SquareMeal Review of The Kentish Hare

Following the success of Tanners Restaurant and The Barbican Kitchen in Plymouth, Roux brothers’ protégés Chris and James Tanner have dipped their toes into the world of gastropubs with a new venture in Kent. Situated midway between Tonbridge and Royal Tunbridge Wells, what was the old Hare & Hounds at Bidborough has been transformed into a dashing new venue called The Kentish Hare. The revamped Victorian building houses two bar/lounge areas (one dispensing local ales and tapas-style plates), while the main restaurant occupies a traditional vaulted conservatory with its own terrace. The kitchen has been designed from scratch and the menu features lots of produce from Kent and the surrounding area – from whole grilled lemon sole and West Country crab salad to maple glazed pears with a Kentish Blue cheese sauce.

We held a Birthday celebration at The Kentish Hare on Saturday and couldn't fault it (not easy for me!).   The Venue was warm and delightful, the service was friendly and attentive and as for the food - well that was in a league of its own - both beautiful to look at and delicious to eat!   We even had the opportunity of meeting James Tanner at the end of our mean and what a nice guy!   We shall be going there again - very soon.
