Service was terrible. Very slow and not attentive. Had to wait a very long time for food and for plates to be cleared away.

Great location and superb food, service and setting. The staff were very friendly and helpful and in no way stuck up. Repeat visits essential to try and work your way through the menu, because it all looked very good.

The service was friendly on the occasions we saw someone, the food took too long to arrive also my main course should have been hotter. It took much too long to get the bill and ages for someone to take payment. Whilst I like The Ivy it seems that whoever was manager that day needs to pay more attention to the way things are run. There seemed to be plenty of staff but maybe they need more training and managing.

Very disappointing experience. Regular visitor to Harrogate Ivy and expected similar standard given the menu is exactly the same. The two sole dishes were both overcooked & my husbands minute steak was returned.

A wonderful setting for an enjoyable occasion, with family and friends. Lots of menu choices for all tastes and preferences. The non-alcoholic cocktails to start were great fun. We found the ambiance to be happy, friendly and bubbly. The service was professionally discrete, if not fast - but for so many delectably prepared tasty dishes, while you're enjoying great company, this is not a problem. As a colleague shared afterwards in agreement with my praises, 'you really feel you've been somewhere special, don't you?' Thank you very much.

The Ivy always brightens our day from the congenial greeting to the brilliant interior to the delicious scent on a journey to the rest rooms. We mostly visit for a good long Sunday breakfast, sitting in complete comfort with newspapers and copious cups of coffee. Recommend any of the dishes involving fashionista avocado! This is my husband's only opportunity to eat kippers as I'm not kipper friendly at home! Staff are friendly and efficient.

The staff really make this place. It already has the vibe and reputation and the food is great. The starters in particular were spectacular (including the vegan jackfruit option). Mains were good but not quite as spectacular. I’d love to see a couple more vegan options (not salads) please. Our experience was thoroughly enhanced by the charm and humour of every member of the Ivy team. So, a big thank you to them for making my daughters’ 25th and 26th birthdays a very special event.

Excellent service & although big & noisy, you are not on top of each other.
Very good choices & prompt with extra drinks. Slightly pricey, but a great experience. Some very noisy groups, but it was a Saturday night, so not a surprise.
Seemed a destination to be seen in.

We have waited a long time to visit The Ivy in Bath and it was so worth the wait! The food was utterly divine, we are still talking about it and planning to visit for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea! The cocktails were luscious. The staff could t do enough for us and were so lovely and accommodating. Such an incredible place, can’t wait to visit again!

We were in Bath for my daughters 18th birthday and book The Ivy on the recommendation of a friend. We could only get a table for 6pm which was a bit early , however ended up working out. Everything was first class and the wine, food , service and vibe were top notch. I had trouble making choices as so much appealed and when the bill came I was pleasantly surprised as I would say it was good value for money when you consider the overall experience.

Considering it’s the Ivy I had expected more. Food ok but the service was poor and the front on house staff weren’t very friendly. It doesn’t cost anything to smile!

A delicious breakfast and truly excellent service!easy to book online and despite a busy breakfast time, we were served promptly and were not rushed at all.we were even offered a complimentary coffee! The waitress had a lovely smile and was very attentive. Our salmon and scrambled eggs were tasty and we were offered toast in the side too.we would certainly have breakfast here again.

We went for my mother’s birthday for a cream tea at lunchtime but we didn’t know that cream tea couldn’t be served until 3pm. The staff there were amazing and spoke to the chef who let us have the cream tea. The staff ended it bringing my mum a small raspberry bun with a lit candle in it. They made her birthday so special. Thank you.

Booked a table for Dads 80th B'day, we arrived incredibly early but this was no problem and our table was ready if we wanted it. We decided a drink at the bar first. Both Mum and Dad (as well as us) had a fab time. Only slight problem was some unruly child running about and screeching at top scream. Great to see the vegan options too.

Excellent venue it feels like an individual resturant and not a chain.
Attention to detail and never hurried.
Our 4th visit and it was as good as the 1st visit.
Super choices and when the food arrives it tastes as good as it looked.
Plenty of drink choices too.

After a colossal disappointment at the Pump House, we were prepared for yet another tourist trap failure. They almost completely defied expectations. We arrived on time for our reservation and were offered a table in the entrance. I don't know what it is about us, couple in their 60s, but regardless of reservations we are always offered the least desirable table. Of course it was rejected. Not an issue as on a Tuesday evening in November occupancy rate was well below 70%. Why irritate your customer?

The table we preferred required resetting, a brief sojourn at the bar and seamless transfer to the table reset the evening. Service was crisp and accurate. Food selection and quality excellent and while cocktails were expensive (overpriced and overly fancy in almost every venue in the UK), wine was reasonable. We would return and would recommend the Ivy's ambiance to any visitor to Bath. Just push back a little on table selection. You are paying a premium price, insist on what you are paying for.
