    Food was not up to its usual standard. Burger was dreadful, prawn cocktail was not very good, schnitzel was overcooked and poor and broccoli was very under cooked and virtually raw. I always have liked it here on the many occasions i have visited but has it now become too much of a chain and focus not on food. It is too expensive for very average food.

    Normally 5/5 but last night disappointing. Lost drink order. When food finally came it was cold. They did re serve but then showed second serving on bill? Desert given FOC staff tried very hard but think maybe trying to do to many covers without trained staff?

    We had the afternoon tea, and the food was great! Just right for two people. Service was initially outstanding but then towards the end we were left staring at our empty plates for more than half an hour. And we didn't even get our tea that was suppose to be part of the afternoon tea package. Disappointed as it started off great but then service declined!

    We had a great lunch with lots to catch up on, so the waiter was brilliant at just checking every so often if we were ready to order with out being too intrusive. The cheese souffle is to die for, though it would be very filling for a starter. They very kindly did a birthday choux bun for my friends birthday as I had mentioned it in my booking. Thoughtful and great atmosphere.

    Excellent venue for a girls catch up lunch. Attentive and helpful service. Food came quickly and was excellent, particularly the desserts. Only downside is the loos! Queuing on the stairs which intereferes with the serving staff, trying to get up and downstairs to and from the kitchen with large trays, isn’t ideal and just felt a bit tacky considering the up market level of the restaurant

    Absolutely loved our meal last night. We both had vegan starters and mains and they were absolutely delicious. The only thing I was disappointed with was that we had to ask for the vegan menu and it wasn’t part of the main menu. These days I would have thought it should be part of the main menu or at least put with the main as a matter of course. Lovely evening though and the vegan menu was very good 😌

    Had a really enjoyable visit with our friends. We sat outside which was well presented. The food was very good value but unfortunately the service could have been a bit better … our waiter forgot a couple of items and one of our starters was the wrong one … other than that we had a good time.

    had the fixed price 3 course menu for lunch and the overall experience was excellent. Portions were generous for a fixed price menu, from experience elsewhere they can be quite small. Would have preferred not to have to climb two flights of stair to reach malle toilets

    Compared to previous visits we were disappointed, the sides to accompany our mains didn't arrive until half the main was eaten. We didn't feel we got value for our money.

    Went to IVY Marlow and received a great welcome from the team despite arriving at 5.30pm. The garden table was fabulous and we went on to enjoy a Lyre non alcoholic cocktail for me the driver and a glass of Veuve Clicquot Rose. The kids food arrived promptly and we all had a great evening. Thanks to all those who made it a special evening for my wife’s 40th.

    Went for a special birthday lunch with my mum. I had mentioned it was my mums birthday as part of the booking, it was a shame nothing was said as it would have been a nice touch, but we had a lovely lunch and drinks and would definitely recommend. Garden is beautiful we can't wait to come back!

    My wife's main course was underprepared and was replaced but mostly after the rest of us had finished. The heavy beer glass was too heavy and unnecessary...I asked for it to be replaced with a regular glass.

    We enjoyed lunch at the Ivy Garden which was a birthday celebration. We both chose from the lunchtime set menu which was very reasonably priced and the food was well cooked and delicious. The service was attentive without feeling rushed. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occassion.
