Inn-spired makeover is a hit at The Seaton Lane Inn

April 2018

The Seaton Lane Inn has reopened following a major refurbishment.

The overhaul includes a total redesign of the inn’s dining and bar area which has an outdoors-indoors theme, complete with vivid prints; pops of bright, earthy colours and accessories and a blend of contemporary and retro signature furniture and lighting. 

The addition of a bold, botanical-themed orangery complete with water feature and plant walls forms a central showstopper for customers to relax in. 

Each of the inn’s 18 en-suite bedrooms have been refurbished, with signature wallpaper, natural-coloured paneling and metallic detailing. 

In a nod to tradition, the inn’s exterior retains its white upper section, while an olive green ground floor continues the natural theme. 

Seaton resident John Wight was the first customer through the doors. He said: “It’s fantastic. I never envisaged it would look like this – it’s amazing. It’s great to be back. There’s nothing like being at your local, the staff are excellent, you can’t fault them. They are like a family. 

“It’s brilliant to have The Seaton Lane Inn back and looking so beautiful.” 

General manager Paul Brown said: “What a transformation. It is absolutely stunning. The best thing has been seeing people’s reactions when they step inside. We went to great lengths to keep the new interior a secret and the end result is spectacular with real wow-factor. 

“The investment has transformed The Seaton Lane Inn into a sophisticated, yet relaxed place you just won’t want to leave and a tremendous asset for business and consumer guests in County Durham, serving quality homemade food and drink all day, every day as well as providing high-quality, AA four-star accommodation.”

March 2018

Following a tip to toe refurbishment The Seaton Lane Inn will reopen at 12 noon on Friday April 6th. 

A major overhaul of the landmark Seaton inn is nearing completion, with customers shortly to experience the inn’s all new redesigned dining area, complete with signature furniture, contemporary lighting and fresh colour schemes.

An expansive orangery promising laid back dining and drinking will adjoin a new bar, offering a wider range of local, national and craft ales, speciality spirits, soft drinks and wines from across the globe.

Each of the inn’s en suite bedrooms has been renovated, too.

General manager Paul Brown said: "The inn is looking absolutely brilliant and we can't wait to unveil the all new Seaton Lane Inn to our customers. It will be a very exciting moment in the inn's history and we're looking forward to celebrating it with the community here in Seaton and beyond. 

Sean Donkin is managing director of The Inn Collection Group, which owns the 18-bedroom pub with rooms. He 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 dine and stay for locals, tourists and business customers in County Durham. We are looking forward to opening our doors for business once again and to show off the stunning new Seaton Lane Inn.”
