The kitchen was slow. 15 min wait between dishes. Food was great but little portions. A bit expensive for the quantity received.

Had a fantastic evening to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Will definitely be back! Staff are so friendly and helpful. P.S the Pimms pavlova is so good, such a good idea!

We really enjoyed our meal and lovely position on the sunny terrace. Food was lovely and the 2 course lunch menu reasonably priced. The only difficult thing was access with a peak although staff kindly helped carry this up and down the stairs and steps

Stunning location and delicious food. Could have stayed all day. The staff are friendly, helpful and professional. One of the nicest places I’ve had the pleasure of eating at in a long time. Will definitely be back. Massive difference in service and food since we last went 7 or more years ago. It’s a gem of a place!!!

Thank you for another splendid Host a Roast this Sunday. My family had travelled a long way, some from Scotland and although they were all late, your team were very understanding. Katie was attentive and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The chefs deserve huge praise on perfectly cooked beef which was admired by all - one even being a fellow restaurant owner in the past! The portion sizes were very generous - but everything was so delicious every bit was eaten with joy! Thank you to all the team for a wonderful experience that we are very proud to show off when we host at The Beacon! Tanya

We had Lottie looking after our party, she was amazing. She was stealthily in and out of the room bringing in food and cleaning the table. She was incredibly polite and even more helpful throughout the day. The food and drink was incredible and the ease of organising an event there was second to none. I look forward to going back.

We booked the Celler Room for a family birthday get together with a crowd of very mixed ages. The room was perfect, the food (Sunday lunch) spot on and the service was great - attentive but discreet with our host (Justin?) being equally delightful with the 90yr old birthday girl and the young great grandchildren. Thank you for making it such an enjoyable afternoon. We will definitely be back and will recommend you to others.

A wonderful dining experience. In a class of its own. My family and I enjoyed a remarkable meal. The food was superb and the service was faultless. This is the hidden gem of Tunbridge Wells.

I was disappointed not to be offered the set menu or the free glass of wine 'Love Spring' offer that I emailed about when booking. This made a causal night out with girlfriends much more expensive than we had expected. Especially with the 12.5% compulsory service charge, which I would only expect in a London establishment. I personally like to be able to choose what I tip depending on how good the service has actually been. As a result we will not come as often in the future as we like too. The service was good and we all liked the decor. The Gin Tea was great. I was however disappointed with the pea soup that lacked seasoning and body and we were very disappointed with the honey crème brulee, which was almost curdled and the honey flavour did not come through at all. Our main courses were all lovely, especially my lamb, which was cooked to perfection.
