Offshore – The Brand New St. Anne’s Hotel, Restaurant & Bar Is Now Fully Open

Two of St. Anne’s long established former hotels – The Lindum and The Carlton, both on South Promenade – are now once again open to the public as the brand new totally revamped 98-room inn named Offshore. The 98 totally renovated bedrooms available in Offshore include premium sea-view rooms, dog-friendly rooms and accessible accommodation. But Offshore is not only a hotel, but also a first-rate restaurant and bar. A Spokesperson for Offshore adds, ‘The completely re-imagined bar area and large outdoor seating terrace offer all-day, everyday laid-back dining and delicious drinks and is the perfect spot from which to unwind and enjoy the views across the Fylde coast.’

The duo of sites that make up Offshore were acquired by The Inn Collection Group in November 2020 and May 2021 respectively, with planning permission for the project granted in March last year.

Offshore, which is the Group’s largest property by number of bedrooms, was declared open by Lytham St. Anne’s actor Jonas Armstrong with a ceremonial ribbon cutting (see photograph below). Offshore boasts 250 covers inside, plus a large outdoor seating terrace.

Enabling Offshore to meet the demands of a pub-style food menu, a fully reworked kitchen has also been delivered, with state-of-the-art equipment installed, including a frying range allowing it to serve chip shop favourites with the traditional taste.

The revamp has also seen the full refurbishment of all bedrooms, along with additional inventory created by the construction of a ground floor extension.

Michael Coulthard, head of projects at The Inn Collection Group, commented: ‘It’s fantastic to have Offshore back and reopening. It has been an extensive project to bring the site back to life. It has taken time to complete, but we are delighted with the results and look forward to having it serving the town of Lytham St Anne’s.

The transformation from hotel to pub has seen a lot of work carried out in changing the downstairs spaces and kitchen areas, but there has been some reconfiguration of the rooms side too, with additional ones created and a new lift installation in the old Lindum side of the building.

The whole thing has been pretty much rebuilt with the exception of some of the structure and that has brought areas that had become almost redundant back into use for things like staff rooms and food preparation. That’s an exciting part of the job and I’m looking forward to seeing Offshore enjoy a new lease of life.’
