    Oh dear oh dear. What went wrong. Service not slow but dead. Food cold. Bill not correct . To be fair the Manager sorted it out but without her it would have been worse. I’ve never had this experience at Granary before as it’s so reliable but not today. Not sure what happened but we disappointed our friends and they’ll never listen to us again!!

    We enjoyed the Special Spring Menu which was extremely good value and just the right choice of menu items. The restaurant was extremely busy and the staff did struggle in maintaining their usual excellent service levels. Surprisingly we waited a particular long time to place an order for coffees and for the bill to be brought which I would have expected to have more focus given the demand for tables. No evidence of senior management which is not acceptable.

    Table booked at 1330h, sat at 1400h, reception did not institute table occupation times. Noisy restaurant difficult to converse. Repeatedly nudged in back by waitresses while sat in overcrowded space. Delayed service of coffees & apple tart (1/2h). Complimentary champagne to teetotal guests.

    Disappointed with this visit. We were made to feel unwelcome throughout. Given 1 hour 45 minutes for our lunch but the service was incredibly slow which made this unachievable. We weren’t given the ‘Toast to Spring’ set menu despite booking this experience. Very few gluten free options despite noting intolerances on the booking. We honestly felt like we were inconveniencing the serving team by being there/ asking for things. I would suggest staff are retrained in making diners feel welcome and perhaps more servers hired to make the 1 hour 45 min time limit feasible.

    All staff so friendly and helpful, particularly Roberto behind the bar, seeing to everyone and everything with smiles and good nature… Brilliant food, particularly the mozzarella and tomato salad, fish cake, shepherds pie and creme brûlée though the chocolate ice cream sundae disappointing…not much chocolate, tough slab of meringue and too much ice cream… Everything else was perfect and it is one of our favourite places when we visit London!

    Good food. Always enjoy The Ivy. Sadly the service was poor. Our waitress poured water then disappeared. It too 30 mins to get someone to serve us drinks. Our second waiter was great and things picked up. So a relaxing meal became a rush as we had theatre reservations.

    A very noisy table dominated the restaurant in the afternoon and staff did nothing to help make it quieter. The rest of the tables in the room were unhappy and staff did not stop the one table ruining the atmosphere. Not good enough service.

    Slow to get any attention after being seated but service when it arrived was friendly and quite efficient. The size of the squid starter was really too small for the price, and we actually left a little hungry. But the mains, wine, ambience, were good overall.

    Terrible experience, birthday lunch celebration for 5 . Three received meals after a long wait, two waited for an age, then one meal arrived, and the other again took an age, two separate waiters apologised. When meal eventually arrived not cooked, waited again for the meal, all others except mum had finished their meals, my husband would not eat without me his was now cold. The second meal was also not properly cooked. We were then sent a new female waitress who was so embarrassed to apologise I asked why we had three waiters serve and apologise, apparently our first was on break but seen serving other tables. No real care that a birthday meal was ruined. Deducted 3 meals and service charge feeling is no charge should have been asked for, ruined an otherwise lovely afternoon.

    It’s a bit of a tourist trap which shows in the food quality which is poor. Small portions, food arrived looking like it had sat on the pas for too long and no flavour at all! They are charging a high price for low grade food. I work at a prestigious hospitality place so know what great food should be and at what price. I would not recommend eating here.

    Great atmosphere and friendly staff. We initially went because of the fixed price lunch offer but choose other dishes in the end. That said, the 'fixed price' lunch choice was good and the restaurant was very busy so it must have enticed customers in. Would recommend the duck salad. Good drinks list but a bit on the expensive side.

    We booked but were kept waiting 30 minutes. We had to sit outside in the rain and cold. No one updated us on progress. The food was good but certain items were not available. 13.5% service added to the bill by the restaurant. Service was not worth that. I could also overhear waiting staff swearing as I walked past to get to the toilets.

    There was no indication when I booked or when I arrived that we had a 2 hour limit - we hadn’t even finished our meal when we were told to finish our drinks at the bar. It interrupted our evening and wasn’t a great experience. The bar staff however were very attentive and we had a free cocktail which was lovely. The food was very basic and the portion sizes were quite small. The menu was also very limited unless you like red meat. Disappointed.

    Booked The Granary for a birthday lunch. We arrived to a packed restaurant, with tables rammed together. We ordered drinks and some bread for the table. The bread arrived with the starters very quickly. It took two chasers before the drinks arrived. It took three chasers to get water for the table. The mains were also quick. Tasty although small. The Shepherd’s Pie was just that. A blob of brown mince with piped potato, served in the middle of a plate. Our server hadn’t asked whether we would like sides, nor mentioned that we may need them. We then decided to share a cheese plate with port. The cheese arrived - but no port. We were then told it was out of stock and was being sent from another restaurant. This was set against witnessing a row between two staff and another table also getting up to complain. Not conducive to a pleasant lunch. It’s the third time I’ve experienced poor service at an Ivy establishment. It’s a shame. Clearly the kitchen staff are good - the food is generally tasty, served hot and fast. It is the waiting staff that let this chain down. We noticed a complete lack of making eye contact with diners. It is painful trying to get their attention. I will avoid all Ivy restaurants from now on.

    A very reliable member of the Ivy Brasserie chain. Good food. Great value set menu. Great service. Only one gripe..the acoustics vary a lot from section to section. A common problem in this area of mainly repurposed railway buildings.

    Return visit, location, food, ambience all great. Just think the hot weather and a fully packed restaurant perhaps gave the staff a lot of work, which meant the service wasn’t as good as previous visit. But as we weren’t in a rush it’s was ok, and complimentary coffees and chocolates were much appreciated. Would return.
