We came across the Brecknock Arms by chance. It was raining heavily outside but very cosy inside, with 2 fires to sit in front of! We both chose the salmon with chicory which was really delicious and a treat for our taste buds. For dessert...More

Lovely laid back pub offering a nice variety of food, with varying specials. Have visited on several occasions and can always rely on a warm, friendly service and some very delicious food. It is evident how much owner Digby and his team value their customers...More

As already mentioned in the comments from everybody else from your table. You comments on the evening were particularly rude and patronising and you reviews one sided. You were asked to leave due to your attitude and rudeness. It was not only noted by myself...More

18 years I have been running pub and restaurants in Tunbridge Wells and I’ve never been treated so badly by customers. Your table was given away because you turned up 40 minutes late for your reservation. Then you walk in and just say champagne to...More
