Featured Tunbridge Wells Restaurants
1. The Twenty Six British, Modern restaurant in Tunbridge Wells 15a Church Road - TN4
“In an oasis for food”, this cosy branch of the Kent-based ‘I’ll be Mother’ group is the epitome of a “great local” serving some “genuinely exceptional cooking”. Chef Simon Ulph moved to Jackson Boxer’s new London venture, St Leonards, in June 2018, with Megs Buchanan stepping in at the stoves.
2. The Ivy Royal Tunbridge Wells British, Modern restaurant in Tunbridge Wells 46-50 High Street - TN1
“An Ivy outpost somewhere between ’‘Ivy Cafe’ Marylebone and the original in style” – this new spin-off from the famous Theatreland icon wins a better rep than some others: “the whole family enjoyed it and ambience was great”.
3. Hotel du Vin & Bistro British, Modern restaurant in Tunbridge Wells Crescent Road - TN1
A Grade II-listed mansion hosts this branch of the national chain, with a dining room that serves decent Gallic bistro fare. As usual with HDV, a big plus is “my sort of wine at a reasonable price”.
4. Thackeray’s French restaurant in Tunbridge Wells 85 London Rd - TN1
“A treat, every time”, say fans of this long-established Regency villa, which is well supported for its “beautiful, locally sourced food and a formal but charming atmosphere”. However ratings are dragged down by a sizeable minority who are “disappointed” by its performance generally: “Like Marmite: you love it or you hate it… we are in the latter category…”
