Just moments away from the charming Pantiles and at the bottom of the old High Street in Tunbridge Wells, The Place, a restaurant in a pretty doubled fronted Victorian building, celebrates British eccentricity and design.


The restaurant opened in July 2012 and is purposeful in its provision of a great British dining experience. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as morning coffee, afternoon tea and sweet treats from 7am. Ingredients are organic and locally-sourced, with meat supplied by renowned butcher Peter Speaight, just next door.

Head Chef James Lelew cooks up a storm in the kitchen every day, producing contemporary versions of classic dishes. Theres something to suit everyones taste and pocket, with starters ranging from 4 - 9.50, mains from 7.50 - 23.50 and desserts or cheese from 4 - 6.50.


Local interior consultant Polly De Luca was commissioned to design a warm and inviting ambiance for The Place. Vivienne Westwood inspired mismatched tweeds in rich colours are used on fabrics and furnishings, opulent chandeliers hang from the ceiling and exotic botanical fabrics adorn the walls.


The Place can seat 60 people and a further 16 in outdoor space, The Terrace, which is particularly popular on sunny days. For more information about The Place and to book call 01892 521 322 or visit www.theplacetunbridgewells.com.
