Southborough eatery named Britain’s ‘Best Local Restaurant’

TOP TABLE: Tallow, in Southborough

A Tunbridge Wells restaurant has beaten contenders from across the country to come top in the Good Food Guide’s list of ‘Britain’s 100 Best Local Restaurants 2023’.

Tallow, in Southborough, has quickly garnered a reputation locally for exquisite dining and was placed 91st on the Guide’s list for 2022, just a year after it was opened by husband-and-wife team Rob and Donna Taylor.

Before that, the couple had spent eight years at The Compasses gastropub in Crundale, near Canterbury, and had won the eatery a Bib Gourmand and a top-10 position in Estrella Damm’s ‘Top 50 Gastropubs’ list.

Online reviewers particularly rave about Tallow’s seven-course tasting menu with an optional wine flight.

The Good Food Guide described Tallow as “a down-to-earth, dress-how-you-want, genuinely friendly place”, while praising “the sheer deliciousness of the ‘unique monthly menus’ and the ‘excellence of the service’, dedicated totally to customer satisfaction and enjoyment”.
