    This was our 3rd visit to The Ivy. Not as good as the first. Menu has changed and is not as good now. The chef forgot to cook one of the meals for our table causing a significant delay but the restaurant kindly removed the charge for this and provided complimentary coffees. The staff were extremely apologetic. Sirloin steak was overcooked but because of the delay I did not complain. Cocktails were excellent.

    Service and ambience excellent as always but the food is now just another Brake Bros delivery - really disappointing. You can get the same food in your local, it’s only the surroundings and service that are different..

    At arrival we were seated and offered water, all was well. Waiting 20 minutes then had to chase a waiter to receive our drinks order, used this opportunity to order food. Waited a further 20 minutes before having to chase our drinks order, waiter seems confused and no apology given. Upon receipt of drinks being put on the table our food arrived. When mentioned that we had just received our drinks, no comment was given by either waiters as to the delay of an apology. Two orders of fish and chips were quite variable, one was well received l, the other had chips rock hard. Being this was a birthday celebration it was a disappointing experience. We could not justify amount of customers being a pressure as there was ample staff to cover the numbers.

    Our waiter was very attentive, but a few other members of staff seemed confused. Arriving we were encouraged to walk straight in rather than check-in, and then when dishes arrived they were mixed up, and we had to request the chips that we mssing, which were then mistaking my added to the bill - so a bit of faff! Food good, but you pay the price for it so to be expected.

    Very enjoyable lunch - food delicious, service excellent, good atmosphere, ladies loo beautiful!!. Only comments I would add is that the main meal (shepherds pie) needed sides i.e. peas & delicious parmesan chips are a must, so adds to the total of your meal. Waiter offers water so brings a bottle that you pay for so mention tap water to get it free.

    We went for afternoon tea. Delicious sandwiches and scones, not so keen on the sweet selection though. The service was excellent from our welcome through to the bill. A lovely lively atmosphere but unfortunately I found it hard to hear.

    Lovely food, excellent service, nice decor, dress code was smart casual although some diners came very casual and not smart. Perhaps this was overlooked because of the hot weather. Highly recommend this venue.

    We've enjoyed many meals at the Ivy. Last night the food wasn't consistent and at its usual high standards. The salt and pepper squid was tough as was the monkfish in the curry. Other items were very good. The service and setting however was at its usual high standards and it will not put us off visiting again soon.

    Amazing atmosphere! We went there to celebrate my eldest son’s birthday and we were treated like kings! He received a birthday pudding on the house which was a pleasant surprise to all of us! We sat at the front of the restaurant, by the bar which felt very special and intimate. Definitely a ‘special treat’ restaurant as it is pricey but well worth it. Highly recommended. Great service.

    We always visit when on holidays from Oz, bring friends and can’t usually deviate from our favourites like the shepherds pie, fish and chips, parfait, choc bombe etc. The ambience and service is always great, the dress code seemed a little more lax than seen in the past and find the food good value and typically it’s the wine that is on the exe side but overall it’s a must and highly recommend. A trip to the stylish toilets is a must :)..

    A wonderful evening, my fish cake was tasty, it could have been served with a few chips. My partners cheese burger looked good but sadly had very little cheese & the burger bun was way too hard. Maybe restuarant should consider changing the bun. For desert we had the pannecotta- which was tasty. We had a lovely waitress, friendly & coutius. A very nice bottle of rose` wine. Our table was outside as we requested, which was lovely. We would go back and try a few more dishes.

    My daughter and I opted to sit in the outdoor space and enjoyed a drink at the bar whilst we waited no longer than 5 minutes for a table. The staff were most accommodating and friendly and we felt relaxed and welcome at all times. The menu choice was excellent and the food very tasty. A nice experience!

    Food was standard at best burger bun was burnt, burger was dry. Part of our order didn't arrive so we had to remind waitress. Had a cocktail that arrived in a glass that looked as if it had come out of a dolls House and cost £6.50. Waitress service was very good, food was about as good as you would get at a fast food restaurant such as MacDonald. All in all don't bother
