    A very enjoyable long lunch with family celebrating my wife’s birthday. Lots of food, cocktails, wine and a delicious birthday cake provided by the restaurant. A fantastic afternoon and looking forward to returning.

    As usual the service and meal was excellent. The decor in the ladies toilet is amazing. My only complaint is that I cannot find the house red anywhere as it is delicious.

    Best veggie brekkie I've ever had (avo, halloumi, poached eggs with hollandaise, little hash browns, mushroom and loads of toast and butter!) Quirky vibe which we adored! Well spaced tables, excellent customer service - will be coming back very soon.

    Avoid the fish pie special. Mostly potato and all flavorless. Also keep on the waitstaff for your opening drinks. Ours took 35 minutes to appear.

    I always love the Ivy but this time disappointed. The service was slow, and we were put on a table right at the front hidden behind a huge plant. Lighting was dark and after our starters arrived the mains took an awful long time to arrive. People long arrived after us received mains before us so not sure if they forgot! Shame as this was a wedding gift voucher we had to use up, so was a meant to be even more special. Then we had to pay service charge when It was actually poor (waitress kept dropping cutlery) and order and food slow. Not usual standards, but didn’t complain as put it down to maybe they were having an off night. Nether the less it was still very disappointing for the IvY. Hope their standards aren’t slipping.

    We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and had our baby in tow. Very welcoming atmosphere and staff always on hand to help. An example is when a waiter spotted me with my baby heading towards the toilets and took me to the baby changing area himself and held the door open for me to go in- so helpful when hands are full! Food was lovely. Will definitely be back.

    I usually love my lunch at The Ivy but we had afternoon tea and were left disappointed. I would recommend the Ivy for lunch but not for afternoon tea. We had to ask for the right number of cakes and did not feel there was enough savoury items. The food was ok but nothing special.

    Our waiter was most helpful, attentive and chatty, a really nice guy. We were catching up with a friend who was over from Australia, and whom we hadn't seen for three years! He was very kind and patient, and mindful of the fact that we were chatting and hadn't paused for breath to read the menu!

    This is the second time coming to The Ivy and again it was great! We tried the summer afternoon tea for my birthday and all food and drinks were delicious!! The staff are so attentive, kind and pay close attention to detail. They even surprised me with a birthday celebration dessert which was such a lovely end to the meal! Highly recommended and would come again for afternoon tea!

    Had a lovely evening at The Ivy winchester for our Anniversary It would have been 5 stars but my husband’s veal was really chewy unfortunately. I had the shepherds pie which was delicious The service was really good! We had a free dessert also as it was our anniversary but they didn’t tell us until after we ordered our desserts . Good Ambiance and would go again .

    My husband and I had the most wonderful experience. Service was absolutely brilliant as soon as we walked through the door to leaving 2 hours later. Josh our waiter was very attentive and recommended certain foods and side orders. The wine was quite expensive but it was very good. The food was extremely tasty and good size portions and wonderful variety. We were never made to feel rushed at any point. We had a little surprise at the end of our meal for our anniversary which was a lovely gesture. Would we go back? ABSOLUTELY. Could not find one fault.
