The Inn Collection Group has appointed Gateshead-based STP Construction to redevelop its debut Tyneside pubs with rooms.
Work will start this summer at the 53-bedroom former Park Hotel in Tynemouth, which is being transformed by The Inn Collection Group into a family-friendly pub with rooms.
The multi-million-pound redevelopment is expected to take 11 months to complete and will include an ice cream parlour and fish and chip takeaway, and new outdoor seating areas and terraces making the most of the site’s elevated position and the sea views across the Longsands.
Works will also see the transformation of a function area, which is being reconfigured to add a further 20 bedrooms, including sea view rooms and dog-friendly ground-floor suites.
The Inn Collection Group’s managing director Sean Donkin said: “We are delighted to have appointed a construction partner of the calibre of STP and that work is about to get underway to redevelop the former Park Hotel. The countdown can begin for what will be a superb new venue for North Tyneside. This stunning building is long overdue significant investment to give it an exciting new chapter as a thriving inn in the heart of the vibrant community in Tynemouth. We are looking forward to being a part of that community and contributing to North Tyneside’s wider economic growth, prosperity and employment opportunities through year-round increased trading by bringing people into the area and improving bar and dining areas to attract new and local trade.”
A specialist in large-scale restoration, the award-winning pubco recently reopened a former police station in Northallerton as The Northallerton Inn and landmark Helmsley venue The Black Swan following the completion of major redevelopment works at both North Yorkshire venues.
The Inn Collection Group purchased the 53-bedroom venue on Grand Parade, Tynemouth in March 2021 and works are expected to be completed by June 2023.
