Perfect venue for lunch, polite & friendly staff, small menu but the quality and presentation was excellent, a chicken dish would be a good addition to the main course options. Vegan & vegetarians well catered for. What I like most is the calm and relaxing environment.

We booked for afternoon tea at the start of service. The food was delicious but the sandwiches were a bit dry as if they’d been pre-made and left out for a while. The scones were amazing, hands down some of the best I’ve ever had. The service was a bit slow and our tea didn’t arrive until a while after the food which was disappointing. The experience was good overall but not amazing.

Lovely dining with an outside table at Wisley. Good value menu with plenty of choice. Service was a little slow at times, but it was a very sunny busy day.

Very pleasant. Tasty food. Good service and quite quick. Some dessert choices had changed and not been updated on the menu which was a shame as we got pavlova, not the Eaton Mess we’d hoped for - so a bit too much meringue fir our taste. Happy to recommend and return.

Comfortable seating, staff helpful and attentive.

Starters ok, choices a bit retro and not particularly generous portion. Main courses disappointing choices. Aubergine dish consisted of three thin discs of aubergine, and while tasty was certainly not filling!

Overall, while nothing specific to complain about we would not eat at the terrace again as we have had better food from the Wisley food hall.

Lovely place to dine. Decor is outstanding and acoustics work well so although busy it was not noisy and intrusive.
Food menu is limited to a few beautifully made and presented dishes with fresh, local produce.
Staff are attentive and offer well paced service. Eloise was lovely.
Highly recommend, I'll be back.

We both had a lovely dining experience at the Terrace restaurant, Wisley.
The poached salmon was fresh and delicious. The Wisley burger was great.
The ambience of the Late Live garden event with live jazz band really made for a special evening meal in the summer sun.

Bright and colourful room. Menu needs more choice. Burgers....
Expected more interesting plant based foods given it is RHS. Tuscan pea soup starter had fibrous bits in, v disappointing. Did not look fresh and summery.
Salmon main good.

We were lucky to be given outside table under sunshade. Service was excellent. Had a delay between 1st & 2nd courses but staff came out to apologise & explain the reason why. Would definitely go back & would recommend.

An excellent three course lunch for two people with exemplary service by well trained staff working under a manager who was visible and leading by example as he worked with the team. We chose light salads to start with and followed them with an aubergine dish and an excellent salmon dish, finishing with a light and not too sweet strawberry pavlova. Everything that we wished for in a well designed restaurant on a hot summer's day

Friendly and attentive staff - without being over the top. Lovely afternoon tea with fresh tasting sandwiches, gorgeous fancies, and, for me, just the right size scones with jam and cream. Sparkling white wine was refreshing and locally made! Good choice of teas available, too. Perfect refreshment for after a 6 mile walk around the beautiful gardens.

Wonderful place to enjoy a relaxed afternoon tea, which was what I thought I booked. The Terrace staff accommodated us although our booking was for lunch. They were wonderful. I went online to book through open table but wont willingly do that again. Clearly when I went to change date it removed the Afternoon tea booking and took me back to lunch. Much easier to go direct.

A lovey venue within a beautiful setting. The food was fresh and tasty. Our pavlova dessert would have been much improved however if the meringue base had been homemade instead of the sugary powdery manufactured type. Service was friendly and polite but we had to wait too long for our drinks.

Lovely ambience and decor, we had to call a waiter over but then the service was more attentive. The food was very good overall and nicely presented. The steak dish was a little tough in parts and the meringue dessert very hard and difficult to cut through.
