Service was very variable in quality, main course arrived before we finished the starter but kept waiting a long time for drinks order.

We had afternoon tea. Beautifully presented by helpful friendly staff.
Odd filling of courgette and cucumber in 1 sandwich. The scones were on the small size and the macaroons were too sweet. However we still enjoyed the occasion

Food and service were outstanding, waiter very friendly and efficient. Only complaint is the music was too loud and we couldn't talk properly. Music was good but could have been on a lower volume.

Everything was perfect, however we felt the music was too loud but I do realise this is down to personnal taste. Nice to have background music but it was a bit of a struggle to hear anyone speak.

We had a lovely evening at the Ivy celebrating our wedding anniversary. The service was friendly and personal, the ambience was excellent with some good tunes being played by the DJ and the food was lovely. The only negative was that the men's toilets were closed.

Book ahead to save disappointment. Choose the chocolate bomb as it was delicious and spectacular! Decorations are lovely. Ladies toilets, so nice to have basin in with them, individual.
