The Kentish Hare

The Kentish Hare is a family friendly pub nestled in rural Tunbridge Wells, offering outstanding food from chefs and brothers Chris and James Tanner.

The brothers opened their first restaurant named Tanners in 1999 in Plymouth – the start of a thriving family enterprise, which includes the Barbican Kitchen housed in the world-famous Plymouth Gin distillery.

The Kentish Hare’s menu has included dishes such as beef cheek with mash, marrowbone gratin and kale; and salmon teriyaki with egg noodle, chilli, mouli and bok choi.

If you’re  in there and you see chicken wings on the menu, go for them. Don’t even think about.

It’s also renowned for an enticing range of meat and fish, such as fillet steak medallions with champ potato and mushroom brandy cream; or whole lemon sole with brown shrimp butter, purple sprouting broccoli and almonds.

Chef Bobby Brown is a wizard in the kitchen, calm, collected and skilled. He leads his team with firm, yet understanding hand.

The pub has specifically selected a range of superb wines, beers and spirits to match the menu. It aims to deliver the very best fresh, local food.
