Harden's says

On a site that has changed hands a few times over the past couple of years (previously La Rive and Capanna, RIP), The Ivy group has chosen Cobham for the expansion of its grills-and-brasseries brand. Maybe the position of the Chelsea FC training ground just up the road had something to do with the decision?

“The food may be lacklustre but it’s adequate – we go for the warm and rich ambience, and the lovely garden”: a good summary of the appeal of this very popular Surrey branch of the upmarket Ivy brand. “Of course it lacks originality” but most reporters are forgive this and also the fact that it gets “noisy and busy”. Top Tip – “great place for brunch”.

“The Art Deco setting and conservatory garden areas are a delight” at this branch of the Ivy brand’s national rollout, by all accounts an improvement on the “rather tired Italian establishment” that preceded it. As for the celebs of the West End original – well, Surrey boasts its own, and TV hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have been spotted here more than once. The food splits opinion between “delicious” and “very very poor” – even from the same source, with one reporter moaning that “a great dinner” was followed by “an extremely disappointing lunch...”

In a ‘roll-out’ that would do McDonald’s proud, this iconic brand has gone for it this year, opening virtually simultaneously in practically all of the UK’s top restaurant cities. The ambition is impressive: let’s hope standards hold up better than they did when, for example ‘Browns’ tried to pull off a similar trick.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
