The food was nice but there was a very long black hair in my entree which was off putting. The staff were polite but not very attentive. There was very little atmosphere in the restaurant as a whole. I would not go back.

Courteous staff, comfortable environment although it was extremely noisy once a larger corporate group arrived which spoiled the overall atmosphere a little. Food was good quality, well cooked and generous in size but all of our dishes seemed lacking in seasoning/depth of flavour from the potato dauphinoise to the peppercorn sauce to the scrambled eggs at breakfast and even the syrup sponge pudding had little discernible syrup sweetness. Well made cocktails although can’t accommodate off menu cocktails sadly, soft drink pump wasn’t working when we stayed. As we had a heritage break allowance towards dinner we ate in the brasserie but if we were paying in full, I think we’d have eaten elsewhere as the menu was pretty traditional. We’d really urge the hotel to rethink the 80s/90s rock music and instant latte at breakfast though, neither went down well. Overall, satisfying for plainer hotel fare but a little work on the seasoning could make a big difference.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for one night and had supper at the Brasserie. Food was amazing. Fantastic steak with amazing dauphinoise potatoes absolutely delicious. Starters were also fab along with deserts of which I had two! the cheese board and caramel.

Awful afternoon tea. Sandwiches were basic, cakes were dry, no waiter to be seen and overpriced. Would not visit again.

We have been twice now and we managed to taste two different seasonal menus on which both were amazing and the service is very attentive. You really could ask for more !! Well maybe more dessert sheer heaven.

Really helpful and friendly staff. This was the first wedding we have attended here and everything flowed beautifully. The food was really good and staff very attentive. We really liked our room and plan to return in the near future.

We visited the Brasserie for the first time on our wedding anniversary. The service and food were excellent. In fact first class. Raul was very particular to detail, thank you. A anniversary to remember. We look forward to a return trip soon.

We had a lovely afternoon tea, real value for money and super service from friendly hosts. The cakes were really tasty and warm scones too! We did not feel rushed at all and more tea and coffee was no inconvenience to staff. Our waiter was humorous and attentive. A very nice place to have afternoon tea.

The staff were fantastic and the normal tea was lovely. However, I had to ask twice for a high chair and the dairy free option was really not very nice. The scone was rock hard and the cake substitutes were 2 very hard and unappealing flap jacks. It didn't feel like a lot of thought had gone in to providing alternatives for people with allergies/ dietary requirements.

Excellent service all night. Dined here many times over the years and the quality of the food was probably the best it has been. No-one could fault any of the meals, and we all had a really good evening.

We had a great visit to the Ivy. The staff were very accommodating to our requests and gave us a suitable amount of time to decide on our meal. I had a fabulous afternoon tea, which was the best I've ever had. Our waiter who gave us our bill was also very friendly offering a good conversation with us. Very pleased and look forward to returning.

More choice for someone following a vegan and/or wheat free diet would have been great. It was good food though and good service so no complaints from me!

Even though we had a complimentary afternoon tea voucher the service was not great in that nobody really checked on us or asked if we would like a drink other than to give us another pot of tea - there were also a lack of cutlery. The foot itself was very nice though
