The Seafood Pub Company has grown its portfolio to 10 after acquiring the Alma Inn in Lanshawbridge, Lancashire. 

The pub company, which is aiming to grow its estate to 20, said it would not be making 'drastic' changes to the rural coaching house, which includes nine letting bedrooms. 

"We simply want to enhance and improve the wonderful business that is already in place," said Seafood Pub Company managing director Jocelyn Neve. 

“We want to reassure customers that all bookings already in the diary will still take place, with the exact team they booked them with; we’re really looking forward to hosting a number of weddings, functions and events, alongside the regular dining service, ensuring guests have an amazing experience all round.”

The Seafood Pub Company's ninth site, the Forest Inn in Fence, Lancashire, is due to open next month following an extensive refurbishment. 

Earlier this month, the company, founded in 2010 by Neve, announced it had secured £18m of funding​ from Penta Capital to aid expansion. 

The business, based in the North of England, also plans to create a development kitchen with the funding to help nurture talent for its growing business.
