*Please contact our bookings office for all reservations on 01273 821 218 ext.1 or email us at

*Our office hours are 10.00am - 6.00pm seven days a week.

*Please note we do not take reservations at Riddle & Finns The Lanes. 

*When making a booking at Riddle and Finns The Beach we ask for your acceptance of the following cancellation policy: we require credit/debit card details on bookings for Friday night through to Sunday lunchtime. We do not charge the card unless in event of a no-show. We then reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee of £15 per person. Credit card details are stored securely through our online booking system, via a company called Stripe. 

*We extend this bookings policy to bank holidays and graduation week during July and August. 

*All our reservations are for inside the restaurant. Due to the changeability of the weather, our terrace tables are allocated on a first come first served basis. We operate a waiting list if the terrace is full.

*Due to the popularity of our window tables, we are unable to reserve a specific table. They will be allocated on arrival. 

*We are a family friendly restaurant, please let us know when the little ones are joining you so we can accommodate them. 

*Unfortunately we do not accept bookings for hen or stag parties at the restaurant.

*We will hold tables for up to 20 minutes after the booking time. If you are running late please do let us know. 

*We do not allow dogs in the restaurant (exceptions for guide dogs). 

*A discretionary service charge of 10% will be added to your bill. All proceeds go to the staff. 


We thank you in advance for your co-operation.
