The Ivy itself is an institution, fantastic reviews, some saying it's overrated but most raving about the quality. However, i always felt there existed that aura of stuffiness which has put me off going there in the past. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was posh inside but not in an intimidating way. Friendly staff guided us to our table where we proceeded to look hungrily at the very British menu provided. I started with Eggs Benedict, roast lamb for my main and ended with a chocolate pudding. Mr Foodie – fiend stuffed himself with gnocchi to start, skate for main and a sorbet for dessert (with ‘Happy Birthday’ written for added effect in chocolate). All those plus drinks came to just over £100. My food was near perfect. I half wanted it to be rubbish so that i could say it wasn't worth the money but it was actually very lovely and i left with a big smile on my face, well we both did.
