One of County Durham’s landmark inns is set to reopen following a complete refurbishment.

The Seaton Lane Inn in Seaton will reopen on Friday April 6 at 12 noon following a major overhaul.  Customers will be able to experience the inn’s all-new redesigned dining area, complete with signature furniture, contemporary lighting and fresh colour schemes.

An expansive orangery providing an informal space for customers to meet over drinks or dining will adjoin a new bar, serving a wider range of local, national and craft ales, spirits, soft drinks and speciality teas and coffees, while each of the inn’s en suite bedrooms has had a complete renovation.

Part of The Inn Collection Group’s portfolio of award-winning pubs with rooms, The Seaton Lane Inn is a well-established and popular venue within the business community scene.

The Inn Collection Group’s managing director Sean Donkin said: “This is an exciting chapter for The Seaton Lane Inn and will mark a milestone in its history.

“Customer experience is critical for us and our redesign of The Seaton Lane Inn is fundamentally about investing in our customers and providing them with an enhanced venue that embraces our eat, drink, sleep and explore model.

“Our investment plans to update, improve and modernise The Seaton Lane Inn, while preserving the inn’s character, will ensure the pub continues to be a beacon for hospitality and a great place to eat, drink, sleep and meet for business customers, visitors and locals alike in County Durham.”

General manager Paul Brown said: “We are looking forward to welcoming back our customers and showcasing the all-new Seaton Lane Inn. It is a tremendous facility for business and consumer guests in County Durham, serving food and drink all day, every day as well as providing high-quality accommodation.

“We offer competitive corporate rates and have a host of facilities such as free WIFI, onsite parking and proximity to the A19, Sunderland, Durham and Newcastle. We look forward to welcoming in old and new customers as we celebrate the inn’s reopening.”
