We ordered the set menu, the food was excellent and good value for money. The restaurant was fairly loud but bearable. The service was great, attentive without being a nuisance. Would definitely go again.

Restaurant was extremely busy but having said that, had to ask to order our food and service was quite slow. My butternut squash portion was very small and not value for Money.

I was dining with my friend and her daughter. They come to Bath every year at around this time.

I have eaten at The Ivy for lunch on a few occasions but this was my first time being there in the evening.

We received a pleasant greeting and had a very good table. The service was very good and the staff were helpful. The meal was of a very good standard The pace of service was ideal and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

I’ve never had a bad experience at an Ivy Cafe until my visit to Bath. Despite booking we were kept waiting 30 minutes for our table. The sole meunière was overcooked and mushy. Very disappointing.

Too many young screaming children and no member of staff bothered to take charge and handle this noisy situation. Not what my fellow diners, which were visiting Bath for the day, lexpected from this Ivy restaurant

Outstanding quality food, full of flavour, at very reasonable prices. Enjoyed a seasonal cocktail. Service was excellent, and the place has a wonderful ambiance. The artwork all around is fascinating. We always come here for lunch when shopping in Bath.

Lovely premises as usual. Polite and professional staff. Food good , even if not exceptional. Expensive, esp drinks, and then they add 12.5%!!! Insult to injury.

Disappointed that almost throughout our meal we had a very young baby crying (more than likely bored).
Other than that a truly superb meal and excellent service.
Yes we would like to use the Ivy again.

Arrived early but told we couldn’t come in to sit at the bar as it was full. It didn’t seem to be when we were let in. Told to go away and come back at the time the table was booked for ! Sat at a table at the front which was very draughty. Got a cold blast every time the door opened which was often. Def not cosy. Food was average. A little disappointing to be honest. I’ve had better dining experiences.

We took tea at The Ivy. Their cream teas are exceptionally good value and are served in Bath's joyous and elegant Ivy. Although we booked tea on the first Sunday of Bath's very busy Christmas Market, the staff were attentive but not intrusive, the scones were freshly baked and were flamboyantly served with fresh strawberries! How agreeable!
