I love it here! It has a really nice atmosphere and the food is gorgeous! It's especially nice in the summer months when you can sit outside and enjoy the large outside space. The last time we visited it was really busy but they still managed to find us a table and the service is great too.

Went on Saturday night. It was heaving which is always a good sign. Manage to find a table for two - the staff were rushed off their feet but still extremely helpful. We both had steak and ale pie. It was really lovely - maybe just a little burned? But that's just me nit picking. No issues with this place.... More

Visited the Terrace Bar, 13/10/14 for my wife's birthday. Two of us ordered Steak and Ale pie, when they arrived the veg was cold and the inners of the pie were stone cold. When we complained the waitress tried to blame the ongoing kitchen repairs. About twenty minutes later we received hot, overcooked and burnt steak in the pies. We... More

My wife & I enjoyed an excellently presented meal in this well situated & atmospheric restaurant. Service was very good, & the food was delicious, as well as very competitively priced for the quality. The atmosphere was pleasantly quiet, & the surroundings comfortable.

Visited here twice, both times with my partner. The building itself and the decor is lovely and modern. The general quality of the food is good also. But there are a few bad points.. The staff always seem to have no interest in the customer and our experience. We were given menus at the table without a word spoken and... More
