A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors
Two eco-friendly artists are the masterminds behind the interiors. The Trees of Time are silhouettes created by British designer-maker Stephanie Cole, whose work explores nature and its shapes and patterns. The Bird of Prey is created from recycled shopping trolleys and is by ethical artist Ptolemy Erlington. In fact, most of the furniture is made from recycled materials and even the bar uses reclaimed wood.
