Fun for all the family, Fin's Cafe Bar is a diverse establishment boasting everything from live music, 'singles nights' events and salsa dancing. An outside terrace is available for alfresco dining while a spread of comfy sofas inside can make the most of the complimentary Wi-Fi and newspapers. A stone skim away from the sea front and the common, the cafe, bar and restaurant is home to a menu of homemade classics, light bites, and afternoon tea.

I feel that the picture linked and the description given with this groupon deal was not a true reflection of what we received when we came. I purchased this voucher to use as a Christmas gift for a friend based on the festive feel promoted. As much as the food was ok, it could have been better in its presentation as promoted on groupon.

It was awful. The place was dark and cold (we had to keep our coats on). No Christmas decorations, music. The tables and chairs were dirty. It was the worst afternoon tea I have ever had. There was also no food hygiene certificate on display.

It was filthy, smelly, and the offer was not what it stated. Very disappointed.

whilst the food was acceptable,, although I am not aware of toasted sandwiches being part of an afternoon tea, the bar was very dirty. Floors clearly hadn't been cleaned for a good few days, the windows and window sills were filthy and the toilets were completely blocked and almost over flowing. Will not be recommending Fins bar for day time eating, but can imagine in the dark hours it makes a suitable cocktail bar.

Thank you for friendly service and fresh sandwiches! Our afternoon was pleasant enough, but small changes could improve the overall experience. We realised the 'bar' atmosphere prevails and that's fine, but not really conducive to a 'tea'. The simple addition of a plain table cloth and teaspoons (anther than wooden stirrers) would help to make the experience feel more special - in keeping with the pretty cake server. Also, having HOT water to top up the rather luke warm coffee would have been appreciated, as would the 'clearing away' of surplus crockery - which took up space and made the table feel cluttered. The sandwiches were simple but deliciously fresh, the cake was fresh but rather overly sweet (??- not sure if this is just our palette perhaps). The toasted buns were pleasant in taste, but cooled quickly, were possibly too large and rather over toasted(we didn't eat all and felt bad wasting). Perhaps reducing the size and serving them when customers are finished sandwiches and ready for them, would be ideal? I suppose overall we enjoyed our afternoon, but missed the 'special touches' that a 'tea' experience usually holds. (Table cloth, teaspoons, little fresh vase of flowers, small pretty serviettes, dainty sweet eats.) Good luck in possibly tweaking the presentation and attracting more custom.

Really friendly service and good quality cake - would have preferred a variety of little sandwiches but very good value for money
