Finch House Values
“We’re an independent cafe dedicated to bringing you artisan coffee, find food and we love to source local produce. We’d like to offer you a warm welcome and are proud that it’s made by us…”
There may be more than one Finch House but we are independently owned by Daron, who simply wants to provide quality food at affordable prices. Independence allows us to be creative with our menus, fair with our pricing and reactive to what our customers like.
Made by us
Three little words which sum up our menu. Our talented bakers and chefs work side-by-side in the kitchen on our appetising menu, taking seasonal ideas and turning them into reality, ready for you to try.
We throw open our doors and welcome everyone! We work hard to ensure that there is something on the menu for absolutely everyone: colourful & crisp salads, comforting toasties & pies, gluten free soups & bakes, dairy free cakes, small treats for our younger guests and, for the sweet toothed, our renowned salted caramel brownie.
We care about the provenance of our ingredients and as we’re lucky enough to be in the ‘Garden of England’, we feel passionately about wanting to support fellow local food & drink producers. We source as many as possible of our ingredients from Kent and the surrounding areas including Kent cherries, Owletts’ juices and Speldhurst sausages.
