More Information About Thackerays - Tunbridge Wells
Thackeray's the Tunbridge Wells Michelin starred restaurant is set back on a green off the main London Road in the quaint Kentish spa town of Tunbridge Wells. Thackeray's occupies a Grade II-listed building of ancient floorboards and low ceilings.
Widely recognised as one the best restaurants in Kent, Thackeray’s - which gained a Michelin star in its first year of operation and currently holds three AA rosettes for its culinary expertise – is located in the home of 19th century writer and satirist William Makepeace Thackeray.
Richard Phillips, chef and co-proprietor, offers fine French cuisine, an elegant atmosphere and stunning surroundings to provide the ultimate dining experience. Moreover, he uses the best and freshest local ingredients where possible in his unique menus.
The house’s all white New England exterior is matched by its luxurious interior, with two low-ceilinged private dining rooms, a lounge with thrown chairs, and a candlelit gold leaf bar. Diners can also enjoy a tranquil environment and a taste of the orient in the outside Japanese terrace garden.
"Located in the centre of the spa town of Tunbridge Wells. The grade II listed buliding has stunning interiors and superlative food, wine and service that help create the magical and memorable dining experience." Giles Coren The Saturday Times
"Thackeray's is one of the most charming and stimulating restaurants I have seen outside London. The youth of those involved belies the professionalism with which it is run. The greeting is warm, the atmosphere enchanting whilst the food sparkles with flavour." Terry Durack The Independent on Sunday
"There is a clear, culinary intelligence at work here that understands how ingredients work together" Jay Rayner The Observer Magazine
