Best Value near Henley-in-Arden (especially Monday & Tuesday)

"Finest Catch" just North of Henley in Arden on the A3400 is the best value around, especially all day Monday and Tuesday when their Main (and lighter) meals are all HALF PRICE. This means you get a great choice from the menu for between £3 and £5, scampi, fish, hamburger, hot dogs, etc.. It does... read more

When you go somewhere for the first time you always wonder if you've done the right thing. Well we certainly did the right thing on Tuesday 19th of May. Perfect food,great atmosphere and spotlessly clean. The decor is quite lovely and the service was excellent! If you like good honest uncomplicated meals at an amazing price try it. Stunningly main...

Had a great afternoon with our best friends at this great place. Loved the juke box and 50s diner decor, then there is the food. The dinner was amazing, and get this, free bread and butter and seconds on chips. On top of that we went on Tuesday, a half price day ( along with Mondays), so value for money... More

I'd heard very good things about this fish n chip diner in Henley, but as we live in Stratford, kept forgetting to make the effort to visit. Well yesterday, that was all put right, when we experienced The Finest Catch for the first time - and lets just say, it was so worth the wait! The diner style restaurant was... More

We visited again on a Friday late lunchtime and enjoyed a simple "cod and chips" meal. Happy to provide me with lemon for the tea rather than milk, which arrived as well. Service was well paced. The fish was a reasonable size although a little dryer than I would like. Plenty of chips. My wife thought her mushy peas were... More

Stopped on a Bank Holiday evening as a party of 4. Seated quickly and orders taken quickly. I enjoyed an excellent mint chocolate chip milkshake. Chicken and ham salad was exactly that. Others had fish and chips which were enjoyed. Mushy peas plentiful but a bit like puree. Ample bread and butter. mayonnaise provided in a bottle. Juke box nearby... More

We dropped in on Wednesday lunchtime, 12.30am, travelling back home from Stratford. Very pleasantly received and shown to a table without delay. Waitress very efficient. The surroundings are American Diner, complete with juke box. Not our style but OK if you like that sort of thing I guess. Don't know why what is basically a fish and chip restaurant needs... More

The day after visiting with my sister, niece and nephew we were back - and this time we were having ice cream. The reason for the return visit was that the evening before we were far too full, but I had promised ice cream. The sundaes are delicious, and true to their word - you can just order whatever you...

Cant recall exactly when visited. Went twice last spring and summer with two different groups. good staff and surrounding, but after a build up quite disappointed. surprised that peas or salad not part of basic fish/chicken and chips. Desserts fine. slightly over priced for what you get. Good car parking

We used to go regularly but the service has reached a point where we do not go unless it is empty. If they sit you in the glass conservatory you can wait for 30 mins and never get a refill for your drink. This was a great concept but it relies upon good servers being bright and attentive and this... More
