Pleased to see the standard of the place has not dropped as a few years ago this place was one to be avoided in my view. A sports bar full of lager louts!

Nowadays the place has friendly knowledgeable bar staff, TVs with the sound down and a wider mix of clientele.
It's hard to think of a better "closest to the railway station" pub around.

There are plenty of real ales available: Bedfordshire Zingiber, Gadds #5, Bedford Steam Best, Turners Gold Spice, Pilgrim Gold Spice, Old Dairy Snow Top and some Greene King beers on my visit.

Definitely worth going to if you're in the area!

Decent enough alehouse with well kept selection of beers. As mentioned handy for the station - can be a bit pricey.

Pub number 1 of a day of pub ticking & football in Tunbridge Wells.

Smallish corner plot pub right by the station that is very focused on ales. I wasn’t aware of this having never been here before so I was pleased and surprised to see such a cracking selection of ales that are charged as per their abv. 11 hand pumps with a different ale on each pump.

Due to it’s location I ended up visiting twice in 1 day. Visit number 1 @ lunchtime I went for Hardy and Hanson’s Bedford Steam @ 3.9%, on my evening visit I had Old Diary Brewery Summer Top @ 3.6%, both very good pints & kept well.

6 punters in who were chatting to the landlord and chef when I first visited then in the evening @ 10pm it was pretty packed with music playing and a mixed crowd.

Friendly little pub that I will be returning to on my next visit to TW not just because of it’s convenient location by the station.

The Bedford is a perfect example of how a real pub should be. Friendly, knowledgeable and passionate staff and a very efficiently managed cellar showcasing a wide range of both local and national ales. All landlords please note: visit this pub and copy what they do, because this is how you do it!

Unfortunately I don't go to Tunbridge Wells very often (generally only for the cricket), so I don't get to visit this pub as much as I'd like.

It's improved a lot over the last couple of years. There is a wide range of real ales and the staff are far more friendly now.
The landlord was keen to advise me about the beers and which ales he was planning to sell over the following weeks.

It's very handy for the railway station and definitely worth popping in for a couple of pints before catching your train!
