We arrived at 8:10pm for our scheduled 8:15pm table for our daughter’s 18th birthday. Having been made to stand outside for 15 minutes in the cold we were ushered inside and made to wait in the foyer for a further 15 minutes. After complaining about the wait we were shown to our table at 8:45pm. This left just 1hr 15 mins of our daughters special night. To say we felt rushed is an understatement - we appreciate that it was the last night before lockdown and it would be shutting it’s doors at 10pm, however we felt unfairly treated having spent a lot of money on a meal for 4.

The overall experience was good, it just felt very rushed. We ordered our main and it came within 3 minutes. The staff seemed very stressed but this was understandable due to how much pressure they was under being the last night before lockdown. I definitely would return as it’s one of my favourite restaurants but out of all the times I’ve been this was probably my least favourite.

Understandable pressure the night before lockdown - but asked to leave with half a pint left really left a poor impression. Lovely decor, drinks slightly overpriced, and food tasty but nothing to write home about. Given how much we spent - to be essentially turfed out after no more than 90 minutes.. wouldn’t recommend

Excellent attentive service.
Small birthday cake and candle presented to my daughter without prompting.
All Covid safety precautions carried out and everywhere spotlessly clean.
Will definitely return when business (hopefully!)resumes on 2nd December

Poor service - Told the waitress we had already eaten elsewhere and would get some starters to take away. After ordering she then said we can’t take anything away. On the way out saw other customers with take away boxes with food inside! They were told they couldn’t bring food in (cake for a birthday) and that they could take food away. We were told we can bring food in (cake) but couldn’t take food away! Clearly need to decide what their policy is!

Lovely visit, thought the variety of dishes on the menu were a little boring, but we put that down the the COVID situation, and the wastage you are other establishments must face!
We love the friendly staff and the ambiance. Will be back!

So sad that our visit to The Ivy was just three days before the lockdown. Nevertheless it proved another memorable occasion for my wife and I and we look forward to returning when the regulations are relaxed.

Disappointed one young couple stood in reception neither wearing a mask. Also we had not been informed prior to arrival that you could only access the table at the exact time it was booked and could only wait in the reception area a maximum of 15 minutes before the table was booked. Was refused entry to the building until 15 minutes prior the table booking. An email or text with that information would have made the visit more pleasant .
