Topping Out celebrated at Northumberland sister inn

August 2018

The completion of the structural building work at The King's Head 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, Northumberland.

The new 30 bedroomed Inn, developed by Arch and its successor company Advance Northumberland will be operated by The King's Head 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.”

Rooms fit for a king 

May 2018

Overnight guests at The King’s Head Inn will be bedding down in the inn’s all new bedrooms following a complete refurbishment of the Newton under Roseberry pub's rooms. 

The inn's en suite bedrooms have been updated with a natural palette reflecting the inn’s peaceful, countryside location in Newton under Roseberry.

Original features such as exposed beams, brickwork and a vintage stove have been retained, duck egg tongue and groove paneling line the inn’s fresh-hued en suites, while crisp, white cottons and sage coloured fabrics contribute to a fresh country style. 

Tartan carpets for guests to pad upon and soft furnishings bring a touch of warmth to the rooms in covered 17th century cottages adjacent to the inn, which sits beneath iconic Roseberry Topping.

General manager of the 12-bedroom King's Head Inn Chris Moor said: “We are absolutely delighted with the makeover to our bedrooms and en suite bathrooms. 

“We have invested significantly in refreshing, enhancing and upgrading our facilities so our guests enjoy staying in a lovely environment with a fresh, new look.  

“We have taken our time over the refurbishment to avoid disruption to our guests, and the end result is certainly worth waiting for. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to come and enjoy the new King’s Head Inn with us.”
