A Northumberland inn won Commercial Development of the Year at last week’s Insider Media Property Awards ceremony.

The Insider North East Property Awards 2017 celebrate the remarkable achievements of the region’s developments, recognising the most successful companies and projects over the previous 12 months.

The Commissioners Quay Inn was developed on the waterfront at Blyth and the judges felt this was a true place-making development, turning a derelict site in an area of social deprivation into a space that the community can be proud.

The venue was developed by Arch and is operated by The Inn Collection Group.

The Group’s chief executive, Keith Liddell, said: “The service we provide to residents and visitors are first class, but to be able to say we are doing this from an award-winning building is even more special.”
