The food was good as always. Dining with a disabled guest wasn’t as good as usual. The choice of table wasn’t ideal and the disabled toilet is used my staff and other customers and as such wasn’t as clean as it had been previously. The lighting was poor in the toilet especially challenging when disabled. The staff were as always friendly and good at their job.

Lovely staff, food and ambiance. I do think the wine is very overpriced though.

A lovely meal and excellent service but slightly spoilt by the table of people next to us being very loud, swearing occasionally and complaining about their meal. The restaurant actually turned up the in house music to try and drown the noise level they were making.
That said, I will definitely eat there again.

Recommended lunch for my birthday. The waiters were miserable. Food was good but not great. My husband rang ahead and told them it was my birthday so at the end of our meal, the waiter came, put the profiterole with candle on the table and walked off. Staff weren’t wearing masks.

Everything was just about perfect.
We were offered the choice of sitting upstairs or down. We chose up but either would have been fine.
Service was timely, neither too fast nor too slow. Our waiter was charming and attentive.
We'll definitely be revisiting in the near future.

Went for a birthday meal. Was quite loud when we arrived and the tables just seem to be crammed together and seated too close to one another. Other than that the food was nice and service was good.

Overpriced high-tea , paid £97 almost £100 for a mediocre couple of sandwiches with hardly any filling inside and a crumble over heated scones which broke in half as you spread them. We had hot drinks assuming they are included in the package/they should be/ only to find that they are extra, and they were not even worth it. The English tea was very weak ...
Very very disappointed.

Hi
We came to eat on Sunday the 23rd of January. Lovely table on the ground floor.
Just a few things that we think need to change;
Music too loud
Menus need changing more often
Draughty door to the outside Shen ever it’s used
Need more toilets on ground floor.
It’s a pain having to go up the stairs and past everybody!
Lovely atmosphere though

Amazing time, would have been 5 stars but the space was cool when doors opened and you got a draft. Minor issue but otherwise a really nice meal.

Excellent food and service. Wine a little overpriced and definitely need to change those wine glasses to something more normal. Overall a very good dining experience.

Efficient, friendly service and lovely food. The restaurant is a great environment. The only downside was the music. It did not seem to fit the environment somehow but it was a small thing and did not spoil our evening. We were a party of six and we all enjoyed the Ivy.

Where do we start, booked a table at 4, when we arrived plonked at bar, then given a table in middle of downstairs area with waiters passing and brushing past us all meal, as well as being very noisy.

Starters were ok, but the main courses were poor. Two ordered Steak, one Sirloin and one Rib-Eye, being £25.95 and £32.95 respectively. Both were very tough with a lot of gristle in both, when I told the waiter when asked if everything was alright, just walked away, didn't even try to find out our thoughts, just the same when I brought it up again on paying the bill.

When were asked if we wanted a dessert, the minute we declined any got told by the staff, the table was rebooked in 5 minutes could we make our way out. Not offered an digestif, which was extremely poor from what proports to be a top end restaurant, felt we would have got better options and certainly nicer food at some of the cheap fast food restaurants in town.
The bill for 4 was almost £300, so its not the cheapest restaurant for a two course meal, and the way we were asked to leave just had no class about it.

The Ivy had been recommended to us by some friends, but on the experience we had I doubt if we will be going back, overall it felt like a poor quality fast food (you are allowed a set time at the table) joint.
