The former Mutiny Bar on Sandside, which was previously The Lancaster, has been renamed The New Lancaster and undergone a revamp after being bought by new landlords Stacey Stringer and James Durham, who also own The Nag’s Head in Scalby.

Stacey said: “We’ve taken out the coffee machine on the bar and other items in there as it didn’t have an identity before. It kind of did food for kids, carvery, it did coffee, it was a jack of all trades so we’ve ripped all that out.

“We’re going to sell high-end premium beers and good wines, possibly cocktails. We’ve got palm trees in there and it’s just a modern nautical feel.”

A small mix and match menu will offer tapas-style dishes and nibbles alongside drinks.

The pub plans to open with a ticketed VIP-style launch party when coronavirus restrictions allow it to do so.
