The UK has seen a flood of fabulous new openings this year. Here is our top three to keep a look out for this coming season
THE CROWN INN, MINCHINHAMPTON, GLOUCESTERSHIRE
The Crown Inn, Minchinhampton, Stroud, GL6 9BN
THIS AUTUMN SEES OUR NEXT EXCITING NEW OPENING: THE CROWN. SET IN THE HEART OF THE SMALL MARKET TOWN OF MINCHINHAMPTON, THIS LOCAL PUB IS BRINGING BACK COMMUNITY, HAVING BEEN CLOSED FOR FIVE YEARS.
The historic building has been renovated to an excellent standard, with all of our signature design touches, vibe and colour. Keeping with our ethos of locally-sourced, lovingly-cooked produce, prepare for scrumptious food including a hearty grill menu, accompanied by real ale and outstanding wine, in the brand-new bar and restaurant. There will be an outdoor eating space, too, so you can soak up the sunshine.
THE HOXTON, SOUTHWARK, LONDON
THE HOXTON BRAND IS COMING TO TOWN ONCE MORE, OPENING ITS EIGHTH OUTPOST AND THIRD LONDON HOTEL THIS SEPTEMBER.
Located on the south side of Blackfriars Bridge, The Hoxton, Southwark will sit in a 14-storey new build property and feature 192 rooms that come in five signature categories: Shoebox, Snug, Cosy, Roomy and Biggy.
Expect Crittall-style windows, concrete ceilings and bare brick walls contrasting with luxury panelled headboards, leather lounge chairs and handmade glassware all curated by Ennismore Design Studio. NYC’s favourite seafood restaurant Seabird will be setting up shop on the rooftop with London’s largest oyster menu.
BUXTON CRESCENT HOTEL & SPA, DERBYSHIRE
THIS GRADE 1 LISTED BUILDING, BUXTON CRESCENT, IS ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S MOST ARCHITECTURALLY SIGNIFICANT BUILDINGS.
The property’s location is noteworthy, too: The Crescent was once the centrepiece of the Fifth Duke of Devonshire’s plans to establish a fashionable Georgian spa town in Buxton. Redeveloped at a cost of £46 million, the 79-room hotel aims to put the town back on the map.
Occupying the majority of the Crescent, the property will incorporate the splendid Assembly Rooms alongside a restaurant and two bars. Furthermore, the thermal spa, fed by mineral water from a nearby ancient spring, will come complete with a spa café.
