    Lovely food, great atmosphere and staff very attentive. Music and chatter was a little overwhelming ( had to shout a bit to speak) but overall an enjoyable date night evening with my wife.

    A nice restaurant, but don’t expect anything similar to The Ivy London or Manchester, as this is a very informal Ivy.

    Really nice food, but menu does not include basic items like chips, vegetables etc that have to be ordered at a supplement. Beware of service charge on bill

    Really not impressed with the fact that we were served frozen chips. If we wanted to eat in an establishment that served chips like this we’d of gone to Wetherspoons. Also, £6 for a glass full of crushed ice with a very small amount of lemonade in , is a bit cheeky.
