Description: Located in the centre of Tunbridge Wells, The Wells Kitchen offers a pub with modern decor and a comfortable atmosphere. The bar features a great selection of drinks, focused on affordable quality with a twist - the premium spirit and cocktail list has been hand crafted by two barmen with over 15 years of experience and knowledge between them, listing both classic and modern drinks as well as a selection of original recipes of their own. Upstairs is Bar Kitsch, our lounge bar open on Friday and Saturday nights till 2am. The town's funkiest bar combines relaxed areas with an upbeat feel, fantastic drinks and areas available to reserve. Our food is locally sourced and prepared fresh by our head chef, Chris Cook. It focuses on pub classics as well as modern dishes and some fantastic game and steak. We also have a lighter, grazing menu available in the pub.The venues unique twist comes with a locally sourced selection of lagers and ales on tap - no mass produced brands, just home-grown quality in a glass. The range offers something for everyone and our wide range of some of the worlds number one lagers and craft beers adds even more depth! We're more than happy to help you in the initial choice that will keep you coming back for more. Areas are available to reserve every night of the week and we're able to host anything from 10 - 150 people upstairs in Bar Kitsch or in the pub. The pub is also child friendly - we have highchairs, colouring books and crayons to keep the little ones entertained!

We have been to the Wells Kitchen twice on Sundays now and each time we have found the food to be of truly the highest order - their 100% steak burger is the best burger I have ever tasted and my uncle, who eats fish and chips at every restaurant we go to, gave his dinner the same rating. Other family members and friends have had the generous and extremely delicious roasts, from which you can choose a number of meats, and we look forward to more trips in the future.

We visited this restaurant on a wet Sunday. It was fully booked, but they gave us a table in a quiet area near the bar. The Sunday roast was excellent, with excellent beef and well cooked vegetables. My daughter had local fish and chips and that was very fresh and could not be better. The deserts were carefully prepared and all were top quality. The entrance is not attractive, but once inside it was very good. We will be returning.
