Beau Nash Pub

In 1735, Richard 'Beau' Nash, a celebrated dandy and leader of fashion in eighteenth century Britain, appointed himself Master of Ceremonies in Tunbridge Wells, and retained control of the entertainments provided for visitors until his death in 1761. He had become well known in the same role at Bath, where he had presided for thirty years. Bath, it was said, was his kingdom, and Tunbridge Wells a colony of that kingdom.

Nash had been interested in taking control at Tunbridge Wells for some years, but had been excluded by the formidable Bell Causey, who 'presided as absolute governess' until her death in 1734. As well as organizing entertainments, Nash established strict rules for correct behavior. In order to ensure that visitors paid subscriptions for services provided, he introduced Sarah Porter, 'Queen of the Touters', who eagerly pursued defaulters.

Under Nash, Tunbridge Wells attained the height of its fame as a fashionable resort, attended by royalty and nobility.

Today, the Beau Nash is a cosy, welcoming pub, with well-stocked shelves, real ales, and a traditional menu. There are also BBQ’s and parties, and we are now licensed for weddings.
