The Brummie edition of the wonderful establishment that is the Ivy Brasserie, is well situated on Temple Row, in central Birmingham. The stunning restaurant is surrounded by Cathedral Square, plenty of shops, and the station is nearby too.
The Ivy is ideal for classy meetings, lunches with friends, and after work cocktails with their offering of all-day dining dishes. For breakfast, you can expect a great selection of egg-based dishes from classic benedict to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. If you’re feeling particularly hungry, go for the Ivy Full English replete with all the usual trimmings. The restaurant also features some lighter options, and cocktails are available too. The restaurant also has a dedicated brunch menu, for weekends when you’re in the mood to indulge yourself in some something a bit more filling than eggs.
The regular lunch and dinner menus offer an eclectic mix of British staples and internationally-inspired fare. The food is exciting and is made from fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from the area. The most traditional item on the menu is the Ivy’s signature shepherd's pie, a delightful slow-braised lamb leg decadently smothered in Wookey Hole cheddar potato mash. Ivy also does special fish dishes of the day, fresh from the market, such as sole meuniere or lobster linguine. There is also a wonderful variety of steaks to choose from, in various cuts and weights with sauces such as béarnaise, green peppercorn, truffled red wine jus, and more.
Ivy Temple Row is a great choice for a range of different occasions, from marking happy events with friends to relaxing after work, in a beautiful restaurant with a classy cocktail. In addition to brunch, the restaurant also hosts an afternoon tea, replete with cream tea scones and delicate savoury sandwiches filled with luxurious ingredients, such as truffled chicken.
