    Friendly staff who gave a lovely personal touch. Quite a long wait for our food seeing as it wasn't busy but we didn't mind as we enjoyed the chance to chat and catch up. Sunday roast was enjoyable with plenty of food and a good variety of vegetables. Always love a side serving of cauliflower cheese. Three had the beef which was apparently great. The three of us who had the pork were just a bit disappointed that the meat was very fatty and worst of all soggy crackling! I would always go for chicken if it was sliced but didn't fancy a half chicken, assuming on the bone. Sticky toffee pudding lived up to expectations as did the crumble. Would definitely like to try their mussels night.

    A wonderfully warm and friendly welcome, everyone was smiling and helpful, food was excellent as were the virgin mojitos my wife and I had. Relaxed atmosphere and really nice decor…first but definitely not the last visit. Thanks for a great evening 👍👏👏👏

    Food was incredible, probably the best roast dinner in Tunbridge wells. The only thing I would say is the heat in the restaurant, may be worth opening more of the doors.

    Father’s Day brunch -they were very busy and some technical issues with their app interface meant they overbooked, but I did get a phone call the day before as they could only fit us in if we changed the time, which was no problem for us. When we went they didn’t seem overly full just not enough staff which is a problem many places these days. They were run off their feet but still so polite and charming. We waited one hour for our food and the staff came over to apologise -I felt this wasn’t an adequate response in relation to the cost of eating out. There were quite a few babies and young children so it was happily noisy. The food was good apart from the poached eggs having hard yolks. Overall it was fine, and nice to be out, but quite expensive given the issues. We probably wouldn’t return, as have had a more reliable experience at a number of other places. I hope they are able to invest in even one more staff member and to set out adequate responses when standards of service fail, to offer a better experience, as good as comparable venues in TW.

    My burger and the salad it came with were both very small portions for the price. The restaurant was too noisy to even have any conversation with my friend due to a combination of a crowded restaurant, birthday party of people drinking at the bar and the live music.

    Unfortunately this was a disappointing experience for us. Firstly they didn’t seem to have our booking in order. The music both live and through the system was so loud you couldn’t hear each other across the table. The waiter even went to turn it down as he couldn’t take the order. We had an early sitting but on starting to order we were told that half of the menu was no longer available leaving 4 mains options. It was only 6:30pm! Food was average and overpriced for what you got and service was slow. Sad, but they have a lot of work to do.

    Me and my boyfriend visited your restaurant for the first time in January.. when we walked in it was just the both of us we got a bit worried thinking why isn’t there anyone else in here! But we absolutely loved it we both had a steak and than a yummy sticky toffee pudding.. This has been our favourite place ever since. Thank you

    We visited for the first time this week but often eat out in Tunbridge Wells. We both had the TN1 burger with fries, served with a salad and drank the pale ale. The food was nicely presented but the burger was a little ‘over’ for my taste and seemed very large. Fries, beer and salad were great. Very welcoming, good service, nice furniture and spaced out tables. Music was too loud and a bit obtrusive. Overall experience was good but not fantastic.

    What a great place. Service was friendly and attentive, menu with variety without going over the top. I will certainly be returning as value for money was great and food was excellent. Completely different from previous ownership.

    Very enjoyable experience. Good food and pleasant surroundings. The owners are very personable. We ask for wheelchair access and we were accommodated no problem. Only negative was the toilet in the disabled toilet would not flush.
