I’ve lived in Tunbridge Wells since 2016. I decided it was about time I share some of my favourite Tunbridge Wells places.

Food & Drink


Vittle and Swig is my favourite place to go for dinner in Tunbridge Wells. You’ll find it on Camden Road (opposite Next) serving contemporary British cuisine.

Saint John’s Yard is my favourite pub in Tunbridge Wells. We end up there most Sunday evenings after the evening service at St John’s Church.

But there are loads of other top drinking establishments – including one with its very own cave! Read more.


Chapel Place is a great little gin bar down the bottom of town. They have a huge selection of 122 gins – and counting. Fun fact, the owner (Andy) doesn’t like gin!

Lunch Spots

Basil is my favourite place to go for a quick lunch. There are two in Tunbridge Wells; one on Lime Hill Road (opposite Bill’s) and another up in St John’s.

Underground Gym is undoubtedly the best gym in Tunbridge Wells! I would definitely be a member if it wasn’t so far away from where I live.

Fortunately, there are loads of other great gyms to choose from. Click the link below to check out my favourite five.


Strops is the barbers that I go to. You’ll find them on Castle Street (next door to Cassidy’s Sports Bar). It’s £21 for a haircut or £23 for a skin fade.

But there are plenty of good barbers scattered around town. You’ll find four more suggestions by clicking the link below.
