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.
Apart from the 1 sprout , the whole meal was fantastic and a credit to the chefs and instructor . We would definitely book again
This place is amazing, food is phenomenal and staff are super friendly, 5 star good without the price tag. I come here often and would highly recommend it.
Great night, fantastic value and wonderful service, so lovely to chat with the students and get a chance to support via the raffle. Thanks to all
I dined with a friend and we both were delighted with the choice , the presentation and the quality of the food we ate.The food was AMAZING.The waiting staff were polite and attentive from offering to hang up our jackets to regularly checking we were ok.A huge thank you and well done to all the students.
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.
We had a beautiful meal once again ,could not fault anything . Lovely staff taking care of everything. So good we have already booked for January. see you then
Excellent quality meal and professionally presented by the young students very attentive definitely up and coming professionals .Cant fault any of the staff well organised lunch
Had a lovely meal service was fine,though our waiter was somewhat nervous/awkward but understandable as he was quite young ,brilliant value will definitely be back!
Fine dining for a fraction of the cost
A truly excellent experience can’t wait to visit again
Fantastic service, fabulous food at a good price. Will visit again. Felt a bit rushed though & restaurant could be made more atmospheric with candles etc.
Dear Ian, Thank you for your positive feedback. I am sorry you felt a bit rushed, and we normally have candles lit for our evening service. I'll make sure to pass on your words to our students Looking froward to having you back at the Terrace
First time but will book again as we were very impressed!
top notch, as always ;-)
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!
Dear Ian, Thank you for your lovely words, I'll make sure to pass on your wonderful feedback to Chris
Lovely food, I will be coming back.
Lunch was absolutely amazing, very attentive staff with very friendly atmosphere, I will definitely book again
Dear Carolann, Thank you for the kind review. Looking forward to having you back!
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.
Great food, staff and value for money
Dear Linda, Thank you for the lovely review!
We really enjoyed our meal. The choice was good, everything was well presented and tasted great. The service was pleasant and very quick. A great experience, seeing the college in action. Pricing is very reasonable too.
Excellent experience and food is delicious
