Newcourt Residential Top 5 Places to Eat in Wadhurst

Nestling in the rural beauty of East Sussex, the village of Wadhurst is a popular choice for those seeking the authentic country living experience, with the added bonus of great transport links to London and Royal Tunbridge Wells.

With Bewl Water, the largest stretch of open water in the South East, on your doorstep, you’ll never be short of outdoor leisure activities.

Here are Newcourt’s top 5 places to eat in Wadhurst.

Best for families – The Bull Inn

This 14th Century inn, conveniently situated within walking distance of the Bewl Water reservoir, includes a playground for children and also welcomes dogs. Renowned for its large log fires and low oak beams, the Bull Inn offers the quintessential English country pub experience, generous food portions, and a pleasing array of local ales. Its two gardens and stunning views make it the perfect place to relax after a strenuous hike – or simply to round off a leisurely day with the family.

Best for sweet treats – The Cottage Tea Room

In need of a sugary snack or a light lunch? The Cottage Tea Room is the place to be. This quaint and tiny tea room, situated on Wadhurst High Street, is a favourite of both locals and tourists, a hidden gem that regularly receives rave reviews for its homemade fare. Delicious cakes and scones are freshly baked, and customers can choose from indoor or outdoor seating for a classy experience whatever the weather. Enjoy loose leaf tea served in beautiful china, and service with a smile.

Best for foodies – Galapagos at The Old Vine

Another hidden gem, The Old Vine is located just a short drive from Bewl Water. Its rustic white exterior looks like many a quintessential English pub, but inside, the cuisine is straight out of South America. Expect flavoursome seafood starters, hearty mains and traditional Spanish and Argentine desserts, all served by attentive staff in a cosy, exposed brickwork environment. Bold, vibrant art prints provide a pop of colour on the walls. It’s South America served up in the heart of England.

Best value – The White Hart

Situated on the High Street, the central Wadhurst location makes this cheery dining pub a favourite choice among locals and visitors. Its menu features various great value deals, including its popular Wednesday offering of two steaks and a bottle of wine for £35 – perfect for date night. Fresh local produce and a wide selection of beverages, including a collection of over 60 gins, cement the White Hart’s status as one of the best value and highest quality establishments in the area.

Best for curry – Simply Indian

Offering a combination of traditional dishes and unique contemporary twists, Simply Indian is conveniently located on Wadhurst’s High Street and offers dine-in or takeaway options. It enjoys regular praise in both local and food publications for its chefs’ use of quality ingredients and lack of artificial preservatives.
