The food offering will include a brunch menu as well as a great 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 12” hot dogs.  The menu will also include deli taster boards, energy bowls as well as Head of Steam favourites of fish & chips, sausage & mash and tacos.  Dishes such as their Mac ‘n’ Cheese also incorporate the brewers Röad Crew beer in the cheese sauce.  A range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options will also be included offering a varied selection of dishes to customers.

Chris Soley, Chief Executive at Camerons Brewery, 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 expansions of our retail pub estate” Chris added.

The news follows the North East brewers latest opening of their The Head of Steam Liverpool venue on Hanover Street on the 21st September plus the recent refurbishments at the Brewery Tap, Leeds and Eagle & Child, York.
