    Restaurant has a nice view, the staff are attentive, however the food was a bit hit and miss. Starter was essentially bruschetta which was not too exciting, duck was good but not brilliant, dessert was lovely although it's hard to go wrong with panna cotta....

    We have a very pleasant 2 hours in the terrace bar restaurant taking Royal Wedding afternoon tea, for 3 three. We were sat by the window on a gorgeous sunny day, eating lovely fresh sandwiches, mixed scones and clotted cream, and then some special pecan tarts, delicious, rose macaroon, extremely light and not too sweet and a battenburg cake, all washed down with lots of steaming hot teas. Nice choice of teas on the menu. Service was quiet but attentive, sandwiches replenished. There was plenty to eat and drink. The restaurant was not huge, but had a very nice atmosphere. Would return again.

    Great location. We couldn’t see the menu on the website l. The choices on the 3 course menu weren’t to a lot of people’s taste. My husband ordered squid, when it arrived it had a little lemon butter on it but was dry. We asked for maybe some mayonnaise or garlic mayonnaise to be told what we had put on it was a portion. The waitress left us 3 slices of lemon. The choice for mains was very limited mackerel, linguini with veg or Duck. I had Duck which was ok, my husband had mackerel very bland, the skin was all soggy and no seasoning.
    The waiter came to clean the table with a plate and a cloth, missed the plate and punched all the food on the floor, it was at this pint we noticed how filthy the floor was, food pieces all around the tables. Very dirty.
    I have booked many times on Bookatable and this is the first time I have be very disappointed

    It has been a nice afternoon tea. Service is average, chairs have been a little dirty so summerizing I am sure that there are other places in London we’re you can get your afternoon tea. But it was not really bad at all! Good was good, tea, too!

    Central location, nicely set out, great ambience. Loved the live music. Set menu was great value at £25

    Great to have a meal not too salty. The ambience wasn't so good, for such a prestigious location the Terrace is a bit cheaply decorated and disappointing.

    Everything was perfect from A to Z. The food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient. As I had mentioned it was y friend's birthday, she was bought a charming little birthday cake, compliment of the house! The two wonderful waiters sang Happy Birthday! What a treat! Also, there was NO Music, what a relief!
