“Food and service second to none.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went there again for lunch on Monday 22/7/13.
Nevill Crest And Gun is located halfway between the delightful historic town of Tunbridge wells and crowborough.
As usual,they served the highest standard of cuisine using the freshest,locally sourced ingredients.The wine wasn't bad either.
The menue was extensive with a wide range of unique and traditional dishes.
The service was perfect.Since our last visit the very capable management team have improved the service by making the outside tables waiter service and you could run a tap just by giving your name.This is a civilised way of operating by showing a complete trust in your customers.
One noticeable member of staff was the lovely Georgia,she was truly in charge of all the outside tables.
We could easily see ourselves returning time and again to dine out especially on summer evenings.

“NEVILL CREST AND GUN AND NEVILL BULL ... SOMETHING IN THE NAME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Having visited its namesake, the Nevill Bull, many times, we decided to pop in for a meal. What a treat. Lovely foody type menu without being pretentious. Very well kept inside and out. A picturesque English pub. The staff were welcoming and on a very hot day it must be hard to keep so cool with so many people demanding your attention!

Love, love, love a pair of Nevills!

“NCG Top Gastro Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I remember the dark days of the NCG when it used to be a Brewers Fayre and overrun with kids . Now its a really top notch Gastro pub with a great range of drinks and plenty of choice on the menu . Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the food is great .

“Excellent meal and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Stopped here on he way back from Portsmouth on my birthday. Really glad we did, excellent choice of local real ales, good menu with sensible number of choices. All cooked to order so don't expect instant results, but when it arrived it was well worth the wait. The staff were brilliant and attentive without being obsequious. Will we go back too right we will 10/10

“Our experience at The Nevill Crest & Gun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

My husband and I visited The Nevill Crest & Gun on Sunday 30th June with my sister and elderly mother - it was a very special day as it was my mother's 91st birthday. I feel that it is necessary to e-mail you as our experience with you was one of our best. Whilst the food was good, Georgia, our waitress was wonderful! As soon as we were passed on to her to lead us to our table, we immediately felt at ease. We have never had a waitress that has been so efficient and attentive. Our glasses were never empty and used plates didn’t remain for long at all considering how busy she was. Georgia always had a smile on her face, so joy-filled and kind. When serving us she went far beyond her job description. There are so many delicious meals on your menu that we were stuck on what to choose, Georgia recommended different menu items and wine, she even put a candle in my mother’s crème brulee! When my mother received this, her smile was the cherry on top of the cake. The kindness of this girl was endearing. Throughout the meal, as my husband and I watched her (we just couldn’t help ourselves!) she treated all of her customers the same way, making every person feel special and important. Our visit was memorable but Georgia made our time there outstanding. You have a real gift in her.

We will definitely be returning soon!
