I had been advised that The Terrace Cafe was under new Management recently so visited it in Mid November. The cafe had some new staff and that initially would continue with existing menu. Service was very good and so was the food served. I will visit again soon to see how the Cafe progresses.

Rang to see if the restaurant could do a takeaway, was told no problem and lady kindly sent the menu to my phone. Food was ready on arrival, ordered chicken parmos, great portion sizes, proper hand-cut chips and fresh salad, each for £6.95, made a nice change from getting Chinese, Indian etc. Will definitely do this again.

Situated at the quieter end of the town it is near the shops and fronts onto the main High Street and backs onto a handy car park just off the sea front. Quite small and decor is fairly basic with wooden tables and chairs but also sofas and there are usually local artist prints for sale on the walls. Nice quiet ambience so you can hear yourself speak! and good place to meet up for lunch etc. There is a view of the sea from the back window, which is a plus.
Good choice of home-cooked food on menu, from snacks and light bites to meals and, altho I can't remember its title, friend and I both opted for the ?cheese crumb topped pulled pork and sweet potato fries, which were delicious! There are displays of cakes on the counter which look inviting. Have previously been for set Afternoon Tea there too, which is plentiful. Prices are reasonable and cafe is clean and tidy, all in all an enjoyable experience and worth dropping by when you are in Redcar. With prom and beach just across the road you can walk off any extra calories!!

Lemongrass Thai Cuisine

Reviewed By mikelouise - UK England

We have been to this restaurant many times and went again recently even though we had said we were going to leave it a good while before going again.
LemonGrass 'was' my favourite Thai restaurant. When the last few meals we had were just 'ok' or mediocre - we wrote the following email to the owners in January this year.
Dear sir

Six of us also were booked in with the Lemongrass on New Years Eve and at that point the food served was not as good (taste wise) as in past times when we have booked with you
We appreciate that it is hard for a restaurant to be 100% all of the time and so we put that visit down to ‘one of those days’

We come to the Lemongrass fairly regularly and have done so since the restaurant opened some years ago

Our last booking with you was just last week at 2030hrs on Friday 19th January, again for six persons – sorry for delay in contacting you.

The six of us agreed on Friday that the food has lost its ‘vibrancy’ and has not got the same ‘depth’ of taste as it used to have in the early days of the Lemongrass

Two of us ordered Phad Kra Prow which is one of your hottest and one of our favourite dishes but both of them were ‘fairly mild’ only and nowhere near as tasty as they used to be.
The others at the table also had minor complaints that the food taste was not as good as it was in the past. Rather than send back we thought it best to all eat at the same time.

Please don’t get me wrong. The food quality and taste is ‘Okay’ but Okay was as good as it gets now.

You do ask if everything is alright at the restaurant and we appreciate that that is the right time to complain to you.
When in a group of people though it is not always the right time as we don’t like the air of bad feeling that this puts between us and the restaurant staff at that particular time
It also spoils the night when complaints are raised.

I don’t know why the taste of the dishes is not as good as it used to be?
Whether you have a different Chef or simply that no one tastes the food before it is given to the guests is a mystery. It is however one that should be addressed and soon!

We will use the Lemongrass again but as it stands at present we will be giving it some time before booking with you again.

I hope you resolve this soon as you are one of my favourite restaurants and we only have the one Thai restaurant locally.

I’m sorry for this complaint but I really hope that someone from your restaurant will physically taste and ‘critique’ your dishes very soon and once again get them to have the ‘full depth of flavour’ that they used to have.

Regards
Sadly and our biggest disappointment was that we received no reply at all.
All of us really wish that someone with the palate for tasting Thai food worked in the kitchen once again. We are sure that if this happened the food would get back to normal taste and quality again as it was in the early days. In our group, we all want very much to use the Lemongrass again on many future occasions but we ask - Lemon grass owners - ADDRESS THE TASTE OF YOUR FOOD AND GET IT BACK TO WHERE IT USED TO BE - PLEASE - we all want to come back!

Reviewed By meld33

We came here for dinner on a Friday and the place was pretty busy and lively but a nice atmosphere. Even though the staff were run off their feet with a works do that was in we were served well by them. The food was great - a very nice focaccia garlic bread and creamy mushrooms to start were excellent and a chicken dish and garlic prawns for mains. We were too full for dessert,
A very nice selection on the menu - we were both struggling to make our minds up what to have.
Definitely going to visit again.

Fish And Chips In Fishermans Square

Reviewed By ChrisAJC - Leicestershire, United Kingdom

We were driving from Sunderland along A19 and fancied fish & chips so checked TripAdviser to see if there were any recommendations. Took a calculated chance that this would be worth a visit. We can only endorse the opinions of others - freshly cooked, 2 portions for £7, delicious meal stop on our journey home and well worth the detour from A19.
