Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa
The Conservatory Restaurant at Calcot & Spa
Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Thackeray's is in a traditional Kentish weather-boarded Grade II listed building, overlooking the green on Tunbridge Wells. A former residence of author William Makepeace Thackeray, the building is more than 300 years old and is a virtual work of art itself. Odd angles, sloped ceilings and off-kilter stairways make it feel almost like something from a fantasy world. The restaurant offers a relaxed form of fine dining, free from pretension, applying classic European culinary philosophies to modern dishes. With a wide variety of menus, Head Chef Patrick Hill uses his immense knowledge, passion and creativity to craft ever-changing, seasonal menus to inspire and delight all tastes.
