You’ve had the breakfasts, you’ve had the lunches, so now Time For Terry’s has taken over the former butcher’s next door and will soon open T For T Coffee House and for the first time ever open its doors for an evening service with a bistro menu and supper club offering.
From June Time for Terry’s will be presenting T for T Supper Club for £30 per head. Customers will enjoy a delicious three-course meal with locally sourced produce from Ginger Pig, Billingsgate, Grovers vegetables and beverages courtesy of Borough Wines, Bermondsey Beer Mile, Monmouth Coffee and bread from Little Bread Pedal. Plus, a curated night’s entertainment – all whilst listening to a seductive selection of music from the 1930s and 1940s from their new compilation CD, also entitled Time for Terry’s.
Amid the red and white checked tablecloths numerous celebrities have appreciated a brew, Eddie Redmayne conducted his interview with American Vogue just to accentuate his very Englishness, and GQ’s comedians of the year, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, were shot here enjoying a full English in white tuxedos.
Since the doors opened nearly 35 years ago as Terry’s Café, customers have been delighted by the delicious food served up amongst the picture-laden walls, with a soothing soundtrack of classic music from a bygone era, where breakfast was for reviving champions, lunch was even better and afternoon tea a must.
The legendary Terry’s own father was a front line chef in the army, his mum was a pastry cook – old school grafters. Terry worked at Smithfield Meat Market from the age of 17 and in 1982 he opened Terry’s Café. Sadly, Terry passed away in 2010 so his son Austin, a chip off the old block who had worked alongside him full-time since 1995, naturally took over.
It still is a family affair – from the distinctive selection of Terry-approved tea to the eat-in or takeaway food, from hot salt beef to the perfect fry up and roast of the day.
