I hired the grey lady for my birthday in January and it was brilliant- Carlos and Lydia were both incredibly helpful, as were all the other members of staff. I would highly recommend the venue and be looking to hire it again for next year!

No reservation, or expectations. Got there just at the end of Lunch service. Our table of seven was accommodated without any problem. Really good food and great service. Definitely recommend and will visit again.

Well words fail me. What an evening we had here. The food was excellent as was the service. Added bonus was that it was jazz evening as well. Would recommend this fantastic restaurant and was a great way to start our bank holiday weekend with our family

For the best night with the best music & reasonable food & wine go here upstairs to the Local & Live Paul Dunton sessions. The 4 acts are usually totally different but we've enjoyed all 16 we've seen so far. They vary from solo guitar singer, to rock to orchestral but all very professional. When Paul's own band are playing... More

The food and staff are fantastic and to top the bill the music is always brilliant. A great place for the late 30s upwards . Good value for money and superb choice of food. Worth every penny and is now one of my locals . Best music and dining in Tunbridge Wells
