Fabulous, faultless service. Extremely friendly careful and professional team. The food gorgeously presented and great to taste. Vegan menu caters for me and the Keralan curry has been consistent across several different Ivy locations from St Albans to Bath. The rotunda building in Cheltenham is by far the most stunning location I have visited yet and very atmospheric for an evening meal, the lighting, foliage and the circle bar in the centre just perfect. Thank you for making our celebration perfect.

Would be nice to have at least one cake with afternoon tea, chocolate pot and trifle were not able to take home and to much to eat whist there. Sandwiches bread just a touch dry which was a shame as the fillings we’re excellent. Would revisit. Could there be a more savoury option?
Best Wishes Fred

We had a special occasion dinner with some American friends who had come over to visit us. The food was excellent and we were accommodated in the rotunda seating area which was great.

The service was slow. The time between starter and main was too long and our coffees were brought out before our desserts. Additionally we were sat beside the side entrance, where there was a constant flow of waiters and diners opening and not closing the outer door, with the inside door fully open. This resulted in a constant draught which became really annoying. These issues did spoil the occasion and was disappointing given how much we had said how wonderful The Ivy was to our guests.

An unusually disappointing visit on a quiet Monday evening, with very inattentive service and a particularly overcooked and dry roast chicken. Not their usual standard1 The lobster risotto starter was fabulous.

Only negative I have to make is that we were put on a small table and couldn't fit everything on the table but that being said always nice to be on a round table

Saturday night the food was delicious, I had the onion soup to start followed by the Lobster linguine it was stunning. Our friends did try and order three different fish starters which were all sold out which was a shame but does show how busy they were. The service was great, wine was fabulous.
a great night out in a stunning restaurant and we thought was great value for money will return again for sure.

Ordered one main course, took 50 minutes. No apology even though they deducted the service charge (without explaining why!).

This is a very special restaurant. The ambiance in the rotunda is wonderful, as is the quality of the food and standard of service. A real fine dining experience. You do need to budget on at least £50 per head, and that is not with extravagant choices, but it is worth it. The nature of the building means it can be quite noisy and the tables are fractionally too close together, but they have made the best use of the space available. If you book for more than four people you might have to be in the side room, which is not nearly so special. I haven't eaten in that room but I'm sure it's very comfortable.

Some of the food was disappointing. Surely it is not hard to do an egg on toast - I received an egg on a side plate and toast. No butter ready or offered. We waited at least half an hour for the egg not on toast and another portion of toast! The gluten free bread was bog standard supermarket bread and the granola just mass produced-type poor disappointing as well. I don't mind paying for good food - The Ivy was disappointing.

We enjoyed our first visit to The Ivy. The choice of food was wide and the quality was good but it was not 'haute cuisine'. The service was good. The drinks were expensive however and we found it rather noisy.

Our waiter really made our day special for my partner’s birthday, his service was excellent and attentive. Without him, the breakfast would have still been good, but nowhere near the lovely event it was.

A lovely setting, the food portions are generous, and our waiter was absolutely exceptional - he loved his job and actually said so when we remarked on his attention to detail.
