Leading northern pubco The Inn Collection Group has relocated its head office to larger premises to accommodate ongoing growth across its operations.
The Inn Collection Group has moved its 60-strong head office and central reservations team into new premises at Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s Quorum Park as the award-winning pub firm continues to expand rapidly.
The northern operator – which employs over 800 staff – is credited with building a new gold standard of modern inn groups with its Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore food-driven pubs with accommodation concept. Upgrading into larger, new premises in Newcastle-upon-Tyne will pave the way for the pubco’s continued growth as it expands its portfolio of sites across the north of England and North Wales.
Managing director of The Inn Collection Group Sean Donkin said: “Our relocation marks a whole new chapter for The Inn Collection Group’s development. It comes following an exceptionally dynamic period for the company, with the recent opening of The Northallerton Inn in North Yorkshire, four acquisitions – including our first site in Wales – and new ownership structure with The Harris Family Trusts.
“Upgrading into larger, new premises will create a fantastic working environment for our existing central team while futureproofing us for staff growth as we continue to execute expansion plans.”
Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents’ group managing director Neil Hart lead the acquisition to gain the new office space on behalf of The Inn Collection Group. He said: “It is always a pleasure to work with The Inn Collection Group and we are delighted to have been involved in the expansion of their main offices. The organisation has seen rapid growth within the last few years and a bigger office was just the next piece in the puzzle for this ambitious company. The Inn Collection Group have showcases their commitment to the team by investing in more spacious offices which will create a productive, collaborative and inspiring environment for its current head office team as they continue to drive the company forward.”
The Inn Collection Group’s people director Liz Robertson said: “We are really excited to be investing in an exceptional work space for our team to flourish and develop, with the flexibility to take on more staff as we grow. The Park is incredible with outstanding aspects our team can benefit from, including outside sports areas, state-of-the-art gym, social events and eateries.
“For the company there are so many facilities such as large training spaces with the ability to have large groups together and great outdoor spaces for socialising.”
The Inn Collection Group launched its Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore model in 2006 from its Northumberland headquarters in Cawledge Park, Alnwick, Northumberland. It currently has 31 freehold sites in prime touristic locations across the North of England and North Wales including Northumberland, the Lake District, Yorkshire and Tyne and Wear.
The relocation and office expansion will support and centralise the group’s continued ‘buy and build’ growth strategy as it continues to increase its customer base across the region and beyond its North East heartland.
In addition to new build sites, The Inn Collection Group specialises in the acquisition and enhancement of under-invested sites.
Alongside its high-performing trading venues, The Inn Collection Group is carrying out major investment and redevelopment works at several sites ahead of re-openings including The Park in North Tyneside, The Ripon Spa in Ripon, North Yorkshire and The Swan at Grasmere, Cumbria.
The Inn Collection Group’s new office is located at Q5, Quorum Park, Benton, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
