Good food: enjoyed the oysters and Asian starters. Main course steaks were good quality and perfectly cooked. Downside was the awful service which, although friendly enough, was well below the standard you would expect anywhere. Wine order took 3 attempts to get right and starters took an hour to arrive. Fortunately, service not included in the bill so no argument... More

I was a little turned off by the Bar & Grill last time i dined there. I remember high prices and slow service. I'm not one to complain to everyone if something isn't right but i am definitely one to boast about my perfect night out last night. I was a little hesitant about going last night but my daughter...

I have read very mixed reviews of this restaurant and am pleased to say that our experience was excellent. I was made extremely welcome on arrival and having explained that my party would be arriving at different times, I was asked whether I had a preference of where we sat -gorgeous outdoor! The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful... More

We went for lunch on a Saturday and got a table without any problem. The food was nice but it did seem a bit expensive.

I previously reviewed the Tunbridge Wells Bar and Grill in March 2012, and gave it a 5* rating. This used to be our favourite venue for a meal out in TW and was where I'd bring all our visitors, but after our recent visit, we won't be going back. Before going in most recently, we checked the menu on the... More

We had a good table and the waiter was very attentive. However the first drinks and subsequent orders took atleast 20 minutes to arrive and on one occasion a... More

I'd just returned from a trip, was exhausted and just wanted something light for dinner as I didn't have anything in. I walked into the garden, smiled at the bartender and asked him how he was, and got a blank stare and no greeting in response. So I asked for beer, and sat on a stool. I couldn't put my... More
