I always enjoy using Finch house as the coffee is good and food is well and fairly priced compared with the competitors. On my last visit, after a discussion about a good European coffee, I was offered to try a double macchiato on the house that ticked all my boxes. What person doesn't want to eat in a buzzing friendly... More

Love this little cafe, with fresh food and always service with a smile. The little pies and mash are to die for and perfect on a winter's day before or after doing a spot of shopping.

Horrible view of the shopping mall and extremely noisy with yummy mummies. Expensive food and drinks. However, food is good, and there are some healthy veggie options and nicely presented. One staff member is very friendly and chatty, the others don't make any effort. They have newspapers to read which is great. You can't talk to friends as you can;t... More

Went with a group of four and a toddler. Despite being very busy the service was very prompt and efficient. Hot chocolate and tea was very nice and between us we had chocolate brownie, millionaire shortcake and carrot cake. All were superb.

We quite often visit this place if we fancy a drink and a quick bite. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Their service is excellent, the coffee house is kept spotless and their is plenty of seating inside. On a sunny day you can sit outside as their are a few table and chairs. Their prices are very reasonable... More

We have used Finches since it opened. Clearly it does better than well or else we don't learn very quickly. Given the great number of opportunities to take coffee in Tonbridge High Street it is clearly the former. Better than good scones, great bakes and jolly service all combine to make one look forward to one's next visit.

We had a snack & hot chocolate drinks. Nice clean place, good choice and friendly staff. A bit expensive for a croissant but overall nice enough

The place is nicely decorated and the staff is friendly. Mash and pie is what I usually have and it's superb. The cupcakes are not great though they look amazing at first sight. Coffee is good quality and a safe choice. What really disappoints me about this place is the fact that in general everything is overpriced. If you order... More
