The Ivy is situated in the heart of the West End making it ideal for vibrant pre-theatre dining. The stained glass windows and wood-panelling create a welcoming ambience in which to enjoy classic British cuisine.


Comprising a reception area with baby grand piano and a dining room, the room can accommodate 32 people at one oval table or 60 on individual tables of ten. The space is suitable for 120 people for a canapé reception. Seasonal menus reflect the brasserie favourites of The Ivy’s menu.


The brasserie-style menu has a particularly British flavour, peppered with dishes from around the world such as Bang Bang chicken and Thai-baked sea bass.


 The Ivy’s broad wine list draws heavily from the Old World, but with New World wines and cocktails all carefully considered.

Lady Blonde's Highlights

Seared scallops are my weakness. The Ivy serve them with broad beans, pancetta and sauce Jacqueline (£15.75 / £23.00).
