Summary

The vote remains fairly equally split on Richard Caring’s burgeoning bevy of Ivy spin-offs which are popping up like mushrooms ‘in carefully selected locations’ across the country. (These – the ‘Grills & Brasseries’ are not to be confused with the mere ‘Cafés’, and aim for a more faithful reproduction of the original’s magic). For ‘The Ayes’, they make “a great local addition” providing “great British food in a buzzy setting” (“I keep expecting to be disappointed, and I’m not!”). For ‘The Nays’, “hugely underwhelming food” and “uneven” standards generally make it “feel like they are trying to milk the franchise, but are destroying it in the process”. The most popular is the “ladies-who-lunch” favourite on the King’s Road, whose “garden is to die for” (although “it’s an uphill struggle actually being seated in it”) – a “super, bustling and tastefully decorated venue with fabulous people watching opportunities” (and where the Top Tip is “its great breakfast: it’s much quieter so service is spot on!)”.
