I am always on the hunt for family friendly pubs near Tunbridge Wells. Given that summer is fast approaching, I have put together a list of my favourite venues which have outdoor space for the kids to run around….
#1 Nevill Crest and Gun, Eridge
There is a relaxed atmosphere and lots of outdoor space with a tractor, swings and plenty of seating. For more information, have a look on the Nevill Crest and Gun website here.
#2 Cross Keys, Tunbridge Wells
Parents with children are welcome and very well kept baby change facilities are available, in addition to a beautiful lawned garden with play area away from the road and a gated patio.
The pub has an indoor play area for under 5’s with a selection of toys and books from 11am to 3pm, Monday to Friday during term time. For more information, visit the Cross Keys website here
We have a great choice of family friendly pubs near Tunbridge Wells!!
#3 The Poacher & Partridge, Tudeley
This pub’s food is fantastic and it even has its own wood fired oven for making perfect pizzas. A brand new children’s play area and outside bar opened today (Sunday 17th May 2015) which I will be reporting back on soon 🙂
#4 Little Brown Jug, Chiddingstone Causeway
The Little Brown Jug is an old favourite, opposite Penshurst train station on Chiddingstone Causeway. There is a very relaxed feel to this pub and the outdoor garden has plenty to keep the little ones occupied.
We have eaten here several times and enjoyed everything we have tried. It can be busy on the weekend (a good sign!) so make sure you book beforehand if you can. For more information on the Little Brown Jug, click here
#5 The Plough, Leigh
The Plough in Leigh is an independent family friendly pub near Tunbridge Wells which ticks many of the boxes for me – the food is good, it’s in a great countryside location, it has a lovely ‘English’ country pub feel to it and a superb garden and play area – perfect for summer!
During the summer months, The Plough is open all day (Tues to Fri) and after school teas are provided. Children can choose from a kids menu consisting of real but popular food or something from the main menu served as a half portion for half the price.
