Went with my husband. Food just ok. Service ok. Toilets were disgusting. Restaurant was quiet so do not understand how these facilities were left unchecked and unclean. Best thing we had was the glass of wine.

Dear Helen, thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We appreciate all feedback whether good or otherwise. I am very disappointed to hear about your experience in the restaurant. The toilets on the 3rd floor belong to House of Fraser and are checked every hour by their cleaning team. This has obviously not happened and for that... More

Visited The Ivory today for a light lunch which was delicious. Service was impeccable - when I asked for more of the delicious bread it was quickly delivered with a smile. Great menu, great food, superb staff!

This is the second time here at The Ivory and like the first it did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived the waiting staff were polite, courteous and diligent, managing to find the perfect balance between attentiveness without being over bearing.
