Hiding in Reform Place, just off North Road is the Oasis that is the Head of Steam Durham. Just a stone’s throw from the famous Durham Cathedral and the popular Riverwalk it’s the perfect spot after a day of site seeing. Offering The Head of Steam’s celebrated selection of exceptional local craft beer and real ale as well as boasting breweries from all around the world, an array of cocktails, spirits and environmentally conscious wine as well as hot drinks.

The venue has a beautiful outside balcony and terrace area, which is the perfect place to enjoy your favourite tipple, away from the hustle and bustle of the City.  The venue has two floors, with the upstairs being the perfect place for your next afterwork drinks or business meeting.

Looking for something to eat? The Head of Steam offers a wide variety of food, from the firm favourite of ‘The Alright Chuck’ Burger to the new addition (but sure to become a top contender)! of the ‘Zeafood’ Tacos – which are completely vegan and packed with flavour! With the menu being 50% vegan we are proud to be working alongside and recognised by Vegan Friendly UK.
