I particularly enjoy the quesadilla and calamari as starters, and their salmon main. I have not had the chance to sample dessert yet due to the large portions of the first two courses. Their coffee is also not bad.
Service is a little slow but tolerable, but what made this 5 star for me was the food and the fact that you can use the Tastecard for 50% off food bill every day of the week. Perfect for a nice Sunday lunch. :)
I'm in there on a regular basis and the staff are fantastically friendly. The cocktail menu is extensive and the bar staff know exactly what they are doing in making them.
The large circular room surrounded by large windows is perfect for letting in the best of the light. Even on dreary days there is a lovely feeling in there. There is a good mixture of soft seating (sofa's and armchairs) and table seating. They are starting to look a bit shabby after all these years but they have actually started the process of having them re-covered. You can also sit outside on the balconey (great for smokers who dont want to have to go downstairs for a cigarette) and it gives a great view of the Broadway (it looks much better up high). The day time music is usually great. Its very comfortable for an afternoon or evening drink either on your own or chilling with friends.
There is a bar menu and a main menu and you can eat in the restaurant section or the bar area. My preference is the bar area because of relaxed feel and the great light. The food is not cheap, but then NO food is cheap in Wimbledon and in comparrison to other restaurants in the area its very reasonably priced. The food is generally lovely and the fajitas are really good, but the dish I have to rave about is their Thai Green Curry. Its really tasty, perfectly spiced and full of flavour with good after heat - much better than the Thai restaurant just down the road.
My criticisms? It can get too loud and too crowded when you get late into the evening, but it still has good atmosphere. It is starting to look a little shabby as everywhere does after a few years (scuff marks on the wall, dust in the places that cant be reached by the daily cleaning, a few stains on the soft chairs etc) but they do appear to be tackling that and I hope they finish a full premises spruce up to get it back to its former glory. I also wish that they would let you get settled in to a particular seating area and allow the bar to get fuller and fuller before they tell you that table you are sitting at is reserve and you will have to move shortly. I have no problem with them reserving tables, but the reserve signs should go on the tables immediately after lunch service - that way if you sit at the table you know exactly when you have to move and you have the option of choosing another table if you know you plan on staying later rather than suddenly find all the other tables have now been taken. Beyond that I cant really fault them, I always have a great time in there
I definately recommend this as a place to go
It is awkward that a place like this refused to help me to charge my laptop, when I was abot to lose important information on my laptop. After all, this is the 21st century and a venue like this should be prepared for business people meeting up for a coffee over an informal meeting.
Unfortunately, their electrical wiring seems to be on the dodgy side, as their electrician told them that a 35 Watt laptop charger could overload their entire electrical installation. Makes you wonder…
Too bad, could be a good venue, but staff really needs to improve.
This bar is located literally next to Wimbledon tube station and is a nice place to go for dinner, a drink or a dance at the end of the night. I’ve been there in all three scenarios and had a good time in each of them. They of course charge to get as the evening progresses but it’s a nice place to go at the end of the night after being at a pub for a few hours and you want to dance the rest of the night away. It gets pretty busy and there is no dance floor but if you find yourself a little area away from the bar then you should be sorted!
Great bar. Can get a little messy after about 10:30 but a great little place to dance the night away at the height of Wimbledon. Close range from wimbledon for those who live anywhere close to a district, south west train or tram stop!
This is one of the nicest restaurants with an outdoor section in Wimbledon high street. Sitting at the top of the Centrecourt Shopping Centre, with the entrance just outside Wimbledon station, its convenient yet takes you away from the maddening crowds.
Inside is airy and large with comfortable seating arrangements. Outside is more cramped, but has the advantage of getting lovely sunlight.
They make really good cocktails and are reasonably priced. The food is excellent, whether you are having salads or burgers or something more exotic. The service is fast, friendly and efficient.
I was really pleasantly surprised when I popped up to make the most of the last of the summer and will definitely be going back.
Was in there last night and it was awesome! My first time sampling Wimbledon’s scene and I was not disappointed.
The food was delicious- I had the surf and turf which was steak, calamari and king prawns + side. Sides had loads to choose from like garlic and herb mash and fancy veg but as I had steak I stuck to chips! (Price: £14.95)
I opened a tab at the start of the night, which is great when u want to treat a friend but dont want that awkwardness when the bill comes. I had a glass of house white, think it was £4.75 and it was delicious.
Only not having 5 stars as there is no dance floor and I think it shuts at 11????!!!?? Such a shame
The bar staff are super friendly too and up for a bit of banter. They’re not bad to look at either!
The Terrace Bar Wimbledon is located above the Centre Court Shopping Centre, next to the side-exit of Wimbledon mainline and tube station.
There is a lift but it is very slow and not always working, so its easier (where possible) to take the curving staircase to the bar which is located upstairs. Access can also be via the Food Court on the top floor of the shopping centre, during main shopping hours.
The bar is in two parts - the main bar area, then up behind that is a two-tier restaurant area, although you can drink where you like! The bar can hold up to 250 people for private parties, and they are also happy to block off an area of the restaurant (especially the top tier, which has access via the shopping centre) for private groups. Adjacent the bar is a patio area, which has patio heaters for those chillier days. A nice spot for coffee and a catch-up!
Service is always fairly good, with a good range of drinks and plenty of wine available by the glass 'tho it is cheaper to buy the bottle! They also have a range of cocktails available, quite a nice size list with some unusual ones listed!
Food is consistently reliable, with the lunch menu being a favourite for shoppers, especially at weekends. They even have a wood-burner to fire up homemade pizza, which is a nice touch.
It's difficult to say what the main clientele are like, it really is a broad spectrum - from the youngsters (early 20's) right through to those nearing retirement age in the evenings, 'tho not on the nights when a DJ is in residence (Fridays).
