The beautifully designed University Arms Hotel officially opened to the public earlier this month following an extensive renovation - and in it is housed the exquisite Parker’s Tavern restaurant.

Having first opened in 1834, the transformation of the hotel building is the result of a collaboration between architect John Simpson and interior designer Martin Brudnizki. The 192-room hotel has undergone a major refurbishment costing more than £80million.

The restaurant’s chef Tristan Welch has worked under Michel Roux Jr and headed Gordon Ramsay’s Pétrus in London. Parker’s Tavern caters for 132 covers and there is a 61-seat bar, as well as another 30 seats located in the building’s library.
