We have been frequent visitors to Finest Catch since day one. We were aware of the changes being made and visited with friends recently feeling apprehensive. We need not have worried ! Ok ..... so the 'system' has changed but the basics...... Great food, fantastic value for money, wonderful staff are the same. Yes, you have to place your order... More

From waitress service at laid tables, to complete and utter chaos, people waiting in lines like scenes from a third world soup kitchen, uncontrolled children charging round the entire place, and staff trying to argue with customers that the booths seat 8, eight anorexic midgets possibly but eight normal size adults don't think so! Tried to book a table by... More

The new system of self seating self service is total rubbish, you have to queue to order and pay for drinks then order each course as you want it. A the end of the meal add all of the individual bar receipts to find out how much the meal and drinks cost. Not the friendly family restaurant it was. We... More

The Finest Catch has had a refurb and although the change seems to have upset some people the restaurant was full by the time I had left. Gone is the old seating system and you have to find your own now. I have to admit I liked the American diner theme but thats really scaled back now and the actual... More

I agree with all the earlier reviews regarding the "New System" When ever we visit my Mother in Law in Henley, we always go to the "Catch" and yesterday was our first visit since the "New System" of Self Service was introduced, what a let down. We went straight to a table as usual and waited to be served, but... More

We have been to both the Stratford Road, Shirley one and the Birmingham Road nr Henley in Arden one. Both are very good. Lovely 50s rocker cafe decor and music. Both have light, airy conservatories, almost like sitting outside. Fabulous fish and chips. So good we go regularly.

We went tonight to celebrate my dad's 75th (he is a massive fish and chip fan so we thought it would be the perfect venue). I couldn't fault this restaurant. The staff were super friendly and very attentive. We were a table of 10 and the service was very quick. The food was fabulous - very generous portions and all... More

We always visit here every time we are in the area. But tonight we experienced the changed system. Oh dear!!!!!!! As has been said "if it aint broke why fix it" "If I wanted a self-service cafeteria I would have gone to a self service cafeteria". This is the first time I have seen the place half empty in early... More

We called in at the Henley restaurant last night with my parents and was very dissapointed that they have changed the service there. We had to pay at the counter for our food and then make several journeys to get bread and butter knifes and forks etc. My parents are in there 80s and if they had been there on... More
