Original Patty Men

The Original Patty Men have opened their second establishment, Kilder. Next door to OPM, the new bar serves a range of craft beers, natural wines, British cured meats and cheese.

Inspiration for the bar came from their interest in craft beer and growing passion for natural wine.

Co-owner Tom Maher said:

‘With the popularity of the beer offering in the restaurant, we wanted to be able to expand on our offering to give the customers a more extensive and varied selection of beers and wine."

Craft beer, cider and natural wine

With 15 beer taps, Kilder will be one of the biggest tap rooms in the city. The bar will sell a variety of craft beers and cider from around the world. The bar will also have four taps dedicated to natural wines.

Tom added:

"The draught beer will be a mixture of the best of British breweries as well as Europe and the rest of the world. There will hopefully be something for everyone. We aim to have a fairly extensive offer of around 50 different options in bottles & cans of beer and cider.

"As well as the wines on tap we will also be serving a modest selection of natural wine by the bottle and by the glass, working closely with Wine Freedom & Unchartered Wines to get our hands on some of the best wines available. On top of that we will also have a carefully curated selection of spirits."

British seasonal produce

Focused on delivering a range of British seasonal produce, Kilder’s food menu features British cured meat, cheese boards and small plates. The cured meat is available as part of a selection or individually by weight.

Provenance is key for them, as Tom explains:

"All of the food produce will be of a high calibre, sourcing from some of the best producers Britain has to offer. Small plates will change fairly regularly as we want to keep the menu as seasonal as possible. We will keep it simple to start and expand on the offering once we’re up and running."

Nordic design 

The bar will follow the same laidback feel as OPM but with more focus on the finish and feel of the environment. The interior will feature nods to Nordic design whilst still being sympathetic and fitting for the location of the railway arches.

As well as the bar area, there is also outdoor seating for the summer which will be used as a shared space connecting the OPM restaurant and the bar. 

Kilder is open Wednesday 5pm – 11pm, Thursday 12pm – 11pm, Friday and Saturday 12pm – 12am and Sunday 12 – 10pm. The bar doesn’t take bookings and operates a walk-in service.
