    Convenient venue with large public car park nearby, super food and service but far too noisy. Had we been seated beyond the bar, nearer the conservatory, it would have been so much better.

    Negatives first! Please don’t charge me £5.95 for a small bottle of lager and deliver it at room temperature with a warm glass. I had to ask for ice, giving every opportunity to deal with the problem more professionally than delivering a glass of ice cubes. I then tasted my white white and had to ask for it to be put on ice as it was not chilled and I assure the reader I am not a Polar Bear. Positives! Pleasant surroundings and ambience, smart and attentive waiters and good quality food, nothing inspiring or particularly creative but dependable quality fare. Al in all, decent night out but better value elsewhere.

    Mostly it was a delightful experience. Clearly very busy and staff coped remarkably well but we’re always apologising for lack of plates etc. Scones were good but NOT warm. Not enough to stop me returning but not good enough for 5 stars

    Table wasn't ready for us. When we did eventually get a table it was close to a very cold doorway. We had ordered 3 drinks at the bar but only 2 made it to our table , when asked about it the missing drink arrived but it was not right. My prawn cocktail was very very cold and this affected the taste. My sisters side dish arrived after she had almost finished her shepherd's pie. The restaurant was exceptionally busy and the staff were apologetic. The mixologist ( little guy with glasses and a lovely smile ) was very good at his job. This was meant to be a special night for my sister's 50th , yes we got a rebate for our desserts but that did not make up for our disappointment. In short , could do better.

    Disgusting, been to many of the ivys - Manchester,Leeds,york and this was by FAR the worse, fryers using burnt oil / too hot led to burned batter on the fish which you could taste, being asked 21 questions on our marriage. Thought the location it is in it would be the best one, poor… wouldn’t go if it was free, sorry ivy but you have lost a regular customer.

    Everything was lovely apart from the loud music & you couldn’t even hear what track was playing! All people do when music is loud is shout above the music!! I asked for it to be turned down & it was slightly which was better. Thank you. It should be background noise not clubbing level! Everything else was perfect & fabulous smiling staff.

    Fab. Bit on the pricey side for 2 fish cakes but well worth it. Delicious. Thought the mini mince pies were too small until I started eating them with the cream. Absolutely gorgeous and a slight case of eyes being bigger than the belly! Loved it!

    Was treating friends for Christmas. As a result they did not tell me until later that the soup they had as starter arrived lukewarm. My duck salad was delicious. We all had fish and chips. Not good. The batter was crisp outside but stuck to the teeth on the inside. Fish inside was very disappointing. No flavour and watery. My guess it was frozen not fresh. It had strange smell. No idea what fish it was and not at all tasty. We all loved the mince pies which were apparently made to order. However the coffee we ordered at same time was delivered straightaway and by time mince pies served was too cool. Timing needs thought.

    The service in The Ivy was top notch and the decor and ambiance were good (although we felt the tables were far too close together in the current Covid climate). What let The Ivy down was the food, which was no more than average. If you’re going to charge high prices, you have to provide high quality meals.

    Enjoyed our visit to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary the starters were delicious but the main meals were both dissapointing!! The beef in my shepherd pie was tough and not eatable and for a shepherds pie was full of tomatoe?? My husbands goose shepherds pie was also spoilt by tomatoe!! We wouldn’t have chosen these meals if we had known about all the tomatoe which doesn’t agree with our stomachs and has affected us for the last two days!! The mince pies were very nice and the tiramisu! We were sat in the front window which was too close to a table of four who were very loud which spoilt our visit and made it difficult to talk to each other!! Will try visiting again but will be careful about choosing our meal and ask to be sat in the centre of restaurant for more space and to feel the atmosphere more!!

    Steak was poor. Manager agreed. Wine waiter filled glass with arm directly over my plate. When I enquired whether he had ever been told to poor around rather than across he replied with a smirk on his face - " I have now". The dining experience was poor. This establishment should not be allowed to trade under the Ivy. I have been to the original Ivy. This is no Ivy. Won't be back.
