Contemporary British
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.

    Very pleasantly surprised by our first Ivy experience and it was! The decor is eclectic and vibrant, the service was professional but friendly, the portion sizes were just right and they even added an anniversary treat. Prices were lower than we would have expectated on the two course seasonal menu though the wine list was a bit overpriced. It was an enjoyable experience from beginning to end.

    I was disappointed with my main as the sea bass didn’t come with any shrimp like the menu stated. We also didn’t have someone come over and ask how the food was so I couldn’t tell them part of my main was missing. Mash was quite plain and the sauce was watery. Seabass was cooked perfectly and the chicken skewers starter was amazing.

    I felt compelled to review a review following a very disappointing experience at the Ivy Chichester. The food was ok but the service was abysmal. Our waiter was smiley and polite however we were made to feel so very rushed an obsession to clear plates from our table whilst still eating them. - I had to fight for the bread we ordered to be left on the table - I was made to justify why he couldn’t clear away the remaining 2 arancini balls in a bowl on our table (we just ordered a bunch of starters, no mains). - Later on the saucer was taken from my coffee, as it had been exposed with no cup on it for more 90 secs, as I raised it to my mouth - and finally, our ice bucket containing 1/3 of a bottle of white wine was whisked away when we weren’t looking, we were then told it was empty - which I know to be a lie because I was topping up our glasses myself, in the absence of the waiter doing it (presumably too busy pursuing more crockery he could return to the sanctuary of the kitchen as quickly as possible) On the rare occasion when things fall below expectation in a restaurant, I always feel it’s important to raise the issues there and then to allow the waiting team to resolve the situation and turn a poor experience around (rather than justing leaving a bad review afterwards), however when I raised my issues with the waiter made no real acknowledgement and simply printed the bill with the default £10 service charge still included. Brilliant…

    We had the afternoon tea. The food wasn’t as nice as we’ve had before. The value for money was poor. The waitress didn’t seem interested in us. The green juice was not very nice, would’ve preferred an option. Too much sweets and not enough savoury. Style over substance.

    We went o the Ivy to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It felt very special. The staff made a point of wishing us a happy anniversary and we got a little complementary anniversary dessert at the end. The service was brilliant. Understated and just right. food was perfect. WE had a great time and won't hesitate to go back.

    Wow! What an incredible place to eat, drink and be merry. The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding and the price was reasonable. My friend and I chose the 2 course menu for £19.70 we also had a cocktail each. My friend was then given a FREE desert as it was her birthday. We didn’t ask or request this it just happened. Thank you for a night to remember.
