Like all good eateries, this place has food at the heart of its ethos, and thanks to the talents of some super experienced chefs, you can expect some exceptional kai on the menu at Terrace Kitchen. Whether it’s smoked, fried, baked or steamed - ingredients here are chosen with care (and some grown right on premises from the onsite garden!) because these foodies know that great food takes great effort. Want a peek at the kitchen staff in action? You'll need to book a spaces at this venue. 

The brunch menu boasts things like brioche waffles, shakshuka and hangover benedict (we’re not judging…) while later in the day things like bao buns, chargrilled chicken and slow-cooked pork take the stage. Offering small, large or shared plates, a visit to Terrace Kitchen can be just as much a solo endeavour or one with a big group in tow. There's three spaces you can choose from Tonic Bar, Dining Room or The Porch. 

All the spaces have been designed with huge attention to detail, so be prepared to feel wowed just stepping in the door. White tiling, natural timbers, plenty of natural light and greenery aplenty - Terrace Kitchen has successfully managed to make a space feel glamorous without feeling pretentious. Upstairs is the sassy sister to the downstairs eatery - Tonic is a beautifully bespoke cocktail bar where visitors are encouraged to cosy up and feel seduced by the classy interior and delicious drinks on offer.
