Last night we went to the ivy house in chalfont at giles because there was no availability at Gilbys in Amersham. We had heard great stuff about the ivy house, so thought it would be perfect for our annual Xmas date night. When I first entered the restaurant I found it to be a lovely place and the staff were...

We took 22 staff and volunteers to the Ivy House for lunch on 9th December and we had a brilliant time. We had the restaurant all to ourselves. Infact the Ivy House did not book in any other large parties on the day so they could ensure an exceptional service and they delivered! The food was sublime, my roast turkey... More

Just returned home after two very pleasant nights here. Warm welcome from friendly staff on arrival. I would agree with the other reviews that the rooms aren't huge. But they are plenty large enough for a couple of nights, perhaps smaller than you would get in a chain hotel, but they have tonnes of character. We dined in the bar... More

Should your trip be for personal reasons, that is to say should you be flexible with your hours to suit the staff, this may be your ideal choice! The food is excellent, far above what you might expect and not expensive either. The rooms seem to range from bijou to micro scale, but are characterful and well kept. Beds seem... More

firstly lovely place and excellent food, really good food. Felt like I was put under pressure regarding breakfast, it's a small B & B, but asked at 9pm if I wanted breakfast so that we didn't get the chef up without cause! The cleaner is however in early from 7.30 as we were corrected whilst she listened to our conversation...... More
