    Absolutely beautiful setting and a lovely place to visit. Been to a few Ivy’s now but have to say the only down side was the breakfast we had was very nice but quite cold. Ordered sour dough toast and literally had two small cold pieces and some butter and no extras like jam etc .. quite poor for £4.95.

    The service was very slow. The drinks order had one drink missing, service table was very poor. Water was wasted by the waitress when pouring the water and it wasn’t even noticed. The main course quality was very disappointing. Accompaniments were not suggested by the waitress, although the steak served on its own really needed them. The surroundings were as lovely as ever, unfortunately we were very let down by poor service and poor quality food.

    I have to say the main meals were not hot, I think because plates were cold. It was both mine and husbands meals. We had time restraints otherwise I would have complained on the day but couldn't wait for more meals to be served. Also it seemed that the staff were rushed. The guy in suit took away our plates but didn't give us desert menus, as he had with our neighbouring guests. So we sat waiting for our desert menu for quite some time. We have visited you on several occasions and not had theses issues.

    We had a lovely birthday breakfast for my partner, food was delicious as were the drinks. The staff were lovely and attentive without being over bearing and even brought out a little birthday treat at the end.

    Treat for my husbands special birthday. Welcome at door was good shown to our table. Female waiter assigned to us was not welcoming. Curt, abrubt with a real attitude. Not the level of service that we were expecting. We removed the discretionary tip to be removed. Starters were both lovely( not much quantity of the squid). Shepherds pie was lovely but the lobster linguine very poor lobster was over cooked and the whole dish had no flavour. We bought it to the attention of duty manager who dealt with it well offering a replacement which we declined as I had nearly finished mine. Linguine taken off the bill. This spoilt the whole special treat for my husban. My husband also noticed black mould above the urinals and water dripping down onto the urinals. This experience has put us off The Ivy as we always think of going here as a special treat. Overall very disappointed.
