Ideally located between the stunning Sussex Coastline and the beautiful South Downs, the Ivy Chichester Brasserie is the perfect spot for anyone taking a break between shopping on the city's bustling high street, or the visitors who flock to see its famous cathedral and art gallery.

The ground floor includes a round bar area while the restaurant's stained-glass windows take their design cues from the history that surrounds this beautiful cathedral city. Lavish furnishings and other eclectic design touches will appeal to theatre-goers here for the acclaimed Chichester Festival. The brasserie's outdoor terrace features comfortable seating, plants and lanterns, so when it's cold outside, you can still dine alfresco.

    If I was meeting a group of friends and wanted a lively environment then The Ivy would be fine. However, we were celebrating a wedding anniversary as a couple and it was a disappointing experience. The restaurant is very noisy and not at all intimate. The decor is quirky and unusual, and clearly attracts upmarket, well-dressed Goodwood types, but the food was surprisingly average and not as unique or delicious as the visual appearance might suggest. We went on a Friday night and, honestly, couldn't wait to get out and go home.

    The coffees were cold, the tea in the pot was so weak that we requested another teabag from a waiter who ignored our request. It was my mums 80th Birthday which I mentioned as I came in it made no difference at all. The young lady who served our table was very nice & pleasant but our overall experience was disappointing.

    We were unhappy using the website to book the experience. I found it difficult to know the times of afternoon tea therefore expected it to be around 2ish. The website did not explain the experiences or have a link to book in directly. I ended up just booking a table for a time which suited us. We got to the restaurant and then had to rebook for 3pm. This could have been difficult for us because we had our son age 12 with additional needs. We have all manner of difficulties to overcome when traveling and going out. Waiting for an hour, getting over hungry was not easy managing him in town.

    This is the fourth meal I’ve had at the Chichester Ivy. The three previous ones have been very enjoyable occasions in every respect. By contrast, our visit on Monday 15 July (at 1.30 pm) was disappointing for the following reasons: 1. We were running late and wanted to phone to say that we might be late. However, having tried and after hanging on the line for some time without a response, I gave up. Fortunately, we did, in the end, arrive on time. 2. The noise level was excessive and intrusive making it difficult to hear what my wife and the waitresses said. I’m pleased that The Ivy is so popular but something needs to be done to moderate sound levels. 3. Our table was placed by a stanchion which made it impossible for me to push my chair back. I found this very uncomfortable. In turn it made it difficult for my wife to stretch out her legs under the table. 4. The occasion was a double birthday celebration for the two of us - we both have birthdays in July. In the past, for example when we have dined to celebrate our anniversary, we have received a small cake at the end of the meal, which I’ve always considered to be a very nice touch. However, although our final bill indicated that we had received a celebratory gift, this was not actually the case. So, all-in-all, what should have been a happy occasion left us very disappointed.

    Lovely setting, food was good and so was the service. They did add on extra by mistake as the bill was extremely expensive but we managed to rectify that 😊
