Just a lovely experience. The serving staff were excellent and the food high quality. The one downside was that although the specials venison burger tasted great, the presentation was uninspiring compared to the other dishes.

This is my third visit to The Ivy Clifton, each for a different occasion, catch up with an old friend, a treat for my daughter home from Uni and a family birthday celebration. All were equally successful and enjoyable.

The decor is so beautiful, and gives a vintage feel. The staff are lovely and make you feel welcomed and looked after. The menu has a lot of choice. Perfect for a special occasion or even afternoon tea with a few friends. Will be coming back again! :)

I lunched with a friend, we got an extraordinarily warm welcome, the service was exceptional.
The food was lovely, although the menu looked pretty much the same as when I was there about 4 weeks ago. I would have liked to see something different on offer. I wonder how often the menu gets changed.
Quite good value, and I will certainly be going again

Took my friend here for dinner for her 50th birthday treat. Service was exceptional from start to finish. The food was fantastic with a really good choice on the menu, without breaking the bank.

I have already recommended this restaurant to several friends and will continue to do so. The food, and ambience made for a great evening. Thank you.

From the door being opened to welcome us, to leaving after a sumptuous tea, this was an occasion that will be talked about for months to come. The staff were faultless, the decor delightful and the Tower of Indulgence a real treat - both visually and on the palate. I defy you to be disappointed. Barbara Bush from Bristol

My husband and I were given a gift voucher as a present and this was the first opportunity we had to use it. We decided on the afternoon/evening set menu, and it was well worth the price.
The pumpkin soup was amazing, and everything else we chose was really tasty. The staff were
Very friendly and courteous. We would not hesitate to have a return visit, and would recommend to anyone for a casual meal or a celebratory outing.

The staff were very polite and friendly. We had a lovely lunch. The rib eye steak was perfectly grilled and not tough. The Tuna was perfectly seared and the wasabi and greens with it very tasty. Starters were great as well. Keep up the good work!

Fabulous service, most of the food was delicious, the tomato sauce on my husbands sea trout was a little bland and the crunchy topping on the creme brûlée was very thin, but that is being very picky. The Lady Lavender cocktail was delightful, both starters were excellent (duck liver parfait and scallops), the fillet steak was cooked beautifully as were the chips to accompany it. The Lemon Meringue Alaska was to die for. A superb way to celebrate our anniversary, thank you.
