    Exceptional service and the food was divine. Dined entirely from the vegetarian menu and it was fantastic. The only thing that wasn’t delicious was the chips surprisingly! But it didn’t detract from the amazing complex flavours of all the other dishes we ordered! Will definitely go again.

    Good, friendly service. Beautiful surroundings and ambience. Food was good but not spectacular and additional sides which were required for some of our mains brought the price up. Absolutely worth a visit though for a special occasion.

    Really lovely brunch, I had eggs royale. The cocktails were lovely too. Great overall, although including a service charge of 12.5% (albeit discretionary) for a table of 3 people at brunch felt unnecessary.

    Didn’t realise there was a time limit 1.45 too short when paying so much money…. Food was tasty … staff were lovely but no movement for the kids menu… have pasta on but won’t give a small side of pasta instead of chips … makes no sense…

    Had The Shepard’s Pie and was disappointed with it. Meat was very chewy. Usually love The Ivy. Seemed to me that the pie had been heated up in the microwave & wasn’t fresh. Food came almost too quickly. I noticed food came out quickly for everyone. Rose was lovely & cocktail. Got a side of peas which were lovely. Service was outstanding.

    I arrived for breakfast midweek so not to busy I ordered the vegetarian option and a pot of coffee. The meal was well presented the staff efficient and friendly. I really don’t understand the need for loud music especially early in the morning the patrons beside me were shouting to hear each other over the din. I was surprised to see a service charge on the bill I prefer to leave a tip for staff.
