This restaurant never fails to amaze, and it's a great disappointment that it's closing due to the redevelopments. Tunbridge Wells needs a restaurant that had this individualty. Always a friendly atsphere,staff very customer focused. Great menu choices. Sad day for Tunbridge Wells.

Sorry to see it close to make way for redevelopment. Where will we have breakfast now? Thanks to all the staff who have served and cooked for us over the years.

The waitresses are dressed in old fashioned black and white. You are waited upon which is really nice. The choice of food is vast and the food is delicious. Unfortunately they will be moving from there which is a real shame. Fabulous place.

Just learned yesterday that the Nutmeg Tree will close shortly due to the redevelopment of RVP and does not have another site. What a shame! Great little tea room. Where do I get my bacon and sausage baguette now?

Stopped here for some lunch, was happy to seat us along with our 1 year old and push chair. Food was great although maybe a little pricey and the Assam tea was lovely, staff were the most attentive I have had for a long time...More
