Good music, cold food.
Feb 2020 • Couples
Visited recently and the music was great, we have been on previous occasions to see friends perform and have always enjoyed the venue and music. However the venue is let down by the food. The lady on duty in the music lounge was excellent, helpful, polite and attentive. The first course arrived and was excellent, tempura prawns, mmm. We both ordered the filet piedra, one without garlic. According to the menu this is served on a hot granite stone. Unfortunately first the gentleman who brought our order forgot which one had the garlic and secondly the food was on cold plates. Now I’m unsure if the food was not hot when put on the cold plates but before we had consumed a quarter of the meal it was cold to the point of being almost unpleasant to eat. That’s a real pity because the steak was cooked perfectly accompanied by a decent portion of fries but the whole experience was degraded by the lack of temperature. We will go back and try the downstairs restaurant and see if there is any improvement. Maybe if served on the hot granite stone as advertised the food would have maintained an acceptable temperature. Try harder guys it’s the only thing letting you down.

Shame about the food ...
Feb 2020 • Friends
The menu choice was good but the quality of the food was poor. Mashed potato with Sea Bass was somewhat unappealing! - it was all a bit tasteless. Everyone ate but no-one really enjoyed their meal. Atmosphere is good, live music is fun although don’t expect to have a conversation when it’s on! ... but ... there are breaks so it’s not overpowering. The whole vibe is aimed at 40 somethings, bit of dancing going on ... good for a group night out if you want something a bit different.

Difficult to find
Nov 2019
A friend booked a table at La Casa Vecchia, we walked up and down the pantiles looking for the restaurant before calling friends who had also struggled to find the place but who had arrived before us. The restaurant is signed the Grey Lady which is rather confusing. The table which was booked in advance included watching live music with our food, the food was delicious but our table unbekown to us was just off the dancefloor and when the band started playing, persons dancing made our seats uncomfortable as dancers would barge into our seats. The place was literally crammed and uncomfortable. We didn't wait to the end of the band and left after an hour.

On way home to London and stopped for light lunch
Aug 2019 • Couples
Friendly staff. Food was excellent. We chose two starters as tapas sharing, then both had a summer salad with strawberries, melon, feta cheese, mixed leaves and balsamic vinegar. High quality fresh food beautifully prepared. Finished with ice cream desserts. Great place, hope to visit again if we come to Tunbridge Wells again.

“Hun were too busy”
Apr 2019 • Couples
I phoned up to ask one of the waitress about a booking that had been reserved for a friend of mine on her first blind date. As you hear a lot of stories I proceed to ask the women if they had the service ask Angela which provides complete security for someone who feels uncomfortable or uneasy. After trying to ask the question and getting no response as she kept dipping in and out talking to other members of staff about orders. She proceeded to hang up as her felt it was too busy to answer a simple question that could prevent something serious. I’ve never in my life been spoken to so rudely by a member of staff or been hung up on by a company. Disappointed and disgusted in the service and certainly won’t be using the grey lady ever again.

Best food on trip
May 2018 • Friends
Canadian on tour of English gardens and Chelsea flower show. Tonight’s meal with five other trip-mates in the downstairs restaurant was the best meal of the trip. Pasta, salmon and all other meals were cooked perfectly. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend.

40th birthday party
Jan 2017 • Friends
I hired this venue for my 40th birthday party with my friend. The staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The actual venue was perfect, my band performed here and it was all set up for that. The food served was delicious and plenty of it. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking to hire somewhere, and the price was very reasonable as well. My 40th birthday party was a huge success so huge thanks to Lydia and the team.

Great music venue - Soul Kitchen
May 2016 • Friends
The music lounge is a great venue and I attend the Soul Kitchen rare vinyl soul night event 3rd Friday in the month. There is always a great crowd and atmosphere and the music is excellent. However, the barman needs to learn some customer service skills and smile!
