What an absolutely wonderful experience we had at Riddle and Finns on Sunday. The excellence of the food was paralleled by the excellence of the service. The staff were so warm and attentive, turning what was essentially a wonderful experience with exquisite food into one of the loveliest afternoons we have had in ages. Thank you!

Our family had a great time celebrating my husbands birthday. I didn’t notify you because he doesn’t like a fuss but our lovely waitress obviously realised it was his birthday and made sure he got his cake and candle! It was greatly appreciated.

We had a wonderful time thank you! From my very first contact with your staff to arrange a group booking, all was extremely pleasant and professional. Very accommodating booking staff. On the actual evening we had a lovely private room with flowers and candles decorating it beautifully. Waiting staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. Food delicious and great wines. We had a fabulous time. Many many thanks. We will be back!

We had a wonderful evening, the food was wonderful and the service was spot on. I only gave 4 stars for value for money as the bill included a cover charge which, while only a small amount, seemed unecessary when you consider the cost of the bill and the fact that 10% service charge was also included.

Our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. We were also encouraged that we were not hurried out of the restaurant and could have a very relaxing evening. Thank you.

Hello. I have left some feedback on Trip Advisor from the six of us, which you might like to read. In summary, the staff were excellent &the food was great. However, the place was very noisy and our table was next to the stairs, with staff and customers coming & going and we were very close to other tables, which we didn’t like. Although we expected to wait for our freshly cooked food, I had to check twice if we had been forgotten, as people on other tables were served more quickly. Two of the main courses were lukewarm & one was returned to be reheated. The same happened to the people on the table behind us. The pan fried crab dish was in its shell and very messy for one friend and this wasn’t explained on the menu or by the waitress. I think a free glass of wine or something similar for my three slightly disgruntled friends would have been a nice gesture, as I did have a discussion at the table with one of the managers about the cold food & the crab. So, a mixed dining experience. We loved the food, but the noise and the slightly chaotic atmosphere put us off coming back in the evening - particularly a Saturday. As a local, I have been several times for lunch and will continue to bring friends during weekdays when it seems to be less noisy and more relaxing. We did leave a tip as all the staff were friendly, courteous and very busy, but we were all a little disappointed.

Lovely seafood, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Having looked at the bill we were charged a 'cover charge'. Never seen this before and annoyed that we were not made aware of this extra. The restaurant might want to review their systems at change of shift as we waited a long time for our drinks because of this.

The food we had was lovely but the set menu choice was disappointing and the main menu options we had were too small .. even for my 11 year old!
