There was a lot of confusion over what dishes were suitable for Vegans and several orders were made only for another waiter to come back from the kitchen after a few minutes to apologise the order wasn’t in fact Vegan. It would be a good idea to create a short Vegan menu of just a few dishes, rather than just vegetarian options.

Other than that, the lunch was very good.

Lovely food and brilliant service. Very attentive and great atmosphere. This was a treat for a special birthday so was bit more expensive than we would normally pay.

Always a pleasure to visit the Ivy in Bath. It lifts the spirits on a dark winter's day with its cheery reception and beautiful bright decor. We mostly come in for a leisurely Sunday breakfast or brunch with lots of newspapers to read with us. The staff are delightful and the ambience happy. What more could one want? Oh yes, and the food is very satisfying!

Food was lovely and the server very attentive. The only issue was delays with the bar - some of our drinks never arrived and the table next to us had finished their meal before they got theirs.

We do like it there. But it does depend on your server . We had a young girl. New I think. Not helpful. There are a couple of waiters who are fantastic and make the whole different. To have an ok night or fantastic night

We were really disappointed with our meal at The Ivy in Bath on Valentines evening. The service was slow, my main meal was really disappointing...I ordered the Shrimp and Avocado burger from the 'Specials' menu, thinking it would be separate pieces of shrimp and avocado but instead it was some sort of mushed up pate which was grim. My husband's burger was overcooked, so he was unhappy too. I then had a Latte (which took 20 mins to arrive, we had to remind the Waiter) after the main, which was half froth and luke warm, overall a very poor and disappointing evening, we wished we bought a 'dine in meal' which never fails to disappoint.

Venue is stunning, our steak sandwich to die for but the service wasn’t great. Our original waiter was attentive & efficient but then I think he went off shift & we had to wait to get a drinks menu after our food & then sat waiting for 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order so we ended up leaving.

Great food and service as always, but table right next to the waiters serving table, which spoilt the ambience a bit.

Fabulous experience. Great atmosphere and decor and the food was amazing. Great quality and as we had dishes from the set menu, brilliant value too. We had my 2 year old daughter with us and the waiter was amazing with her. They even stored our pushchair away from the table for us! Highly recommend and will be going again for sure!!

Wonderful interiors, very stylish. Attentive & friendly staff. Menu a little disappointing. The tasty Malabar fish curry has been replaced by a rather bland duck curry. For us, too many vegan & vegetarian options!
BlackBerry sundae was quite delicious. We always start with a plate of zucchini fritti to share whilst we are reading the menu.

Another fabulous lunch at the Ivy in Bath. Great food and first class service. Only one small observation, was the dessert menu was a bit disappointing, as nothing really grabbed us like it usually does.

We live in Bath and visit on a reasonable regular basis.
We were disappointed in the Zucchini which was very salty and the chips that came with the main meal that had been salted. At this level of cuisine, we would have expected to have been able to chose to add out own salt.
The salt issue took the luster of what we had hoped to be a special lunch.
