I go here regularly with friends and with work for drinks and it is always a great atmosphere in the garden or 'orangery' glass roofed area. I thought I'd write a review as tried the food for the first time today and it was delicious! The burger was a great portion size and you could tell they had made them... More

What an amazing place to get married. The scenery itself was too beautiful. In regards to the service it was amazing, everything a Bride could hope for. Philippe and the team were so attentive to mine and my wife's needs making sure everything was perfect for our big day. We had constant communication with Janet who is behind the scenes... More

Great location and that is were it ends. Food basic, ours was served cold and no matter what we did the service slipped from there. Offered a free desert, but just not good enough. If you like drunks and well the basics go for it. Remember in a short walk there are much better options than this slop.

I am replying to this review as one of the owners of the business. Let me make it clear at the outset of this response that we do not, never have done and never will serve a customer who is drunk on our premises. Not only do we consider this morally wrong but it would be detrimental to us retaining... More

Catering for a series of large groups on a really busy day, the staff displayed great patience when a good number of the party were caught up in traffic delays and diversions and the food had to be kept on hold. This in no way impaired the quality or temperature of the meals when they did come and people loved... More

Many thanks for your review following your recent visit to The Barn. I am delighted that you enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. When you mention a "greenhouse” I am not sure whether you are referring to our orangery, which is part of the main building, or our patio garden as we do not have a greenhouse as such. Regardless...

We've just got back from our complimentary first wedding anniversary meal at The Barn. We don't live locally to Tunbridge Wells and haven't been back there since we got married.

Having had a great experience previously in the Bar, we thought we'd have a family gathering in the Restaurant. The service was abysmal: totally disinterested staff. Despite pre-ordering, we had to wait over an hour before the meals arrived. (admittedly, one of our party was about 15 mins late). Although the first to arrive were asked for drinks, the latecomers... More

A character pub restaurant centrally located with free parking adjacent in the evening and weekends. Privately owned and operated since 1992.In addition to the excellent food and drink at great value prices, we are proud of our very friendly staff, which combined with the ‘barn’ character setting and decor makes us a special place for a meal in our lovely air conditioned Grill restaurant, or a drink and snack in our air conditioned bar and conservatory.Enjoy a drink or snack in our delightful garden, sunny during the day, heated for those cooler days and beautifully illuminated by night.Our philosophy is "to serve freshly prepared food, using high quality raw materials at unbeatable prices."The restaurant menu has evolved over recent years, taking account of fashion changes and is based on grills and Mediterranean specialities. We have a great reputation for steaks, using only prime 28 day matured British beef.We cater for weddings and have a civil ceremony licence, and private parties.
