Lovely place

Very nice atmosphere inside this busy cafe, the pancakes are lovely and the sandwiches are tasty fresh and full to the brim with gorgeous ingredients. The only thing that I can say is that it gets extremely busy on weekends and that if there was a menu on tables it would make it easier to decide... read more

A cafe with a good range of freshly prepared food, cakes and pastries. Staff are friendly and helpful, tables are cleared promptly (always a plus for me). And best of all NO Music! Staff will prepare your coffee,tea etc just the way you like it. Lovely brownies....

This cafe has really improved since our last visit. There is a much better selection of home cooked food, better lunches and cakes. There is a new upstairs seating area and the cafe is now very popular and busy with queues at lunch-time. Good quiche and salad and lovely almond financiers.

Having read the reviews I selected Finch House as a good place to have a business meeting and was pleasantly surprised to find that this busy establishment had a quieter area upstairs, where we were able to have our discussions without the need to raise our voices. Service was pleasant, the food and beverages of good quality and the whole... More

Enjoyed a visit there for coffee and cake. Service was prompt, food was very good. Our only problem was the place was overheated, so we decided not to stay for lunch. Too hot for us there. we might try again but if it is the same we won't stay for food. A real pity. Otherwise a great place.

I am a regular customer and always find the food freshly cooked and delicious and the staff efficient, friendly and, what is more, ready to go the extra mile. This does not run only to their carrying the tray to the table of customers with shopping bags. Just before Christmas 2015, I placed an order for 36 scones for a... More

The cafe looks nice and clean. The coffee is not that special. I was served by a grumpy young waitress who did not look at me in the eye and was eating a chewing gum in an unattractive fashion. Service was slow.

I've lived in Tonbridge for just a couple of years but we often grab a quick lunch when shopping in the town. However, this was my first visit to Finch House and I wish I'd been before! We both had home-made mushroom soup which came with a huge hunk of home-made dark brown bread. The soup was delicious. It's just... More

Called in for morning coffee. Waiting for drinks to be made and noticed the cake and pastry display. Alongside Victoria sponge and croissants there were almond tarts, carrot cake and nutty brownies BUT only a couple of tongs which were being used intermittently between products! The nut bed cakes were not segregated. Mentioned the issue of nut contamination. To the... More

Nice spacious place on the high street, nice coffee and selection of food although a little pricey. Good location and seating upstairs and worth a visit
