Drink inn the view at The Bamburgh Castle Inn

The Inn Collection Group has completed the renovation and expansion of its flagship pub – The Bamburgh Castle Inn – in one of Northumberland’s most popular seaside towns.

With views across Seahouses harbour and the coastline towards the Farne Islands, Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle, the renovation allows more customers to experience the view and the inn’s unique experience.

The addition of a raised, glazed terrace has more than doubled seating capacity while making the most of the views across the port and sea.

A previously unused access road has been turned into a light-filled glass atrium, housing a second bar as well as a seating area complete with a log burning stove, rustic timber panelling and nautical décor.

Sean Donkin, managing director of The Inn Collection Group, said: “The Bamburgh Castle Inn has one of the best seaside locations in the UK. When people come to Seahouses, that’s what they want to experience. Individuality is the beating heart of each of our pubs and it’s all about embracing that and enhancing it for greater customer experience. Adding the terrace is all about giving as many people as we can the experience of drinking in the views.”

The addition of the second bar has created an informal area away from the main dining area which has the feel of a traditional pub.

The development has also seen as adjacent building, Coble Cottage – which was purchased by The Inn Collection Group in 2020, repurposed to create 14 en-suite rooms and increase the site’s total number of bedrooms to 60.

Infrastructure has also been carefully considered within the refurbishment. Behind the scenes, a state-of-the-art kitchen can accommodate the increased cover capacity.
