New favourite place in Tunbridge wells! Amazing vibe there, all staff were super friendly and the food was outstanding at a very reasonable price.
My wife, 7 year old carnivore and I went there for lunch. We had a great meal that lived up to expectations! Will be back!
If you want a great burger and chips without fancy restaurant frills, this is the place. Burgers are delicious with a wonderful selection of home cooked fries. Service was very efficient and professional. Will return!
Great food and drinks on tap. Fast service with good manners. Would reccomend and will be returning!!!
Juicy burgers, good service, good music.
Don't expect a posh dining experience , this is a causal no frills burger spot that serves Amazing burgers! Perfect for a causal bite with mates. Good value, good service. Highly recommended
Outstanding burgers! Could have eaten it all again if I wasn’t so full!
Sweet potato fries with maple syrup and bacon was unbelievable!
Can’t believe it was so quiet, everyone needs to go here! 10/10 would visit again!
We had been recommended Marlowe's by a friend who had visited a few months earlier and had raved about the food. I booked online and when we arrived were promptly shown to our table. Overall I wasn't surprised that the place is tiny but it wasn't especially busy, so no big deal. We were seated at a table of 4 at the top of a very small set of stairs off the restaurant floor. The table itself was freezing mainly due to the fact that there was a breeze coming up the stairs. I can only imagine that heating the place is an issue because after a while we were all shivering (there was one small electric heater on the floor nearby but we couldn't feel it).
The restaurant was set up for a few larger parties that were due in later so we were unable to move tables. We stuck with it and ordered 2 kids meals and 2 adult burgers, disappointingly I was told The Maj wasn't available as they were out of caramelised onion, I requested it without the onions and after a small discussion between waiter and chef I was told they could do this. All good as it was the one I really wanted and I was going to ask for it with now onions anyway.
We requested the kids tried to be swapped for sweet potato fries and was told this wasn't a problem. We ordered drinks which arrived promptly and food arrived shortly afterwards.
The food was lovely!! The burgers we perfectly cooked and we couldn't moan about the kids portion sizes as my 9yo could barely finish hers.
All in all we'd most likely go back but ask to be seated somewhere else or maybe go back later in the year.
My only other comment would be about the atmosphere. The music was way too loud for such a small restaurant and the place looks half decorated (a tiny framed picture on a large blank wall?!?)
Incredible burgers and chips. Great music playing the whole time although at times it was too loud to have a conversation. Staff were friendly and very attentive. Good selection of draught and bottled beers. Really interesting specials (I had the marmite burger - seriously try it) that you probably wouldn't find anywhere else. Loved the really basic menu as it makes choosing easier and they do everything on the menu really well.
Food was absolutley lovely and we were quickly seated.
Seating arrangements were a bit tight, (we were at the back by the wall and there was another table next to us so it may have been that the table was meant to be a 4 but split because we were only 2 - we were worried that we might get trapped in if another 2 people sat down next to us, luckily they didn't!)
All the staff were lovely and accomodating - we were slightly confused about paying as we weren't sure if we needed to go up and pay!
Such a lovely dinner though, best burgers ever!!
Amazing service and amazing burgers! Always recommend Marlowe’s to everyone I know!
Special fries priced 5.50 and was shredded bacon with a little parmasam and put in oven. Normal chip 2.75, over priced and over cooked, chicken kev came out caremated very dry and burnt. We did make them aware and removed from the bill, bugers swimming in grease and made the bottom of the bin very soggy and made it diffect to eat,
The best burger in town!
A chilled, funky vibe at this great little burger restaurant. Simple and tasty, no frills. I would definitely recommend it.
Nothing fancy, but you get exactly what you would hope for, great burgers made with good quality beef.
Great tasty food! Rustic look, very friendly staff
Amazing service and food. Loved it! The team were so attentive. Great burgers
Good burger and very tolerate of our 2 very energetic boys!
We love this place and visit regularly. When we first started going here the patty was 6oz, but they have since started serving 2 3oz patties. This might not sound like much of a difference, but we really noticed it. Fortunately for us they are more than happy to create the 6oz patty if asked. This is by far the best burger I've ever had. Consistency is always there and always a great experience. The staff are top notch, very welcoming and approachable.
Very friendly staff and chef is always happy to chat and get the perfect burger for you. Very enjoyable evening, we will be back!!
Always the best! Fantastic service and even better food
Been meaning to go to Marlowes for a while. Wasn’t disappointed - the food was A-MAZ-ING! They don’t have a huge menu but what they do, they do brilliantly.
Don’t expect to stay there too long as food is quick to order and to eat, and with no starters or desserts, it’s not the place for a long evening meal.
Had a great time here the staff were absolutely brilliant, the vibe of the place is excellent. Quite honestly this place does the best burger in Kent in my opinion the food was absolutely exceptional, the sweet potato fries were by far the best I have had anywhere as well. The prices were extremely cheap for the quality of food you get, 5 stars rating I will be returning at every opportunity I have to eat out in the t wells area.
Never disappoints. Great atmosphere, warm attentive service. Chilled out playlist. We were fortunate enough to catch a deal evening which was very flexible and as such the whole meal was surprisingly cheap.
They recently changed their burgers from one larger patty to two smaller patties and personally I think it’s an improvement on an already top notch burger.
If you either haven’t been yet or haven’t had a sit down meal in Marlowes and you like your food then do yourself a favour and book a table.
Excellent, not only the food, but the also. A good welcoming friendly atmosphere.
Good burger, friendly and fast service (we wanted fast, so that's a positive), and great value.
Absolutely amazing! Best burger I’ve had in th UK! Will be back! I’ve heard the lease is up soon and that you can’t renew? Please tell me that’s not true!
All good things come in small packages. Fantastic burgers and food, friendly staff; so relaxed. Its kid friendly but could also be a ‘first date’ place. Lovely vibe. It’s a small restaurant so remember to book. ❤️😊👌
Cracking little place with great food and lovely people. I’ll be back!
Great food and lovely staff, would definitely recommend👌
Amazing burgers. Very friendly staff. Amazing value and real good addition to Tunbridge wells
Tasty, tasty very very tasty! Great value too at lunch time.
If you fancy a burger and great beer, don't waste your time looking anywhere else
Great burgers, good service best in town well worth a visit
Lovely atmosphere. Great food. Children made to feel very welcome.
Food was great. Service a bit more patchy. We ordered a Brisket and a Maj, plus a sweet potato fries and a cheesy/bacon fries. Waiter came back after a minute to check what the second burger was. Then when food arrived (which was great it must be said), I was a few chips in when I realised that I'd actually been given the hot sauce fries instead (think they call them 'angry fries'). They were great, but not what I ordered. I mentioned this to waiter who apologised but didn't offer top get me a correct order. When I paid the bill at the counter on the way out as prompted I did mention this again and asked them to confirm that I'd only pay for the (slightly cheaper) fries I'd ordered and was assured that yes I would. I wasn't given any sort of itemised bill however so I don't know. We would go back as the burgers were THE BEST, but I'd be careful when ordering and perhaps have a mental tot-up of bill when paying!
Shockingly over priced .
Totally trying to punch way above.
Had potential to be fab burger bar but waitress was totally disinterested and the food was pretty average and quite pricey compared to GBK or the like.
Fantastic food and great service, what more can you ask for. Will be coming back as soon as I can
Quite possibly the nicest burger I’ve had. The place is great with warm friendly service, reasonable prices and clearly a passion for high quality ingredients. The sauces are way too expensive but I can forgive them that.
Will definitely be back.
