Once again we had a lovely time for a special occasion at the Ivy. It was a shame it was spoiled by the table next to us being occupied by a very loud group of 4 people. They drowned out any chance we had of a normal conversation. We were very pleased that the staff were able to relocate us to enable us to finish our meal in peace.

The best experience in Cheltenham! So Jasmine looked after us from arrival throughout. She was professional and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Claude explained how Jasmine was in training - clearly The Ivy training model is excellent. Claude also made us hugely welcome - a fantastic 5* experience. The best Experience in Cheltenham. Thank you.

Having visited number of times, the service was poor. This was due to lack of training the staff to maintain standards.

We visited you yesterday evening at 8pm and our waitress was fantastic. Very attentive, professional with good knowledge of the menu and drinks menu. The ambience was lovely and the restaurant beautiful! The only criticism was that the chips were a little over cooked. Overall an excellent evening dining at the Ivy.

We were originally seated outside of the Rotunda but on seeing my disappointment the hostess was able to move us there. The food was delicious and the place was buzzing even at 6pm. Loved it. A great birthday treat!

Ordered a cream tea and was made to feel a little worthless upon doing so - tea was brought much later than the scones (and had been forgotten about), side plates were missed out completely, water was forgotten, tea was very stewed when it arrived (with tea bag still in), no one checked that everything was okay, and the waitress who took the bill did not say anything to us. This was very different to the experience of those dining around us (who received an apology for late food and received table checks)

The Ivy is a very beautifully designed restaurant & bar. Loved the decor and ambience of the place. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
We ordered the ‘Wonderland’ afternoon tea, which I wouldn’t really describe as Alice in Wonderland themed at all, which was a bit disappointing. However the food was lovely and would definitely recommend & return.

Not clear about voucher, bill came without voucher (afternoon tea for 2) taken off, even though at time of online booking I entered the voucher code.
Quite poor.
Overall food and service was good though.
Shame voucher thing wasn't sorted, I even had to email the voucher, while paying, what is the point entering the voucher code when booking if nothing is done.
Might as tell us the booking is just reserving the table at that time/place.

The service was spot on. It was my step daughter’s 21st birthday and every member of staff made a fuss of her….. the choux pastry with the candle in was a lovely touch!

Eating here under the dome is a great experience. The food is delicious and the staff very friendly but professional. Our anniversary bonus dessert was a lovely suprise!

Booked a few days before. Efficient and polite welcome. Waiter very attentive, but not in your face which is great when having a quiet afternoon tea for wedding anniversary. Lovely extra touch for our anniversary definitely meant we needed the goody box to take away "spare" cakes.

We had the Afternoon Tea for Two. The table was quite small, too small for all the various plates and drinks. The freshly made sandwiches and scones were good, but the small cakes bought in were disappointing.

Was my first visit with my Daughter for her 21st. Absolutely beautiful place, decor was stunning. The food was so good, and our waiter was informative on our food choices. Also very observant when more drinks were needed!
Will definitely be returning.
