Food and atmosphere as expected, but we both resent being billed for the service at 12.5% for a table of two when the table service was indifferent and relatively slow. It seems churlish and mean spirited not to pay the service charge, so we did, but we would prefer it to be left to our discretion.

Fabulous food for our birthday lunch. It is expensive BUT you know that before you go so be prepared to pay! But it was totally worth it because the food is exquisite, and perfectly presented.
The staff were professional, helpful and cheerful which added to the experience. We would definitely go again but it would be for a special occasion as we couldn’t afford the prices on a regular basis, and we both work!! Please bring The Ivy to Bournemouth 🙏🏻 But maybe not as I’ll end up in debt 😂

My younger brother was on a visit from South Africa, where there are many fine restaurants, especially in the Cape Region.
He is also an authority on South African wine, and has contributed numerous
articles to magazines and hospitality publications.

We both were most impressed with our meal and service, not to mention the
spotless and beautiful gents toilet with its seductive lighting and atmosphere -
maybe a table for 2 could be added?

Thank you, Barry Sampson

Service was quite slow at times but staff very professional and friendly. Chips with steak were really dry and tasted like oven chips, rest of the food was great.

I’m so glad you sent this. Our experience was incredibly poor and disappointing. The restaurant was busy so I didn’t make a fuss. I planned to email you but this came first. Food was incorrect. Then cold. The broccoli was hard. The burger was no better than an average pub meal. I was so disappointed as it was a treat for my daughter to celebrate completing a professional ballet qualification. Based on yesterday. I would not go back.

On booking had said it was a special birthday but no one mentioned or came along and did anything a little extra !
The service was slow as we kept asking for drinks.
The food was nice overall

Everything was excellent - service, food and staff were super. The only thing stopping 5 stars was our table wasn't ready when we arrived and we were invited to have a drink at the bar whilst we waited. Unfortunately most of our party are elderly and unable to sit on the high bar stools so had to stand and no one wanted a drink. It also meant that the end of our meal was hurried in order to leave on time for the concert we had booked. Apart from this we will be definitely booking again.

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 😀
