O'Callaghan Hotel Group's Tamburlaine hotel to open in April

Dublin-based O'Callaghan Hotel Group's first UK hotel, the Tamburlaine, is set to open in Cambridge on 1 April.

The 155-room hotel will be situated on Station Road, which is close to the railway station as well as the city centre.

The ground floor will house four food and drink operations including: the Brasserie; the Cocktail Bar; the Garden Room; and the Steam deli.

The Brasserie will serve breakfast, then lunch and dinner in an informal setting, featuring an open kitchen and floor to ceiling windows. Locally sourced and seasonal dishes include: grilled breast of wood pigeon, puy lentils, pickled girolles and parsnip; free-range Blythburgh pork, heritage carrots, Aspall cider jus; rare breed beef rib eye, Barnsley chop and Norfolk Black chicken supreme.

The cocktail bar will serve a range of spirits, beers and wines as well as cocktails which include: King's College Spritz; Attenborough's Legacy; and Cambridge Sour.

The Garden Room will serve afternoon tea, champagne and cocktails. It will be decorated in a Colonial style and filled with fresh foliage.

Steam will offer salads, sandwiches, yoghurts and fruit pots during the day, while in the evening it will transform in to a wine bar serving wines by the glass accompanied by charcuterie and cheese plates.

All of the kitchens will be overseen by executive chef Alan Dann. Dann's past experience includes top restaurants such as the Waterside Inn, Bray; Restaurant Pierre Gagnaire in Paris; and Restaurant Michel Guérard, Eugénie-les-Bains, France.

Tamburlaine's communal areas have been designed by Bryan O'Sullivan Studio, based in Shoreditch, London.

The hotel will have five conference rooms available for hire next to the library, which can also be hired for drinks receptions and events.

General manager Zac Pearse, formerly of Malmaison in Charterhouse Square, London, said: "We are very excited to be opening this significant and stunning hotel in Cambridge. We're looking forward to welcoming the residents of Cambridge as well as the city's many visitors. We want locals to see Tamburlaine as their hotel; a place where they can come for a special dinner with family, cocktails or afternoon tea with friends, or grab a coffee and sandwich from our deli on their way to the station. Tamburlaine is a vibrant place for everyone to enjoy!"

The O'Callaghan Hotel Group was founded in 1990 when the first hotel, the MontClare opened in Dublin.

The group now operates four hotels in Dublin: the Davenport; the Alexander; the Stephen's Green.

It launched its first international hotel, the Eliott in Gibraltar in 1996 followed by the Annapolis in Maryland, USA.
