Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Barn
A slightly curious-looking building - the tile-hanging at first-floor level provides a old fashioned appearance from a distance, but much else looks rather newer when you get closer. The furniture and decor of the main room is a mixture of traditional and modern, as in the side conservatory located down a couple of steps, and one welcome feature is a mobile 'phone charge locker. Perhaps its best feature is the large patio beer garden, part of which faces south and provides an unusual view of the railway station. The restaurant is located at first-floor area above the bar. Two of three handpumps in operation on this visit, Two of three handpumps in use on this visit, offering the regular Harvey's (£3.80) plus Spitfire Gold (plus a reversed clip noted for the regular Spitfire).

The Barn is made up to have a slightly rustic barn feel, but I think that it is a little too modern to pull it off properly. That said there is nothing really wrong with this place as I enjoyed a pleasant enough stay as I tucked into a pint of Harveys Best. Master Brew was also available with the third hand pump being unused. The draught available was Asahi, Kronenburg, Oranjeboom, San Miguel, Carlsberg and Strongbow. There is a leaning towards standard Shepherd Neame drinks, but I am led to believe that this pub/restaurant is privately owned. I suppose that this is Kent and Shep Neame is the local brewer, it’s just a shame that they aren’t a little more adventurous. Food is served and this was one of the busier pubs during my Wednesday jaunt around Tunbridge Wells. There is a conservatory area that leads to a well maintained beer garden that overlooks the train tracks leading into the station.
I’d have no problem popping back in here; it would be nice to see a decent ale on the bar though.
