Called into the Terrace for lunch today. The setting is very pleasant, we chose a big sofa which was very comfortable. Quiet atmosphere, which made conversation easy. The only disturbance was the audible shouts of "service" from the Kitchen, surely there is a better system? Food was good, had one dish from the main menu and another lunchtime special. good... More

I was recommended this place by a local, I was not disappointed. I had the scotch egg starter, awesome and the meat pie to follow was also very good.

Brilliant selection on Menu - could have stayed longer and worked my way through the choices. Did not have a bad meal. The breakfast was excellent too.

Came to The Terrace for my husband's birthday, just the two of us. We were given nice seats and there was a lovely atmosphere as several other diners were already in situ. The menu sounded amazing if a bit simple, but we loved the references to locally sourced food so was looking forward to a very good meal. Here comes... More

I live in cockermouth and have visited the terrace bar 3/4 times, and been unhappy every time. The most recent time I had the pork saltimbocca. ... very salty bland polenta, that is said to be creamed (its not) I had to send it back. My partners stir fry was also salty but we didn't want to complain about both.... More

We are local and often call to the bar for a glass of wine and something to eat. The food is of a good standard though both wine and food are on the pricey side, however not unusual for hotel prices. There is a good sized outdoor seating area for summer nights and you can often call in by chance... More

Sunday evening, six of us called in for meal. We found the surroundings, food, price and the staff all fantastic. The citronella candles helped with the insects flying around, it was a warm summer night and we were sitting outside. We are planning to go again very soon. Thank you all at The Terrace Bistro.

We came here as a last minute decision on a Friday night, as part of my friends leaving party. It was around 8.30pm and was very busy outside as the weather was nice. There were a group of 9 of us so we had to put two tables together. We were lucky to get a seat as these two tables... More

As locals we are regular visitors to The Terrace & we popped in today for a cold drink & a bite to eat. After waiting at the bar for 5 mins I was told I would have to wait as the barman had to set up tables. Today is Father's day & I would have expected the staffing levels to... More
