Contemporary British
Ideally located between the stunning Sussex Coastline and the beautiful South Downs, the Ivy Chichester Brasserie is the perfect spot for anyone taking a break between shopping on the city's bustling high street, or the visitors who flock to see its famous cathedral and art gallery.

The ground floor includes a round bar area while the restaurant's stained-glass windows take their design cues from the history that surrounds this beautiful cathedral city. Lavish furnishings and other eclectic design touches will appeal to theatre-goers here for the acclaimed Chichester Festival. The brasserie's outdoor terrace features comfortable seating, plants and lanterns, so when it's cold outside, you can still dine alfresco.

    We had the afternoon tea. The food wasn’t as nice as we’ve had before. The value for money was poor. The waitress didn’t seem interested in us. The green juice was not very nice, would’ve preferred an option. Too much sweets and not enough savoury. Style over substance.

    We went o the Ivy to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It felt very special. The staff made a point of wishing us a happy anniversary and we got a little complementary anniversary dessert at the end. The service was brilliant. Understated and just right. food was perfect. WE had a great time and won't hesitate to go back.

    Wow! What an incredible place to eat, drink and be merry. The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding and the price was reasonable. My friend and I chose the 2 course menu for £19.70 we also had a cocktail each. My friend was then given a FREE desert as it was her birthday. We didn’t ask or request this it just happened. Thank you for a night to remember.

    Couldn’t fault our time there. We booked a table for our son’s 18th birthday celebrations. Food was fantastic, service was excellent, staff very attentive & the atmosphere and decor perfect. Little hiccup with how one of our steaks was cooked but it was dealt with without fuss and to our satisfaction. Will definitely go again. Recommend the monkfish and prawn curry - Devine!

    The last time I went I had a an aperol spritz in a large glass and so looked forward to it yesterday. Not only was it reduced to the smallest glass ever ( when an aperol is always in a balloon big glass) but it was so weak I could hardly taste it. I hate being ripped off. I’m happy to pay for an expensive drink but that’s just not fair. You’re cutting corners. Not impressed and I’m sorry to say it’s put me right off.

    We enjoyed a very good lunch. The general decor is attractive and the ambience is good. Service excellent. The only downside was extreme proximity of next table making it difficult to avoid hearing conversations - but staff acted immediately to move us to different seats.

    Well cooked, well presented and delicious food. Great attention to detail. Allergies catered for. Staff efficient and friendly. Made you feel special. Lovely ambiance The set menu was good value for money but an included side dish would be good. Looking forward to visiting here again. Suited us perfectly for pre theatre but would be equally good for celebrations or just a cosy dinner for two. The decor was warm and attractive ( the ladies toilets a real talking point especially the ceiling)
