The Ivy Kensington Brasserie brings the familiar luxury of The Ivy on West Street to a relaxed yet sophisticated all-day dining restaurant on Kensington High Street.

Sample our extensive range of quality food and delicious cocktails at your leisure from breakfast until late, whether you are a local resident, work close by or are visiting some of London’s best loved landmarks such as The Royal Albert Hall.

Our garden terrace is situated at the back of our restaurant and provides the perfect respite away from the hustle and bustle of the high street. Adorned with flowers and foliage, it is the perfect spot to soak up the sun during the summer months. Due to the nature of British summer our terrace cannot be booked ahead, so please just pop in.

Open seven days a week and comprised of a main restaurant, bar and a semi-private table for ten for an extra special experience, The Ivy Kensington Brasserie provides the perfect setting for any occasion.

Lovely garden, with a great atmosphere. Everyone was socially distanced. Much cheaper than you expect for the quality of food.

We enjoyed our evening very much. We know this Ivy well and have always had a good time. My husband’s steak was first served overdone and then the replacement was too rare. But the manager took off the charge and also gave us a creme brûlée on the house.
The steak was the only issue. Thank you all for a good time.

This was such a good place to eat outside. The tables overlooked a lovely garden and there was a canvas roof to shelter us from the rain. Heaters as well. The staff were friendly, the music just the right volume, and the food excellent.

I’m sick of restaurants only giving you a table for a very short amount of time, in this case just a hour. It’s not really worth making the effort to go out. We ordered tea and as it arrived were told they needed the table in half an hour!!! I want to support the hospitality industry but they need to understand that we need time to enjoy socialising again.

Excellent service, food, ambience and attention to detail. Chef cooked me something special again, what wonderful service! Made to feel very special and my friend was given a lovely cake and candle for her birthday which made her happy. We both felt appreciated and welcomed. Can't recommend highly enough.

Wonderful service, food, ambience and attention to detail. Because if certain allergies the chef even cooked me something special just for me, which was much appreciated. That's what I call service and why I shall be returning again soon. Very highly recommended.

Good restaurant with specialities - excellent service with a good wine list.
Having to dine alfresco and with the removal of the screens in the garden area, reduces the appeal and I would wait until after the 17th May to visit

So wonderful to be back at the IB as we call it. Unusual to be outside on the side alley pavement but that did not detract for one moment from the wonderful food, service and atmosphere overall that I've come to associate with this lovely place. Thanks to all!
