More Information

The Coach is in the village of Lesbury, a picturesque Northumberland village with great nearby walks and access to the coast. It is situated 45 minutes by car to the northeast of Newcastle. The Alnmouth railway station, on the East Coast mainline is one mile away. In the village, there are no other village pubs, but there are some mainstream competitors in Alnmouth.

A major refurbishment will transform the Coach into a premium local pub. Redecorations throughout the interior trading spaces will breathe a new lease of life into this pub.  The kitchen will be remodelled and re-fitted to make way for an exciting new food offer. There will also be two new dining areas and a snug. The popular beer garden will be rejuvenated, providing a lot of additional covers. The pubs frontage will receive a major overhaul, with new signage and lighting. This will amplify the pubs kerb appeal and make it stand out to passing trade. 

The planned refurbishment will create an all-new offer and feel to the pub. These changes as well as the fabulous garden, and extended kitchen, will give the pub the ability to appeal to a broad spectrum of consumers who want to meet friends for a drink or to dine throughout the year. With 66 covers internally and 80 externally, this pub has bags of potential. All we are looking for is the right operator.

The newly refurbished Coach Inn will appeal to:

  • Local couples and friends wanting to enjoy a casual drink or premium pub food.
  • Older couples and friends looking for a lunchtime treat and a venue for special occasions.
