Only in RTW for the weekend with friends so used TripAdvisor to find a suitable location for lunch. We turned up without booking, which is recommended, but as we were not in a hurry we had drinks in the 'cave snug' before enjoying a great lunch. Very big portions and very good value. Great staff and great food.

I lived in Tunbridge Wells for 13 years but never knew about The Mount Edgcumbe. Having recently met up with an old friend we wanted something high quality but unpretentious and relaxed. The Mount Edgcumbe fitted the bill perfectly. Warm, cosy, smart and the food and service is excellent. Now I have found this place we will be back again... More

We booked a table for 8 for our work Christmas Lunch on a Friday at the Mount Edgcumbe. Although I have lived in Tunbridge Wells my whole life I have never been here before but will certainly be going back! We all met for a drink before our meal in the amazing, cozy "cave" which was lit by pretty fairy... More

Found the Mt Edgecumbe whilst looking for a nice quiet place to have a meal for one whilst on business in TWells. At first glance it's an odd looking place, it doesn't really look like a pub or restaurant from the outside but once inside it has a very warm traditional feel. Lots of nooks and crannies to enjoy a... More

Funnily enough I went here for my birthday the year before and enjoyed both visits. The food was excellent and the service pretty good. It's a lovely building too and there's a nice outdoor area for those sunny days when they show their faces. Nice place

A lovely setting and nice decor internally. The menu is small but good. Waiter/ess service was excellent. Food was really delicious, good quality and plenty of it. We went with friends, there were six of us. When we asked the staff to turn the table round so that we could be seated differently they were very obliging and did it... More

Often Christmas parties for a group are a disappointment as cooking for large numbers seems to foil the chef. However last night over 30 of us had our Christmas party and not only was the food very good, the staff were absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough to help plus the festive decorations were most attractive. We all left with... More
