicester city centre, and will champion local breweries as part of its offering, including Brewsters, Charnwood and Framework & Langton. With 30 lines showcasing some of the best craft ale, real ale, cider and beers from around the world.

Set across two floors, the 3,509 square foot space will offer a main bar, a VIP floor that can be reserved for special functions like business conferences and meetings, and a beer garden with seating for 30 people.

The Head of Steam, is owned by Camerons Brewery, and will offer customers the chance to choose from more than 120 different brews which they can enjoy in a welcoming space designed with a modern-twist.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Chris Soley, chief executive at Camerons Brewery, said: “We are thrilled to be opening another venue here in the East Midlands, as part of our continued and rapid expansion south of the country. The Midlands is a thriving hub for business, and the perfect place to carry on our expansion.

“We are on course to open the Nottingham venue at the end of March, and Leicester next month with Birmingham planned for later in the spring/summer. More plans are in store for the Midlands as we move forwards, so watch this space.”
