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 very warm and friendly. We ordered the antipasti whilst we decided on our mains and to be fair that dish was great value for money. But the menu on a whole was boring, there wasn't anything that made you feel you was on for a great night. My partner asked for the steak and I (on the advise of the staff) chose the pork belly.
This is when the night went downhill. We must have waited about an hour for our meals to come out and then, Much to my disappointment, both meats were over cooked. You could tell the quality of the meat was good, but it was let down by the cooking. We raised the issue with staff and not so much as a free drink was offered as an apology.
As for our dining in the future, we won't be considering the ivy house. Case of once bitten, twice shy
