Tourism award winner takes over at The Seaton Lane Inn
The General Manager of the North East Tourism Pub of the Year has been announced as the new person in charge at The Seaton Lane Inn.
Peter O’Brien is the new General Manager and will be operating The Seaton Lane Inn working alongside all of the existing members of staff. Peter led The Bamburgh Castle Inn, part of the Inn Collection Group, to victory in the recent North East Tourism Awards as it won the Gold award for Tourism Pub of the Year.
The Seaton Lane Inn General Manager, Peter O’Brien said: “I am really looking forward to working with all the staff at The Seaton Lane Inn. It already has a great mix of local, leisure and business customers attracted by its homely pub atmosphere, good value bed and breakfast accommodation and excellent food that is served all-day, every day. The success we had at The Bamburgh Castle Inn was a real team effort, and that is what I’d like to be able to bring to The Seaton Lane Inn.”
The Seaton Lane Inn joined The Inn Collection Group family of north east pubs with rooms earlier this year.

In addition to The Bamburgh Castle Inn winning Gold, a second of the groups Inns, The Hog’s Head Inn in Alnwick, also won silver in the Access for All category the North East Tourism Awards.
The Inn Collection Group chief executive, Keith Liddell, said: “The Seaton Lane Inn is a well-appointed, well-run inn which has been able to slot seamlessly into The Inn Collection Group portfolio with its eat, drink, sleep and explore model. We are looking forward to developing this Inn further now that Peter has joined the team. It is tremendous that our inns are performing so well and we are hoping that 2016 will be an exciting year for The Seaton Lane Inn.”
