christmas at Riddle & FINNS

At Riddle & Finns we have two specially designed menus to help you celebrate the festive season in style. 

Our Magnum Menu is £35 per person and our Jeroboam Menu is £55 per person. We have sourced an amazing selection of ingredients that highlight superb seafood, local flavours and classic Champagne pairings.

These menus are available at The Beach for large reservations with a pre-order from December 1st - 31st.

When making a large party booking at Riddle and Finns on 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, Large Party Bookings and Special Occasions such as NYE or Valentine's Day. 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. 

Cancellations for guests ordering from the Christmas Menus with less than 24 hours notice will be charged.

When booking a large party during the Christmas period please note we cannot seat large groups up on the mezzanine in the window. 

We require pre-orders one week in advance for all large parties from one of two fixed-price Christmas set menus.

A discretionary service charge of 10% will be added to your bill. All service goes directly to the staff. 

We do not split tables for large groups at Riddle and Finns on the beach. 

We do not run individual tabs or split bills for large groups.
