A well decorated, quirky interior and a great garden. Good atmosphere and very pleasant staff. The food was good but we were a group of over 30 who had prebooked a buffet mid week. Considering the bill would of been over £750 there was little to show for it especially when it came to dessert!

Tried some alfresco dining, haven't been for a couple of years, Food was very nice and portions were very generous. Prices were also reasonable. Downsides were that we had to order at the bar like some cheap cafe, and they brought the complete order in one go, as if the chef was in a hurry to go home ☹️. So... More

Attended a company dinner with a large party of employees and spouses. We preordered our meal and everything was perfect from the appetizers to the deserts. The young lady that took care of our party was perfect. Attentive but not intrusive. Very nicely prepared ribeye steak. Excellent sticky toffee pudding. Nice selection of wine. They also have a great pub... More

About 27 years ago I went on a 1st date with my husband when this place was called La Galloche. It has different owners now I think and we have been back several times recently for dinner and lunch. Each time has been a pleasure. It is so nice to feel genuinely welcome by staff. Food is delightful. Atmosphere still... More

Tunbridge Wells is very well provided with Sunday lunch venues but this one went to the top of my list.
