Garfo Douro, Tonbridge, 7 September 2018

I have been so excited about writing this review and sharing with you my really lovely evening at Garfo Douro. My friend and I were very kindly invited by chef Jose and the Garfo Douro marketing manager Zoe to come and see and, of course, taste what all the fuss is about. If you haven’t heard, it’s very popular.

The Dovecote, Capel, 2 September 2017

The Dovecote is hidden away on the road between Tudeley and Capel, almost blending into a row of cottages.  Mr EAT and I had a date night and as I was willing to drive, we decided to try somewhere further afield, new to us and somewhere that I hadn't heard any of you discuss.  This very welcoming and homely pub was a pleasant surprise.

Saltwaters, High Street, Tonbridge, 22 November 2016

It's Friday which as well as the end of the week, means FISH!  The tradition of eating fish on Fridays stems from religion but fish and chips is a national favourite, enjoyed day in, day out around the country.  I was kindly invited to dine in Saltwaters, and so my two children & I visited for our fish supper.  We were pleasantly surprised by what we found.  [...]

A little birdie told me….all about Finch House, Tonbridge

Tonbridge has a great deal of energy at the moment and some of that is thanks to the foodie scene and the people who are taking a leap of faith and going for it.  Daron Goldfinch was one of those people four and a half years ago. If you hadn't already realised from the name, Daron is the man behind Finch House, the café that brightened up our High Street & kick started the boom that we're now enjoying.  Despite the growth of Tonbridge's café culture since then, Daron has managed to stave off competition and remain a stalwart on our High Street[...]

Ticking a lot of boxes – The Bakehouse at 124, Tonbridge

The deadline to nominate for the Kent Life & Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards is looming - 7 August.  So far I've covered the categories 'Newcomer of the Year' and 'Café of the Year' as Tonbridge has plenty of potential nominees for these categories. On or around Tonbridge High Street we have some lovely independent shops doing their bit to promote food & drink too. 'Gorgeous George' sells wines & spirits and would be eligible for 'Independent Food or Drink Retailer of the Year', as would Ian Chatfield The Butchers, a reliable & ve[...]

Beyond the Grounds, Tonbridge, 28 June 2016

It's hot isn't it?!  Mustn't grumble though...keep drinking they say.  So grab a glass of something, sit down and have a little read about Beyond the Grounds.I went into Beyond the Grounds expecting just a café but after speaking to the founder & manager, Jennie Kenny, I realised that there is much more to this riverside spot than meets the eye. [...]

Beyond the Grounds – a Kent Life & Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards winner?

As you know, this blog was borne out of the fact that Tonbridge has been regaining its mojo thanks to the plethora of new eating places we have now. Just in case featuring on my blog isn't recognition enough (ahem), over the coming weeks I am going to be highlighting places that you might like to nominate for categories in the Kent Life & Kent on Sunday's prestigious Food & Drink Awards 2016. Wouldn't it be GREAT to have some Tonbridge winners?[...]

Gaab Kao, Tonbridge, 2 May 2016

I took my friend out for dinner for her 40th birthday (for the record, she's older than me) and as she loves Thai food, the new Thai restaurant in Tonbridge, Gaab Kao, was an obvious choice.  We were so excited but, left feeling rather underwhelmed...  Gaab Kao - 117 High Street, Tonbridge[...]
