    Food was top quality & the staff were excellent! Restaurant had a nice ambiance & lovely setting. We were celebrating an occasion & the staff recognised this & gave us both another glass of champagne each on the house which was so lovely & appreciated.

    Service was good, but very attentive at times then overlooked at other times. Food was great and the view was lovely, the sun got quite warm though so we had to pull down the blinds and block the views - I recommend sitting one row away from the window to avoid this. I would go again.

    We were celebrating my wife & her friend's graduation. They had been awarded honorary B Ed degrees from the University of Roehampton some 56 years after leaving Southlands College, Wimbledon. The ceremony was at the Royal Festival Hall & the walk to the Terrace was very convenient.
    We all had a lovely time, having the Classic Afternoon Tea, with our choice of teas. The situation was perfect, the attention of the staff exemplary & the food delicious. We loved the crockery & just hoped that it was British manufactured!
    We noted that there were others from the graduation ceremony also at the Terrace.
    The venue was appropriate because all three of first met at Charing Cross Station in February 1961 on a blind date - there were 4 of us on that occasion!
    Excellent all round - thank you - & we had a discount of 25%

    Delightful ambience, great service, gorgeous china and delicious sandwiches and pastries. We were lucky enough to be seated at a window table just as the sun came out - further enriching our experience.
