85 London Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN1 1EA
This excellent restaurant was once the home of William Makepeace Thackeray. The comfortable airy dining room has crisp napery and modern artwork - defying its 17th century origins.

Starters might include the likes of 'Pan-fried Escalope of Foie Gras with a Roasted Potato Cake, Caramelised Apples and a Sweet Wine and Chive Sauce'; 'Pan fried Scallops with Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto' or Roulade of Smoked Salmon with a tian of Devon Crab'.

Mains perhaps 'Gloucester Old Spot 'four ways' with Black Pudding a Spiced Red Wine jus'; 'Poached Monkfish in Barolo Wine' or 'Fillet of Steak roast in a Wild Mushroom and Herb Crust'.

Finish with 'Fig Tart flavoured with Vanilla and Lemon '; 'Rhubarb and White Peach Mousse' or 'Raspberry Soufflé with Raspberry Sorbet'. Dishes are beautifully presented.

They have a very pleasant 'Japanese' terrace for outside eating.
