    Sharing platter for 2 with wine included , very good value for money , all cooked perfectly. If I was to make a suggestion , a platter or hot plate which would keep food hotter for longer would be a good idea so that you were not rushing to eat whilst food hot.

    Arrived on time as booked. We were a group of four diners we were served drinks quickly. Our order was taken professionally by your staff at this point it all changed from ordering our food to being served was a wait of over 1 hour that was the least of our worries, the food and plates was cold the waitress apologised and took the food away it was returned quite quickly. It was still cold one of our group refused her dish and it was taken away she refused to re-order of the remaining 3 diners nobody had their full meal and all plates cleared containing cold food, a very disappointing first experience of the new Finley’s restaurant . I might add that at all times the staff was professional and polite.

    As always, both the food and service were good but the room was very cold indeed. When asked the heating was turned on but it took almost to the point of leaving for the room to be warm enough to remove my coat. Would think twice about going again at lunchtime.

    Had wonderful food and cocktails at Finlays - we had fish and chips but the Sunday roast looked amazing so will be coming back to try that. We asked beforehand and were seated in our favourite spot. The service was excellent- attentive and friendly

    Fabulous food as always and excellent service. We just happened to be seated adjacent to the bar and there was a big party on in the next room so lots of people queuing and drinking at the bar made it difficult for us to have a conversation or eat in a relaxed manner. Try and avoid a table by the bar area if you want a quite relaxing meal.

    Best fish I have eaten. We ate the 65 quid sharing platter, with 7/8 different types of seafood. All were delicious. Tasty side dish of greens, average fries, would choose chips next time. Short wait time for the meal. Excellent Tempranillo house wine. Friendly service. Buzzing atmosphere, we could see the chefs working hard. We had the high chairs, not a problem. We could eat and talk leisurely and we're not chased up.

    Super restaurant. We have visited Finlay’s on a few occasions and found the food to extremely tasty. We especially like their fish and chips offer. However, on our last visit (21.2.24) we found the chips were a little dry, luke warm and tasted a bit old. We have had this dish before and it’s been delicious so maybe just an off day! Otherwise a lovely experience.
