New bar and eatery to open in The Pantiles

OUT ON THE PANTILES: The new eatery is due to open at the end of next month

A classy new venue is to open in late April in the heart of Tunbridge Wells’ most scenic spot.

Charlotte’s of The Pantiles will be the town’s newest eatery and bar, with the space having undergone a complete renovation to include a new kitchen and bar, complete with an inside living wall, a cosy fireplace, a stunning wine cellar with backlighting and a sunken ‘banquet’ seating area.

Operations Manager Adam Peters-Ennis told the Times: “Charlotte’s is an eatery with a light food menu, classic cocktails, and hot drinks in the day but transitions into a bar vibe by night.

“The bar will have a complementary menu of small plates and serve a selection of spirits, cocktails and wines that we get from specialist suppliers that you won’t find in the supermarket.

“After the lockdown, we saw cocktails and spirits become really popular, so we have made sure our shelves have a large range of options, with 170 bottles of spirits and a real focus on classic cocktails.

“We hope that when people come here, they will enjoy trying something different.

“In the future, we hope to run tasting events, and ‘meet the maker’ sessions where we sell bottles of our spirits to share our passion with everyone.

“It’s funny, on social media we keep getting called ‘the piano bar’. We don’t actually have a piano, but we hope our guests enjoy our high-energy evenings with music, even without the piano.”

The Grade II-listed building, at 26-28 The Pantiles, will have 68 external covers in the historic cobbled street.

Charlotte’s of The Pantiles will be open from 10am to midnight, Tuesday to Sunday.
