A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors

One Warwick Park

One Warwick Park hotel has opened in the Pantiles district of Tunbridge Wells, Kent, after a three-year development. The hotel offers an underground gallery to showcase local, national and international artists, and four food and beverage spaces, including the hotel's Italian L'amore restaurant, which offers an interpretation of Mediterranean small plate dining, as well as a lounge, snug and terrace.

Each individually styled bedroom has a suite of bespoke walnut furniture and heavy handmade curtains to complement the classic, neutral colour palette. The hotel also has a function room for up to 180 people in the former school house building, which retains its 19th-century timber vaults and 15ft arched windows. A double-height atrium at the heart of the hotel offers additional function space.
