Acting on behalf of a private landlord, Michael Chamberlain, Colliers International’s Leeds Licensed & Leisure team has agreed a deal which will see a new craft and cask ale pub open its first establishment in Leeds.

New pub concept, Head of Steam owned by Camerons Brewery has taken a site of approximately 4,000 sq ft of space on the ground floor of 12 Mill Hill, Leeds, close to Leeds Railway Station.

Head of Steam is the latest brand to be launched by Hartlepool-based brewery, Cameron’s. The Head of Steam brand already has premises in operation in Durham, Huddersfield and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne as well as pubs/bars operating under different names which include; The Central in Gateshead, alongside The Cluny, Cluny 2 and Tilleys Bar in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

On the deal, Leigh Parsons, Director in Colliers’ Leeds Licensed & Leisure team said: “Head of Steam has built a strong reputation in the North East with a number of successful bars and pubs currently in operation. Expansion in Yorkshire is the natural next step for the brand, with the new property providing a visible premise in the city centre from which to attract passing trade.

Chris Soley, Director & General Manager for Camerons Brewery said “We are delighted to once again have a pub back in the magnificent city of Leeds.  Previously Camerons had a number of venues in the city and we are pleased be able to launch our Head of Steam brand here”.

Joe Smith, Operations and Pub Director added “When we identified potential new venues and locations as part of our expansion plans Leeds was one of the first destination we had on our list.  It is a vibrant city and the Mill Hill area adjacent to the central station is a busy area, with several great pubs creating a fantastic circuit. We feel the Head of Steam brand will fit in perfectly with the people of Leeds”. In the site we are going back to the roots of the original Head of Steam strategy of locating close to main line railway stations.

“Cameron’s are looking to expand the brand further across the North specifically in prime Cities & Towns”
