The Tunbridge Wells Bar & Grill is located in a prime location on the High Street in the heart of this fashionable area. Following a complete transformation, our unique property is a fresh, intimate space where guests can enjoy a mid-morning coffee, a leisurely lunch, a relaxed dinner or unwind with a cocktail at the impressive bar. A state of the art retractable roof provides outdoor dining all year long, rain or shine. Ingredient provenance is key to us. We're about classic and inspired seasonal cooking, amazing steaks and brilliant cocktails to match. We only serve 100% British beef naturally reared on farms selected by us. Our chefs traveled to Memphis to learn the best barbecue techniques to bring back to our kitchens. We're cooking over charcoal on an amazing theatre grill and wood burning oven, putting a big focus on marinating, rubbing and slow cooking with our latest menu. Fantastic food and service, every time you visit us.

Good food but slow service

We went on Saturday night for a friends birthday. There was 8 of us. Our main took two hours but when it finally came it was delicious. The table next to us had three different sets of people seated before we finished our mains. I did explain that it was not very good service and they took one of... read more

I have been inspired to write my first review after a wonderful night in the 'Bar and Grill'. Upon arrival I knew i had found a treat, I was greeted by the friendly manager who explained the table maybe a little delayed. This however turned out to work in our favor as the bar area had a terrific atmosphere and... More

Went to this restaurant during my honeymoon in Tunbridge wells on the advice of a colleague, was not disappointed. From the pleasant welcome and polite introduction to our table waiter to the laid back pleasant conversation with the cocktail barman it was perfect. The starters were of beautiful presentation and taste, we were not rushed for our choice and the... More

Came here for dinner with my family and some family friends. Food was super and lovely atmosphere. Very expensive!!!! Friendly staff. Not quite sure it was worth all the money but it was a good evening.

I visited here on friday night with a friend, we shared the asian platter which was lovely, duck cooked perfectly, with fresh spring onions and cucumber - a firm favourite of mine! We had a bottle of prosecco and a cocktail each, (cocktails always lovely), however the only criticism i may have would be that the champagne that is served... More

It was J's Birthday so we drove to Tunbridge Wells for a look around the shops and a nice Birthday lunch. This is a big restaurant with outdoor seating, we sat inside at the back, due to it being a sunny day it became very warm in the restaurant. Thankfully there was not a lot of people in there so...

I have been coming here for a long time and can honestly say the service and the food is always excellent. The staff are always attentive and helpful.The steaks are to die for and wouldn't go anywhere else in Tunbridge Wells for cocktails. By far the best place for a night out.

I'm not sure why places like this exist, let alone belong in Tunbridge Wells. This restaurant lacks a certain decorum that one would expect from this spa town, and it appears to be populated with 20-30 something's who desperately need to be seen, and heard. It could, on paper be a very good restaurant and is clearly a cash cow... More

Been here a few times, for drinks, and for dinner. The last time was disappointing, especially considering what we paid. There was a group of six of us, first of all they sat us in the hideous sofa tables that they have, that no-one can actually eat from as you sink down beneath the table - still, I'm sure that...

We have been to the restaurant on several occasions and thought that perhaps our bad experiences were not typical. However our last experience was grim. We were embarrassed for our guests by the rude staff and the patchy standard of the food. The steaks, for example were universally tough. More attention should be paid to the quality of the food,...
