Four of us ate here and had a great evening...or should I say early evening. This place gets booked up early, so get your booking done in advance. I booked on Thursday and could only get a 2-hour slot at 5pm on Saturday.

We had a selection of superb oysters to share and then moved on to the specials, where 2 of us had sea bream, and the others had a lemon sole and a Dover sole respectively.

The fish was perfectly cooked and we just chose to have potatoes as sides. Truffle mash and sauté.

Service was excellent. Will definitely return.

Enjoyed a very tasty meal here at Riddle and Finns. Our waitress helped with recommendations - mussels, squid, fish stew, and the house fish pie were all fantastic.

My family had a fantastic meal at this restaurant. The waiter was brilliant, he made a fuss of my daughter and really looked after us. The children’s menu came with chowder but he went out of his way to source a bacon free alternative for my daughter which was a nice touch.
The food was excellent and plentiful. Loved the bottomless bread basket with he dips- mackerel pate was my particular favourite.
I had a curry and the fish in it was cooked to perfection.
The children loved their food too.
Great food, lovely atmosphere and very attentive and knowledgable staff- what more can you ask for. If only we didn’t live 200 miles away!
