Stumbled on this place whilst stopping over in Royal Tunbridge Wells. Excellent food and even better hospitality by Will and the team. Given they haven't been open long they have done an excellent job. Thoroughly recommended

Whether you are looking to enjoy a quick bite and a pint, or to indulge in a two or three course meal with a nice bottle of wine from our extensive list, we will certainly have something to please & our friendly team will look after you whatever the occasion. At The Guinea our menu is designed around classic British dishes with a modern take and we serve food all day, every day of the week.
