Within the scenic parish of Southborough, The Hand & Sceptre is a refurbished gastro pub serving modern British cuisine with Mediterranean influences. The restaurant comprises rustic décor and the cosy bar area offers a fine selection of wines and snacks.
With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, the menu at The Hand & Sceptre restaurant features modern signature recipes made using the finest seasonal ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include Mediterranean mezze, seared chicken breast with sweet potato rosti & buttered British beans, and spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.
The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Hand & Sceptre bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.
The Hand & Sceptre in Tunbridge Wells is a 4-minute drive from High Brooms Station.

Excellent food and service. Been here before and it never disappoints.

Great atmosphere at this M&B brand. Food choice had something for everybody and the quality was good. Staff were attentive without being all over us. My only problem was the bottle if Barolo wine which, at just under £40, should have been more rewarding. Perhaps I would have been happier with something around the £20 mark.
Overall, we had a very pleasant evening and would definitely recommend the Hand & Sceptre.

Food very good but the restaurant had got my booking time wrong by one hour. I had reserved for 1.30pm and had a confirmation e-mail. On arrival the restaraunt had me down for 12.30pm booking and had written me as a "no show". Fortunately there was a table available at my e-mail confirmed time and there wasn't a problem.
