Camerons Brewery has confirmed the opening date for The Head of Steam bar in Didsbury. The venue, in the Manchester suburb on Wilmslow Road, will open to the public from 5pm on Thursday, February 1. Camerons began work on the former Sanctuary venue, which has been closed for four years, in December.
The Head of Steam, which has developed a reputation for its range of innovative UK and world beers, will have a selection of keg lines with rotating craft beers, eight cask ale lines (including beers and real cider from around the region and beyond), plus a selection of premium cocktails, spirits and soft drinks.
The food offering will include a brunch menu as well as a range of British pub classics with a focus on fresh, local ingredients. To complement the selection of American beers, the venue will open with a range of burgers and hot dogs. The menu will also include pizzas, beer and food flights. Vegetarian and vegan options will also be included.
Camerons’ chief executive, Chris Soley, said: “We have been looking at a number of venues across the North West and we identified the Manchester area as one of the key places we wanted to open a new site in. Didsbury is a very popular town and we feel our The Head of Steam venue will be another excellent addition to the fantastic range of bars and restaurants in the area.
“We are currently viewing a number of other potential sites across the UK as we look to continue our expansion of our retail pub estate.”
The Didsbury launch follows the North East brewer’s latest opening of its Head of Steam Liverpool venue on Hanover Street in September 2017, plus recent refurbishments at the Brewery Tap (Leeds) and Eagle & Child (York).
