    Beautiful place, amazing food, very well presented. we were there for our wedding anniversary and the waiter and manager both congratulated us and brought us a nice little deserts that we wasn't expecting. (nor did we have to pay for it) it was a lovely touch to a lovely evening and made it even more memorable.

    The Ivy is every bit as memorable as it’s London restaurants but surpasses them with it's gorgeous building and decor! I can’t praise the staff enough - they were all attentive, courteous & friendly & made the whole experience a joy! The food was outstanding!! A varied menu with something for all tastes all delivered fresh and hot from the kitchen. Obviously The Ivy isn’t the cheapest place in Cheltenham but the overall experience is well worth the money and we can’t wait to go back!

    Rude inexperienced british kid on the desk who refused point blank to let a guest join us for a drink. She even warned the guest when he came to see us that the table was for 4 people only and he wasn't allowed to dine with us. So embarrassing. It was 5.30 pm. And there were empty tables around us and plenty of space to pull up an extra chair. Her job was to find a solution not to refuse a potential customer. This is where we now suffer after Brexit, losing all the people from Europe who know the craft of good service. It seems we are heading back to old seaside cafe rules of the 70s. Perocial people !!!

    After returning my main course twice, being told we would be looked after, then a change of shift happened and no one knew what had occurred. We left very dissappointed.

    Love eating in the restaurant under the atrium. Always great service from the staff. Arrived a little early this time so sat at the bar for a drink while waiting for our table. Lovely food, the only quibble is having eaten here a number of times the menu hasn’t changed much. Maybe add a couple of new dishes!?

    Wonderful experience for my mum-in-laws birthday as her first proper outing since the pandemic and kidney transplant. Received a little profiterole with candle as sweet surprise which she took home in a special box. She, quite rightly, felt like a queen! Lovely experience, thank you The Ivy.

    We arrived there very exited ( finally we could get a table, we tried before many times even just to get a drink they never given us a table . Maybe because we didn’t booked online ..) we celebrated our anniversary. Our waitress was amazing she was very nice but unfortunately the food was very disappointing. We had a Fish and Chips and the Chicken Milanese , the fish and chips was soggy and the milanese so oily. The Milanese was taken of from the bill as apologies. Very beautiful place but very noisy. The tables are very close to each other you can not have a private conversation because the table next to you will hear everything.

    Excellent service but we did not sit in Rotunda area which we prefer so it was quiet and no ambience. The vegetables were cold and we were very disappointed. Before now it has been 5 star but sadly not last night.

    Booked breakfast for a 50th celebration. The service was very good and the food was lovely. They gave me a small choux bun with a happy birthday chocolate and candle, which was a lovely touch. the only reason I have not given 5 stars throughout is due to their squashing everyone into one side of the restaurant despite their being lots of space as it was not busy at 0930 in the morning. They seated a family of 4 right next to us, with the children being very young (both under 7). So naturally they were quite noisy. I couldn't understand why they would seat a young family next to 2 ladies in their 50s when most of the restaurant was empty. We moved along to the next table to give both us and them some additional space.

    Afternoon Tea at the Ivy Cheltenham was enjoyed by each of us. It was lovely to do something special for the afternoon. The service was excellent although as was the food. We were very surprised to being given a service charge as both couples had gift vouchers for the special occasion. Nevertheless a good time was had by all.

    I treated my wife for her birthday. We had Ribeye steak. My steak had a little too much sinew in it, making it tough to chew. My wife's steak was good and that was more important. She loved the the birthday dessert treat.

    Service was very good. I had to change the number of guests from 6 to 5 and they listened to my request to be moved to the rotunda. Our waitress was charming and cheerful and very helpful. The bill came promptly when requested. All in all a very enjoyable meal.

    Although the standard of the food was good, the length of time it took to get it (45mins to get 1st course) ruined the whole evening. When soup eventually came it was luke warm and was served without bread, so I had to send it back which took another 10 minutes. There was an extended wait then (about 20 minutes) for mains to be served, but my wife had made a point of saying her egg needed to be hard; it came with a very soft egg, so that had to be returned & a further wait. To be fair, our server, who had been very good, did apologise profusely and ‘The Ivy’ did then make a significant contribution to the bill. Unfortunately,, it couldn’t really make up for a ruined celebration of my wife’s birthday.

    Main course Minute Steak was chosen by myself and my daughter and both were inedible, could not be chewed, and were immediately returned and two alternative main courses selected. Very disappointing. Complaint was dealt with promptly, no problem with the service.

    A visit to The Ivy is always a special occasion and I intend to keep it for that very purpose! Set in the Montpellier area of Cheltenham, The Ivy is housed in a most wonderful domed building and is an exciting place to visit just for the interiors. The staff are extremely well-trained with 'French' style service - unobtrusive, very purposeful and each person clearly takes their role very seriously. The venue itself is a fabulously uplifting space - Highly instagrammable if that's what you're in to! The drinks, wine list and cocktails are of a very high level and it's worth sitting near to the central drinks circle just to watch the cocktail artist at work. The food is always fabulous - unpretentious yet done beautifully. They clearly know what people want and give it to them in a low-key, highest quality manner. Worth mentioning - if you are there to celebrate something - make sure you mention it as The Ivy does like to help you celebrate if they can. Looking forward to my next visit!
