The Poet


Brenchley and Horsmonden, Tunbridge Wells, 20-30£
29/08/2018: My lovely wife decided to treat me for my birthday, so we popped over for dinner on a Thursday evening - the Taster Menu day.
29/08/2018: Family outing to the Poets Saturday lunchtime BBQ was a great success for many reasons. Sun shining, staff very friendly and excellent good value food served in the garden. Would highly recommend this venue for BBQ and indoor lunch’s. Dog came with us for the BBQ and loved his titbits from the food on offer.

The Spice


St James', Tunbridge Wells
31/08/2018: We've been before and it's gone from good to great. This time I was impressed with how succulent the chicken is. The rice which came from the set menu for 2 is fragrant, some of the best around for years.
29/08/2018: First time I ordered a takeaway from the Spice and I am sure I will do it again. Portions are generous, good quality and reasonable price. The only improvement I would suggest is to increase the amount of meat in the lamb masala dish, although the sauce is absolutely delicious i would have liked a bit more lamb there.

Toad Rock Retreat


Rusthall, Tunbridge Wells
10/08/2018: Stumbled upon this pub on trip advisor and thought we would give it a try as we were in Tunbridge wells celebrating our first anniversary. Was not disappointed, staff really friendly and the location was perfect. After a couple of drinks we were told that food wouldn't be ready until about 7ish which wasn't a problem at all and was well worth the wait! Both had the burger which I would recommend and I had an Eton Mess for dessert again was really tasty.
06/08/2018: We went to this local pub for some (posh) pub grub. All the staff were very chatty and friendly and there was a nice atmosphere. I live in the area and it's only one of the very few pubs in the area that I would recommend for food, price and service. The Sunday lunches that we ordered (vegetarian and one of the meat varieties) were delicious. The portions are very big and the restaurant area is lovely.

Rendez-Vous


St James', Tunbridge Wells, >100£
10/08/2018: Ate here for the first time and was very impressed with this establishment. In true French style, the main menu is small but had the classics, and the specials board was varied with modern dishes. The quality of the food was excellent and it is very good value for money. Love the candles at each table, it always create a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The upstairs toilets were clean and elegantly decorated. This is a charming restaurant.
03/08/2018: Yet another fabulous lunch, the brill was brill, thoroughly enjoyed it!! Never disappointed here, going again on Saturday, it's our favourite place!!

Sofias Colombian Kitchen


Park, Tunbridge Wells
19/08/2018: We have eaten at Sofia’s house on several occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the food. When we wanted to have a party to celebrate our birthdays we remembered the delicious and tasty food Sofia and Kitt cook from scratch. Not wanting to go through the stressful process of catering for over 20 guests, we decided that the Colombian food Sofia and Kitt cook would be ideal to share with our family and friends. Sofia and Kitt arrived promptly and organised everything; food, decorations, table cloths, music etc. Sofia is an excellent ‘host’ which ensures everyone has a thoroughly enjoyable evening. It is not possible to fully describe the wonderful smell and taste of the food. Delicious pork ribs, sausages, chicken, shredded beef and pork, superb dips, yams, new potatoes in a tasty tomato sauce, rice, etc etc etc. Plenty of superb food, beautifully presented and served, with Sofia and Kitt ensuring the event was a success. Will definitely use again.
05/08/2018: Ordered a load of takeaway food from Sofia for my partners birthday BBQ, and it was absolutely delicious! I ordered empanadas - both beef and veggie options, coconut rice, patacones, beans and a Colombian style salsa (called ají). Sofia packed it all up nicely, so it was easy to dish out.

Don Giovanni Ristorante Italiano


Park, Tunbridge Wells
17/08/2018: When I say unhurried, I don’t mean slow service. The service was really good. No, what I mean is that we didn’t feel rushed. When we arrived, we were immediately asked what we would like to drink. I like the taste of Moretti beer but didn’t realise that there is more than one type. I sampled both to ensure that I would know the difference in future. We also had a reasonably priced bottle of Italian wine which was very pleasant indeed.
27/07/2018: What a fantastic restaurant. Our second visit and we were still impressed. Even in Italy it would be hard to beat this restaurant. The food, the staff - nothing could be faulted.

The Black Horse


Pembury, Tunbridge Wells
23/07/2018: This was recommended by friends who live locally. We went for a family celebration, 5 adults 1 teen. The pub specialises is seafood but does a renowned carvery and good selection of steak. I can honestly say I've never sat and looked at a menu without knowing what to choose. Everyone in the party chose a different dish, most are the chefs variation on a classic, as each dish came out together, piping hot and absolutely delicious. I'm definitely going back.
11/06/2018: Wonderful place to eat/drink/socialise. Friendly. Food amazing highly recommended. Few steps if going outside to patio area. Parking has to be near by. But well worth the trip.

Red Lion


Rusthall, Tunbridge Wells
21/08/2018: We decided to give the Red Lion a try having read it was under new management. It was the right call. The place is transformed. A welcoming host: great selection of artisan gins and an excellent wine list specifically chosen to accompany the excellent Thai food. The garden was a lovely place to have an aperitif. We will definitely go back.
19/08/2018: At last Rusthall has a great pub for everyone to enjoy! Thank you. The food (Thai) is lovely and good value. The pub also serves a variety of gins (reasonably priced) and the manager is most welcoming. I have been back with family and friends since my first visit. You will not be disappointed.

Kai's Kitchen


Park, Tunbridge Wells
05/09/2018: My husband and I popped in yesterday for a quick lunch. It’s an unassuming place from the outside, but the food lived up to the reviews on here! I had Pad Thai which was delicious. Service very quick, and restaurant was clean. Definitely recommend!
03/09/2018: My husband and I love this small casual Thai eatery at the bottom of Tunbridge Wells by Hoopers. We brought our friends from Yorkshire with us and they really enjoyed it too. I had a lovely Massaman Curry and my husband always asks them to cook him a seafood curry every time we go he says it is delicious. The staff are very accommodating.

Juliet's Cafe


Pantiles and St Mark's, Tunbridge Wells
04/09/2018: I have been here with my family and friends hundreds of times! I love it!! The food is delicious and you are welcomed warmly and treated like royalty. I have no bad words to say about this cafe it’s perfect!!!
30/08/2018: A very popular cafe and there is usually a small queue for a table. The cakes on offer are amazing and the coffee is good too. Cafe offers a variety of food which looks fresh and tasty. Not sure if you can reserve a seat in advance but probably recommended if you can. A great independent cafe which I highly recommend!

Fuggles Beer Cafe


Culverden, Tunbridge Wells
27/08/2018: Have been a couple of times and like the place. Almost overwhelming selection of beers and ciders but the staff are very helpful if you're indecisive.
25/08/2018: Brilliant pub to meet friends in and to go on a date! Lovely cosy atmosphere. Boardgames available to play. Friendly vibe. They have a huge range of beers and wines! Love it!

Apicius


Benenden and Cranbrook, Tunbridge Wells, >100£
06/08/2018: Very enjoyable dinner, excellent food and wine. We were lucky to get in at fairly short notice. We will be back and sooner than last time!
31/07/2018: We regularly eat in Kent’s best known restaurants – The Sportsman, The West House, etc. – but the cooking at Apicius beats them all hands down. This shouldn’t be surprising given it held a Michelin star until temporarily closing in 2015.

The Mount Edgcumbe


Broadwater, Tunbridge Wells, 30-45£
27/08/2018: First visit for myself and wife although several members of our family are regular customers. This was a family celebration. Delightful staff, excellent food. Drinks a little on the pricy side. Will be going back as a twosome before long.
23/08/2018: Just popped in for pint of Harvey’s best bitter and flabbergasted they charge £4.20 when other pubs in area charge £3.90-£4.00. How can they justify this?

The Old Fishmarket - Champagne & Seafood Bar


Pantiles and St Mark's, Tunbridge Wells, 60-100£
10/08/2018: There’s very little to say, it’s incredible shell fish cooked by chefs who have trained for the precise purpose of cooking incredible shell fish.
08/08/2018: We visited Sankey’s last Saturday as a belated birthday celebration. It never disappoints and as usual the customer service was impeccable! I don’t know anywhere else where you can interact with the chefs whilst they are cooking and where the host takes time to ensure you’re happy! We had a selection of the cooked oysters to start and I then had the shellfish bisque which was delicious - highly recommend! My mum had the scallops (see photo) which were also lovely! We had crab and 2 lots of mussels for mains! Only 1 very small comment would be that it would be nice if the mussels came with a side of bread but really only a small point! Delicious food and wine as always! Many thanks to all the staff!
