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.

Bar would have been fine if it wasn't for the 5 ageing rockers who thought that any female with a pulse was fair game! Food average but hugely over priced if you sit in the back make sure you take sun glasses and sun cream as the outside heaters are fierce and we had to ask for them to be... More

Near the station with a varied menu we used this for a family supper. The food came quickly and the rack of ribs went down well with our 8 year old son. Worth a visit.

I love this place for a quick snifter before the pantiles and the food is also excellent. Sitting outside in the big courtyard during the summer and the leather sofas around the bar is always a great idea. The outdoor barbeque is also top of the range and one night we had the chateaubriand which was amazeballs. The macaroons are... More

Currently my favourite restaurant. I love the atmosphere and the service. The menu is good fun too. Eaten here many times this year and have been very pleased each time

Like other reviews, we've had mixed experiences here over the years, mainly dreadful service and the fact that fries usually come with the dessert rather than the main course! Food is great though and our recent trip there was excellent - much improved service and a Steak Diane to die for. Usually like to sit 'outside' too where you can... More

Have been to Bar and Grill several times as it is very local to be. Often thought service slow, but last visit it was extremely poor. We were a party of 15, celebrating my birthday and all booked in advance. At first it was so difficult to get served at the bar most of my guests ended up without a... More

Have had mixed experiencea at TWB&G over the years but the last time out it was superb. Really great atmosphere - love what they have done at the back with the outdoor heaters. Service was a bit slow but food was great and they have finally managed to cater for GF which we have always struggled with in the past.... More

Always a great vibe in the Bar & Grill, the food lives up to the billing too. Best to sit 'outside' which is a courtyard with a fully retractable roof and heating. The stock cocktails are ok but if you chat to the barman you can get them to go off piste - I had a great Old Fashioned. Stand... More

A very pleasant bar and restaurant just up the hill from Tunbridge Wells station. We went there on a Saturday lunchtime and it was very quiet. We sat upstairs and the waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. They had a very reasonably priced lunchtime menu. I had an excellent minute steak and my wife enjoyed her burger. A nice place...

I have loved the TW Bar and Grill ever since it opened. However, service is now very slow ( certainly not due to being full, restaurant was vey empty when I was there) Staff are lovely people, but really needed to be better trained. My fish was delicious, but chips arrived cold and were pretty horrible. Had to ask 3... More
