I wanted to book the wonderful Terrace Restaurant for my wife's 70th birthday but on ringing to book found they would be closed on Tuesday, the day of her birthday.
The gentleman who answered said he would speak to the chef to see if they could open specially, as they occasionally do for a special occasion. He telephoned me back very quickly and said the chef would be pleased to do so and the birthday meal was on.
Given the party consisted of only 4 guests we were made to feel very special and very, very welcome.
The meal was excellent and quite unhurried.
As we waited for our starters we were served complimentary,warm,freshly baked rolls and soft butter.
Our starters of Pate with toasted Brioche was creamy and tasteful. Our guests both chose the mixed fish platter which was said repeatedly to be delicious and beautifully cooked.
My wife and I had Beef Bourginon, the beef melting in the mouth and delicious sauce.
We were rather full after this wonderful feast and shared a trio of deserts, followed by tea and coffee.
A bottle of excellent Prosecco and a medium wine topped it all off.
We cannot thank the staff enough for making a memorable birthday even more special.
If ever you visit Ripon do not miss this excellent restaurant.

Another fantastic visit to The Terrace for my birthday treat last week.

Once again the food was fabulous and the evening was made even better by Chef's parents being on front of house duty during our visit. This is one of the very best places to eat for miles around and we are happy to make the 30 mile round trip from home to eat here and cannot wait to visit again soon.

Went as a large group today for Sunday lunch. Staff were really lovely, we had two small children with us and they couldn't have been more helpful. The surroundings are lovely and the views of the cities cathedral from the terrace is probably the best in ripon. Really hope people give this restaurant a try, deserves to succeed :)

Since moving to Ripon last December we had tried a few of the good restaurants in the centre. Last night we discovered a lovely new addition which is well worth a visit. The smoked haddock fillets with new potatoes and spinach were beautiful. My partner had a half lobster with thermador sauce and salad which was also first class. We shared a medley of petite sweets for dessert which were equally delicious. The ambience was very pleasant and there was a varied choice on the menu. We will definitely be visiting The Terrace again.

Pre-booked The Terrace for our second night in Ripon for the Tour De France. Table for two. Beautiful setting and gorgeous terrace and interior.

Were not disappointed at all. Had a pate starter to share and both chose different fish mains, husband had sea bass and I had mixed fish grill. Complimentry warm buns with oils were provided. The white wine we ordered could have been colder. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert.

Lovely place and good service and very clean. Very nice.
