Today was supposed to be a fun in the sun day where our wider team would head off down to King’s Park for some activities. Unfortunately, despite several days of warm sunshine and blue sky, today was anything but sun and more horrible weather. Grey dark skies, rain blowing sideways, and strong blustery winds did not make for a day outside so plans were shelved and postponed. The day was partly a leaving lunch for a colleague so at short notice, one of our colleagues managed to book a long table in the private dining area of The Terrace Lounge. After a quick look at the menu, I settled on battered fish and chips (a grilled option is available too) which was to go on a list with other orders for pre-ordering.
I had previously enjoyed a double cheeseburger on my visit in July earlier this year so I felt like something different. After avoiding what I could of the rain, we took our seats and after about 30 minutes, our pre-ordered meals started coming out (a better effort than The Belgian Beer Cafe which took over 45 minutes to bring out pre-ordered meals for a group of 6 compared to around 20+). I received two decent sizes of very crispy, darkish golden brown battered fish sitting upon a handful of chips, a salad, and a bowl of tartare sauce with a wedge of lemon to accompany the meal.
It’s a simple meal – fish and chips. However, I did enjoy the version presented to me and I tucked in and particularly enjoyed the chips. I loved the crispy golden batter which may have been slightly overdone in the deep fryer but the fish remained tender. I love tartare sauce and this went superbly with the fish. I also enjoyed the salad which had a lovely dressing. After wiping my plate clean, I certainly left a satisfied customer and I was certainly full. The service was excellent on the day, getting drink orders, bringing out the food, bringing out several drinks. An enjoyable meal which was fortunately indoors as the trip back to the office wasn’t too pleasant.
Terrace Lounge Food Review Summary
Verdict: A very well made fish and chips. The crispy batter may have been in the deep fryer a bit too long but the crispy batter was delicious and the fish tender. I loved the chips and the tartare sauce and the fresh salad topped things off. A decent serving left me a satisfied and full customer. Excellent value meal.
