“Pete the owner has created an exceptional destination” in his two years at this “superbly located” re-launched local pub, whose outside terrace boasts brilliant views over Tunbridge Wells. With food that’s “fresh and beautifully cooked” plus “attentive” (and child-indulgent) staff, it’s a “rare, all-rounder”.
