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 have been welcoming locals and visitors to

Eat, Drink, Stay and Enjoy ever since.

A long time ago, before our doors were opened to the public, the Arctic explorer Admiral Parry is reported to have stayed here in 1839 in-between his travels. Records even show 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 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 warm and welcoming atmosphere here at Mount Edgcumbe and to be your first stop whenever you with to Eat, Drink, Stay and Enjoy.


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. Tunbridge wells is also home to the historical Chalybeate Spring and spacious stretches of grassy parks and woodland.



Our Front of House & Kitchen Team members all have one thing in common - we are very friendly people! We love producing delicious food and a comfortable environment for all of our guests, and we all share a passion for good food and drink!
