Not just fish and chips but alternatiivs on a good menu, I had a salad instead of chips with my fish, beautifully presented, staff very friendly and a happy atmosphere in the retro American diner. And added bonus half priced on Monday's and Tuesday's .

On our way to a night out we wanted somewhere to eat on the way. Being on the main road with plenty of parking this was a really handy place to stop. We told the waitress that we only had a short time limit for our meals. She was very helpful and got our desserts ready just as we were... More

The Finest Catch was a fine catch for us! We loved the atmosphere and the juke box. This restaurant is unpretentious, the menu says it as it is. Good quality food, beautifully cooked and served with a smile. There is a limited choice within the menu and also a selection of interesting desserts. Excellent value for money - revisiting is...

I've used the Finest Catch many times now and the food is consistently good quality and the staff are efficient and friendly. Tend to use this for quick lunches and meetings away from the office and can always be in and out within the hour. Prices are fair and the retro decor and juke box make for a unique atmosphere.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and really like the concept but on this occasion the staff all looked fed up there was no manager on duty and we had a bottle of tomato sauce explode over one of...

The fish and chips are well cooked and excellent value but the seating is cramped, the music noisy and when full it is too noisy to have a conversation. Bread and butter are provided with the meal but personally I would like the chance to opt out and avoid waste as I never eat it

After hearing so many good reviews about the finest catch I decided to try it. It was the worst american diner I have ever been too. The service was extremely poor, and the food was below par. It appeared that all the food was made from frozen. I ordered milkshake on arrival which tasted terrible. We then had garlic bread... More

Staying over the road at the Best Western Hotel. Read some decent reviews so tried this on a Friday night. Looks good from the outside. Has a feel of an American Diner inside. Staff were friendly and efficient. Licensed and the drinks are well priced. Prices of food are reasonable and have half price offers some days. Was 50/50 re... More
