We loved the Warren. The food was outstanding and the staff were great. Not rushed at all & everything cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and quirky surroundings. We will be back.

Friendly, knowledgeable, service backed by expertly judged cooking. We had a superbly executed French classic, Cote de Boeuf, and drank a luscious Sedlescombe red from East Sussex. The people of Tunbridge Wells are very lucky!

We had been a few years ago and knew it was good so decided to go with 2 close friends we had not seen for 2 years.
It was wonderful. Service was excellent and great advice and suggestions on sauces etc to accompany dishes.
All the food was amazing. The beef carpaccio was so thinly sliced it melted in your mouth. The Cote de beouff so tender and succulent. But pork chop, lamb and other started were a joy.
Very happy and would highly recommend for a lovely location in which to enjoy superb local produce cooked and prepared with love and great taste.

The venue and staff were very good. Food fell a little short with respect to mains. We had the Sunday Roast. Whilst it was generally ok, it didn’t appear to be cooked to medium at best - it was definitely over done. The Yorkshire’s weren’t too flash either. A lot of gastro-pubs would hands down beat the offering at the price point.

Dining at The Warren was lovely. Everything was great; from the impeccable service to the excellent quality meal. Even the restaurant decor was fabulous. We’re not from the area but will certainly make an attempt to go back if ever in the area.

We had heard mixed reviews about the Warren. We had a palette cleanser shot which was pleasant then the croquettes which were good and the charcuterie plater which had some great piccalilli. For a main we had the rack of lamb and the Salad Nicoise with tuna. What I think let this down was the quality of the ingredients. It felt like the salad had been put together with a bag of mixed salad, the basic range tomato's and some olives out of a jar, all from the local supermarket. If this was a British Farm-to-table restaurant then I would hope that all the ingredients taste home grown. With something as simple as a Salad Nicoise the ingredients make and break the dish. This one felt like I could have put it together. It is often the details that give a restaurant it's reputation and we felt the service was OK - no attention to refilling our glasses, the ambience was OK - the tables felt a little close together in these Covid times and there were enormous cobwebs in the corners of the room, and the food was OK but let down by the quality of the ingredients.

Good choice of dishes with a French leaning. Good wine list with a few by the glass.
Ambience excellent although piano music a little on the loud side for us .
Recommended.

The only part of the meal that was decent was the starter, and that's where it stopped. For a restaurant of that calibre we expected much better. My lamb was raw and cold. Basically, the prices don't match the quality of food that was served.

Went for a birthday dinner, great service and food was superb. Piano being played in the reception area was a lovely compliment to the experience.

Will be going back again.

I like the Warren and am very pleased to see it is still going strong after lockdowns. I have come to know the staff quite well, so the sometimes quirky service doesn't bother me. My advice would be, get to know them, they're incredibly friendly, enjoy the experience and definitely don't fret over an occasional slow response or confused order.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Warren.

Surprised The Warren maintains itself the Micheline guide.

The ambience is nice...i kind of like the the old fashion yet kitch layout. Whilst there is nothing particularly wrong, given the price, the quality is not there. We experienced poor service too; arriving early for a pre dinner cocktail we had 4 people tell us someone will be with us; booked for 8pm we were sat at our table at 10 past; took some time again to order a drink and then the food. Starter was fairly prompt but nothing special and then our main did not arrive until 10 to 10! Extraordinary! Tastey but again not what you would expect from its reputation and supposed standard.
Before we could complain (we did not bother with desert) they did remove the gratuity from the bill and an extra £5...which though positive does not particularly make up for the experience.

This was our first night out for some time and for my wife's birthday. We were disappointedly left flat.

We had to wait 3/4 minutes at reception but we were a 5.45pm booking and my English sparkling wine was delayed in arrival but otherwise spot on

A favourite haunt or ours in Tunbridge Wells. A welcoming and happy experience, each time. Exceptionally delicious quality food (and wine (hic!)) with a knowledgeable and happy French Waiter. An ambience of eccentricity and an opportunity to dress up. Thank you!

It's a decent restaurant but nowhere near the standards expected from the prices. No idea how they are in the Michelin guide. Bog standard food that you could get at any local restaurant. Overall decent enough - nothing inedible! - but not worth the prices at all.

Starters and desserts are fairly good, main courses average pub food. Very Overpriced for the standard of the food.
Not sure how they are in the Michelin guide.
