I found a long hair in my food and showed it to all the people at my table. All agreed it was indeed a long hair. I complained instantly. The waitress took my meal away and asked if I wanted something else. I declined as it had made me feel very queasy. She took the meal into the kitchen, where the owner was, and promptly came back to tell me that it wasn’t a hair but a length of cotton, but told me I wouldn’t have to pay for the meal. I didn’t intend to. There was no apology from the staff. In effect she told me that cotton in my food was acceptable. It clearly isn’t.

Great French restaurant, offering a wide menu of perfectly delivered authentic dishes. Straightforward venue, quiet enough for conversation. Attentive friendly staff. We were so impressed with 6 different dishes to buy the chef's cookbook.

I'm a Londoner, and as such am used to high prices... however, I was shocked to the core after popping into The Terrace Cafe in the quaint village of Lymm in Cheshire for a coffee and slice of cake... whereupon I was presented with a bill of £9.20 I have spent less in prestige London Cafe's for the same.. so left this average establishment with ill feelings of being ripped off. If you intend visiting this Cafe with friends or family... make sure you head to the bank first to take out a loan to cover your table cost 😡🤭 Mr Unhappy (Ripped Off) Customer

A great location in a beautiful village. We only had a breakfast, mine being an omelette but the atmosphere and food was lovely. Great staff and feel about the place.

Had breakfast here with friends, booked table in advance. Friendly quick service. All had full English breakfast which was excellent with coffee, also excellent. Cafe very clean and welcoming, outside seating area looked great. Pricing a bit high but quality of food justified that. Well recommended.

Stopped by for coffee and cake as other establishments in the village were full. Coffee was ok, one cake was good, the other stale. Was shocked when received a bill for over £16. Will not be returning.

We visit this cafe whenever we are in Lymm. We have always enjoyed the experience, and the food has always been good. There is an interesting menu and it is difficult to choose ! This time I had a chicken shawarma wrap which was delicious, and has really tasty salads with it - the one with red cabbage, carrot and raisins especially nice - I wish I had asked for the recipe !

I called in to the cafe after a walk round Lynn Dam. I had avocado and tomato on sourdough toast which was delicious. The service and the coffee were also fabulous!

Visited The Terrace for coffee and cake with 2 friends. We sat outside, however, the menu didn't show prices or details of any cakes or pastries.I Young waitress was very friendly & was able to tell us a few of the cake selections on offer although not the prices. We ordered 4 slices of carrot cake, 2 of us eating a slice whilst there & the other 2 slices to be taken out. On paying our bill (all 3 of us paying separately), I was shocked that my bill came to £9.25 for 1 regular coffee & 1 slice of carrot cake. The problems started when I queried my bill & the young lady dealing with my query was overruled by a very abrupt and, to be honest, a rather rude older woman who, I understand, was the manager! She did NOT like my very polite query about my bill & after a few bad tempered mutterings she acknowledged the error, "recalculated" my bill and instructed another colleague to take my payment that was now £9.75! She then turned away leaving me feeling extremely frustrated and embarrassed. I again queried the pricing of what I ordered & lo & behold Mrs Manager was back arguing that she had worked out my bill & it was correct! It was NOT correct & after finally being told my coffee was £2.70 & my smallish slice of carrot cake was £5.99, I paid £8.69. Carrot cake was nice but £5.99? Most expensive slice of cake I've ever had in any establishment. Mrs Manager was still not done embarrassing me or herself, as on my way out, I stopped for a word with a friend who occupied another table Despite our conversation being private and having nothing to do with what had just occurred, this very rude woman thought it acceptable to shout across the cafe from behind the counter "you've had an apology & it was a genuine mistake". Actually, I hadn't had an apology for the error or her patronising& rude behaviour. I can accept a genuine error, we all make them, but there is no excuse for the appalling behaviour shown by this Manager. What a dreadful example to the younger staff there, not to mention customers. I will never visit The Terrace again & would advise anyone else not to either.

Visited the Terrace for brunch today. The hash browns were a large round sphere and soggy with little taste. Whilst the majority of the staff were pleasant there were a couple of mix ups regarding our order. As the previous review states, the older woman who took our payment was extremely rude. She did not ask how our food was, very dismissive and brusque . When you are spending money and giving your custom to a business, there is an element of expectation, that does not include rudeness. We will not be returning, very disappointing to say the least.

Ordered lunch from a not especially welcoming middle aged waitress ( never smiled and seemed distracted) we waited to be served a good while until by chance she glimpsed and remembered us. My sister specifically asked for the porridge with just honey and I asked for an English muffin with bacon. When we were served hers had raisins in it and mine was an eggs Benedict with bacon. We assumed order not for us and woman I took to be the owner seemed rather disgruntled and returned them to the kitchen with a sigh. After a wait the original waitress appeared telling us that that was what we had ordered . We politely disagreed but said if it was a problem and would waste the food then we would accept it. She huffed and sighed back to the kitchen and again after some while the owner reappeared unsmiling snd obviously put out about the incident. There was no apology ir smile. The food was ok and we paid up and left. I wouldn’t visit this establishment again as apart from very young waitress who could give both older women a lesson in customer service, we found it to be a very disappointing and frustrating experience. I felt like a naughty child reproved by the grown ups and I’m 56!

This is a good cafe, reliable, food is good, service sometimes lacks a little finesse. My example of this is that on my last two visits my friend and I have arrived just before close of breakfast service, presented with breakfast menu, on the first occasion when waitress came over we were told we couldn’t order from that menu. This time(Saturday) we were given the menu, my friend asked how long we had to order, we were told two minutes, if she hadn’t asked we would have been in the same situation. The kitchen closes for 15 minutes between meals. This is quite understandable to change over. My comment is about managing customer expectations. The food is excellent, the cakes are delicious. The home made soups I have tried have been wonderful.

Had a drive out to Lymm for lunch and was recommended this place by 2 lovely local ladies... we were surprised at how busy it was for a Thursday lunch time. Tucked away down an attractive cobbled alley. We were warmly greeted and shown to a table for two, given menus and ordered our drinks (fully licensed premises). Ordered our lunch chicken club and chips... very nice, followed by cake and coffee.
