Based in the beautiful leafy village of Cobham, The Ivy Cobham Brasserie brings the chic interiors and lengthy all-day menu that Ivy restaurants are known for, to a more rural location. Sitting right on Cobham’s charming High street, this outpost of The Ivy is a great place to visit, whether you’re wanting a quick breakfast with friends, or a more indulgent three course dinner.
From the outside, the restaurant has a real pub-like feel to it; a traditional sign hangs from the painted brick façade which is covered in panelled windows, and various plants and creepers climb up the walls. However, once inside, everything is as you might expect from an Ivy restaurant. Pieces of modern art dangle from the colourful walls, elaborate chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and the seats are all upholstered in bright blues and yellows. The Ivy Cobham Brasserie also has the added bonus of a beautiful little terrace area, on which you can enjoy your food during warmer months.
There is an array of different menus available including a breakfast menu, a set price menu, and a separate vegetarian and vegan menu. However, the main offering is the all-day menu which features a variety of tempting dishes. Starters range from truffled wild mushrooms served on a potato rosti with a quail’s egg, to seared scallops with cauliflower puree. When it comes to main courses, expect everything from The Ivy’s signature shepherd’s pie, to lobster linguini. For those wanting a lighter bite, there is also a selection of sandwiches available. If you have any space left, there are puddings available including apple tart and rum baba.
The drinks offering varies from an extensive wine list, to a variety of cocktails, spirits and beers. The Ivy Cobham Brasserie also has a number of soft drink options too, for children and those not wanting to drink.
