We were worried about having the dog, but they were more than happy for us to take up two of the outside 3 tables - well lit and heaters too. Brilliant food & brilliant service - would thoroughly recommend.

Make sure you visit here when you are in the area. The endless tapas is excellent value for money. We visited with our two children (8&4), staff were friendly and the service was great! We will definitely be back!

The staff were welcoming from arrival, they were very helpful when it came to explaining the menu and some of the dishes. The service was excellent, very quick. My partner didn't think he liked tapas but he was converted, we thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back again. Their gin and cocktail menus are also very impressive!

Able to fit us in without a booking (thankfully) and only a short wait whilst a table was readied. Food was terrific, the only issue is the temptation to order too much. Have now been there on two separate occasions three years apart so pleasing to see that the standards are still good

Very nice food - we likes all the starters and tapas that we had. Especially lovely spanish omlette, also excellent fresh bread with fondue. Tea came with a really nice spanish biscuit, so nice that I even asked the waitress to see what it was. The cocktail I had was frozen strawberry daiquiri and it was good too. Service was... More

Been to The Terrace several times and it's still a good meal at a very fair price. I think the endless deal would be excellent value for families.

I keep this as short as i can as I'm not big on complaining. We ordered few drinks and some bits to eat(nachos and whitebait). Table in the corner of the bar was obviously not happy and wanted to pay up and go. It doesnt matter if they where right or wrong, but they recieved one of the worst customer... More

This is tapas that is unimaginative and inoffensive. It was not bad but not what tapas can be lacked variety and was not exciting in any way. It assumed customers were after standard in a very bland way though did it OK.

Great atmosphere and very friendly and efficient service. Food was delicious and great to share ( though I refused to share my Gambas Pil Pil! ) My daughter and her friend loved their Raspberry Mojitos and while my husband went for red wine I chose the Summer Special Hendricks Gin with elderflower and a rose petal infusion- whoah! actually maybe...
