The Ivy


The legendary Ivy needs no introduction. Beloved of stage and screen luminaries as well as lesser mortals, its 90-year-old position in the London dining circuit is unassailable.

We came here right when The Ivy opened so we could catch our early flight. The place just opened at 8 am on a Saturday morning and we were the only customers there the whole time. The interior was beautiful and I can imagine this is the place to be for weekend brunch if we only get here at 11am! The location, food and decor are definitely to be sought after.
