    Eating at the Terrace was ideal for my grandson and me because we did not have a lot of time. The food was pleasant enough without being overly sophisticated. We shared 4 small plates of vegetable and meat dishes. I felt some of the prices on the menu were high such as £15 for 'cheeses to share', but then I am not familiar with London prices.

    Dined many times in the past but really disappointed with the food this time. Small plates but nothing seemed to go with each other.

    It was a most enjoyable visit The staff were helpful and informative. Loved the courgett sticks the bread and tapanard was delicious and the shrimp and avacardo tasty.
    my sister and husband enjoyed the polenta cake and I the chocolate and ice cream.
    The experience was enhanced by sitting outside with the view over the Thames

    excellent food, indifferent atmosphere. Would be better to see the view from the tables

  • ((((( 31 August 2018 by Honor from LONDON

    The staff were extremely helpful, dealing with our many questions satisfactorily. My daughter couldn’t eat many foods due to allergies and there’s nothing more that could have been done to assist her. The manager, waiter and waitress could not have been nicer. The food was delicious but, I did feel, rather rich.
    I will definitely eat with you again, even though it was rather pricey

    The venue is lovely.
    The food was very poor.
    Service really good.
    It was a hot night and the air conditioning wasn’t working.
    Constant overload announcements concerning the theatre.

  • (((** 29 June 2018 by Roger from Kent

    The Terrace is a good venue, particularly if you are actually out on the terrace and the weather is fine. The food is good but not great and could be improved - the shrimp dish was very bland with small frozen shrimps used. Some of the dishes are very good however and they need to up rheir game with some of the lesser dishes. It is a 7 out of 10
