Reading a majority if the reviews below, I cannot be sure I visited the same restaurant!
This was my 3rd or 4th Visit to The Tea Terrace in the last few years and we will most definitely be back again.
We popped in for lunch and we got there just before they started taking orders for lunch which started at 11:30, so we ordered some drinks which came out fairly quickly.
We were perusing the menu and just before 11.30 a lovely young lady came over to advise us she would be able to take our lunch order now, my husband ordered the Club Sandwich (a favourite of his) and I decided to try something new so went for the Croque Monsieur, and as always the portion sizes were pleantyful and well presented with fresh side salads, extra added bonus they tasted delicious! - we waited maybe 10-15 minuets for our food to be brought to us with 2 check backs!
Once we had both finished another waiter came and took our plates and we asked for the menu, this time to order some scones to share - again we did not wait any longer than 5 minutes for our order to be taken and another 5 minutes for the hot tasty scones to arrive!
The service was brilliant - and as for the comments regarding staff who cannot speak English - I'm sure every member of staff I have come across in this restaurant speaks fluent English considering I have visited quiet a few times - possibly people ordering might need to take the plumbs put of their mouths and not instantly be looking down at the staff automatically thinking that because they may not look English therefore they do not speak English!
Thank you again to the manager and all 3 different waiters and waitresses that served us on our visit, we will happily be returning in the near future for some more delicious food and excellent service and would highly recommend the Tea Terrace foe food and service over the likes of Pret or Wagammas! :)
