The new King’s Lodge Inn will take on additional catering and hospitality staff, boosting its workforce to 180.
Sean Donkin from The Inn Collection Group, said: “We are very pleased to be opening our first city Inn.
“We have safeguarded the jobs of those staff employed in former hotel, however our plans to develop the site mean we need to recruit more talented hospitality people for both the kitchen and front of house areas, and would ask anyone interested in working for The Inn Collection Group at the new King’s Lodge Inn, to contact us as soon as possible”.
The refurbishment will create two additional guest bedrooms, as well as expanding the current separate restaurant which become an integral part of the inn.
The King’s Lodge Inn is now part of the Inn Collection Group family, which manages a collection of pubs with rooms across the North East.
