Ate here for a Christmas party and was very impressed with the quality of the food. The smoked duck was nice and had a heady, woody flavour. The traditional turkey was cooked very well, with a beautifully rich sauce made from proper stock. The waiting staff coped very well with the rowdy demands of a large group. I look forward... More

Went for a meal in the brasserie this evening. The service was good and really friendly - the food was pleasant - the tempura oysters lovely. The sea bass was delicious. The moules really fragrant and yummy. The sticky toffee pudding was a huge hit. A really interesting selection of wines. What let the whole evening down was the temperature... More

Went here with my partner for a fantastic meal. I'd heard good things and it certainly lived up to it. I'm a huge seafood fan and the menu was brilliant. Our waiter was engaging, friendly and very knowledgable. He was a credit to the business. The food was relatively pricey but nothing more than you would expect for Tunbridge Wells.... More

Found sankey's on the off chance and has now become our favourite place to drink in Tunbridge Wells. Great range of wine and champagne; wide choice of fish dishes. A bit pricey but largely worth it.

We went to the bar and had food rather than downstairs in the brasserie because we had a dog.The food was lovely no complaints at all( we had fish and chips and a hulumi burger and chips). This place specialises in fish and I noticed the had fresh lobster in the brasserie. What impressed me most was the positive attitude... More

I've been dining with Sankey's since the days when Guy was at the Gate in Hildenborough and I can't understand why I have never written a review before. The standards over the years have been consistently high, but what has prompted me to write now is that several visits this year have confirmed that the present kitchen is on perhaps... More

Had planned to have seafood platter but couldn't believe how good the set menu was so went for that as we planned to come next day. Only disappointment was it was shut on Sunday and Monday (understandably so as the fish is so fresh &... More

I had heard good things about Sankeys but had not been until Saturday night. They really have got everything right. The food was delicious, the restaurant is very chilled and the waiting staff were excellent ( especially Nicky ) I absolutely loved this place and will go back again and again.
