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 😀

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.

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.

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.

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.
