A leading North East hospitality and pub company is in talks about becoming the operator of a new hotel and restaurant in Amble.

The Inn Collection Group (ICG), whose portfolio includes The Hog’s Head Inn, at Alnwick, is eyeing up the chance to run the venue, which is set to be built on an undeveloped site within Coquet Enterprise Park, after planning approval was granted earlier this year.

A spokeswoman for ICG said: “We can confirm that we are currently involved in legal negotiations with regard to this. We hope to be able to make an announcement later this week that will trigger further details about the Amble inn and our offering.”
