Finch House just continues to impress me every time we visit. Today, it was a busy Saturday lunchtime and the place was rammed. Downstairs, nearly every table was occupied and upstairs, just a couple of tables free. The ladies working behind the counter were firing...More

Decent coffee and a good range for breakfast. The porridge with fruits, nuts and honey was fab. Was very busy but staff remained smiley, the lady on the coffee machine was working like a demon and must have an incredible memory as she didn’t mess...More

When in Tonbridge we go to Finch House (have Waitrose free cards but fed up with the 'depends who makes the coffee' as to whether it's good or not, especially Sevenoaks Waitrose, no training on coffee machines!) Had the orange and lemon cake, excellent, fresh,...More

Stopped here for a Coffee and a snack after walking past and seeing the popular, bustling cafe a few times. Strange when the Fire alarm went off, assuming it was a drill. None of the members of staff were communicating and were giggling. There should...More

Have been here twice and had a really good experience both times. I ate the most delicious chocolate fudge cake and their quiche is really nice too. It’s a little bit expensive for the portions that you’re getting but the service was really good.More

A popular place to meet people, or so it would seem. They have crammed quite a few tables and chairs in so space is at a premium and leg space is small. It is quite busy with people beetling about all over the place. A...More

We make healthy lunch options with soups and six different salads each day. Plus a few gluten and dairy-free options so everyone can enjoy our food.
