We had a really gorgeous meal. Staff were great and the food was exceptional. I'm so pleased for everyone that restaurants like the Ivy are busy again. Lucky us!
First time going to the Ivy, very beautiful venue and lovely food! Toilets smelt amazing!
Evening went extremely smoothly we all enjoyed our meals with excellent service
Beautiful restaurant with delicious food and fab service
Great food and a great atmosphere- very good place to go for a night out
The Ivy in Winchester is always a great experience. It is well managed with very able and capable staff who go out of their way to ensure that you have a good time while you are there. The ratio of staff to customers is very high and it shows in the experience they deliver.
Oh, and the food's not bad either!!!
Restaurant lighting makes it very difficult to read the menu unless you have perfect eye sight. We had to ask for a light to read the menu. The service and food was excellent.
We only got three small sandwiches and never offered if we wanted more. We had two scones each but jam and cream came out in tiny pots only enough for one scone we had to ask for more. We were asked would we like water for the table so we said yes but then realised it was bottled water we had to pay for. The IVY is lovely but could’ve been a slightly better afternoon tea in some aspects otherwise it was nice 😀
Lively restaurant definitely need to book it was very busy at 15.30. We were given an afternoon tea voucher it was very nice. The waiters were very attentive we thoroughly e enjoyed the experience and will go back for lunch
Not cheap but good atmosphere. Food was delicious and there’s a good wine list
Excellent service and the salmon & apple tart were delicious.
Lovely environment, excellent food and very responsive service
Birthday celebration for a 60th and a 16 we were greeted with a happy birthday shown to our table and from then on we were treated excellent food was very tasty and served up lovely we ordered a birthday cake which was lovely 5* all the way
I don’t normally leave reviews but I had to for this place. The Ivy Winchester was incredible, we went for our anniversary dinner and both our waiter and waitress were impeccable. They made us feel welcome, they were always attentive and they made our anniversary so special. We will definitely be returning. Not to mention the food, 11/10. Amazing evening.
Excellent unable to fault anything, service was friendly, professional and helpful. Food outstanding.
All very good but ……… the portion size of the Shepherd’s Pie is ridiculously small! I’ve had the traditional one which was small but as I love Shepherd’s Pie thought I’d try the special Osso Bucco version. My husband’s Fish and Chips turned up, a very healthy portion and I got excited about mine - until it arrived. Better as a starter than a main and at just short of £20 not value for money. Taste wise ok but needed the additional Lea and Perrin’s. Very disappointing. Would not recommend it.
I love the decor here and ambience here. Tables are well spaced and staff attentive and friendly. The food was all excellent. Recommended!
A wonderful evening with the best food and great service. How fine dining should be.
My sister and I had a cream tea and it was delicious. The service was impeccable and I would certainly recommend a visit to this superb restaurant.
Had a wonderful evening and capped a lovely stay in Winchester
The Ivy is a lovely place to eat. It’s beautiful decorated and has a warm atmosphere. The food and wine were excellent as was the service. We would definitely go back.
Enjoyed a very good meal, the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend and look forward to going again in the near future
Always a joy to eat out at The Ivy. Consistently good food and service.
Best meal I’ve ever eaten! Ivy Shepards pie is out of this world, partner had the crème brûlée pudding and was completely blown away
Excellent venue, good service and the
Food outstanding. A birthday surprise at the end of the meal.All the staff are polite , helpful and a service with a smile. Highly recommended
Good location, good food and good service. A bit pricey with wine in particular being expensive.
Would go again.
Once again, very enjoyable dinner with excellent service
All staff made my husbands birthday very special. The food is always amazing and the restaurant is beautiful. Can’t wait to come back again
Thank you to all staff
The most we have ever paid for a meal. Nice food but nothing over and above what we expected. Sorry, I feel we paid top money for the decor, the cocktail making show, the staff way of dressing….. all very nice but it did feel like pass the parcel, a lot of excitement ending it a nice enough surprise but far from being extraordinary. Not worth the money. A good experience but won’t be back.
Very good food. Never disappointed
Fabulous lunchtime treat, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Good food friendly staff. Lots of crying babies and coffee I. My saucer otherwise very good.
A great buzz (despite being a Monday evening), excellent food and service.
The best in fine dining experience
The food the ambience the service and the staff were excellent
Will visit again
Amazing service all afternoon. Thank you!
Wonderful restaurant and the food was excellent. However on this occasion the service was poor I am afraid. Many staff on duty but very slow service times and confusion with orders - not the best. That being said the individual staff were very charming. It would however have been nice if one of three standing at the door had said goodbye when we left.
Good food and service
Very pleasant way to celebrate friends birthday 🎂
Wonderful buzzy atmosphere. Restaurant is very attractively decorated and the ladies was amazing decor!
The food was delicious and we had a wonderful birthday celebration.
Will come again!
Great atmosphere and buzzing with activity and fun on a Monday lunchtime. Lots of nice guests; excellent friendly and competent staff. Fast and professional service mixed with warmth. Nice menu and well cooked and presented food. A really nice place!
Sophisticated night out with lovely food and service from Fraser.
