BEYOND THE GROUNDS

A STORY. A CULTURE. A CONNECTION.

Great ideas often begin on a napkin and that’s exactly how BTG got started. 20 years ago local girl Jennie Kenny wrote down her dream of offering the most amazing hospitality in an open, welcoming space, which would inspire, refresh and connect the community.

Since then, extensive research has taken place and a fantastic team of friends come together, with a passion to see renaissance in Tonbridge and a thriving café culture that means we don’t have to go elsewhere. We think we’ve found the perfect venue in Gilbert House, which not only has the most magnificent view in Tonbridge – it’s also home to our good friends at Tonbridge Counselling Service, who use the upstairs space.

JUST A COFFEE SHOP?

WAY BEYOND WHAT YOU MIGHT EXPECT.

Our name hints that we are more than just a coffee shop. We are also a creative meeting place bringing you evening events as well as themed and seasonal ones too. We aim to develop our business using social enterprise principles. We will reinvest profit not only to improve our business, but also communities both locally and further afield.

GRAB A NAPKIN

WHAT’S YOUR DREAM?

The enlivening properties of caffeine and the community of the coffee shop have long inspired customers. Encouraged innovation and ideas sharing. Birthed the people and ideas that have changed the world.

So we’d love you to be part of our journey. Go Beyond with us – beyond the grounds of the best coffee, the grounds of the most fantastic medieval castle and awaken your potential to dream your own napkin dreams.
