Nice healthy options for lunch

Been here a few times now with my wife for lunch. Always popular with the locals . Always have some specials, such as soup or stew in winter . Salads, quiche, pies and much more . Of course sandwiches and great tea and coffee. Well laid out tables with an upstairs section as well for extra... read more

The place looks lovely and the stuff are very friendly. Lovely place to sit and relax with a cup of tea or even a proper meal. However, the smoothies are terrible. They just taste apple juice. We ordered a strawberry and a melon smoothie. Both just tasted apple juice. They were far from tasting melon or strawberry. REALLY BAD for... More

To discover this semi bistro / restaurant on the wettest day so far. Professional rain matched by the service and menu. We found Megan who clearly explained the in and outs and luckily said that I could have what could have last bottle of 'Owletts' Apple juice. Another delivery due to-day. Nice and pleasant atmosphere with the 'ambience' to go... More

Great coffee house. Food always lovely. People friendly and cafe is always clean. Nice and modern. One complaint though - Everything slightly over-priced though. This is Tonbridge, not Kensington! Get real with the pricing...

This cafe is a lovely place to come for a snack/drink whilst out and about. I had the pie and mash and it was a real tasty treat! Highly recommend, and it's good value too!

I have been in here numerous times for tea and cake. Lovely big teapots and crockery and good choice of cakes all made fresh. Ate lunch with a few friends for the first time here yesterday. The cheese toasters were delicious! (We all had one, recommended with chorizo). Service was quick, plenty of seats and topped up the teapot with... More

Called in here for a takeaway soya latte. It's the only place I have ever been charged extra for soya and I couldn't recognise it as coffee because it was so weak in taste. Won't be going there again.

Never less than top quality produce at this outlet; First Class at a more than reasonable price. Always well patronised.

Finch's has been here a few years now, and is clearly here to stay In fact it beats the coffee chains locally on two aspects of the genre - (i) ability to provide a free table (even though it's deservedly very popular, even without a loyalty card) and (ii) range of quick bites. I'd say the coffee (in all the... More

I go here regularly for coffee... and its brilliant... but is getting very very busy, they need more staff to cater for the number of customers that are now coming through the door.. there is quite often crockery left on tables, and I have often taken it to the kitchen myself. That said, its a great place, the food is... More
