I always enjoy my time in the gatehouse as it has good music and atmosphere on a saturday night. You can usually find somewhere to sit aswell. The cocktail list is great and is something for everyone. Even the virgin daiquiri is lovely for when you are driving. It has definitely improved since changing from The Slug and Lettuce and...

Really enjoyed the Tonbridge Beer tasting. Informative, interesting, great beers and good company. We eat here fairly regularly too and the food is good. I love the tapas.

Came for late lunch. They always have 4 ales on tap, 1 at least seems to constantly rotate. Up to 10 craft beers/ciders. Lovely brains bitter and camden pale ale. Had the tapas plates and swet potatoe fries. All were very good especially the croquettes. Have had dinners before which were decent.

We had our staff do here last night and working in the same industry we know how annoying it can be with a big group that are drunk and rowdy. But Natalie and Ocean were absolutely fabulous, made us umpteen cocktails and they were all delicious! Thank u so much girls you were great and very patient with us 🤗
