The Head of Steam Quayside

This Saturday will see the grand opening of The Head of Steam’s latest bar on the popular Newcastle quayside.  The venue, which is located on the former site of The Eye on the Tyne on Broad Chare Newcastle. 

We really can’t wait till Saturday here at Nights Out In Newcastle as we are big fans of the Head of Steam bars and have been waiting in anticipation to see what they were going to do with their quayside bar.  It promises to be a fantastic addition to The Head of Steam’s growing list of bars with 16 keg lines with a selection of rotating craft beers from UK and world brewers, 8 cask ale lines including beers and real cider from around the region and beyond, plus a selection of premium cocktails, spirits and soft drinks.  This will be the 10th Head of Steam venue in the North East brewers growing pub estate.

Chris Soley, Chief Executive at Camerons Brewery, said: “When we took over the Eye on the Tyne it was always our intention to turn this into a Head of Steam pub. The location is perfect and we are really excited to have a venue in an area that is now associated with craft and cask beers.



“We are delighted to be opening a new Head of Steam back in the city where Tony Brookes first started the group.” Chris continued.

With the emphasis on quality classic pub grub and great beers, ales and ciders, fans of The Head of Steam and Newcastle’s quayside will not be disappointed.  We’ll be doing our duty as Nights Out In Newcastle representatives and getting stuck in to there huge array of beers this Saturday at the opening.  It’s a tough job but we bravely take on the challenge to review every bar, pub and club in Newcastle!  It should be a great day and we are looking forward to seeing what Head of Steam will be up to, with their passion and attention to detail when it comes to great beers and live music.  Something that is well known in Newcastle.

As as their usual excellent quality beers, ales, and ciders they promise to bring some vibrant colour to the quayside whatever the weather with some fantastic cocktails, mocktails and soft drinks. 

They promise to bring their unusual enthusiasm and passion to there new quayside venue and have a lot planned for the coming weeks.  If your coming down to The Head of Steam Quayside you can find them listed in our handy Newcastle bar guide, just click here.  For more information on The Head of Steam Quayside check out there website or you can find them on Facebook and Twitter.

We are very excited to see what will be on the menu in terms of grub too, as Camerons food development Chef Kieran Burke has created a new food concept which will include a brunch menu as well as a great range of British pub classics with a focus on fresh, local ingredients.  A key part of the menu is the great range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options which will constantly be updated to offer a varied selection to customers.

The new Head of Steam will also be part of the NE1 Restaurant Week from 8th-14th August, with 2 courses for £10 or 3 courses for £15, so make sure to put those dates in your diary.
