The Seabirds is a large detached traditional pub, located in the coastal area of Bridlington. This seaside family friendly pub is situated on the main road with nearby shops, less than two miles from the centre of Bridlington town centre and around half a mile from North Beach.  The pub is located within easy walking distance of a large number of caravan sites and B&B guest houses. Bridlington benefits from having a railway station. It is located on the Yorkshire Coast Line and is operated by Northern who provide all passenger train services.

Pub Layout

The trading is split into two rooms by a central round bar serving both rooms. The front room on entering the building is the bar area, with the pool table, dartboard and seating for around 30 guests. To the rear of the property sits the largest room which has tables and seating for up to 70. There is a large commercial catering kitchen, storage space and basement level beer cellar and good sized toilets. Externally there is a large carpark for 18+ cars, a decked drinking area to the rear of the building with grassed area, along with several benches to the front of the building.

The full refurbishment scheme will include complete external redecoration and signage along with works to a new terrace seating area with festoon lighting. Internally there will be full redecoration with new fixtures & fittings, refurbishment of the bar servery and back bar areas, new carvery unit, works to the toilet areas and new bi-fold doors leading out to the new terrace area.


Trading Style

The planned renovation will give the pub a fresh new look, and a real “all-round” offer. The bar area will lend itself to pub games and live sports coverage, with the lounge offering a great space for relaxed drinking and dining. Regular local trade will be boosted by seasonal visitors to the area and regular entertainment, events and a strong food offer will be well-received by the community.
