Description: The Terrace opened in 2002, by mother and daughter team, Joanne and Sophie. The Terrace holds a prime position in the pretty village of Lymm, with a delightful sun terrace situated beside Lymm Dam. Whether you’re just calling in for a coffee and cake, or a meal, the stylish interior has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for an enjoyable dining experience. Our varied menu will satisfy any taste. We serve freshly prepared food which is all homemade in our five star kitchen, using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Breakfast is served from 08:30 and lunch from 12:00. We aim to cater for all dietary requirements and offer a vegetarian option as well as a gluten free option. Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary needs, so we can ensure we have the foods you want. We have a secure area to accommodate bikes and a covered courtyard for dogs.

I have visited the Terrace several time but only when it's sunny. Although there are many seats inside I find it very dark and uninviting . However on a sunny day the terrace is one of the nicest outside eateries in Lymm. Unfortunately when it's sunny everybody has the same idea so it's best to book. Make sure it the terrace otherwise you may find outside seating also includes the back ally. The quiche of the day is always good and their chunky chips are very special and need to be tried. The quality of the wine glasses have gone up since I last visited but still poor. I am sure they could shift some better wine with better glasses. The place also seems to have done a job lot with some serious naff tea pots and cups & saucers. Maybe they have been salvaged from the late Willow Pool tea rooms? The food is good here but some things are seriously overpriced like the baked potatoes at over £9.00! Book your spot in the sun, choose well and you will have a very nice lunch here.

Thankyou for your review, a bit of critasism is never a bad thing! Think you'll be happy to hear we are planning to fit some fantastic new windows opposite the bar area in the near future which will let so much more light inside... Hopefully this may tempt you to dine with us on those rainy days!

We review the drinks/wine menu every 6 months, I hope some of the next wines to go on will be more to your taste, its hard to please everyone while trying keep the menu from growing out of control.

I'm pleased you enjoyed our quiche and chips! They do sell well!!
Our baked potatoes range from £7.25-£7.75 maybe you had a £9.00 potato else where?

Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.

I've lived in Lymm for years and feel so lucky to have a place like this on my doorstep. Pop in for lunch regularly and never disappoints.

Walking through lymm village on Saturday (lymm walking day) and noticed a little dip in the road. At this point me and my boyfriend are hungry and very thirsty so we stop for a drink. At this point we are offered food as well. We were amazed at the quality of the food and also at the service. Defiantly an a cute little find and we will be returning when next in the village.
