Absolutely lovely evening! Right off the bat the staff are very attentive and friendly and make sure that they can help you in any way possible. Our drinks came very quickly and they didn’t make us wait too long to order food after that. The food itself was beautiful (some of the portions were a little big, eg. The duck liver parfait, but I don’t really see that as a problem!) and we didn’t really have to wait at all. Unfortunately towards the end a rather loud family came and sat near us but that’s not really the restaurants fault and it didn’t impact their service for us. Overall definitely worth visiting!

Beautiful place, tasteful and relaxing ambience, acoustics poor in the dome area, difficult to hear those at the table. Food was excellent and the service was excellent but also allowing time between courses so not invasive

It is an amazing building. The ivy is an unrivalled experience of service and quality and worth that extra bit, although the service charge should be a bit more transparent and perhaps a customer choice.

Lovely meal although disappointed the’50%’ off was a very limited menu.
Service was very good as always but concerned waiting staff were not wearing masks or face shields.
Not sure I am happy to visit again until waiting staff have their faces covered.
Such a shame, our first meal out since lockdown but didn’t feel entirely safe.
I’m surprised The Ivy!

It was our first visit to The Ivy, Cheltenham and we weren’t disappointed.
The service was excellent. As were the waiters and nothing was too much trouble for them.
There was much to choose from on the dinner menus and our meals were excellent.
We will definitely be back next time we are in Cheltenham.

Lovely evening apart from a young child continuously crying.
Maybe managers could speak to diners who have young children when they are continuously crying

It was lunch time and three of us had the best fish chips ever. Fourth diner was equally impressed with fish cake dish. Waiter was discreet, pleasant and helpful. Service was very quick and much appreciated. Very relaxed atmosphere, helped by tropical plants, paintings and circular bar with gleaming glass wear. Whole experience seamless.

Great to be back at The Cheltenham Ivy, we’ve missed it! Was encouraged to see great lengths they’ve gone to in order to be covid safe, temperature checks upon arrival, screens between each booth, constantly cleaning in ladies toilets around sinks etc after each use. Felt very safe and great buzzing atmosphere we will be back again!

The one disappointment was the Minute Steak which was tough and inedible. Everything else was outstanding and it was an excellent place in which to celebrate out Diamond Wedding Anniversary. The gifts of the Happy Anniversary items to have with our coffee were much appreciated.

We were very uncomfortable regarding the social distancing arrangements. Also the vegetables were very undercooked - the TENDER stem broccoli was anything but and the beans couldn't be cut with the knife provided. We mentioned this but were still charged.

Staff very friendly and attentive, our temperature was checked upon entry. Have implemented Covid procedures seamlessly. We ordered from the set menu well worth it, we dined in eat our to help out but wouldn’t mind paying the full price to have that menu again, delicious!!

Both ordered beef fillet for main which came with potato rosti according to menu. In explicably substituted with a portion of oven chips - a let down. That is the memory we took away and comment that we will relay to friends back in Suffolk when they ask for a critique on the meal.

Better than expected - highly recommended. Covid is being taken seriously which is reassuring but doesn’t negatively impact the experience. My partner is vegan and was impressed by the range of options and taste of the food.

Beautiful building and their Covid processes were good. Where we were sat was cold and some guests were having to wear their coats. Unfortunately the service wasn’t great. After the first course it was really slow - even 15 minutes just to pay. When we sat down we were given water without being asked and then charged £4 for the privilege.
The waitress was rude and didn’t seem bothered about the service she was providing.
The food and drink was brilliant though.

We were all extremely impressed by our first trip to The Ivy in Cheltenham. The service from everyone, especially our waiter, Adam, was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The building is stunning. The cocktails and food were simply divine. Having trained at Le Cordon Bleu as a chef, I have been rather spoilt with wonderful food and presentation and am rarely impressed - this certainly hit the spot in meeting expectations. Every single dish we ordered had a fantastic balance of flavours as well as presentation. Each course was truly delicious. We will absolutely be returning, The Ivy has become our new favourite restaurant all 4 of us decided. Expect to see us soon! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

THE IVY SEEMS TO BE TRYING HARD AND DOING A GOOD JOB OF IT IN TOUGH TIMES. WE STILL LOVE THE PLACE. WELL DONE. WE MUCH PREFER BEING IN THE MAIN ROOM THOUGH, RATHER THAN THE SMALL ROOM OFF THE ENTRANCE. MAYBE NEXT TIME (UNLESS THE MAIN ROOM IS NOW FOR LARGER PARTIES ONLY)? IT WAS A REALLY NICE EVENING OUT AND MUCH APPRECIATED. THANK YOU.

Unfortunately my sirloin steak had too much gristle. I’m sure they could have chosen a better quality cut. Otherwise my wife’s linguine with lobster was delicious. The crab apple salad was lovely and beautifully presented. The smoked salmon was delicious.
The IPA ale and the glass for it was far too cold causing a frothing reaction.
Service was excellent and attentive.
