    The rye bread served with our smoked salmon was too salty. Please change your supplier! We also had to ask for butter. Apart from that, the food was good.

    Nice food, but nothing majorly special for the price point. My partners fish wasn’t cooked although no problems in sorting a replacement that can hot and cooked through. Nice ambience, tables, seating etc

    My sister bought me this Champagne afternoon tea for my 70th birthday My sister had been before & said how nice it was so it was on my list to try & it lived up to my expectations, what a lovely touch when they brought the cake stand and proceeded to pour water into the middle decoration, smoke came puffing out, so spectacular. Would definitely recommend for any occasion.

    We gave 3 for ‘services’ because of the staff forgot to serve the water we requested. We had to request it with another waiter. For our experience, the staff were a bit lack of attentive. Nice building but the interior is a bit dated and tired, the noise level was a little bit too much especially from the bar area. We hope they will take this as a constructive criticism.

    We came to celebrate my daughters 23rd birthday and we were looked after by the very lovely Tenesha & May (?). We always seem to have Tenesha looking after us whenever we visit the Ivy to celebrate and she even remembered us and where we had sat on previous visits. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the Ivy team and the food was amazing too. Loved the birthday treat for Luci too. Thank you! :-)

    My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal for our wedding anniversary - we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and a pleasant gap between courses as to not feel rushed. The restaurant itself is stunning with an eclectic decor ( the ladies are a sight to behold ). All the waiting staff were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. A very enjoyable lunch and we will be returning

    The food was lovely, the only downside was there was a long delay between mains and dessert, we felt rushed by the staff at the end of the meal as they said the table was needed in 5 mins for the booking. This could have been avoided if the desserts had been quicker.

    The Ivy is a place for occasions, for feeling a bit of luxury and the building ambience is lovely. The food is outstanding but not necessarily to everybody's tastes/slightly limiting. (the only reason not not described as outstanding)

    Absolutely amazing! We were early and they kindly let us sit at our table and have a drink whilst we waited. All the staff were so friendly and attentive. Our afternoon tea was delicious. Perfectly balanced between sweet and savoury. It was just enough! Would highly recommend! And we’ll definitely be back soon.

    Great food and value. Service mostly excellent but as the meal progressed it was difficult to attract anyone’s attention. We had to make the running to request a bill. Please give more attention to diners. I really did not welcome a text chasing our arrival 7 minutes after our table time. I had confirmed 24 hours earlier we were coming and had amended the table for 2 to a table for 3.

    Afternoon tea was lovely especially the dry ice smoking in a pot when brought over. Was a little disappointed with the scones as were a bit over cooked and not quite enough filling in the chicken sandwich but being picky. Lovely atmosphere and a lovely interior. We really liked our waiter who was very friendly and attentive.
