    Excellent food and good, attentive service. My only criticism is about the lighting level. We could not see the menu because the ambient lighting was set way too low!

    Absolutely amazing, right up until the girl who had been serving us either finished her shift or was on a break. Nobody assumed responsibility for our table,, dessert was cleared but not asked if we wanted anything else, sat for 30 minutes trying to attract attention of staff to pay bill, eventually got the bill then had to get someone to acknowledge us so we could pay, sadly very disappointing at the end. A lot of staff, management and upper management visiting on the day but very little attention to customers

    Decided to treat myself and what a treat it was. Service Exemplary. They even boxed up the delicious Sourdough for me. Only slight thing would change would be the duck Curry , which I had. Was delicately spiced and was lovely apart from really fatty duck, so a bit unappealing. Would change it to seafood. Say Cod, Salmon or Prawns. They were kind enough to take off the bill also. Thanks guys.

    Tables are rammed in, not luxurious at all being bashed about every time someone walked past. (Mentioned on booking we needed space) They didn’t bring our drinks, server didn’t seem to give 2 hoots. Fish and chips were good but sandwiches on afternoon tea were dry, table too small for 2 stands and no thought to help out! All a very stressful time

    Sat 27.11.2021 - 1.30pm Customer Greeting pathetic. Travelled a fair distance to the venue. Phoned 1.5 hours prior whilst on route to ask if there was an earlier sitting- although there was no earlier sitting as the restaurant fully booked, we were advised we could take a drink in the bar. This we didn't mind. We arrived 30 mins early, Party of 3 with one party member being elderly. Greeted by a pompous, obnoxious man who highlighted we were early (we knew that) and when we asked if we could take a drink in the bar he immediately replied to say it was full and was prepared to turn us away out into the freezing weather conditions, until we mentioned having had an earlier telephone conversation - this he didn't believe and as such we had to evidence this by showing him the call time on our mobile phone. He then made a point of jotting down the time of the call and tutting, reluctantly he then summoned a young lady and requested she allocate 3 seats at the bar. When we arrived at the bar there were at least 8 stools vacant, and remained vacant throughout our time there. This guy could have ruined what was a special occasion. It is to the credit and professionalism of the other greeting staff, and table service staff, and the enjoyment of the cuisine which made up for the horrid experience that we were greeted with.

    Came for a pre Christmas get together. Service was excellent however all of the food delivered to our table was cold. We did not complain as we did not want to wait for replacements but felt very let down and will not return. We were then told they needed the table back just after we ordered a drink after desserts and 10mins before they expected us to leave? Not a great experience

    They reserved me a table in the garden which I was aware of when I booked however I didn’t think I would be sat I. The garden in the rain. The cover was basically a canopy which was blowing around letting all the wind and rain in - we was moved to a different table still within the garden area but again this was the same so we asked to be moved inside which they refused due to capacity so we left before eating anything - disappointed was an understatement statement.

    Abi and Madi were absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious. Only criticism was that espresso martinis changed throughout the night! Started off the best ever and ended up mot so good as they had run out of the original ingredients. We really enjoyed our evening! Thank you Ivy Harrogate xx

    We booked the Ivy as we came in July for a celebration and from start to finish the whole experience was exemplary. We recommended it to friends and said what an amazing meal and experience we had. We then booked for a friends birthday and our wedding anniversary as a joint celebration.So when we came yesterday we expected the same level of service. Walking in everything was good taken to our table and all staff seem really friendly and happy to help. We even asked to move tables as ours felt pretty low and a member of staff was more than happy to help and assist. All seemed well up to this point. We then got moved to an area where the young waiter just really didn’t seem like he wanted to be there, no conversation very flat and almost felt like anything we asked was a burden. His face and attitude seemed like he wasn’t happy to be working. As you can imagine in comparison to last time this was a disappointment and we felt like we had to tell our friends we were sorry that they weren’t having the same experience and they commented that it wasn’t what they expected. Our friends meal was in-corrected and although this was swiftly sorted when eating it was very bland (chicken Milanese ) we all tried a small piece and there was very little flavour. She ended up leaving it but didn’t want to make a fuss. We greatly appreciated the celebration treats but these were pretty much just chucked down on the table from said waiter and not made to feel special at all. The food the rest of the party had was amazing and couldn’t fault that. We just left feeling disappointed as the whole experience last time from start to finish was amazing and this time not so much.Our friends said it won’t be somewhere they will return which is disappointing as we had said how lovely it was.
