Had booked a table for the Bistro last night. Restaurant very busy but staff made us feel very welcome despite a full house. There were four of us. We all ordered different dishes no-one was disappointed - all food was fresh and hot. No complaints. We live locally and will definitely return. Decor very modem and bright.

I have been a couple of times since it was refurbished and I keep being impressed. The food is great, as well as the atmosphere and service. Its great that the venue now matches the quality of the food.

After being seated and asked would we like drinks which arrived after 10 minutes it took a further 20 minutes for the main order to be taken by the... More

I visited the Ivanhoe on Saturday for the first time and what a lovely place it is. The décor is really beautiful, very bright and modern and it is absolutely spotless. The bistro is really pretty leading into a traditional bar with open fire and very comfortable seating. We were greeted by a very nice receptionist and were directed to... More

I ate the chicken stack and the garlic potatoes separately dipping the garlic potatoes into the gravy. Towards the end of the meal I poured the garlic potatoes... More
