We were a group of 16, so never an easy task to manage. However, the staff were delightful, really helpful and friendly......and the food was great. Made for a very happy party....can understand why this place is popular.

Return visit to the Hare. Group of 8 welcoming our new Vicar and wife to Tunbridge Wells. Main courses and desserts. Mains Of Cod, Lamb Shoulder, Haddock, Thai Curry and Chicken and Leek Pie. All excellent. Desserts of crumble, sticky Toffee pudding, Clementine Sponge all recommended. Staff excellent. Still one of the best pub restaurants in the area. Highly recommended.

Ny resolution to eat out more with our son. 1st attempt - wonderful. Very friendly, good service and fab food. So much so looks like it could be the venue for special birthdays this year. The Kedgeree Arancini balls a must try - delicious.

We live nowhere near but our family has met here numerous times over the years. The venue is delightful. Its like an old manor house with pictures all over the walls and odd different shaped rooms. We have been seated in most of the areas over the years. The staff have always been brilliant. They are all helpful and friendly... More

Been many times over the years and this time it was very good, almost excellent. Our food (mains of shoulder of lamb and steak) was great and the service very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere there always quite lively and although it is a big place it has several areas so doesn't feel too big. Better than my recent experiences at... More

Three of us for Sunday lunch - this was our first visit although we often use other Brunning & Price pubs and always find them good. Two of us had the roast beef and I had the mixed roast (a bit of beef and a bit of pork). Plenty of vegetables and the extra gravy I requested came straight away.... More

We lunched here with friends for the first time and will certainly return. Very pretty location by the green, although some difficulty finding a close parking place. The dining room is beautifully light, the menu good and the staff very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Very relaxing.

This establishment ticks all the boxes for me. When I lived in Rusthall ten years ago, I was a fairly regular customer but have not been back for over two years until recently. The food and the service were excellent in a warm and friendly environment. It is so refreshing to find a true to it's roots pub where you... More

Great food and very busy with great atmosphere but service too slow! Pre booked and pre ordered lunch for 14. Arrived at 1 starters weren't served until 2.50. We then waited a considerable time for our mains. Understand it was busy but rather defeats the point of pre ordering . Two of our party had to leave before dessert. Think... More

We have been a few times, it is just round the corner from my Mum. It is a lovely atmosphere, well run and good, sensible cooking. Yesterday was no exception, with a large plate of Roast Beef or Roast turkey with all the trimmings. Very good service and it was just about £20 a head, so no complaints at all.

Thank Guy L
