A planning application for improvement works at the Black Swan Inn was recently approved by Northumberland County Council.
The pub, on Union Street, was recently taken over by Michael Dawson and Chico Gomes, who also own the Craster Arms and Saltwater Cafe in Beadnell.
Part of the plan by Neil Wilson Design is to extend into the existing open area/lean-to roofed courtyard space, enclosing the structure to provide year round seating.
Efforts will also be made to maximise views across the harbour, while the bar will be extended to facilitate a bespoke cocktail menu.
There will also be an extended kitchen fully fitted with new equipment and extraction with a higher level of noise and odour control.
The scheme will create four additional full-time and up to six more seasonal jobs.
