The Ivy Chelsea
Hidden behind an alluring flowery façade is an elegantly British casual dining experience. Located on Kings Road, a short walk from Sloane Square in London, The Ivy offers a relaxing break from the regular, boring restaurant experiences & offers an element of surprise & charm to dining.
With its large display windows bordered by dark green frames, tinted glass windows, fresh fragrant flower arrangements. The Ivy engages all of your senses almost instantly .
As you enter the restaurant you are greeted by a well stocked sweeping bar wrapped snug in rustic woody dark interiors. Make sure you have a reservation in place as this place fills up quickly -weekdays & weekends alike .Do not hesitate to make a polite request at the Reservation desk if you don’t have a booking in place. As the outdoor seating area is the most sought after- you may not get it at the last minute so stay flexible.
Ivy is an all weather place , Perfect to enjoy the warmth of Bonfires during winters & the freshness of Pimms during summers.
The Ivy has its cosy little corners to enjoy a romantic meal & it is big enough to accommodate a large group . No matter what the mood – you are bound to find your favourite spot at The Ivy.
Lunch time is extremely busy at The Ivy so be prepared to wait. I walked in without a reservation & was lucky enough to get a table outside. Pictures don’t do justice to the food and the overall experience I had. Make a reservation and experience dining with a difference.
The Ivy Chelsea Garden is an amalgamation of sophisticated & casual British dining experience & serves an extensive all-day menu of fresh food and great tasting cocktails.
