We're approaching Christmas and the end of another year - it's flown by hasn't it! It's been a great year for Tonbridge and the Eat Around Tonbridge blog.

The façade looks fantastic and Dan talked me through the layout today - a 'theatre' kitchen (you can see chefs at work - middle pic below), a separate bar area at the front where yo[...]
The Tonbridge scene continues to grow with the revival of The Rose Revived at the weekend & the arrival of The Clockhouse (hoping for March), Fuggles (summer opening) and Creams Factory (also planning to open in March) this year. Creams Factory at 160 High Street If you[...]
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas - I was imagining you scoffing mince pies, glugging mulled wine, eating cornflakes with Baileys whilst planning your long walks on Boxing Day!
