Our story

After extensively refurbishing this Grade II ‘listed’ historical building and giving the premises a touch of curious interior design and warmth we opened for business in May 2012, we’ve been welcoming locals and visitors to Eat, Drink, Stay & Enjoy here ever since.

 

Before our doors were opened to the public, a long time ago this building accommodated the Artic Explorer Admiral Parry; he is reported to have stayed here in 1839 in between his travels. Records even show the Mount Edgcumbe (known then as Mount Edgcumbe House) on Bowra’s map as early as 1738!). Our Georgian Gem is certain to inspire your inner historian as you discover our 6th century sandstone cave, and absorb the scenic views of our historic town from our flourishing leafy garden during the sunny months. When the weather is chilly we love to invite guests to sink into our plush sofas in front of our roaring open log fire.

 

As a family run business our main aim is to create a welcoming and warm atmosphere at the Mount Edgcumbe, and to be your first stop whenever you wish to Eat, Drink, Stay & Enjoy.

What’s around us

We love being located in such a wonderful town. Royal Tunbridge Wells has so much to offer visitors and residents alike – from the rich heritage and stunning architecture, to the diverse selection of bars, coffee shops and boutique stores. We are also home to the famous health-giving waters of the historical Chalybeate Spring and spacious stretches of grassy parks and woodland.
