Pub Refurbishment Opportunity!

Just off the heart of Amble on Lime Street is The Schooner Inn, your cosy spot near the bustling Harbour and Marina. What makes us stand out? Our expansive sunken walled garden offers a peaceful escape, with easy access to scenic walks along the Harbour and town outskirts. With a surge of new housing and a steady flow of tourists during peak seasons, we aim to welcome a diverse mix of locals and visitors, including those with a taste for quality.

Elevate Your Investment: Witness the Transformation

With approximately 4,700 adults within a 20-minute stroll and a lively local scene, The Schooner Inn is a great opportunity. It will offer a premium experience complete with a large beer garden, great food, and seven inviting letting rooms. The transformation from a traditional pub to a modern Premium Local hotspot will undoubtedly make it a go-to destination, especially during the warmer months. We're seeking an enthusiastic operator with a knack for hospitality, food, and events to take the reins and lead The Schooner Inn to new heights.
