The Ivy Castle View
service was amazing! staff were always one step ahead of us
Good and service is good. We went for our anniversary meal and were packed in next to others either side of us. It didn’t make the occasion feel very special at all and it seemed they just wanted to get as many tables crammed in the space as possible.
We were also immediately told that the table would be required at 8.45 when our table was booked for 7pm. Hardly enough time for a relaxed 3 course meal. I don’t remember seeing this at the rime of booking either.
The atmosphere, team, food and drinks are top tier. Can’t wait for my next visit - thank you for a wonderful experience!
It’s always a treat to go to The Ivy. It never lets you down. From the ambiance to the staff to the food.
I think if you’re going to offer a children’s menu then things like the gravy should be plain and rather than the rich flavour you use for the adult food. Also the duck starter portion size is unbelievably small.
We like visiting this restaurant and invariably enjoy a good meal. However, this time the fire alarm went off three times and the communication from the staff as to what was happening was very poor. As the alarms were going off automatic fire screens lowered, dividing the restaurant into separate areas, spooking at least one claustrophobic customer. There was a complete lack of leadership from the restaurant’s numerous managers (they suddenly became invisible) despite a recorded message telling us to leave. Only when we were paying the bill did we find out that it was a fire alarm test organised by the shopping centre’s management. Perhaps they could have told us?
We recently visited the Ivy, we had an amazing time. The staff was welcoming and very professional, the food was delicious. We are definitely coming back!!!!!!
Wife's birthday with friends. Service and ambience was lovely. A great night
A special place to dine. Service is always excellent and food never disappoints
Excellent location, fantastic views. However, service was slow compared to Ivy Cobham, food was cold and the waitress forgot to put the order through so waited an hour and a half before we had our main meal.
Beautiful restaurant in the heart of Guildford with outlook looking out onto the castle with a pleasant airflow and deco on ambiance.
Staff are very courteous and efficient and the food presentation and quality was excellent.
A lovely evening at The Ivy - food was fantastic as was the service. Made every effort to accommodate dietary requirements with the vegetarian menu. A fab dining experience.
All the staff really helpful and a lovely sunny evening brought indoors via the open window
Good food and a really enjoyable evening
Food was lovely though sandwiches were a little cold but probably straight from fridge. Initially, only half a cup of quite stewed tea brought but they were happy to top up with hot water. Would recommend tea review policy 😀.
Cakes were delicious and scones warm and crumbly. Overall, a pleasant way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary.
Great atmosphere/busy restaurant even on a Monday lunch time. The doors were open with lovely view to castle. Service excellent, food good. Very good drinks menu - pricey but worth it.
Only negative was being told that table was needed in 2 hours 10 mins the minute we arrived.
Wonderful waitress. Fantastic food and amazing surroundings.
Was one of the girls birthdays and normally a small birthday desert comes out, but it didn’t which was a shame - but was still a lovely meal
We felt a bit rushed and we in and out in just over an hour. The food was superb. We lost count of the number of times our waitress said "Amazing" :-)
Food and service excellent . Drinks were slightly on the expensive side. We were dining out with my parents who found it hard to hear over the noise level. Maybe turn the music volume down one .
Celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary at the Ivy in Guildford we had super friendly service and the meal was excellent as usual. Can’t wait to go back for our next celebration…
Really great staff and service. Very knowledgeable on the gluten free foods. Great experience
Lovely location and great food. The service team were very pleasant and efficient. I’m sure we will be back soon
Whilst our food was very nice, the service was not great and we waited 15 minutes to order our first drink. This was compounded by the fact that when we arrived we were told we had to leave our table at 7.15 so that only left 1.5 hours to eat 3 courses and have a coffee!
We had a lovely, and beautifully presented, afternoon tea. The staff were efficient and helpful but they were very busy.
It was bad weather and they were unable to use the outside dining area which made the indoor space quite crowded
Fantastic atmosphere great food service was excellent attentive but not intrusive booked at short notice would definitely recommend
As always food, drink and service was outstanding.
Pleasant experience, wish they would do breakfast during the week. Then it would be less busy and better service at weekends!
The overall experience was one of excellence and the focus of all the staff was to give a dining experience to be remembered and want to go back.
Anyone walking in you immediately feel the professionalism, attention to detail and if they can accommodate your request they will.
Such an amazing experience, the food was amazing, all of the staff made us feel really welcome. Especially the young man who took us to our table. Only thing we would of liked our table for a bit longer!!
At some points the music got quite loud so if you struggle to hear then maybe this place isn’t for you.
The food was amazing and the decor is very cool!
Friendly service, great food and a good range of mocktails for those driving (always appreciated!). Atmosphere was fun and lively thanks to the DJ. A great Saturday night!
Fantastic meal, great atmosphere brilliant!
It was fantastic! Need to back over there. Highly recommened.
We had a beautiful inside table but right by the open doors, with a view of the Castle and the breeze through the windows - perfect.
The service was impecable.
The food was very good - a few more vegetarian/vegan options would have been appreciated.
Wine was good but no large glass options available so the cheaper option was to buy a bottle, although we really only wanted 2 large glasses.
The wine was placed away from our table on ice but we would have appreciated it by the table so we could help ourselves and not have to disturb the waitors every time we wanted a top up!
We would have appreciated the option of free tap water.
Overall, I have wanted to visit here for so long and we were celebrating something special and The Ivy did not disappoint.
In the last 2 days we have had breakfast and dinner at The Ivy and will return for Afternoon Tea! We will definitely return for my husband's 60th coming up soon.
We were treated by the staff very well, all were very polite.
Lovely atmosphere, fabulous service. The only thing I would say is a few more savoury options wouldn’t go a miss. 3 finger sandwiches wasn’t enough really.
Thank you for a wonderful meal and experience once again. We were celebrating our anniversary and the thoughtful attention to detail with 'happy anniversary' cakes on-the-house was excellent.
Definitely a favourite of ours if we have something to celebrate or a treat!
Having eaten at the Ivy a week previously I ordered the same vegan dish, tomato & avocado cocktail starter & it wasn't quite as good, less flavour & felt less fresh.
Would love more vegan options.
Such a lovely experience, gorgeous food and drinks. Even the toilets are beautiful!
