Thornbridge and Co. are set to open both their Leeds and Birmingham venues. Thornbridge and Co. acquired a site in the vibrant city of Leeds earlier this year and are set to open both this and their hotly anticipated Birmingham venue, The Colmore, next week. 

The team behind Thornbridge and Co. are delighted to announce that they are opening their Birmingham venue, The Colmore, on Colmore Row on Monday 9th December. Their Leeds venue, The Bankers Cat which is located in the heart of the city centre, on Boar Lane, is set to follow just a few days later on Wednesday 11th December.

Both venues will follow in the footsteps of the highly successful Market Cat in York, which opened one year ago and has proven to be a great success. The venues will offer beautiful décor, an enviable drinks selection and outstanding food. Thornbridge and Co. are excited to be adding to the growing social scene in two of the best cities in the UK.

Simon Webster, CEO of Thornbridge Brewery says:

“We’ve been working towards our Birmingham opening for a little while now, so are delighted to see it coming to fruition. To have Leeds opening at the same time and both in advance of what we hope will be a busy festive season is just brilliant. We can’t wait to unveil both venues as they’re looking fantastic. 

Jamie Hawksworth, Owner and Director of Pivovar says:

“Birmingham and Leeds are both absolutely wonderful cities and we’re delighted to be adding to the thriving social scenes in both of them. Both pubs will serve quality craft beer, hand picked wine, spirits and soft drinks and become an integral part of the community in both Leeds and Birmingham.”

The journey will continue with Thornbridge and Co. looking to open sites in Manchester and Sheffield next year.
