Plenty of choice not just F & C. Fish was tasty and cooked well. The others were impressed with mushy peas and my brother in law enjoyed the banana split.

A good quality unpretentious fish restaurant is hard to find, so it was a welcome surprise to discover the Finest Catch as we needed to break our journey home from the south. Having lived in the West Midlands many years ago, I knew the charming village of Henley in Arden would offer a nice eating place, but wasn't expecting or... More

My partner and I have eaten here quite a few times, and last night took friends that hadn'tr been before. Each time we have found the restaurant clean, the staff friendly and efficient, and the food just great. Last night was no exception, and our friends were well impressed! The restaurant is decked out like an American diner, complete with... More

This is a great 50's style restaurant that serves simple, no nonsense food for a great price. You get really good portions of all the meals, you won't go home hungry (especially since you can order fish and chips to take away). You get free bread (white and wholemeal) and butter for each person with every meal - such a... More

Best fish and chips I've had for years! It was an amazing experience- 50's style diner with jukebox. Clean, comfy with friendly staff. Very reasonable prices. A gem of a place! Would thoroughly recommend it, and you don't come out smelling like you've been 'frying tonight'! Get there early

We were travelling back from Cadburys worls and desperately needed something to eat. We passed Finest Catch on the side of busy road and decided to stop by. Following food all I can say is that I'm extremely glad we stopped, the food was fab, great service and good value. I would certainly venture here again. We had regular haddock... More
