Excellent service and good food made for a very enjoyable evening. Tables are well spaced, with the option of outside heated seating for multi-household groups. I think management could apply a bit more scrutiny to those dining inside and claiming to be from one household though.

This was our first time dining here the service was good although our mains arrived cold and the vegetables. However as soon as we bought this to their attention they changed all our mains in fact my daughter did not like her mains that she ordered and they immediately gave her the option to change it. The mains arrived piping hot.

Frustratingly slow service when a restaurant was busy rather than being full. We hear a lot about the Restaurant and Leisure Industry being under pressure and it seems the Ivy are not committing sufficient staff or are not utilising them efficiently.

Lovely lunch/brunch experience. We ordered eggs benedict, pancakes and fish and chips. Food was hot, fresh and satisfying. We had a few specialty drinks as well which were very good. Great ambiance, location and staff.

The quality of the food was exceptional. Service was, at times, a little slow - hovering when not needed, but nowhere to be seen when needed.

Celebrated a birthday lunch for daughter, took pictures outside due to lovely foilage around building. Friendly welcome on entry, quick temperature check due to Covid then shown to table and seated which was cosy and comfortable. We had prawn and a soup starter then braised duck for daughter which was excellent and the very flavoursome shepherd pie for myself, dessert the apple tart and chocolate pud dessert was lovely followed by cocktails I asked for a strawberry dacquri to be mixed for me off the menu and it was made to perfection. All in all a great lunch everyone said they enjoyed the atmosphere food and drink and will definitely return. A big thank you to the staff who was welcoming and provided excellent service.

Great service and able to sit outside. Shame not all the heaters were working though. Food was good if not a little overpriced. Better value when you go for lunch/brunch. The Dinner menu is a bit overpriced.

Good place for lunch and set menu before 6.30pm.

We dined at the Ivy Market Grill last Sunday evening. As it was the first weekend of the Tier 2 Covid restrictions the restaurant was very quiet. But the service and food were excellent and a safe and welcoming atmosphere .

We had a family brunch with gourmet children on Sunday: the place was decorated from the outside, everything inside was safe/covid compliant, with temperature check at the door and hand sanitiser... we were able to enjoy a yummy brunch and were well looked after. It's not really cheap... but quality is good so worth it!

Amazing all round. My partner and I both had the fillet steak and it didn’t disappoint. Second time visiting and certainly won’t be the last, the ambience and setting of The Ivy is beautiful not to mention the fantastic efforts and attention to detail from the staff.

The food was really tasty, but the waiter we had was really unfriendly and didn’t make it a positive experience. I also asked for some tap water and they brought a bottle of water, which we were then charged £4 for.

The waiter was poor at service starting his engagement with "yes?" Rather than any more fitting "how can I help" or "what would you like to order?". No lactose free menu; instead we had to wait for the manager to come over which took about ten minutes. The "medium" steak was served rare. The salmon was bland. Nice setting though

Service was absolutely appalling, ridiculous long wait for drinks and then the order was wrong. No apology at all. Food was great though - but the poor service and long waits for everything meant they couldn’t turn our table which led to a great catch up with our friends!

Relaxed and friendly but attentive service. Attention to detail.

Food was lovely. I had rum baba pudding and it was not overdosed in rum, but came with a side serving of rum so I could flavour it to my own taste .

Had a very nice time and despite it being in tourist land would recommend you to go.
