Very nice place would definitely go again the reason I gave it 3 stars is because I had a booking and only got told they wouldn’t be able to accommodate it half an hour before which was not enough time to make other plans as it was my birthday and it kinda ruined my day a bit.

As the place was very quiet I was shocked that when I origanally requested to book for 9 I was advised that we could only have the £40 each party menu. During lunchtimes Monday to Thursday I see no reason why the express lunch could not be offered to parties of under 10 people

Food was average. Service was shocking! We seemed to be an inconvenience to 1 waiter in particular. We went to a backstreet boys pre party. The restaurant was not busy at all so we couldn't understand why the service was so bad. We got attitude from one of our servers. Place it self is beautiful, food just average. Needs some customer service improvements.

The restaurant and food itself was nice but I was a little disappointed with some aspects of service. I wanted to come for afternoon tea for a 30th birthday treat and booked online. At no point does the menu or booking system indicate having to ring up for afternoon tea given there are no options to select. I was then sent a text from the reservation team whether I wanted to add a birthday dessert which I replied to confirming, got a response saying it was on the notes of my reservation but this was not given on the day.

I expected it to be a better than it was. The food was ok. The entertainment was ok. It was my birthday, my daughter pointed this out to the waiter. They then brought me a mini donut with a candle in and a couple of strawberries and blackberries and an inscribed plate with happy birthday. They charged £4 on the bill for this ! Won’t return. Would recommend The Ivy, more friendly and a lot nicer atmosphere.

The whole place is lovely. We booked for 5 for the Menagerie Afternoon Tea, the savouries were absolutely delicious we only wish there had of been more of that, cakes were ok! For the 5 of us we were served 35 cakes which was far too much. So more savoury less cake!! The service was absolutely spot on and the complimentary birthday plate was a lovely added extra. We will certainly come again. X

Very very busy and noisy which is fine but music could be turned down just a touch and it would have been perfect! Service a little slow and had to ask for drinks a couple of times but the servers were pleasant. There was an error made on the booking so couldn’t have afternoon tea but the food we had was still great.

Very good restaurant, I would say the sofa meeting the table to eat needed to be higher did almost feel likeI was sitting on the floor.

Entertainment was fantastic! Music is a slight too loud if you’re having a good chin wag. You feel likeyour shouting a tad.

Food was superb but service was slow. Our allocated waitress was lovely but the attitude of some of the other waiters/supervisors was appalling. Also when cocktails are £11 each, ‘we’ve ran out of garnish’ isn’t quite acceptable. Don’t advertise a pre concert deal if it means your patrons are going to miss the concert due to your poor service!

We pre ordered but waited an hour for the food. Then the order wasn’t complete so in all it took us 1hr 20mins to receive all of our order. The sandwiches were awful - cheap bread that had sat for ages and was hard. The scones were like rocks. I had the menagerie afternoon tea which was lovely and the cakes were really nice. A terrible experience overall, everything took a long time to receive. The worst afternoon tea I have ever had and the poorest service I have had at an afternoon tea experience.

We traveled here for the Spice Girls from the US and knew we wanted to try afternoon tea. I found this place the night before and made a reservation. It was the best last minute find ever. The ambience and decorations are perfect for that must have Instagram picture. If that’s not your thing the food and cocktails are great. It was definitely one of the best meals we had in the UK!

Second visit and came with a friend for their brunch which is divine. Went for the bottomless brunch which was incredibly tasty and they were flexible and also allowed for a mocktail version of the drinks included in the bottomless experience.

Would highly highly highly recommend for both dinner and brunch!!

Our first visit, taking our Daughter out for brunch as she lives quite close by and thought would be a nice bank holiday treat. We did expect the restaurant to be busy, but it wasn't at all really, which is a pity as would have helped with a fairly muted atmosphere. Service was good, and should be as we had a dedicated waitress for the duration of our stay, Food also good, but not outstanding, main issues were worn out fixtures, our booth seating was marked with stiletto heels and many small holes (obviously dancing on seats encouraged in the evenings), light fittings broken in parts, scuffs and scratches all over the place, shelves and window sills haven't seen a duster in some time. Gents toilet did have an unpleasant odour and neither hand drier worked, also cleaner left equipment on the floor. Would I return again? - probably unlikely.

1st time here and won’t be going back unfortunately. The food was ok, but the surroundings weren’t great. Felt a bit like a canteen and to me it se med like the owners had tried to make it look a bit like The Ivy, but failed miserably. It all looked a bit cheap & nasty to be honest. 😕
