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 30 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 makes 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.

Excellent value, good service and good food in a character setting close to the station. Good choice of real ales.

Best Mixed Grill we have ever had!

Our first visit to The Barn and we had a lovely lunch, probably the best Mixed Grill we have ever had. Beautiful building with many different spaces to sit in , the staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was good quality and well cooked and presented. We will certainly visit again when we visit Tunbridge Wells.

Little gem of a find

What a find. A lovely pub / restaurant with a beautiful garden.
Perfect for a summer evening. We had some drinks outside but had reserved a table upstairs in the main restaurant. The food was lovely. We had three courses from the a lq carte menu. Food is presented lovely and really tasty and hot. Service was also good.. You can eat outside and in the conservatory but you can only have the bar menu.

Will definitely be returning.

What an excellent place

Cannot say enough about this excellent place. The restaurant has a spacious feel and traditional beams for atmosphere. The food was extremely good, with extra care taken for our one coeliac guest. The ‘mocktail’ downstairs in the bar was excellent too for one of our teetotal guests. The coffees after our meal were fantastic – and great value too. The service was perfect. The table for six was ideal too, v-big enough to give us space and compact enough for us to be able to converse across it. 5* and a very strong recommendation without any hesitation.

What a gem!

The Barn is probably one of the best pubs in Tunbridge Wells. I’d like to call it a ‘four seasons pub’ – always welcoming. And always a seat. (do not sit on my seat in the orangey though)
