Birmingham site acquired by Camerons Brewery for The Head of Steam pub

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has completed on the successful acquisition by Camerons Brewery of a vacant unit in Birmingham, located on Temple Street in the city centre. As part of the expansion of its The Head of Steam pubs brand, Camerons Brewery plans to open its first venue in Birmingham at the site.

Considered the key drinking and dining circuit in the city, the property’s Temple Street location offers a prime opportunity to capture custom and capitalise on the area’s high footfall. Situated close to Grand Central station, operators benefit from being in close proximity to the business district and shopping hub in a major city that also attracts a multitude of tourists and visitors daily. 

The ground floor unit is one of two large leisure spaces in Somerset House, an art deco building which also provides office space on the property’s upper floors. Based in the north east of England, Camerons Brewery has been growing its The Head of Steam managed pub portfolio throughout the North and the Midlands, targeting desirable locations in the region. 

Mick Hill, Head of Property & Acquisitions, Camerons Brewery Ltd, comments on the acquisition, “We have a long relationship with Christie & Co and are delighted to have secured a prime site in Birmingham City Centre. Josh Sullivan proved to be an excellent asset and we are grateful for his help in getting this one over the line.”

Joshua Sullivan, Business Agent at Christie & Co, who handled the purchase comments, “This is a great move for Camerons Brewery in developing its The Head of Steam group of pubs and we are pleased to have been able to support the purchase and continue our ongoing relationship with them.

“Temple Street offers prime real estate, having changed quite considerably over the past three years, becoming more of an epicentre for licensed operators and Birmingham provides the perfect setting, as a key city and the next natural step for Camerons’ aggressive expansion of the brand.”
