Tonbridge Foodie News!

Thanks for all your help over the weekend with my Mediterranean veg soup question - look out for the next review so see what that's all about!  I have been very quiet I know but I am still trying to bring you news of the foodie goings on in Tonbridge - some of the news I'm not allowed to disclose yet (so hard!!) and others, I'm just waiting to hear final details.

Bring a Friend February is back for 2018!

You might remember that I ran this last year and I'm running it again because the ethos behind it is still so important.    The idea is very simple.  If you're meeting friends or family during the month of February (or anytime really), why not try somewhere that you haven't been before and send me a photo?  There are still lots of places for me to try on the High Street so I'm sure there are for you too.  And it doesn't have to be in Tonbridge; it could be in the vicinity as well.

“It only takes a minute girl”….well maybe 5…

Name that tune and artist! Awards really help to boost a business - it's recognition from patrons and peers; it spreads the word which helps to generate revenue for, not only the winner, but other local businesses too; and it's just a good old fashioned pat on the back, a gold star for everyone involved in making those doors open every day.

A leep of faith, 65mm Coffee, Tonbridge Old Fire Station

Yesterday Eat Around Tonbridge launched “Bring a friend February!” where you introduce a friend from near or far to somewhere new in Tonbridge.  And why not 65mm coffee?  Ensconced in The Old Fire Station, it receives rave reviews on social media, is always busy and many say serves 'the best coffee in Tonbridge'. Tonbridge born David Leeper, the founder of 65mm alongside his partner Jade Derrick (65mm named as such because of their love of old films & picture houses), aren’t just chancing their luck.  David knows his stuff; in fact he[...]

*** ‘Flexible working’ jobs here!! ***

Happy Halloween!  I don't have any spooky offerings this week on the jobs' board but I would ask that you use your imagination when it comes to some of the roles on offer - the employers are very keen to fill their vacant positions and are open to suggestions about flexible working.  So please don't be scared off by a role that says 'full-time' -  contact employers and sound them out about working school hours, a job share, part-time work etc.New jobs are below - the full list is at the Eat Around Tonbridge Jobs' Board.Tonbridge Old Fire Station, To[...]

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[...]
