The Head of Steam rolls into Nottingham
NRBA sponsors, Poppleston Allen, the UK’s leading firm of alcohol licensing solicitors, has helped launch the city’s latest pub project from Camerons Brewery…The Head of Steam, situated in the historic Lace Market area of Nottingham.
The Head of Steam opened to the public at the end of March as the North East brewing company behind the brand, Camerons, continues with its pub roll-out project – which has also seen it open a site in Leicester.
The brand has taken over the site formerly occupied by Missoula Montana Bar & Grill on High Pavement, opposite the Pitcher & Piano.
Commenting on the opening, Associate Solicitor at Poppleston Allen, Sarah Taylor said: “It’s great working with The Head of Steam brand during this exciting time in their expansion. You can really feel their genuine enthusiasm for wanting to create a really great bar offering. And they have secured a cracking site in the Lace Market which, as any Nottingham pub goer knows, is the place to be for socialising. I’m sure this will be a great success.”
Like its other venues, the Nottingham site includes an eclectic selection of UK and world beers, including 19 keg lines that vary from the traditional to the downright quirky. It includes a selection of rotating craft beers and eight cask ale lines, with beers sourced from the local area as well as brewers across the UK. A selection of premium cocktails, wines, spirits and soft drinks completes the drinks range.
Food is served daily until 9pm with breakfast and brunch options available until 3pm. On offer are traditional British pub classics with a contemporary twist including fresh artisan stone-baked pizzas, burgers, hot dogs and pies. The menu also includes selected dishes using beers on sale in the bar as ingredients, including the Full Head of Steam Burger which is made with brewers’ Röad Crew American Pale Ale, a collaboration beer with legendary British rock band Motörhead. There is also a Besler on the menu, which at £14.95 offers a selection of three lights bites and matching beer flight to share.
Camerons Chief Executive, Chris Soley, said: “We have spent a lot of time looking for venues across the UK, and in particular the Midlands area. Both Nottingham and Leicester were obviously cities we were extremely keen to see the Head of Steam brand feature in, and we’re delighted we were able to secure venues for both in prime city centre locations.”
Anyone enjoying live music will be delighted to hear that the venue is hosting live music nights every Thursday and Sunday. They’ve also introduced Beer & Burger Wednesdays for just £10, and there’s a welcome – any time – for man’s best friend too!
