It is such a falling fatality today that the proliferation of convenience food outlets seems to constantly overshadow the tea room or the greasy spoon. In the quest for a respite after the night before the latter used to be a safe harbour for those looking to recover and refuel. The former tea room however was a respite from the... More

Lovely oasis in a sea of fast food. Nicely presented, very friendly staff and excellent food and drinks. Impeccably clean, with a reasonably good menu choice. Breakfast coffee comes in your own pot rather than just a small cup. The special breakfast is ample for most people and is very tasty.

Spotted this cafe amongst the fast food outlets. It's a little oasis that has great food & friendly service. The staff wore typical old time dress which immediately gave it a splendid atmosphere. There are current 4 different large rooms so you can choose your style, from Nans sitting room, Regency, cafe red, to the floral room at the front.... More

We have been visiting the Nutmeg Tree for many years and can recommend it as a comfortable and friendly place to eat in Tunbridge Wells. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient and the food has never disappointed. We usually have a lovely breakfast before the shops open as the restaurant is open at 8am. That said it is equally... More
