Tony goes out of his way to make sure your party goes off with a bang with excellent staff, lovely fresh canapes and a free cloakroom plus there are different areas to sit designed to cater for small or larger parties. Everyone seemed to be having a great time because of the good vibe. I'd definitely go back again. Friends of Mine is a great name for such a friendly place.

Huge thanks to Tony and staff at Fields of Mine for a fabulous menu at last night's Beckenham Business Association Christmas meeting. We know we can always rely on you for quality and efficiency of service.

Had afternoon tea here for my sisters hen and the whole afternoon went down a treat. The manager was incredibly helpful in ensuring we all had a great time and set the atmosphere perfectly. The area we had was great for the amount of people we had and meant we could all catch up. The tea and cake package that we had was brilliant, home made cakes and lots of them! Thank you - would definitely recommend for baby shower, hen afternoon or just to drop in and have a catch up.

Thought we would try the Tuesday open mic night as normally have a few drinks and good food there.
We went there last night and the bar was busy and a real mix of singers/music. Manager was very friendly and the atmosphere was buzzing !! Looking forward to return soon :-)

Like the reviewer below me, this was a return visit after a few years for a birthday meal. There seemed to be little atmosphere and the music was as loud as in a nightclub despite it being a restaurant and relatively early. Ordered the chicken which looked nice but was covered in a thick gravy and seemed to be nothing like the description in the menu. Took ages to come out as well. My jacket even smelt of the gravy the next day it was that strong! Doubt we will be returning.
