Booked a table for 5 for lunch. Seated in corner away from main rotunda area. Impression of building and fittings very good. Welcome at door very good but slow to get a drink at the table. very friendly staff but starter for one took for ever and was cancelled but arrived seconds later . However, the cost was removed from the final bill which was generous. Overall the food was very good, nice atmosphere but let down by slow service. Would like to try a table in the rotunda or if only two sitting at the central bar. Well worth a visit but be prepared to wait!

Lovely place and attentive staff. I’ve been a few times for brunch and dinner and have been a little disappointed and don’t think it matches its sister stores. Twice, I’ve had brown avocado served for brunch and I’ve been a little underwhelmed.

Lovely atmosphere, attentive service and delicious food. Reasonably priced too. Highly recommend the coconut yoghurt with fresh fruit and the eggs royal.

I’ve been to the Ivy in London and Edinburgh on a number of occasions and always had a first class experience but my first visit to the Cheltenham branch was disappointing

Building and location are great but the staff and food was very average, staff were unwilling to deviate from the menu when I asked for a side dish that wasn’t listed - it was for some vegetables which were served with other dishes but weren’t listed as a side. Other branches have previously said “let me ask the chef” and they always deliver, Cheltenham staff were of the opinion you can only have food exactly as it appears on the menu, not prepared to ask the chef

Minor point I know but it set the scene for the service all evening - food was also put in front of the wrong people and cutlery didn’t match the food served, no bread offered etc

If this was a normal priced chain restaurant it would have been a 5* but I expect more from the Ivy brand

This was our first visit to The Ivy and we will certainly be back. A little expensive for casual lunch but excellent value for a special meal. The food and wine were both very good.
