Here's a review from various members of the Support for Learning team after our Christmas Lunch Fantastic value for money, really filling and tasty. Well done to students and staff. Lynne The students where very professional and polite, the food was amazing. Will defo return Paula I thought the menu was really good – I could have eaten all 3 choices on each course. The food was delicious, I really enjoyed it. It was really well-presented (I felt like I was on Masterchef) and really tasty! The students did well serving too! Cheers Lorna It was rather splendid. The ambiance along with the outstanding service and the wonderful décor truly one of my culinary experiences of the year. And the food were nae bad either. Matt The staff welcome was prompt and professional. The menu and food ordered was served efficiently. Food was delicious – my only negative would be that the sprouts were a little more than al-dente but it was all super tasty and beautifully presented. Lisa Food was amazing as always, students very professional and the were very careful when dealing with me allergy requests. Presentation of food fantastic Claire

Christmas Menu - Starter, main and dessert were all excellent. Portions were large and well presented although I would have liked more gravy with my turkey but this is my personal choice. The room was nicely decorated clean and warm. The staff were enthusiastic, attentive and helpful although you could tell they were nervous but did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend the Terrace to others and will return in the future. Excellent value for money.

Food was really excellent. Minor issue with sprouts slightly under-cooked did not detract from the overall experience. We have eaten here before years ago but this was far superior. Supervisory staff were on the ball and the students worked hard to look after us. Will definitely try The Terrace again.

Was a little disappointed with the food. The pork in breadcrumbs had not had the fat removed. I don't eat the fat on pork unless it is incredibly crispy, so I had to scrape the breadcrumbs off to see what I was eating and leave the fatty bits. it would have been much nicer with the fat removed before cooking or a leaner cut chosen. I felt the meal could have done with a bit of potato or rice with it. The dessert I chose just tasted and looked like an ordinary cream meringue nest with some berries, though my friend and I didn't expect that from the title on the menu. Otherwise everything was good thanks.

Great lunch as always at the terrace. The quality of every aspect was really high. When you consider that the young people providing the food and service are in training it is fantastic. Our server, Chris, was only 16 and while he made a couple of really minor mistakes he recognised it, fix it and was completely gracious and clearly cared. This young man is a credit to himself and the college. He was pushing himself forward to learn and improve. Go Chris!

I, of course, am going to be biased as I work with our fabulous students and staff. Lunch was delicious, each course was well presented and tasty. It was a pleasure for me to show off our students skills! Thank you.
