    I had been given a voucher last year from my family that I misplaced ! I did eventually find it again, but unfortunately, it had expired !! I got in touch with The Ivy in the hope that they would still accept the expired voucher. I was delighted when their head office got back in touch to say I could use it . We booked The Ivy in the square in Edinburgh. The staff were amazing, the food was excellent . We were delighted with our overall experience. Thank you so much to the Ivy for accepting our voucher as a goodwill gesture. You guys made my birthday celebrations complete. Would definitely go again. The place is amazing ! Thanks again Alison 😊

The food itself was impeccable. Lightly seasoned, spot on 👌 Would highly recommend and will be back as soon as I can! Merci encore et a bientot. Ellie
