Might well be the best of the Wetherspoon 1,000.

Historic, well run and very busy.

Was bombed during WWII.

Wetherspoon's finest. Impressive building, opened 1902 as an opera house - and later a cinema and bingo hall.

Periodically, operas are still performed - when the pub closes to allow them; the stage, and much of the original seating, still exists.

A lovely and unique setting for a few ales - with the venue's history illustrated on the walls. Now a listed building.

Our last pub of the night and it’s a visit to Tunbridge’s Wetherspoon’s.

Having done no research on this pub we literally stumbled across it & wow is all I can say about the interior….what a cracking building, the Opera House is stunning, absolutely stunning.

We come in on Saturday tea time & it’s half full but the place is huge with plenty of tables on the old stage area for diners. We stay for several hours and around 8.30pm the atmosphere & clientele changes as the Saturday night youngsters come out.

11 hand pumps on the bar, I chose Rockin Robin Brewer’s Pale Side of the Spoon @ 4.2% as my first pint and stick to it all night. The pub itself is a regular ‘spoons but what makes this place is the interior.

Decent ‘spoons, gorgeous building…so for that I score this place 8/10.

Impressive are the insides of this pub as it used be a theatre. Trouble is there is very little natural light in the place. Good choice of ales, decent bar staff and most of the punters seem well behaved and friendly enough.

The most amazing interior of any Wetherspoons pub I've been in, with it being a working Opera venue. Centre of Tunbridge Wells, a town lacking volume of pubs, coupled with the fact its a 2 minute walk from Job Centre Plus = Avoid.

The worst Wetherspoons clientèle I've encountered.
