    Our table was near the door which proved quite draughty. Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive took our order and our first course arrived. Unfortunately we found the soufflé delicious but not very warm. The second course arrived which again was lukewarm . We never saw our waiter again and it seemed nobody was aware that my husband was on the set Christmas menu and another waiter had to be reminded. He took his dessert order and then asked which coffee he wanted. We waited quite a period of time for the dessert to arrive but in the meantime another waiter arrived with his coffee. Eventually the dessert arrived followed by the coffee but the accompanying mince pie came just before my husband finished his coffee. All in all a bit of a shambles

    Our meal was fabulous, wine choice fantastic, cocktails were delicious, once we reminded the bar waiter, he did not ask us what type of vodka martini we wanted to order, only assumed, which was sent back. We would have stayed and had a nightcap after our meal, however, table opposite could not read their menu, due to the lights were dimmed down so low in the restaurant, people were using their torches on their phones to read the menus. lots of flashing light, had to leave in case caused a migraine. If we visit again, it will be in day light.

    70th birthday lunch for husband 2 daughters and me. Stunning visit. Only tiny criticism is that medium rare steak was very medium. Didn’t send it back because it disrupts everything when one diner then has to wait sort of breaking the magic. Overall really impressed and pleased.

    We had afternoon tea on a Sunday! The restaurant was buzzing, the food was delicious, staff were fairly attentive although we had to ask for a top up (wine) consistently. This didn’t spoil our whole dining experience, we love going to the Ivy and this won’t stop us going back again 😍

    I made this booking to celebrate our granddaughter passing her driving test at the first attempt. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special. As we taken to the table our granddaughter was told that congratulations were in order. The food was amazing (I recommend the goose and turkey shepherd’s pie). My wife had fish and chips, our granddaughter had the burger with Camembert and her boyfriend had the aromatic duck curry. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We would all like to give a special thanks to our waiter Charlie who looked after us. He was very polite and just did everything possible to make it a special event. Looking forward to the next time.

    Although we were early for dinner [17.15] the place was very busy but super cosy. Our waiter was prompt and attentive. The decor is lovely, especially with Xmas decorations and the toilet is beautiful, with a ceiling of roses. We enjoyed our meal, the steak being very tender and chips delicious. The puddings were also great and we were offered an extra pudding as it was a celebration. This is not a budget restaurant, but justifies the price.

    Service was really good. Menu choice good. We were in the back area of the restaurant and would suggest you request this when booking if looking for a quieter table. The main restaurant was particularly noisy which hits you as soon as you enter. This area wasn’t even packed as we were shown through to our table at the back. Only criticism, air conditioning was quite a low setting and in certain areas it meant sitting in a draught

    Loved the food and service but we were in the top room and it was so noisy it spoilt it bit for us . I ended up with a headache and my ears are still buzzing and we were in a corner under an air con unit and I didn’t warm up until it was time to leave I had to use the candle to keep my hands warm. The noise wasn’t rowdy behaviour it was just people talking so it was probably the room acoustics

    Service was pretty slow and took too long to order food after sitting down which eventually got to the point where we were presented with bill and asked to vacate table when we had been waiting for 20 mins for an after dinner drink. Not too impressed as my wife didn’t get her drink. I ordered steak that was over cooked and had to be sent back. Loved the restaurant and it’s ambience but food and drink is expensive for what is essentially average pub food.

    We had a really lovely meal and some mocktails which were very reasonability priced. All staff were very nice and tentative but we did have to ask for another drink and I also noticed the table next to us also had to ask for another drink. We had a really lovely lunch and will be back.

    Lovely table near the window. Restaurant was busy but the well spaced out tables and use of nooks and recesses made it feel private nonetheless. Toilets way at back down flight of stairs which could be a problem for some.
