    My wife had the fishcakes which were very nice. I had the burger. I paid extra for the bacon and cheese and they were very sparing with the cheese, hence only four star for the food. I asked for a glass of red wine with my main and had to remind the waitress to bring it

    I booked The Ivy Clifton to celebrate our son’s graduation never having been to this particular Ivy before. What a delightful venue. The staff couldn’t have made us feel more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and we did not feel rushed at any point. Very often there is a time restraint but lunch was a very relaxed affair despite the restaurant being full. They were even able to accommodate 2 extra guests with very short notice. The setting is fantastic and they have avoided squeezing in extra tables as can happen so often in popular restaurants. The food was up to the usual standard with all tastes being well catered to. I would definitely recommend a return visit.

    Our daughter had her graduation ceremony at Bristol uni so we chose the Ivy as it is very good and so reliable and stil has the lunch menu at 3pm. The service we got was outstanding. So personal as well as slick. The drinks do take some time but we did have cocktails. Overall a great place to celebrate with our loved ones ❤️

    We had a fabulous afternoon celebrating my husband's birthday. One small criticism: the crepe in his crepe suzette was stone cold. Whilst we appreciate pancakes go cold quickly, surely a hot, lidded dish and the ice cream served in a separate ramekin would provide a better experience.

    1917 menu is not available weekend despite saying mon-sun on app. Didn't fancy anything much off a la carte but had Mexican chicken. Basically chicken with bit of sauce on. Asked waiter for glass of shiraz and he got the most expensive one off menu. Toilets were sticky, dirty, locks broken....just shabby and overpriced, ruining the reputation of the Ivy
