Finlay & Sons is pretty much my favourite place. It’s located in Inglewood on Beaufort Street an area which is really bubbling of late with the weekly Inglewood Night Markets plus the addition of some cool shops and apartments. It’s what Mt Lawley should get back to being.Talking to the owner, I found out that members of his family have coeliac disease. So his knowledge of what steps need to be taken to offer coeliac friendly meals is spot on. He totally understands the importance of cross contamination and its effects, plus what it means to actually include gluten free meals on the menu and not just wacking a (GF) next to things. There are however dishes that contain gluten on the menu, but when preparing gluten free meals, separate areas are used. Separate boards are also dedicated for use, plus knives and utensils and the also fryer is totally gluten free. This information has also been passed onto all the staff who are all super knowledgeable and really helpful. The menu is clearly labelled and easy to follow. They do ask that you tell the staff any allergies you have and they’ll make sure you are catered for correctly. The best thing though, is the quality of the food. Everything is amazing the servings are big and it is not stupidly over priced. The menu changes up from time to time so there is always something new to try. As the owner said to me once “there’s no reason that gluten free can’t be tasty”.
It’s no secret that I love my tea and the best thing about Finlay & Sons is their tea pots. They are huge. The cups are also huge with with big handles you can actually grab. So i’m happy. I also love my sport, especially my football. The boss is also a sport nut and is always good for natter about the premier league or the chances of Leicester City winning another title. So, yeah. Tea and sport and good food. It’s my jam. I love it. I’m not a massive coffee kinda guy these days, but I have had a couple and so far the coffee has always been good.
I’m struggling to find anything bad about the place. Definitely make some time to check it out.

As we all know, coeliac disease is a serious condition. People have different tolerances to cross contamination and different allergens. So as always, please be vigilant and do your research before eating or drinking anywhere. The information on this website is accurate at the time of publication.
