Brewery invests six-figure sum in Sheffield pub

Camerons Brewery has invested a six-figure sum in its first pub in Sheffield, creating up to 30 jobs.

The Old Monk, on Norfolk Street, close to the famous Crucible & Lyceum Theatres, has become the firm’s eighth branded Head of Steam venue in its growing retail estate, which boasts more than 70 locations throughout the North.

Following the investment, the venue, which will open next month, is to undergo a complete refurbishment that will transform the site and offering.

The company has also continued its working partnership with Longhorns Barbecue Smokehouse which will oversee the running of the kitchen at the new Head of Steam and deliver a very unique smokehouse BBQ offer to the people of Sheffield.

Chris Soley, Director & General Manager at Camerons Brewery, said: “It is an exciting time for the company as we look to develop our brands through significant investments and launches throughout the Northern region. The Old Monk acquisition fits perfectly into our growth plans and will be an exciting addition to our Head of Steam portfolio in Yorkshire.”

Camerons’ latest acquisition follows the addition of its second Head of Steam location in Leeds, in Headingley, which is also undergoing a complete refurbishment and is expected to open in April.

Mr Soley added: “Since adding the Old Monk to our growing retail estate, it has always been our intention to turn this venue into one of our premium Head of Steam cask and craft outlets. It is a fantastic opportunity for Camerons and we are delighted to see our pub group extend outside our traditional North East area.

“The prime city centre location, so close to the Crucible Theatre, was a key reason why we took over the Old Monk and we believe that it will develop into one of our flagship pubs.”
