It was nice to finally dine at an Ivy restaurant and overall it was a good experience. However it is not fine dining which is reflected in the modest prices for the food. The drinks are very expensive which I guess is how they make most of their money but they do overcharge. The service was very good but we did have to request a different table as we were very close to a table behind and on the walkway for the serving staff. We were moved with no fuss. Overall enjoyed it but do not expect great food just a good experience
excellent restaurant, lovely food, lush cocktails, superb service
Service very good , excellent location .However the food was not good . Squid was tasteless, cod was a horrible taste and under cooked . The sauce just didn’t go with the cod. Prawns under cooked . Duck curry was an acquired taste and edible, the other dishes weren’t.
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.
Absolutely amazing! Couldn't of asked for a better night. The service, food, atmosphere was exceptional, will definitely be going again soon.
Lovely waiter, great food
The Ivy Cheltenham is beautiful venue. The Staff are kind, attentive, efficient and helpful. Service is excellent as is the food.
Our Guest, who is Coeliac and lactose intolerant was given special attention and excellent advice and help.
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.
Food was very good. Good service and a relaxed atmosphere. When it got full up the noise level was very high.
Gorgeous surroundings, very inexpensive. Service and food certainly at the top tier for this price catagory!
I regret to say it was not the best experience. We had to remind them we were there. One guest could not have his first choice for mains another could not have his first choice for desert. We were waiting ages for our food. The place seemed overbooked and it was not a relaxing enjoyable experience as there seemed to be people rushing about all the time
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.
Atmosphere was wonderful and the staff were really attentive. The food was very good, looking forward to going back soon.
Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Food top notch and the cocktails are amazing. Highly recommend.
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!
We felt like our table was added last minute we were quite squashed we asked to be moved but this was not possible we also had to wait a while for our first drinks
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.
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.
Great venue to celebrate any occasion, very nice server.
Family birthday. Always a good bet to come to an Ivy. This one doesn’t disappoint. Been a few times, delicious. Great service. Recommended.
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!
Second visit to The Ivy in Cheltenham and not disappointed.
Not happy to be informed that you didn't do breakfast,poor website.
Food was brilliant and the staff were very helpful and attentive.
The main rotunda is a great space to eat in - food was good as always and the cocktails were good too. Always worth a visit
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!
Always a delight to eat at The Ivy and such a fabulous place for a special occasion. Eating in the dome is beautiful and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you
Very tasty well made starters and mains, the puddings were just too sweet
Excellent service. The food is good and is similar to the rest of the chain. The venue provides its own theatre and has an interesting history.
Great atmosphere, lively and interesting place. Bit of a wait for main course but the restaurant was v busy and luckily not in a rush. Would certainly go again.
Like travelling back in time eating under the dome with fantastic English food, not forgetting an amazing wine list. All the staff were courteous and friendly,
Beautiful room and service excellent. Food okay but some main dishes quite small in size particularly the Sheperds Pie.
I had the scallops - quite superb! Duck curry was so flavourful and delicious. Apple tart totally scrumptious!
lovely atmosphere and good food. Great bar area. Would highly recommend
The staff were really polite, friendly and accommodating. Food was outstanding quality and the restaurant is beautiful. Made my birthday really special.
Had a nice meal, 3 courses. Crispy duck starter was very good, and both desserts were excellent: calvados-flambéd apple tart and fig and pistachio feuillette
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.
