About The Barn

The Barn has been reconstructed from a centuries old Elizabethan Barn which was originally built in a Kent village and re-erected on its present site in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells some years ago. It has been erected in the original Kentish style with oak beams and columns throughout which creates a wonderful atmosphere.

There is also a delightful award winning courtyard garden adjoining the premises.

This lovely property has been privately owned by us for over 25 years and successfully managed throughout this time by our joint General Managers, Philippe and Janet Sorak.

In addition to the excellent food and drink and great value prices we are especially proud of our very friendly staff all of which, combined with “the barn” character, setting and decor make us a special place for a meal in our pretty air conditioned restaurant, or a drink or snack in our air conditioned rustic bar and beautiful new orangery.

You can also enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in our delightful garden which is heated for those cooler days and beautifully illuminated at night.

Free WiFi available in all areas.

Free Parking

We are delighted to advise you that we now have several free parking spaces adjacent to The Barn for the exclusive use of our customers. There is no time limit whilst visiting.

Good food, great service, lovely atmosphere. We stayed in Royal Tunbridge Wells for five nights & this was by far the best restaurant we tried. The service was excellent, the waiters were responsive & helpful. There was a good selection of food which was reasonably priced. The outdoor garden was surrounded by flowers & the upstairs restaurant had a great atmosphere with very modern, clean surroundings. Highly recommended.

TripAdvisor

Good food. There are 2 choices when you walk in. There is a pub with pub food – burgers, scampi, calamari, chilli con carne etc. And upstairs, there is a restaurant with more choices. There is also a special 2 or 3 course menu in the restaurant, which is worth it if you feel like having the starter/dessert. We had the Torbay sole and rump steak in the restaurant. Both dishes were nicely cooked and enjoyable.

TripAdvisor

Excellent value in fab surroundings. This restaurant is a little gem. It’s so well tucked away close to a busy area that you feel as if you’re in the country. The staff were attentive, pleasant and accommodating without being intrusive. The menu was varied but not overwhelming so it catered for all tastes. The general atmosphere was very comfortable. There is a bar downstairs which we didn’t use but it appeared to be very popular.
