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

As you have highlighted a number of issues I wanted to investigate these before responding, not least because when we get things wrong and I accept on occasions we may get things... More

Trying out new places to eat in Tunbridge Wells as we have just moved here. The reviews for The Barn seemed fairly good so thought we'd give it a try. First off, the atmosphere seemed not that great when we got there, very average. When we looked at the menu we should have just left! There was lots of choice... More

We went for dinner for my wife's birthday and I can say that I was very impressed. My Wife had a three course meal for £12 and it was a big soup starter, a large main meal and great desert. I had a massive burger that was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful and made it an amazing... More

We came to the barn for our complimentary 1st wedding anniversary dinner. It was so nice to come back to the barn. As always the place had a warm and inviting atmosphere, staff are lovely and helpful, Phillipe the manager welcomed us back like old friends. The food was good and(had we been paying)very good value.

Description
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.
