Terrace Kitchen has build a deserved reputation for both the food and service. Staff were fantastic - really friendly and happy! Food was innovative and very good. We were there for dinner but have been told the breakfasts and lunches are also great!

Excellent food but the service would make us think twice about returning. Long wait for food and the wait staff were quite cold whenever we asked for anything, even the basics (more water, salt and pepper, sugar). A little more attention to these details and it would have been a 5 star review.

I'm hardly a coffee drinker, but the barista that works most days makes such good coffee I have to stop here every morning on my way to work. Only downside to this is sometimes their scones/cookies/muffins aren't out when they open, which would be ideal.
Also come for brekkie pretty regularly and everything is always amazing. Crispy Chicken salad is delish!

I so want this place to do well. Great location, beautiful venue and decor right down to their bathrooms (apart from tacky local posters in hall). But every dish I’ve had while reading promising just under delivers. And it’s just due to over complication. Let eggs Benedict be. Let waffles sing and for goodness sake let toast be toast. One last thing - get decent mixers - why would you pay for a premium spirit to be drowned by Schweppes - over flowing in a flipping tall glass! Argh!

We had a dinner booking for 8 of us and it was truly outstanding and memorable. Food was fantastic and well priced, this includes a drink list. Service was friendly and Profesional. Lamb is a must try and good enough for 4 people plus some sides.A great establishment managed by professionals.
Chef thank you for taking our booking and allowing us to celebrate our special occasion.
