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.

Very impressed considering it's a chain

Went in by accident, as planned a tapas lunch with a friend and they were closed. Totally surprised by terrace area, stunning, if a little hot for a hormonal woman! We had surf and turf to share lobster steak and chips with hollandaise and pepper sauce on the side. Delicious. My only issue would... read more

Was sceptical on wether to go after reading some reviews, which are totally unfounded and untrue. The food was amazing. Service was fabulous, we were looked after by Chris who was very attentive and have no complaints about the service. Made my daughters pink spritzer just perfect. The steak was one of the best I have ever tasted, lobster was... More

My boyfriend is obsessed with this restaurant, he loves the steak and honestly now won't eat steak anywhere else! The chicken skewer starter is incredible too. The outdoor-esque setting is beautiful as well and makes you feel as though you're on holiday. We love this place!

I have been here twice in the past six months and would not hesitate going back. On my first visit me and my boyfriend shared two platters which were very very big - could not even manage a whole platter between us. The variety was great and there was something for both of us (I am very fussy but enjoyed... More

Just returned from a Saturday night meal out. Service was brilliant: we asked to move tables as first choice was very drafty (outside door open) - no problems. Food was great, ranging from Fish&Chips to steak, crispy duck to salmon. All wonderful. BUT unfortunately was the music so loud, it really was unbearable. We spent 2 1/5 hours in there... More

We heard through a friend that the Bedford was once again serving food so popped down there on a Sunday afternoon to try it out. After grabbing a more than comfortable seat, we placed our order for 4 Sunday roasts. Within a short time the food was on our table and we were tucking in. Now as an avid foodie... More

Having visited a few times and being impressed by this 5 style looking place. I was suprised to find out this is a chain, because you would never no. The service is great. A little slow.

This restaurant has great food and service. We did have a mistake made with our order but this was put right very quickly and desserts offered free. The staff were attentive and overall a great dining experience. The only thing holding it back from 5 stars imho is the loud music. As this is a bar & grill there was... 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.
