What People Say About Us

First wedding anniversary meal. We’ve just got back from our complimentary first wedding anniversary meal at The Barn. We don’t live locally to Tunbridge Wells and haven’t been back there since we got married. Just like on our wedding day the sun came out for us. Walking back in there brought back so many wonderful memories of our perfect day. Being personally greeted by the staff and of course the lovely Philippe made it extra special oh and the glass of Champagne went down well. We ordered our food from a huge menu, where we were seated was perfect as it gave us a chance to take stock of the whole restaurant and fully appreciate how lovely a restaurant it really is. We reminisced throughout our meal and had the pleasure of Philippe coming over and chatting to us for quite a while, this man deserves a medal! He is truly dedicated to his job, its more than a job for him and this shows. Philippe, we will get in touch with Channel 4 about the ‘First Dates’ spin off, we are thinking ‘Barn Dates’?!? You’d make the best host… just need to fit it in to your already busy schedule, definitely on to a winner with this idea though πŸ˜‰ Seriously though, great food, lovely atmosphere, a fantastic team of staff, with brilliant service and we wished we lived nearer but have promised ourselves that we won’t leave it another year before returning. Thank you again for today Philippe and not forgetting Janet and huge thanks to everyone that makes The Barn what it is. See you soon! Your Girls πŸ™‚

I have been to the Barn countless times over the last 4 months, including for Christmas, birthdays and work celebrations with friends and family. Every meal has been amazing and your chateaubriand again did not disappoint. One of the best meals I’ve ever had, and to top it off as it was pancake day and your chef had a small amount of batter left over from pancakes he made for your staff he kindly made us two pancakes which were delicious! Each time we visit The Barn the chef makes me a fantastic chocolate milkshake for dessert-which isn’t on the menu but they go out of their way to make it as I love them! Additionally your team at The Barn are incredible, Graham has been the waiter for our last few meals and is brilliant, all the staff are great however. Thank you so much The Barn and looking forward to another meal very soon! Xx

We ate at your restaurant on Friday night and I just wanted to say thank you for such a great experience. The food and cocktails were amazing and the staff were great!

Donna Kelly Grimsley – Facebook March 2017

Awesome food great price. We went for dinner for my wife’s birthday and I can say that I was very impressed. My Wife had a three course meal for Β£12 and it was a big soup starter, a large main meal and great dessert. I had a massive burger that was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful and made it an amazing night. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

TripAdvisor – March 2017

First time visiting this place this afternoon and had a fantastic 3 course meal. Best home made restaurant I’ve been to. Staff very friendly and made you feel welcome. Looking forward to my next visit next month for my daughters wedding. Thanks

Geraldine Perrin – Facebook March 2017

Great lunch. Great meal! Value for money and service were both great – I’d recommend for couples or larger groups

TripAdvisor – February 2017

Fantastic place to pop in and have a bite to eat! The staff are friendly and helpful too. Thanks to Graham for excellent service

Kayleigh Anne Rowley – Facebook February 2017

Best Restaurant in Tunbridge Wells. My Daughter booked this restaurant for 7 of us and we all had the set a la carte menu 3 courses for Β£18-25 starter I had Garlic mushrooms with Stilton, followed up with Dover Sole and new potatoes and just had room for the apple and pecan pie with ice cream. The staff were excellent, we were not hurried, food came hot and drinks reasonably priced, as someone who enjoys eating out at least once a week this restaurant ticked all the boxes. Well done keep it up.

TripAdvisor – February 2017

Amazing in every aspect!!! I had an amazing experience both at the bar and the restaurant. The food was really well done and the portions even for the starters were quite big. The service was amazing. Very welcoming and kind staff. Highly recommend this place!!! If I ever come back to Tunbridge Wells that will be the place to go first!

TripAdvisor – February 2017

Thank you for a wonderful valentines meal last night…The atmosphere was perfect and the food was as delicious as ever!! Without a doubt that was the best steak we have ever eaten in our life!! It almost brought tears to Nick’s eyes lol. XxX

Zoe Withers – Facebook February 2017

Thank you for lovely evening on Saturday night! ! Once again the chefs delivered a great meal and Graham was excellent, Thank you.

Rosemary Masters – Facebook February 2017

Still our favourite. We have been to The Barn several times as it’s the only place my partner and I both really like, I’m a bit of a foodie and have never been disappointed regardless of what I order, my chap is a hungry builder who wants a decent sized plate of good food! In addition the service is always excellent, I would definitely recommend it and even suggest joining their loyalty scheme.

TripAdvisor – February 2017

Great food, great price and great company. Our waiter was a fellow Zimbabwean and he was great too! Thank you Graham!

Sharon Ledingham Marnie – Facebook February 2017

Great little treasure tucked in the centre of TW. We had a work xmas dinner here, and it was a great night. Really pretty restaurant upstairs, would never had known it was there. Nice pub with outdoor space too. The food was pretty good, looked nice, was hot and tasty. Service was good and friendly. Would definitely recommend and go again! Thanks!

Excellent Christmas Party. Booked for office Christmas Party and attended Masquerade Dinner in early December – a great night had by all Warmest thanks

TripAdvisor – December 2016

Fantastic food as always. I’ve had several meals at The Barn and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, and the staff always very friendly. We have never had to wait a long time for our meal to be served. I would always recommend The Barn to anyone wanting a good meal.

TripAdvisor – December 2016

Thank you to all the chefs for the Christmas meal that you provided on Friday night! 1st class as usual. Well done!

Rosemary Masters – Facebook December 2016

Great pre-concert dinner !Ideal if you are going to the Assembly Rooms just up the hill. Pre 7.30 dinner – Β£10 for two courses – portions were not huge but food was tasty, service was good and it didn’t leave a hole in the wallet. I will be back…..

TripAdvisor – November 2016

Lovely in the summer. Been here twice. Once with family visiting in the summer and they were so impressed. Beer garden is gorgeous. They also do a really good discount when you apply for a card – which is free of charge. Cocktail bar opened in the garden and it was just fantastic. Food is good, never had a bad meal! Lovely for friends. Family. Couples.

TripAdvisor – November 2016

Excellent value. The food is very tasty. The bar and waiting staff are very friendly. I’d definitely recommend to anyone looking for a well priced pub lunch/dinner. Great value for money.

TripAdvisor – October 2016

Excellent food and atmosphere. Fantastic food and extremely friendly staff. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the food was top notch. Would recommend and revisit.

TripAdvisor – October 2016

Nice food. We enjoyed our meal here today. I had the chicken Caesar salad followed by ice cream . My partner had the moules said he had never had such a large delicious portion .He then had the toffee and pecan crumble. Also very good indeed . Our friends all agreed that the food was very good. Service was friendly and swift. Certainly would visit again when in the area.

TripAdvisor – September 2016

A Hidden Treasure as per a Buzzlines Customer” I went on your mystery tour today and I want you to know how much I enjoyed the experience. Despite the rain I didn’t hear a single complaint from anyof the other passengers. Dave, the driver, was excellent and as far as I am concerned The Barn was Tunbridge Wells hidden treasure. I hadn’t been there before, in fact I had never heard of it, but I will certainly be going there again. The Maidstone bus even stops outside! The lunch was delicious and the staff were most pleasant and efficient. I don’t know if today was the first time that Buzzlines have booked The Barn but if it was you should definitely put it on your list for future trips.Thank you

TripAdvisor – September 2016

Not bad! I’ve been here twice during my holiday in Tunbridge. The reception has been very kind and we ate some good bread during our short waiting. The waitress gave su our fishes and hamburger and we enjoyed them. We were given the bill shortly after our requirement and prices were cheap. One of the best restaurant in Tunbridge Wells.

TripAdvisor – September 2016

Lunch in an hour. Good and service was good, friendly staff and hot food. Good choice for an hours lunch as you are not kept waiting.

TripAdvisor – September 2016

Anniversary party. Lovely bar restaurant. The food was presented well and was well cooked. Bar staff were very helpful and polite.

TripAdvisor – September 2016

Best steak house in town. Excellent dining room separate from the bar so you can have a pint first before dinner. Go extravagant, steaks are fantastic and do a sharing moules mariniere to bulk up the ever hungry teenagers!

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. We ate in the upstairs restaurant. As well as the a la carte menu there is a lunchtime & pre-theatre menu, the latter at Β£9.95p. With a loyalty card offer of 50% off individual menu items cost we chose the a la carte menu. My starter of pate with Melba toast & onion chutney was very tasty, followed by a main of fish platter. This consisted of whitebait deep-fried in breadcrumbs, prawns with a chilli & lime sauce, & mussels in a creamy sauce. This came with a portion of chips. No room for a pudding after all that! The service was excellent, ambience was pleasant, & the quality of food excellent. With 2 glasses of prosecco & a lovely pint of real ale, the total cost for two was under Β£35. Great value.

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Amazing food. Went to the restaurant for lunch. Basically we had the restaurant all for ourselves which was amazing. The staff was nice and attentive. The food was on point and cooked perfectly.I had a duck salad with watermelon for appetiser, a chicken mixed grill and to finish it 2 desserts: β€œThree for Me” (Sticky Toffee Pudding, Eton Mess and Baileys Cheesecake) and a chocolate brownie. The chicken grill wasn’t what I expected because I pictured something else in my mind, but was really good. The desserts were amazing. The only problem was that by the time we went for the desert we were already to full from everything else. The portions are really generous. The bar/restaurant is wonderful, next time I will try to go with more time to enjoy it more.

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Lovely fresh cooked food with very friendly service. We were the last customers of the day and just about managed to order before the kitchen closed. This normally worries me as some chefs don’t put as much effort in that late and want to go home but not in this s beautiful restaurant although we were the last and only guests in the restaurant (it was late on a Monday evening) we had great service and great food. The restaurant is rustic with beautiful beams and the garden area is gorgeous! Would definitely go there again and can highly recommend the sirloin steaks or the spicy fajitas!

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Good in-the-heart of the town Pub. Nice pub with good food. The pub has a spacious garden area that accommodated guests well and good. Food served was fantastic (though a bit pricy) and there is wide variety of drinks on offer… All well for a nice date or for a business meet.

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Nice pb, interesting shots.I arranged to meet someone here, it was a nice day so we sat out in the garden which is a lovely area just off to the side of the venue. We were there on a Wednesday and it wasn’t very buys, but it slowly filled up until there was quite busy. We ordered wine and a pint which was all very nice, the staff knew what they were talking about and there was an interesting range of shots like rhubarb and custard. The pub was clean and very tidy, the toilets were in a good condition and the staff were attentive. The Barn has a good presence on social media and I was able to follow them on the usual platforms, I also managed to appear in one of their photos on Twitter (so I am glad I did my hair). But it is a good way of finding out what they have on offer and what events are coming up. This is a big plus in my books. It was clean, prices were reasonable, staff were good and the loos were clean.

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Dining. On 20 July together with 3 colleagues we dined at The Barn. It was very busy but despite this we were served very quickly by a charming waitress called Lauren. The food as usual was very good as was the service. I would recommend this restaurant for its good value and food.

TripAdvisor – August 2016

60th birthday celebration. An excellent venue with good beer, food and excellent staff. The new build pub was done very cleverly along Elizabethan lines and is very distinctive. The service was brilliant and although the bar was very busy 3 or even 4 staff kept the clientele serviced in an efficient and cheery fashion. Only 100 yards from the station but limited close parking although a high capacity long term car park up the hill turn right wasn’t too much of a trek.

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Definitely worth a return visit. Went for a mid week meal planning to use our taste card, really lovely food & excellent service, the waitress then informed us we would get a better discount with the restaurants own loyalty card this month, so now have even more reasons to return. Would highly recommend

TripAdvisor – August 2016

Great Gluten Free Lunch. We had lunch here today and it was great. Best thing was, apart from the food, their knowledge about Gluten Free food and the first time that I’ve been able to have Cheese with GF Crackers.A great Restaurant. We will be back.

TripAdvisor – July 2016

Great party venue. Super venue for a bbq to celebrate a 50th birthday. Well cooked burgers and hot dogs with varied salads at very reasonable price. Well stocked bar and dining room with adjacent paved patio area with tables, chairs and pot plants, with pergolas and sun umbrellas for shade, all set aside for our private use at very reasonable cost. Pleasant helpful staff. Parking nearby.

TripAdvisor – July 2016

Lovely. Nice little place we came on a Saturday night. So was a little busy but we enjoyed our meal here we will be back!!! I could eat the chips all day

Evergreen Club from Guildford (30th June 2016). Welcoming, friendly atmosphere and good food which was done for 21 elderly people who really enjoyed it. Thank you

TripAdvisor – June 2016

Diamond Wedding Celebration. We booked this venue for our celebrations on the back of my daughter’s wedding reception here in July of last year. Our thanks to Philippe who was very helpful and cooperative in all the arrangements for the day. There were 30 guests at the celebration. The meal was very well presented so our thanks to the chef for all his efforts to provide the meal which was excellent. The service provided by the staff was first class.
I would have no hesitation in booking the venue again for any future occasion.

TripAdvisor – June 2016

Dear Philippe, thank you so much for helping to make our Golden Wedding Celebration so wonderful. You stepped in when we needed help so much! The venue was all we could have hoped for, your staff were amazing and your guidance was so professional. You gave us the evening we dreamed of and the impression you gave to all our guests will be long lasting – many of them vowing to return to The Barn.

Mr and Mrs Pickett – June 2016

Great dinner with friends. I have been to the Barn Pub previously but only to have a drink in the bar downstairs. The restaurant upstairs was quiet and very nicely set out. We went on a Wednesday night so no idea what it would be like on a Friday or Saturday night. There was a good selection of starters, mains and desserts. The food when it came out was delicious and plentiful. The bar downstairs is well stocked with every sort of alcohol. The local gin is called 1606 and made in Tunbridge Wells, so I would recommend that. There was only one member of staff in the restaurant and we were well looked after by her. I would recommend visiting the Barn.

TripAdvisor – June 2016

Great Handling of a Large Group. I organise a course on building conservation and every year struggle to find somewhere that can cope with a group of 50 people for dinner. So finding the Barn was a real pleasure. Before the event, Lauren was a great help with menu choices and dealing with our various dietary requirements. On the day itself, the whole team excelled with smooth, friendly service. The food was delicious, at a good price, and the restaurant itself is lovely. A great place and we will definitely be back if we are in the area again.

TripAdvisor – June 2016

Excellent Ploughmans. We were a party of 46 who booked a Ploughmans and a Coffee for lunch. Super food, excellent service, can’t fault the food or surroundings, thank you.

TripAdvisor – June 2016

Good food and friendly staff. Six of us had a round table – always the best for a group – and we all enjoyed our food immensely, prior to attending a gig across the road at The Assembly Hall. Two of us had the Duck which was perfectly cooked with delicious sauce and sweet potato fries. My husband loved his minute steak; as did the other members of the group – variously chicken caesar salad, a pasta dish, and a chicken dish with tasty bacon and (?) sauce. Desserts were to die for and we enjoyed a reasonable bottle of red wine too. All for under Β£20 per head! Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive.

TripAdvisor – May 2016

Large family reunion. Yet another enjoyable evening…Our favourite place to meet with friends and family. Always a great atmosphere and good food! Always very well looked after.

TripAdvisor – May 2016

Excellent choice. Arrived here pretty late on Tuesday with a party of eight. Staff very welcoming and found us a table despite it being very busy. Food was of an excellent standard and everyone was delighted with their meal. Staff member was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this establishment.

TripAdvisor – April 2016

One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Located just off Mount Pleasant Road in the centre of town, this place is surprisingly easy to miss and has the feel of a country pub rather than one of TWells’ swanky bistros. As such the welcome you receive is a warm one, and the quality of the staff make this place stand out from the rest. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and we were made to feel at ease despite arriving very early for our table. The food is reasonably priced and of excellent quality, in particular the steak; I opted for the sirloin with the house sauce. The sauce was a bit runny and didn’t add much to the steak, which was tender and juicy and perfectly cooked – as I said in the title of this review, one of the best steaks I’ve had (and I have had plenty, in restaurants far more expensive than this one). Also wonderful to have a choice of potatoes, and to have my steak served with fresh, well cooked vegetables. Desserts were also excellent, in particular the ‘Three For Me’, exceptionally good value and ideal if, like us, we can’t decide which dessert to have. The Eton Mess was wonderful, as was the scoop of coffee ice cream (my favourite).I started with the stilton and garlic mushrooms, which were tasty but served on what might have been garlic bread, but due to the runny sauce had become very mushy. Would recommend serving the garlic bread/crouton/toast or whatever it was on the side. It was only the tiniest disappointment because the mushrooms themselves were delicious. We also had a mojito, which was good. If you’re in Tunbridge Wells for a meal, I’d recommend you avoid the endless overpriced chain restaurants and give The Barn a try – you won’t be disappointed.

TripAdvisor – April 2016

@TheBarnTWells Thank you for everything. You’ve been awesome

Sarah – 12th March 2016

1st visit. Visited the Barn for my daughter’s birthday and our 25th anniversary also as my daughter has booked her wedding here for next year. The barn itself is a lovely place to sit and have a drink bar staff were very welcoming and polite. We sat upstairs in the main restaurant we all had the fixed price menu and selection was very good all meals were produced lovely. We also had a lovely complimentary bottle of Prosecco which was very nice. In all we had a lovely time staff were polite and helpful food was great. Will definitely be visiting again. Thanks to The Barn.

Tunbridge Wells Mental Health Resource – 29th February 2016

Great bar food. I came here for a bite to eat before catching a train as it is next door. I usually come here for a drink. As they have a nice conservatory to sit in (was being refurbished when I visited) as well as plenty of covered and heated seating outside. I got the BLT with chips. The baguette it came in was really fresh and there was plenty of bacon. Chips were great too. Really good value for money as well as quick friendly service from everyone. 100% plan to try the main restaurant soon

TripAdvisor – February 2016

@TheBarnTWells Thank you all for looking after us today. We will highly recommend you to others #EverythingIsAwesome

Richard – 28th February 2016

I just want to say a massive thank you for our superb meal last night for my birthday. We visited The Barn 17.02.16 (6 of us booked under the name of Sarah). We were extremely happy to find the food was 50% of due to my loyalty card. We all were served by two very cheerful, professional and competent waitresses. Our food you honestly couldn’t fault and everything was beyond perfect. The overall evening was lovely and we all said that it’s the nicest meal we have had out in years. I’d really appreciate you feeding back to the waitresses and chef how brilliant they were. It was just the two waitresses but they were brilliant and provided an amazing service. Thank you again – we will be visiting again very soon!!! Many thanks.

Sarah – 18th February 2016

Chris – 28th February 2016

Lovely Pre theatre dinner! On a recent family visit to Tunbridge Wells and not being from the area we used Trip Advisor to find a suitable establishment for dinner. We were not disappointed and found the food great for both adults and kids and the staff extremely helpful. If you want well priced, good quality food all served with a smile then look no further!

TripAdvisor – December 2015

Excellent Food & Excellent Value for Money. We recently visited Royal Tunbridge Wells and we didn’t fancy the hotel menu. A search of local restaurants brought up the Barn Restaurant, so we booked. The service was superb and the food excellent. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to all.

TripAdvisor – December 2015

Birthday Meal. Had a fantastic meal tonight, it was busy with large bookings but the staff were still attentive and the food was fantastic. The new cocktails were good too. Definitely will return.

TripAdvisor – November 2015

Wonderful place and staff. Didn’t know the pub even though I only live a short distance away. I phoned and made a booking which included an elderly person. Parking is not an easy task there but it wasn’t until we went in the they informed us that they had put kept a space for us directly outside the entrance to help us with our guest. It is so nice for them to do this and I didn’t ask them to. Food order was taken and delivered in a fast time. Cannot fault this place. Will be back and thank you again.

TripAdvisor – October 2015

Anniversary Lunch. My wife and I got married at the Barn two years ago and went back today to celebrate our anniversary. We had lunch in the restaurant upstairs and the food and service was excellent. This is a lovely venue for lunch and an amazing venue to get married. The staff are very attentive and as said previously the food was excellent. It was also good to catch up with Philippe.

TripAdvisor – October 2015

Well worth a visit. Great staff and excellent food all served in a building that was charming and with a great atmosphere.

Lunch. Been here twice recently for work lunches. First time I had baked potato with tuna mayonnaise, very large and came with salad. Had a side of curly fries but couldn’t eat them all!Second time I had tuna mayonnaise sandwich, which was an enormous doorstep of a sarnie…much too big for me. It came with salad and crisps. Both times I enjoyed the food and it was quite reasonable. There is a nice atmosphere in the place and will go back.

TripAdvisor – September 2015

So impressed! Beautiful place and truly stunning food for a great price. Only had one waitress tonight and she was fantastic. Great place to go, and we will definitely come again! Thanks for the perfect evening.

TripAdvisor – September 2015

A wonderful party for our son. We hosted a BBQ at The Barn for our 11 month old son to introduce him to our wider family. It was a beautiful day – the sun was shining and everyone had a brilliant time. Great food and the service was fantastic on the day as well as in the months and weeks before, as we were preparing for the event. Thanks again.

TripAdvisor – July 2015

Great. Food great, staff great. Garden 1st class. Very friendly. Clean pub and toilets new and clean. Great all rounder. Will always go to The Barn. Plus free WiFi and phone charger

TripAdvisor – July 2015

Good Food Great pub. Great food coupled with wonderful relaxing surroundings – they have plenty of cover on a hot day – the food is above average and the wine and beer list is extensive

TripAdvisor – July 2015

Fantastic. We have dined here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and very well priced along with the drinks. The staff are extremely courteous and cannot do enough to help, we have enjoyed ourselves so much that we held our wedding here this July and again the service we received was second to none.I would recommend that people dine here especially if you are a family as our children have always been welcomed and have found it stress free with them both.

TripAdvisor – July 2015

Exceeding expectations once again!. We always go back to this place as the food is tip top and the staff so friendly! Beautiful surroundings make it feel a special treat! Always worth making the trek over from Rainham when the experience is this good! Thanks again Guys, keep up the good work!

TripAdvisor – July 2015

Good food, good prices. Staff friendly, food well cooked, straight forward, reasonably priced.. Good choice of wines and drinks. Great loyalty card

TripAdvisor – July 2015

Great meal 2 days on a row. What a gem!!! Just around the corner from Tunbridge Wells BR, an old converted bard with tons of atmosphere. The restaurant (and for that matter the bar) seating is very generous in that you are not crowed by other tables. The staff are really attentive and know what you want and when but are not in your face. Then there is the food – well all I can say is this was our 2nd time back and will not be our last

TripAdvisor – June 2015

Hen do. Great night good service , food is typical pub food very good value. Pleasant environment, with pub downstairs.

TripAdvisor – June 2015

Excellent dinner. Met members of my family here as a half way point for dinner. Lovely place, great looking bar, conservatory and garden. Restaurant upstairs is less olde worlde but still very nice. Plenty of staff: friendly and attentive. Good knowledge of menu too. Stilton and mushroom starter was excellent. Mains also v well cooked: rump steak was tender, fish platter was amazing, lamb v well cooked too. Recommend this place.

TripAdvisor – June 2015

Lunch in the garden. Very enjoyable business lunch sitting in the garden in the sunshine. The kitchen is always quick here and the food good. Arrived less than 10 minutes after ordering which meant we could do the meeting, eat and be back at my desk in under an hour. Brilliant for a working lunch.

TripAdvisor – June 2015

Nice food, nice price. Attended here today following a visit to the nearby theatre. This was our first visit. Bar staff friendly and helpful. Food is also exceptionally good for value. Kids had a jacket potato with cheese and beans and they were huge. Wowcha. The bathrooms were clean and fresh with no previous residue’s πŸ˜‰ – all a big plus in my books! Very close to the station, numerous shops and theatre. We will definitely return.

TripAdvisor – May 2015

Pub lunch! Our third visit in the last month or so. Looking for a old beer and some lunch. The last 2 time we had eaten here were lovely. On this occasion the specials board had Paella on the menu for only Β£6.95. the bowl was huge and it was gorgeous. Prawns, muscles, chicken. was really lovely.

TripAdvisor – May 2015

The Barn. We now have been to The Barn 3 times this year and each time we come away saying what a lovely meal. Such good value for a 3 course meal. During the week it is even better value as one can use a Tastecard and it is even cheaper. The staff are always friendly and pleasant. We have lived in this area for over 40 years and it is only this year that we have discovered how nice it is. Definitely recommend.

TripAdvisor – May 2015

Looks great, very good service. We booked a table upstairs, the dΓ©cor is great, nice and bright with lovely atmosphere. We were eating early so it wasn’t too busy, young man serving us was very attentive, food brilliant and there was lots of it, very reasonably priced as well. The Bar area looked nice, and outside area looked good as well. My first time here, can’t wait to bring husband.

TripAdvisor – April 2015

Scrumptious food. Went to the upstairs restaurant and had fabulous meal. Excellent value and quality. Good friendly service. Loyalty card great idea. A good place to meet up with friends.

TripAdvisor – April 2015

Lovely food and friendly/speedy service. We visited for a pre theatre meal. The service was friendly and the food lovely. We would recommend a visit for a tasty meal.

TripAdvisor – April 2015

Cider and cheese board perfection. Ordered the cheese board to share between 2, generous portions of 4 delicious cheeses and 2 kinds of chutney and grapes. Don’t think the bread was necessary at all, just stick with more crackers! Outdoor heated beer garden very pretty and could easily spends many hours sat there on a sunny afternoon

TripAdvisor – April 2015

Fantastic in Every Way. We had a four generation family gathering here and nothing was too much trouble. Ask for more roast potatoes and loads arrive, etc. After the lovely meal we rearranged the tables to be more sociable and the staff jumped to help us, we did leave rather a mess of table confetti, bunting and icing from the birthday cake all over the floor but it wasn’t a problem and we were encouraged to return! The restaurant is upstairs and toilets downstairs which could be a problem for some

What food! This place is not easy to find – go just up the hill from the train station and look to the left – there’s a little sign up above a shop. Turn left onto that side street and it’s just there on the left.

TripAdvisor – April 2015

Food was wonderful, and servers very courteous and helpful. Like most pubs, it’s not fast. This is a place to take your time and enjoy.

Saved Christmas. I am new to Trip Advisor after being recommended this by a local restaurant and felt the Barn more than deserved my review! We spent Christmas at the Barn after our house flooded and we were facing Christmas in a hotel, the staff made our Christmas utterly fabulous and saved our Christmas. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was great, all the little touches made it special like the gift boxes crackers and shiny hats. Amazing food and fresh yummy ingredients gives the barn a big thumbs up!

Pre Theatre Meal. We visited The Barn in Tunbridge Wells for a pre theatre meal. It was a set menu for Β£18.95 and you were given a good choice on each course. For starters I had Stilton & Garlic Mushrooms on a Crouton and my husband had the home made soup which i tried and was delicious. For main we both had Whole Torbay Sole and then dessert I had the Baileys Cheesecake and hubby had Rum Bread & Butter pudding. The restaurant is as the name suggests A Barn like structure with lovely wooden beams. Would definitely visit again if in the area.

Superb Steak. Came to Tunbridge Wells visiting family and booked to eat here as it was very close to our hotel. We weren’t disappointed, the rump steak was excellent! Highly recommend to all!

Food and Service I have found has always been good. I too went to a wedding there, it was great. We have been there on many occasions and never been disappointed.

Excellent evening. Had a lovely meal at The Barn this evening. Good service , lovely atmosphere fabulous food. We will be back!!

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Good value, nice food. Partner and I visited here on Tastecard. The food was really good quality and the portion size was perfect. They have a great selection of drinks/wines and it’s a nice atmosphere inside. I also receive offers from them inviting us to go back, which is a nice touch. If I lived closer I’d go back all the time!

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Last night we went on our Colonnade florist xmas do at the barn. We had the most amazing time, we were looked after so well by Philippe and all the lovely staff. The food was out of this world and we all agreed that it was an all round excellent evening. And all this for an amazing January offer price, which is still on….. so what are you waiting for!! Thank you so so much to you all.

Had our Christmas party here last night. All of the staff members at Waitrose thoroughly enjoyed the night. The team were great when it came to organisation, even working with the constant changes that were made prior to the night. The food was delightful, with a lot on the christmas menu to choose from. The entertainment downstairs kept us all going through the night. And all the staff were pleasant and friendly. I always love The Barn, so I knew this could make a great night of celebrations. Thank you!

Very impressed!!! Visited Tunbridge Wells this weekend with some friends from university. Very friendly service, great food and a great atmosphere!! Particularly enjoyed the Barn Style Chicken!! Cheers

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Wonderful restaurant. We are here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and ordered a loyalty card beforehand so we could get 50% off meals in the winter sale. The pub downstairs is beautiful and the staff were fantastic. We then went upstairs for the restaurant, which again was beautiful and the menu was very good, the prices were very reasonable. We ordered a starter of calamari which was beautifully presented and came with different types of bread and butter. We then got a chicken mixed grill and a steak burger which tasted exquisite. The waiter was fantastic and the service was very fast. Would recommend for anyone visiting or who lives in Tunbridge Wells to visit this place.

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Top class food, wonderful service, complete value for money. My daughter held her wedding there and it was unbelievable good in every way, service, food, everything. Words cannot do this place justice, the staff are amazing. Anyway we made several trips there before the wedding to eat, have a drink and once popped in for coffee. I have never been disappointed, the food is great. Everything about the place is 1st class and great value for money.

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Christmas Drinks with friends. I met some friends in The Barn on Tuesday 23rd December for pre-Christmas Drinks. The 5 of us sat in the conservatory and some of us decided to eat from the bar menu as we had not had anything to eat before we came out. We had the burger with bacon and Stilton. The burgers are homemade at The Barn and are absolutely delicious. Nice thick burgers in fresh buns with proper chips and a side salad. Definitely not frozen chips like you get in some restaurants. They also do the best mulled wine I have found in Tunbridge Wells so far. The staff are always so polite and friendly and I will be making this a regular venue for meeting friends and family as they have never let me down with their excellent service.

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Fantastic. Been here a number of times and keep meaning to write a review. Absolutely fantastic food every time in both the restaurant and bar and very reasonably priced. Staff have always been very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend a visit.

Perfect hospitality and exceptional food. The staff were welcoming, incredibly helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend eating in the restaurant .Thank you for a lovely evening!

TripAdvisor – January 2015

Good atmosphere. Visited The Barn for the first time in years after a family ice skating outing in Calverley Park. It was about 6pm and the place was packed. As there was 8 of us we had to sit outside but even though it was very cold the heaters kept us comfortable enough. The staff were friendly even though the place was packed. Will definitely return again.

Christmas Day. This was our third Christmas Day lunch here. The food was great and so were the staff. The whole restaurant inside and out were beautifully decorated. We will be going again next year.

Fantastic Christmas Day Lunch. I took my family here for Christmas Day lunch and was glad I did. The food was fantastic as was the atmosphere in the restaurant. The staff cannot do enough for you. Will be going again next Christmas Day.

TripAdvisor – December 2014

Extremely Good. I went to The Barn to celebrate a friends birthday in August. We pre-ordered of the al la carte menu – Β£17.99 for a three course meal. We were welcomed promptly by Philippe the manager of the restaurant and showed to our table. The restaurant was busy for a Saturday evening but the service was prompt and soon our drinks order was being taken. Some of us needed advice on suitability of certain wines to go with our main meals and Philippe was extremely patient and let us sample a glass before we ordered a bottle. Starters soon arrived and we tucked in. The ambience and food was good. Waiters hovered to make sure glasses were refilled and everything was ok. shortly afterwards mains came which everyone remarked was delicious. For dessert i decided on the baileys cheescake which was lovely. All in all 10/10 for the barn. A lovely meal excellent customer service, good portions and a great night out. We have all been back since and would recommend the barn every time.

TripAdvisor – December 2014

Great Atmosphere. Great restaurant situated in the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells just up from the rail station, The food is always excellent & there is also a good choice of drinks available

TripAdvisor – December 2014

Food to Die for – Never lets you down. I had my birthday Meal here on 9th August 2014. There was 12 of us that night. I ordered smoked salmon, dressed crab and Eton mess of the 17.99 al la carte menu. The food was simply to die for. It was delicious, well presented and good sized portions. Everyone who ate just said their food was lovely. Attention to detail and excellent customer service especially regarding wine queries was greatly appreciated. This is now a first rate restaurant and is beautiful surroundings. It has a lovely garden too and the atmosphere is great. The management take great care and are extremely attentive. I now use this restaurant regularly with friends as their food can never be faulted even their bar food such as burger and chips eaten downstairs is good with home made burgers. Every time this place delivers which is why it won the Kent wedding awards 2013 and why I chose it for my wedding venue for February.

TripAdvisor – December 2014

Work Christmas Dinner. I recently attended The Barn for my work Christmas dinner. The venue was clean, stylish and lovingly decorated for the Christmas season. We started with drinks in the bar downstairs, which I found to be reasonably priced. The staff were very accommodating. We had a few members of the party that were unable to attend at the last minute and as the food had already been paid for they allowed us to use the excess for a bar tab (greatly appreciated!). We then moved upstairs for our meal. The food was of a good standard and served within a good time frame. We were looked after by Andrew ‘the magnificent’ waiter, who could not have been better. Not only did he see to every request but he even partook in banter with the group! I cannot rate him highly enough and I would recommend the place solely on his service and wit! Overall, the experience of The Barn was a very good one and I will certainly return in the future should I be in the area.

TripAdvisor – December 2014

50th birthday meal. Had my family come down to celebrate my 50th birthday meal. We went for the 3 course menu with the food was lovely couldn’t fault anything wrong with it. Andrew and Lisa was really lovely as if we needed a drink or something they would get it for us. We pre-ordered so it was much easier for the chefs and out front. We even had to people to order on the night with they sorted it out with no problems. Would like to thanks the chefs and out front people for making my 50th birthday is extra special. Thank you.

TripAdvisor – December 2014

Good food, nice setting, would eat there again. We enjoyed good food, in interesting surroundings. Helpful and friendly waiters. Would definitely be going back in the New Year

Good food and excellent service. Cosy restaurant. Good varied menu. Very good friendly service . We were a small group of very varied ages and there was something to suit us all on the menu. All food was cooked and presented very well. The wine list was good and varied and there were several available by the glass and also half bottles. Any requests we had were attended to immediately and the overall service and attention was excellent. The restaurant was very cosy and comfortable. We will return and will certainly recommend to friends.

Best chicken and bacon salad it Tunbridge Wells. The food is great and the waiter Andrew is the best waiter in the world, and an encyclopaedia on food. Good size salads very tasty nice atmosphere great experience all round. I have my loyalty card and will soon be back.

Great Pub restaurant with good atmosphere and excellent food. We have visited this pub restaurant on several occasions now and each time the atmosphere, staff and quality of the food are excellent . The food prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are more than ample size. Stunning award winning garden which is lovely to sit in and enjoy a nice cool drink or two . There are barbecues in the summer and on one occasion they were cooking paella in the garden which we had to try and it was amazing. Highly recommend whatever time of year.

TripAdvisor – November 2014

Great pub for food and a few drinks. They have an amazing garden that can be used all year round thanks to good cover and heaters. Staff are always friendly and always ready to assist. Food is good old fashioned pub grub that is not only reasonable, but of good quality and also a proper portion. Would recommend to anyone to whom fancies a good atmosphere, good beer and to leave full up.

TripAdvisor – November 2014

Great food. Currently working up here last 2 weeks from Cardiff, first time I came in on Saturday, without a reservation, gentleman said no problem give me five minutes I’ll sort something out, within a minute I was seated. I had the salmon to start and it was very nice, steak burger and chips was spot on! And dessert was very nice also, so good I decided to go yesterday, and had the special menu before half 7 had the gammon was real good! Definitely say it’s the best food I’ve had since I’ve been here and would recommend anyone to give it a go!

TripAdvisor November 2014

Great evening with friends. Visited The Barn as part of a large group of friends for a birthday meal. I can’t remember what everyone had but as there were about 20 of us we certainly tried most of the menu! There were no complaints at all which is a feat in itself with a party of this size. Lovely meal and great atmosphere. Have booked again for a Christmas party and am very much looking forward to my next visit.

TripAdvisor – November 2014

Superb meal to round off our anniversary weekend. Having had our wedding at The Barn last October, we were invited back for an anniversary meal. We had been away for the weekend and visited on a Monday night for a meal to finish off a special anniversary. And it was the perfect ending. The food was superb, as was the service. I can’t say enough about the Barn. It will always have a special place in our hearts.

TripAdvisor – October 2014

Best ever meal. As we live in Eastbourne we had no idea of what Restaurants there were in Tunbridge Wells. We found the ‘The Barn’ on Trip Advisor and were very impressed by the comments. The meal was excellent, service, price and ambience were excellent. It should be awarded 5 stars. We will be coming back again and letting all our friends know.

Ernie & Sheila – TripAdvisor October 2014

Great service, food and price! We live in Essex but needed to take friends out to celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary. They live near Tunbridge Wells so we were taking a chance trying somewhere we had never been. But what a pleasant surprise. The restaurant is laid back, very attentive, great selection of food, outstanding service and speed getting food to you, And the food ??? Well, everything we ate was well presented, tasted great and each of us had a really good time. Try as I might, I cannot find fault. Hope they keep up the same high standards as we will look to go back again in a few months!

Lovely atmosphere, good value and excellent staff. We reserved the conservatory and an area outdoors for a get together the night before our wedding in July of this year. The staff couldn’t do enough to help us and accommodate our family and friends and the food was excellent – very good value and plenty of it. I have eaten here with smaller groups previously and the standard is consistently good. Would definitely recommend.

TripAdvisor – September 2014

Amazing food and staff. Went here on a Thursday night with my boyfriend, I had the mussels, boyfriend had the burger. Both were amazing. Chocolate brownie for pudding and got a sticky toffee pudding to take away, brownie was amazing! Andrew (I think that was his name) was lovely! Nothing was too difficult and he made us feel very welcome πŸ™‚ great atmosphere as well. Will definitely be back very soon πŸ™‚

TripAdvisor – September 2014

Stumbled upon a nice place. During a mini break in Tunbridge Wells we stumbled upon the Barn and had an early dinner. Lovely venue (upstairs) and good service. Quiet when we were there but it was early. Nice selection on the menu and good size portions (the rum bread and butter pudding got the better of me!). Interestingly they offer a loyalty card loaded up with 10% of your spend which for people living close (sadly not us!) could be a good attraction.
TripAdvisor – August 2014

Great food. I recently came to the Barn for a birthday treat from my son. I couldn’t be more pleased with what was produced. The food was excellent and the deserts are to die for. The whole family loved the meal from start to finish. The service from Josh and the other staff was excellent. Nothing was too much. We will most certainly be back soon.

Saturday lunchtime favourite. After a busy week we chill out for lunch at the Barn – cheese ploughman’s with more than enough bread and assortment of biscuits, grapes, celery and chutney – GREAT value. Service is friendly, restaurant and toilets clean, lovely seating outside – excellent. Ploughman x 1, 1 pint beer and half of Guinness – just under Β£15.00 including service with a smile.

I have eaten in the Barn a few times last year always with friends and I have now been to their restaurant three times recently. I have tried a variety of dishes and have found the food tasty and good. The butternut squash is delicious. So much so that not only am I having a birthday meal with friends but I have also now chosen the Barn as my wedding venue.

Great time. Have had many happy times here. The staff are attentive and look after you. A great time with no pressure.

Excellent meal and service. My husband booked a table for 8 of us for a birthday treat for me. From the very outset the staff were extremely helpful. My daughter is a vegetarian but unfortunately didn’t like the vegetarian option, the chef was only too happy to make her a jacket potato etc. The food was extremely tasty and staff really friendly. We all had a lovely evening and highly recommend it. We have been several times before and will definitely be returning.

Wedding Anniversary Meal. Last year we had our wedding reception at The Barn and as part of the package they invited us to come back a year later to celebrate our 1st anniversary on them. We decided to go back on the date of our anniversary and although it was a Bank Holiday, the restaurant was not crowded and we had a lovely table in the corner. When we enquired as to what we were allowed to have the waiter said anything was fine which we were not expecting and found very generous!! We both enjoyed starters, mains and desserts (along with a bottle of wine and coffee) on them and found it all to be lovely and delicious. We were even able to order the roast lamb we had enjoyed at our wedding and found it to be just as yummy! We had no problem with any of our food and found the service to be exceptional! The staff here are always friendly and welcoming and we cannot wait to keep returning! Thank you.

50th birthday surprise. I was lucky enough to have a surprise birthday meal organised at The Barn for myself and 15 family members. Everyone commented on how delicious every course of our meal was and we all had a varied selection from the a la carte menu. The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The service was excellent with just the right amount of space between each course. I will be recommending The Barn to friends who are looking for good service, gorgeous food and value for money.

TripAdvisor – May 2014

Birthday Treat at The Barn. On the evening of Friday 4th April myself and my friends got together to celebrate a birthday by having a meal at The Barn. I had not visited The Barn since it had become a restaurant. The Barn was chosen as it was in the centre of town, easy to get to and somewhere new to go. The moment I arrived even before entering I experienced a lovely atmosphere of people sitting outside drinking and talking in a relaxed and happy manner. Once inside I was shown upstairs to the restaurant. It was bright, open and had the feel of being inside an authentic country barn. A guitarist sat quietly playing music in the background which really added to the feel of the place. I ordered my food and was quickly attended to by Phillippe and his staff who were attentive and polite, nothing was too much trouble. The food was enjoyable and substantial, worth every penny. I really enjoyed the whole experience of eating in an informal setting that felt slightly different from the usual eating places. If you would like to try something less traditional than usual, good food at acceptable prices, then I would wholeheartedly recommend you visit The Barn.

TripAdvisor – April 2014

Lovely Easter Sunday Party – Perfect Venue. We got married at the Barn last Easter 2013. We loved it so much that we wanted to have another party there and do it all over again. So this year we held an anniversary/birthday party on Easter Sunday. The atmosphere at the Barn is so relaxed, the staff are helpful and efficient, and it is such great value for money. It is also such a lovely building and has a good garden area – which the children loved! It is also secure for the children as the garden is gated. Janet and Philippe are so helpful and efficient and give their honest opinions and suggestions. They cater for your budget. The food was lovely and there was plenty of it. We have had lots of lovely comments about the Barn from our family and friends – that we have decided to book again for next year! Thank you once again to Janet, Philippe and the team at the Barn for making our party fab!

TripAdvisor – April 2014

To all at the Barn. Yvonne Roberts and friends visited your establishment friday evening 4th April and loved it. Like a lot of local people of a certain age we had not been in since the 70s/80s when we danced the night away. we will most certainly recommend you to all. We received excellent service without fuss or question, prices very fair and the feel of the whole place has made us want to return (and we shall). Definitely no complaints from us (faultless). Wishing you all continued success.

Sincerely Anne Campbell for R Roberts and friends.the – April 2014

Excellent all round! Sunday 3 course dinner. We visited this restaurant for the first time and we were extremely impressed. No complaints at all. Clean tidy restaurant, food lovely and the best thing of all were the staff. My mum and I spent around 3 hours enjoying our three courses followed by coffee and mints and were not rushed at all. The male and female members of staff were very friendly and extremely efficient and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant to anyone, and would definitely return if in the area again. Thank you once again to the kind and welcoming staff today.

TripAdvisor – March 2014

Excellent dinner. Having organised a Christmas party at the Barn, the Barn very kindly gave me a Β£40-off voucher to use on its a la carte menu. The dinner and service were excellent. A complimentary sample of breads to start was a nice touch, and then the pate, burger and toffee apple crumble that followed were excellent. We will keep coming back to this lovely pub.

TripAdvisor – March 2014

Choice and value. After first using the old Elizabethan Ban 41 years ago, the location and quality of this has improved over the years to this excellent quality we had today. This is the second year that we have used the location to celebrate our anniversary and a shared birthday with dear friends. Food choice is great and excellent value for a high quality three course meal. The staff are excellent, friendly and provide a friendly service in a high quality manor. Would recommend. Have also used previously as an excellent venue after a pleasant event at the assembly hall for either drinks or a meal.

TripAdvisor – March 2014

A lovely meal! I came to The Barn for a meal for the first time today, having visited the bar on previous occasions numerous times. I order the calamari to start, followed by chicken fajitas and a chocolate brownie for desert (quite a large lunch I know!). I found the calamari both perfectly crispy and the squid spot on, the accompanying sauce added extra flavourful that really finished the dish off. My main course, chicken fajitas, is one of my favourite dishes. The flavour of the chicken and vegetables was lovely and the portion was very reasonable. My favourite part of the meal however was dessert, the chocolate brownie was absolutely superb. I’m a real lover of chocolate and this warm chocolate brownie and ice cream really hit the mark. I think I would of ordered another helping if I wasn’t mid way through a 90 day fitness program! All in all my meal was lovely and before I forget to mention, the service was timely and very pleasant. I shall certainly be coming back to The Barn soon.

TripAdvisor – February 2014

Amazing food and wine! My boyfriend and I visited The Barn a couple of weeks ago for a meal, and we weren’t disappointed. I had a prawn salad starter which was huge, and had lovely flavours. My boyfriend had the moules which he loved. For main course we both had steak and they were cooked to perfection, with a wonderful white wine sauce. I had the Baileys cheesecake for dessert and he had the apple, toffee and pecan crumble, which although didn’t look like a typical crumble, was delicious too. We had a really nice bottle of Lebanese (unusual!) wine to wash it all down. The place is immaculate, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable and we will definitely be returning!

Just come home from a valentines meal out at the barn! Both me and my partner were very impressed with the food, service and atmosphere!

Wonderful Valentines meal. We had a lovely valentines meal, the food was delicious, especially the mushroom and goats cheese starter and the pork on a bed of leeks which was cooked to perfection. The staff, were polite, friendly and helpful. A nice touch with the meal was a complimentary glass of bubbly and chocolates. There was a live guitarist, which added to the already pleasant ambience. Highly recommend.

Romantic Valentine’s Meal – excellent. Excellent romantic Valentine’s meal – defying the storm we had a superb dinner at the Barn. Whenever we go there they always make us feel very welcome. Service is friendly and efficient but never smothering. The drinks were prompt, my steak was great and the mushroom pancake was delicious. As Barn card holders we also had free sparkling rose. Lovely dessert. Really good meal. We’ve been regular customers for many years, had lots of good times there – their Xmas day lunch is always a hit. Highly recommended – looking forward to our next visit.

Excellent Service! Great Food, one of the best in town! We regularly go to The Barn and love the food at atmosphere! We’ve travelled around the world and ate in top restaurants and we can’t beat The Barn for service, food quality and value for money! The staff are always friendly and will always fit us in at the last minute! Their loyalty card is a great idea too! We’re looking forward to our ‘free’ meal by using it soon! We’ve taken our families here and both really enjoyed the food and have returned without us and recommended friends! The black pudding starter was one of the best starters we’ve ever had! Thank you to everyone at The Barn for making our ‘Date Nights’ special!

Excellent value and service. Came here for a pre-theatre dinner. It really was first class and amazing value. For Β£8.95 I had calamari followed by moules. A huge bowl of moules and we had finished our meal within an hour of ordering and made the theatre with minutes to spare. Service very slick.

Perfect food. The Barn is a very warm welcoming place the staff and atmosphere was great and the food was very good. The pate was the best I’ve tasted in a long while and the burgers and curly fries are to die for and the baileys cheesecake was so good I could eat more pieces and the baileys latte just topped off the meal

Friends get together. My work colleagues and we were celebrating a birthday as well as our belated Christmas get together. Looking for somewhere in Tun Wells we decided to book the Barn as I had arranged a Christmas meal there for others at my work place. The staff were very friendly & polite and we received excellent service, the meal was very reasonably priced and all our meals were very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant as it is a great welcoming venue for friends & family to meet.

Lovely Sunday lunch. We enjoyed a very pleasant Sunday lunch at the Barn in Tunbridge Wells, the service was excellent with friendly attentive staff. The food choices were good and we decided to keep it simple, just a good Sunday roast with soup to start with and two great puddings. Lovely. Well done The Barn

New Years Eve Party. Had a fantastic 5 course meal and New Year’s Eve disco. Great food including whole lobster, and champagne to toast in the new year! Service, disco and atmosphere were excellent. Fantastic value also. It was a New Year’s Eve success. Going again next week for my husband’s birthday!

Worth every penny. We had a brilliant time at the Barn Xmas Party! We were a party of eight and being pretty difficult in that one of the guests didn’t turn up – and they didn’t charge us. The staff were also extremely patient when no-one could remember their menu choices or decide who was driving. The disco and food were also brilliant. We can’t praise them enough. Roll on the next event – perhaps they could run a 3-course meal with disco once a month? We don’t want to wait until next Xmas!

Highly Recommend Pre-Theatre Menu. Four of us were going to the Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on a cold wet Tuesday evening in November and were looking for somewhere to eat and would highly recommend a visit to The Barn, where they offer an excellent 2 Course Pre-Theatre Menu for Β£8.75 which had plenty of choice including meat, fish and vegetarian options as well as the full a la carte menu, which was also very reasonably priced. We were given a warm welcome by friendly Staff in the beamed Restaurant which had a lovely fire burining. The food was freshly cooked, was full of flavour, absolutely delicious and plentiful and the House Red Wine was superb, there were linen napkins on the table and the service was excellent. We all left The Barn very happy and a good time was had by all. In fact we were so impressed by everything at the Barn, that we returned there for lunch the following day with some other Friends and again received the same excellent service and delicious food. Both lots of Friends and ourselves loved The Barn experience and is now definitely our favourite place to eat.

TripAdvisor – November 2013

Very good place to meet in central Tunbridge Wells. Met a friend here yesterday. A great find. Well located in the centre of the town and its shops, near the station. We had burgers, tasty and good value. Cheese for dessert was good, and the Harvey’s bitter was nectar. Service was friendly. For Β£40 for two people I think this would be hard to beat here. I’ll definitely be coming again.

Thanks for the recommendation. Friends of ours recommended The Barn at Tunbridge Wells after hearing we were going to be visiting the area and we were so pleased we followed their advice. We started out with drinks in the Bar where the welcome was friendly and warm. We then decided to eat in the upstairs restaurant rather than the bar as it was a special treat for our daughter. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and well set up and not over crowed with tables. Service was quick and friendly and at no time were we made to feel rushed, we were given plenty of time to peruse the menu and chat. My daughter and I opted for the Homemade Pate with Melba Toast as a starter which was absolutely delicious with a plentiful supply of the toast. The Main Course’s were just as delicious with the Rump Steak cooked to perfection and very tender and extremely tasty, the Salmon Topped with Pesto was nicely cooked and very moreish and the Homemade Burger was my daughter decided everything you required of a burger being thick, juicy and full of flavour with a great choice of toppings. We then rounded the meal off with a delicious Eton Mess full of fresh raspberries and a Divine Chocolate Brownie and Vanilla Ice Cream. All in all a wonderful recommendation and will definitely return next time we are in the area.

Wedding anniversary celebration. To celebrate my parents golden wedding anniversary we had a family get together. We were a party of 25 and from previous experience of such gatherings I was expecting a drop in service levels – how wrong I was. The staff were absolutely fantastic – there was always someone in attendance (to take drink orders, clear the table or check everything was ok ) without ever being intrusive. The food and drink was great and at a very reasonable price. I would recommend The Barn whole heartedly.

Amazing!! Went to The Barn today for lunch with my husband. We had a lovely, pleasant meal in the conservatory and found the welcome we received, food on our plates and price of everything was fantastic!! The burger I had was very tasty and my husband had a cheese pizza which was huge and cooked perfectly! Thank you for a lovely lunch which we really enjoyed and cannot wait to return!

Atmospheric Restaurant in a busy bar . Great food and excellent service at this busy location. The restaurant is upstairs and on a fine night the bar and grounds outside are heaving.The food is very well presented and very tasty and fresh and served with a smile and unobtrusive service. Makes a wonderful change from the chains all around it.Well worth a visit but book in advance

Friendly and welcoming. We come here once a fortnight to meet as a group and have a table reserved. The staff are always friendly. We generally only drink but will try the food soon!

Good venue, Good food. I’m a regular at The Barn, especially on a Summer’s evening, where you can sit outside and enjoy the ambience of the superbly appointed garden. The restaurant upstairs lays on food to a good standard although not spectacular. On the whole, this is one of the finer evening venues in Tunbridge Wells. It can get busy on a Friday or Saturday night, but due to the extensive outside area, this never seems to be too much of a proble. The staff are all attentive, friendly and prompt with their service.

Brill, fab wonderful place, food amazing. Absolutely wonderful place. We had our wedding ceremony and reception June 2012, from start to finish Philippe and his staff did everything possible to make our day as special as possible, Philippe’s wife Janet was so helpful and friendly and was always available and did so much to help me with our plans. Our wedding food was absolutely amazing. We attended The Barn for our 1st year Wedding Anniversary meal and again they didn’t disappoint our food was wonderful so tasty. Our top top favourite place. Thanks The Barn Nik and Dave πŸ™‚

Great Pub. I frequent this pub often and find the service and the hospitality very welcoming, I hear the food is very nice definitely worth a visit. The Pub itself is a little off the beaten track but only slightly looks very impressive from the outside with its little garden in the centre of town VERY NICE

Great venue. My niece had booked the barn for a surprise 50th birthday for my sister and her friend who was 50 too. Philippe and Laura the managers were great and made sure our evening went well which it did. We had 53 guests and choose the set menu for Β£16.95 .The waiter came round and asked us individually how we would like our steaks cooked. The portion sizes were good and what’s more all the puddings were homemade. I would recommend this venue for parties and weddings. You can park outside the restaurant or there is a car park nearby. We had a brilliant evening thanks to Philippe and all his staff. Keep up the good work.

Good meal. Out for our first meal in Tunbridge Wells. Found this place after asking for directions. Worth the hassle of asking. Very pleasant atmosphere. Polite & friendly staff. All the courses were well designed. Light, fulfilling. Nice drinks, whole experience very good value for money. Interior very nicely designed, warm and cosy, considering how bitingly cold it has been. Recommend for anybody, families etc.

Great venue for our surprise party. We booked the barn for a surprise 50th birthday party and had the exclusivity of the restaurant. Phillipe was above and beyond helpful with catering to our parties needs even when changing people’s choices at the last minute. The venue itself is cosy and welcoming and it was a lovely size for our group of 51. Laura was excellent on the night at sorting everything out and making sure everyone was served efficiently and that everyone’s needs were met. We opted for the 3 course party menu for Β£16.95 and the food was excellent. Everyone was amazed at the quality of the food which was all presented beautifully. All of the staff were attentive, friendly and professional and made our evening one to remember. If you are looking for a venue for your party, look no further, the barn is the place for you.

Superb Food In a Beautiful Surrounding! Had a wonderful experience with all the family on Mothers Day! We booked after having had verbal recommendation from friends that live in the Tunbridge Wells area, assuring us that our trek from Rainham, Kent would not end in disappointment and guess what……they were completely right! The place itself is stunning with a lovely cosy warm atmosphere and the service was first class with staff attending to us at all times. The food was lovely especially the roast which was nice and hot and exceeded my expectations! I am always open minded when I see the occasional bad review on a place and now realised that that its always best to go with the other 98% especially in this case when the majority are rating this establishment so highly! I have also learnt that there are people that go out of their way to slag-off a place and are of the nature that would never be pleased with anything, anywhere at anytime! My personal advice would be to try this place as we did and I am sure you will have a similar experience to us and will be joining us in deservedly giving them the 5 stars they have certainly earned!

Sunday Lunch – excellent. Went to the restaurant for a Sunday lunch with the family including young kids. The staff were very attentive, patient to our situation and were extremely adaptable to the menu with us over the top parents and wanting to know all the food that goes in our children’s mouths. Great atmosphere, really nice choice on the menu. Good value for money. Will be doing it again.

TripAdvisor – March 2013

Excellent meal. My husband and I visited Tunbridge Wells to do some shopping and wanted to eat out. We found this restaurant on the off chance and we were so happy. The food was wonderful and all home cooked. We had the 3 course menu which included coffee and could not fault a single thing – we feel it was the best meal we had experienced in a long time. The waitress was really helpful and was prepared to ask the chef if there were any desserts I could have in view of an egg allergy and she came back within moments with more than one suggestion. We will definitely visit again.

Great Lunch, glad we found this place. Very nice friendly pub / restaurant tucked off the main road. Great food and well priced. Had lunch here with friends, we all loved it. Have now got one of their loyalty cards as I will be returning. Good outside space and conservatory area. We ate upstairs in the restaurant, full of character and friendly helpful staff

Best restaurant in town. We had our 1st wedding anniversary meal which came complimentary with booking our wedding at the venue. The wedding day itself was amazing and we could not have asked for more. The guests were all complimenting the food and the buffet was great. The staff were really attentive and Phillipe and Janet were a really great help with organising everything. Almost like having a free wedding planner. The meal on our anniversary was lovely I had the shashlik lamb which was cooked to perfection. My husband had the chicken mixed grill which he couldn’t fault. We both had desert which finished us off and we left with very full stomachs. I would always recommend The Barn for weddings or just for a meal out.
