Description: The Tunbridge Wells Bar & Grill is located in a prime location on the High Street, in the heart of this fashionable area of Kent. Following a complete transformation, the unique property is now a fresh, intimate space where you can enjoy a mid-morning coffee, a leisurely lunch, a relaxed dinner or unwind with a cocktail at the impressive bar. Serving a prodigious menu of eclectic choices from around the world, the restaurant offers a great tasting experience. All dishes, even the bread and ice cream, are freshly prepared and made on the premises by the restaurant's chefs from carefully sourced ingredients. The restaurant also boasts an open kitchen where you can watch the chefs in action at the wood stone oven, and with its warm Mediterranean feel, the south-facing terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a pre or post-dinner drink as well as delicious food al fresco.

We recently held a themed summer party for 100+ people in the decked courtyard at the Bar & Grill. The outdoor courtyard is a wonderful setting for a summer party and it helped that it was one of the hottest days of the year! The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious (we had a selection of... More

I visited on Monday 21st July with 3 work colleagues for a celebratory meal. We had booked a table, which we were seated at promptly and given time to decide on our drink and food orders. Once our orders were taken and we had received our drinks, we proceeded to wait 45 minutes for our main courses to arrive. Having... More

I really wanted to check out bar and grill but have heard so many mixed reviews I've been putting it off. I decided to go with my boyfriend quite early on a weds night, there were a few people there mostly drinking though as it was quite early still. It was a hot day so we asked for a table... More

We were looking for an alternative to hiring a private venue that would provide a great ambience and flexibility to our requirements. The event was an amazing success with great food and drinks and both the General... More

Visited this bar restaurant with three friends for dinner and drinks. Couple of drinks made wrong due to bar staff not being attentive, but our main complaint was the over-charging for the wine and asking for more than the price shown on the various wine menus displayed on the bar, which I believe is actually illegal. We all had large... More

I have been going to the bar and grill on and off for over three years. I love the atmosphere and bar staff so popping in for the odd cocktail with friends is always a pleasure. However, the dining experience has been gradually getting worse and it would seem that I am not alone in this opinion. Management would be... More
