Topping Out celebrated at new Amble sister inn

August 2018

The completion of the structural building work at The Lindisfarne Inn's sister pub with rooms, The Amble Inn, has been marked with a topping out at the development site in Coquet Enterprise Park, Amble.

The new 30 bedroomed Inn, developed by Arch and its successor company Advance Northumberland will be operated by Lindisfarne Inn owners, the multi award winning Inn Collection Group. It is located off the A1068 leading into Amble from the south, the two-storey building has been designed to provide an attractive venue for daytime and evening trade. 

The investment of £4m is expected to create the equivalent of 35 full time jobs in the town once the building work and fit out completes later this year.

The Inn has been designed with 30 bedrooms including a mix of family and twin rooms, with a 150-seated restaurant and bar with further seating in an external terrace, car parking and cycle spaces.  The development is part of a wider plan to enhance Coquet Enterprise Park and the Inn will contribute to the town’s tourism offer by increasing the accommodation availability and helping to attract additional visitors.

The Inn will operate on The Inn Collection Group model of providing value-for-money accommodation, quality beverages including local real ales, and homemade pub fare served all day, 365 days a year. The Inn Collection Group has an expanding portfolio of inns with rooms across the North East and North Yorkshire.

The Inn Collection Group's managing director Sean Donkin said: “We are excited to have reached this important milestone in the building of The Amble Inn and look forward to the completion of this landmark property.  

Our focus will now be placed on the building’s interior design and build. We will be creating something rather special which, once finished, will be a hugely popular dining and bar area supported with an excellent accommodation offering.

The Amble Inn will be a key driver in supporting Amble’s regional economy with strong job creation and inter trading opportunities as well as providing those who live, work and are visiting Amble with an outstanding new environment to eat, drink and sleep in.”

Richard Wearmouth Chair of Arch said: "This key development will bring quality, new accommodation which would undoubtedly mean more visitors and therefore more business for Amble. The Inn will not only enhance Coquet Enterprise Park as part of our long-term plans for the area but it will also bring much needed jobs to Amble. It’s developments like this which increase the potential for attracting inward investment to benefit Northumberland as a whole.”
