How the Head of Steam Leicester will look


The Head of Steam Leicester bar, on the city’s Market Street, is set to launch on Thursday, April 5, at 5pm.

It will replace the former Reynard pub in the city centre, and will champion local breweries as part of its offering, including Brewsters, Charnwood, Framework, and Langton. There will also be speciality keg lines, as part of 30 taps serving craft beer, real ale and beers from around the world.

Set across two floors, the 3,509 square feet 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 Hartlepool-based 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.

Camerons’ chief executive, Chris Soley, 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.”

Established in 1995, The Head of Steam now has 13 pubs across the North of England in cities such as Leeds, Newcastle, Hull, and Liverpool.
