Camerons Brewery toasts York expansion with acquisition of Fossgate bar
North East brewer Camerons Brewery has acquired a bar in York.
The Hartlepool-based company bought Sutlers bar, located on Fossgate, and plans to retain all 20 of the venue’s staff.
Opened in March 2015 and occupying a former Army and Navy store, the bar offers a range of cask and craft beers, continental coffees and a traditional British menu.
Sutlers is the 29th venue in Camerons’ growing managed estate division.
Camerons’ director and general manager, Chris Soley, said: “We are delighted to have agreed a deal to take on the Sutlers venue and add this to our growing managed pub group. The bar is the perfect fit for us as we look to add quality city-centre venues to our estate.
“We have been looking at a number of venues in York over the last few years.”
The acquisition follows the opening of a new nano brewery at Camerons’ North East HQ, launched with the aim of driving innovation and developing a range of limited edition beverages.
Chris continued: “Sutlers was always a venue we felt would be a great acquisition for Camerons and we are delighted to have got this deal in place.
“It will be business as usual at Sutlers for the immediate future and we want the pub to operate the same way it has done previously. The venue itself is fantastic and we were really impressed by the offer, food and drinks range available here.”
