“Great wee stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Stopped hear for a impromptu dinner after struggling to find something that was open before 6pm. Lovely setting, great views out into the bay. There are seats outside that will be lovely in the summer, to windy unfortunately during our visit to enjoy.

The food was lovely, wide selection to choose from. We enjoyed a fish dish and chicken dish. Had a fab pudding of pistachio cake.

Would definitely recommend a visit here. Staff were friendly and pleasant.

“Tea for two ( for four!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

I would highly recommend high tea at Tiffin. The view is great, the decor contemporary and the fully glazed conservatory area is warm and bright. The staff were really attentive and seemed to genuinely care that people were enjoyingntheir experience. In our party of four we ordered high tea for two (£30.00) a glass of prosecco each and additional tea and our bill was just under £50.00 . The high tea for two was superb. Served on a three tier plate with four small sandwiches, four delicious light scones with thick cream and jam and eight superb cakes including meringues and cream. Far too much for two but ideal for three or four!
I would have no hesitation recommending Tiffin for afternoon tea. I had forgotten how great it is to make something special of afternoon tea.

Thank you for your lovely review and we are all so pleased you had such a great time. Our high tea is very popular and back in the UK has won many awards. We are working hard to get the same recognition here in lovely Jersey. Afternoon tea is a great time of day, and as you saw is absolutely packed with happy people enjoying over 50 teas and some delicious homemade treats!
We look forward to seeing you again. Many thanks
Nick

“Tiffin for Two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

I paid my second visit to Tiffin last evening with a friend for dinner and would like to say that I was extremely impressed with the service and the food which was of excellent quality and taste. The staff was very welcoming and the service was of excellent standards. All in all I enjoyed my experience of Tiffin and would most definitely come again and bring other members of my family. I wish you all every success in the future.

Thank you for your lovely review, and writing. The team are so pleased you had a great time with us, and like so many are really enjoying what makes Tiffin quite unique and special. We will keep working hard to ever increase our service and creativity, and will always continue to keep the fun and innovation in our offering. Make sure you book ahead for the best seats in the house as literally every evening and lunchtime is now playing to full houses! It is a credit to our team that Tiffin Jersey is fast getting the reputation it's sister restaurant in Clevedon already holds.
Thank you again. We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.
Kind regards

“Average food at above average price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

We recently went to Tiffins for brunch,which finishes at11.30, we arrived at 11.15 to be told we were 'just in time' and that we would have to place our order immediately. We ordered a bacon sandwich with vine tomatoes and a sausage sandwich. The bacon was cold and looked as though it had been cooked for a while and was dry. I asked for a replacement and was told by the waiter in a slightly sarcastic tone that he would run back quickly with the next one. When it arrived Irealised it was exactly the same slices of bacon as it still had the tomato sauce on it from the first time! So had obviously just been heated in a microwave. I also realised when I had left that on neither occasion did Ihave any vine tomatoes. My Husband thought his sausage sandwich was nothing special either. The sandwiches and two pots of tea cost £17.50. I don't mind paying these prices if the food is above average but this was definitely below average/poor.

We are sorry to see that you felt your experience with us was not as you expected. Just to clarify we do have dedicated times when we serve certain parts of the menu. This allows us and the customer to know exactly what offering to expect at any time of day. Tiffin is also extremely popular and busy so we need a structured menu that helps our customers feel comfortable ordering, which 99% seem to. Breakfast is served right up to and slightly beyond 11-30, so there should have been no issue if you were ordering during this time. After that it is at the discretion of our very busy kitchen.
The bacon we use is dry cure, so will always be lacking the usual fatty taste and glossy look. Our sausages are from the local butcher and very meaty. In both cases we have a big following for the dishes.
Apologies if we fell short of your expectations, but we can assure you breakfast at Tiffin is normally a great and fun experience in a beautiful location.
Kind regards
Nick

Great seafood platter , fabulous fish finger sandwich , great Quiche with salad , lovely setting , waiter, nothing too much trouble .
I would imagine this is lovely for the evening as well as this is right in the Harbour.

Thank you for writing and your wonderful review which I know will only encourage those who have not visited this lovely venue to do so. We get some fabulous comments from our regulars and the visiting public and we will continue to work hard to ever increase our service level and standards.
Thank you again, we hope to see you next time you are passing. If you ever are close to Bristol drop in to Tiffin Clevedon. Fabulous views and wonderful service and food just like Jersey is becoming!
Kind regards
