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.

10 year anniversary

My husband and I decided to eat here on our 10 year anniversary trip to Tunbridge awells. We booked a table at the back. The heaters were really hot initially but the temperature seemed to even out. There was a high number of staff on with managers to each section. Service was good and friendly... read more

Took some friends from Cornwall on a Friday night and had a great meal in a really pleasant environment sitting in the back/Grill area. Really lively place and certainly one of Tunbridge Wells most popular venues and deservedly so.

We're usually fans of the Bar and Grill, but a really poor experience last night. We went there for a drink at around 10.00pm. Ordered two glasses of Pinot Grigio white wine for £15. The first glasses were tepid (the same temperature as the bar). We complained and were given two more glasses of wine. These were also tepid (not... More

Service here was really good - yes by a young staff but I thought they did pretty well. The lady at the door kindly swapped us to a table in the outside area even though it was fully booked when I told her it was my son's 21st. He prefers it there as it's more buzzy. The cocktails were great... More

Haven't eaten here for some time and was pleasantly surprised by the covered outside area at the back of the main restaurant. Both food and drink were excellent with good service and atmosphere. Prices are in line with other similar quality restaurants in the area.

The food was great, there were 7 of us for dinner and we all had different mains and deserts which were all nice. If you are very hungry go for the full rack of ribs. If you are going to sit out the back under the retractable roof then make sure you are away from the speakers. The staff are... More
