North-based pub company The Inn Collection Group has completed the purchase of the 90-room Hotel St George in Harrogate as it continues to broaden its reach across Yorkshire.

The Edwardian venue, which includes The Swaledale Restaurant and six function rooms, will continue trading under the group’s ‘Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore’ pub with rooms brand before undergoing ‘careful refurbishment and remodelling’ works later in the year.

The purchase, for an undisclosed sum, follows the Alchemy-backed group’s acquisitions of Yorkshire venues The Dower House in Knaresborough, The Dean Court in York and The Ripon Spa Hotel in Ripon.

“The Hotel St George is an exciting acquisition for us as we continue to expand our customer base and imprint in Yorkshire while continuing to roll out our buy and build strategy as an operator,” says The Inn Collection Group managing director Sean Donkin.

“We have had Harrogate in our sights for a considerable time while identifying a site that is a fit with our ‘Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore’ brand. We are delighted to have completed on this superb site which will be a tremendous asset for our customers and our portfolio of inns in the best UK locations.”

The group’s portfolio of pubs with rooms in Yorkshire includes The Stables at Whitby and The King’s Head Inn at Newton under Roseberry. The company is also redeveloping Northallerton’s former police station into a 32-bedroom pub with rooms called The Northallerton Inn.

Last October it re-opened the 15th​ century coaching inn The Black Swan in Helmsley following a multi-million pound refurbishment.

It also made its first expansion into Wales in December, with the purchase of The Swallow Falls Hotel in the Snowdonia National Park.

Outside Yorkshire, The Inn Collection Group’s estate includes sites in Northumberland, the Lake District, County Durham, Tyne & Wear and Lancashire.
