The Walnut Tree in Tonbridge Road in Maidstone is one of Kent's leading Music and Comedy venues. (Gig Guide)

  • Thursday evening you really need to be here for top class Alternative Comedy
    Stand-ups from the stars of  adult-only humour.  Don't attend if you are easily offended by being amongst grown ups.

    We started our comedy nights in November 1990 to cheer everyone up at the start of the recession. We are now firmly established on the comedy circuit as the longest running and the cutting edge of Stand Up Comedy in Kent.

    Many famous names have appeared here at the start of their careers;
    Jo Brand, Ardal O'Hanlon (Father Ted), Alan Davies (Jonathan Creek), Graham Norton, Dylan Moran, Jeff Green, Alistair McGowan, Ed Byrnes,I an Cognito, Lucy Porter, Boothby Graffoe, Adam Bloom, The Bastard Son of Tommy Cooper, Wilty, Mark Lamarr, Charlie Chuck (Uncle Peter) Mandy Knight and Dominic Holland
    to name but a few.
    A few found the set-up quite daunting as we are only a very small pub, it was likened to Kathy Bates house in Misery, but none the less they enjoyed the evening and the appreciation of the audience. Most came back a second or third time. Even the Independent Newspaper gave us a mention for the comedians to be afraid, very afraid. This we took as a compliment rather than never making the press at all.
    We don't charge on the door, which is a refreshing change in this day and age, but rely on ou to buy a few beers. The comedy starts at 9.30pm. every Thursday Evening. A fun night out in a friendly local.

    Monday night there is always Live music, a jam session or equivalent entertainment
    Probably the best gig in Kent on a Monday.

  • You do not need to be a follower of music and comedy to enjoy our wide selection of beers and tasty menu.
    Just travel down Tonbridge Road in Maidstone until you see the giant tree and scary stone building with metal letters on the side and you have arrived.

    You are always welcome
    Rosaline & John
