    Lovely afternoon tea but a bit disappointed with the sandwiches as they were crusty. They must have been made for a while. So I asked for the service charge to be removed. I felt as the tea was priced at high end and expected it to be perfect. Still a nice day though.

    We went for a champagne afternoon tea as I had been given a voucher as a gift. Our table was too small to comfortably fit everything on and some of the sandwiches the bread was really stale. However the service was really good which is an improvement on the appalling way we were treated last time. There are better value afternoon teas to be had but it we had a nice treat. Only went as it was a gift and would not pay to go otherwise.

    Lovely place, staff very friendly, it was my daughters birthday & they surprised her with a profiterole with a candle which was a lovely touch. The toilets are awesome. my only comment is my chicken was a little pink so didn’t eat it all.

    My partner was very disappointed with his main meal . Ordered fish full of bones fingers in mouth more than a fork . Did not state on the menu that it was not deboned for £25 was very over priced all it was! Was the fish. Very disappointed I’m sorry to say did put a little downer on the meal as it was my birthday . Was asked would we like water , as it was an extremely hot day we said yes on the bill we was charged £4.75

    It’s fair to say that the Ivy would not have been on my radar when looking for a restaurant to celebrate our 30th anniversary, but the date more or less coincided with my 60th birthday for which my work colleagues bought me a voucher. Any way, as a vegetarian I was very happy with the menu. I had tomato soup which was extremely tasty and then a halloumi dish and a side of chips, both of which were without fault on any level. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the tempo was quick without being hurried. Finally, I knew it would be expensive but I am not used to city centre drinks prices!

    The venue is stunning the service excellent. The starter was very good but the main course we would expect at the Ivy home made chips they are called Ivy chips but were frozen chips :(. Bit of a let down but otherwise great.

    Excellent service from the front door until we left, we weren’t rushed into choosing our drinks and meals, the staff were professional and friendly, making us feel welcome. The food came in good time, it was hot and very tasty we all enjoyed it very much. As we were celebrating one of our party leaving our team and another retiring it was a lovely touch that they were both brought a dessert to mark it. We weren’t rushed into leaving, when we did leave the doors were held open and the staff all said goodbye. It was a great meal in lovely surroundings and a great atmosphere, we will be ret.

    Food and service was excellent, as always. My only criticism is the alcohol is quite expensive also most beers are only 330ml. Also as I was unable to book over the phone and had to use the app the time I wanted to eat there were no tables my only option was 19:00 outside. When I arrived I asked if there were seats available inside I was told yes. So I am not sure how accurate the app is, it’s frustrating that you can speak to somebody BUT saying all that I will go back 👍👍👍👍
