Interesting location in the old opera house in central Tunbridge Wells, worth a visit for at least a quick drink for a look inside. Menu has a lot of things on (maybe too much to choose from!) food arrives in good time and is of...More

Waited for nearly 10 minutes to be served, bar staff seemed oblivious as to who was waiting, when I pointed out my wait, the bar staff ignored me and turned to serve someone else. Never have I been made to feel less welcome.
