Staff lovely and helpful; outside area well spaced and makes you feel comfortable in a Covid world, and the food and drink are wonderful. And if it’s still on the menu you should absolutely try the sour cherry and amaretto ice cream!! I’ve been coming...here on and off for 30+ years it’s always been good but never better than it is now.More

We visited this pub for lunch with another couple. Friendly welcome from the staff. You can eat in the pub or on a warm and covered terrace. Simple menu with traditional pub grub plus some new thinking. The food was delicious, hot and high quality....Thomas was a professional and entertaining waiter. Thank youMore

I’ve been here 6 times now, always amazing food, lovely staff, very enjoyable visits. 10000000% recommend. Only downfall is can’t run a tab if you’re in the snug/ cave. Even if you ask to leave a card behind the bar. This isn’t enough obviously to...not visit again of course will be back many many more times. Just tricky when you’re ordering food to share as a group and drinks, and going to be there for quite a few hours. I understand the reason that they’ve had people up and leave without paying which is awful. But still think it should be either pay now/ leave a card. Let the customer have the option. Hopefully they will change this rule in the future to make it easier for customers visiting with friends! :)More

Absolutely fabulous lunch in one of the private dining rooms. Everything was organised perfectly for our small festive celebration. The food was exceptional and the service discreet and super efficient. A hidden gem nestling in The Common and definitely streets ahead of the obvious corporate...competition.More

I have stayed in many hotels in Tunbridge wells and this was the first time at Mount Edgcumbe I have to say it is without doubt one of the best hotels in the area. Service was excellent from start to finish and the accomodation was...fabulous. The room was impeccable, very tastefully decorated and everything was immaculate. I was hugely impressed The bathroom too was perfect in every way I also ate in the restaurant and again service was superb and the quality of the food very good All in all a great experience and I shall certainly be staying againMore
