More Info
The tunes played at Terry’s are as popular as their famous tea, homemade fish finger sandwiches and legendary
breakfasts. Many customers have enquired about the playlist as they tuck into their hearty scran and, well, it had to
be done, so here it is.
“Time For Terry’s” released on June 14th will transport you back to the 1930s and 1940s – the soundtrack to the hustle and bustle and comings and goings at this legendary scoff-spot.
But, who is the enigmatic Terry?

Terry was a chef in the army, his mum was a pastry cook, an old school grafter. Terry himself worked at Smithfield

Meat Market from the age of 17 and in 1982 he opened Terry’s Café. Sadly Terry passed away in 2010. Austin, his

son, a chip off the old block, had worked alongside him full-time since 1995 and naturally took over.

Down at 158 Great Suffolk Street, 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. And that’s why the soundtrack

there is tailor made too, and almost engraved into the picture laden walls as Time For Terry’s tunes have played

alongside others endlessly since the doors opened nearly 4 decades ago; it’s relaxing, comforting, familiar, like a

good old cup of tea.
