Very long waiting times!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Starter was lovely! Yet the drinks took 20-30 mins to come out each round. We ordered main meals and we waited for 1hr 15 mins before deciding to leave as we got a bit fed up! Managed to get 50% of the drinks and starters we had but think the staff couldn’t keep up with the demand.

Food average and expensive, busy.
Feb 2019 • Friends
Booked a group of people on a sat night for 7.30. They were very busy, running very behind, we finally got our food about 9pm...
The food is average, not amazing, but quite expensive for what it is.

The staff were lovely, polite and friendly, but rushed off their feet.

There were a lot of Birthdays being celebrated, which involves the staff running around with a loud triangle being very noisy!

Birthday meal
Apr 2018 • Friends
Booked a table for 10 for our sons 21st birthday, we were seated quickly and our waiters were friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. The drinks were delivered quickly and as you can imagine were enjoyed throughly! We all ordered different items from the menu, and when these arrived they all looked really well presented. We had arranged for the birthday boy to have the birthday belly buster as a surprise, and I have to say a massive well done to the waiters and waitresses who brought this out with the bells ringing! All in all a very good evening was had by all

Getting pricey but good
Dec 2017 • Couples
Came as we were wanting bbq style food. Drinks are getting expensive compared to the pubs. Good shared starter inc mini ribs, garlic bread and chicken strips. Both of us decided for burgers partly due to most steaks being nearly 20quid starting. Burgers and fries were good too. Served well. Will come back but more rarely due to prices.

Expensive and very average

For what should be a cheap and cheerful, ok maybe not cheap, but at least good value, it isn’t. The food is what you expect and ok..ish, but it was expensive. You can eat better for less.

Good atmosphere and good food.
Oct 2017
Quirky western themed bar and restaurant, with the emphasis on Americana on both the menu and bar stock.
Food was well cooked and presented at a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and helpful.
My only criticism is that they only had a selection of lagers on the bar and personally I am a bitter man.

Very good
Oct 2016 • Family
Smith & Western is our favourite family restaurant and Tunbridge Wells was the only one we hadn't been to. What I love about S&W is that each one is individual and TW did not disappoint! Lovely staff dealing with our table of 12 including some rather rowdy and messy pre-teens. The food as always was spot on for everyone. Just a slight loss on a fifth star there as my chilli was not quite as piping hot as I would like and the initial drinks order was more than a little slow, but all in all a positive visit with a definite return if I were in that neck of the woods again!

Let down :(
Feb 2016 • Couples
Such a let down, been smith and western 5 times and feel the food has been getting worse each time. Went mid week on a cold day and the place was warm! Good start since it was pretty empty. Service is always friendly and gave us tortillas.
Drinks taken, no mention to it being happy hour ( would have thought they would push this).
Starter came and as you can see the filled skins were huge, but of average quality. Not one to complain about having too much but it was a lot for a starter. Prawns were nice.
Mains came and instead of a chicken burger I got beef, wasn't worth waiting for another to be cooked so tucked in. What an let down. The meat was horrid, the BBQ sauce was sickening. The fries were average. The sweet potato fries were nice but just basically sugar sticks!
The Fajitas were average too, the chicken was tiny and mainly just a plate of onion and peppers. The chicken meat was grissley.
Overall you wouldn't mind if it was average price but at £7/8 for starters and £13/14 for mains it was poor.

Won't be coming back which is a real shame

Lunch
Oct 2015 • Couples
This was our first time here and I must say the food was outstanding, there was plenty of it and it was well worth the money. The place it's self is welcoming and fun and the decoration is perfect for its cuisine. Waitresses were friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend.
