The Ivy restaurants are surely getting more and more popular in London and it really doesn’t surprise me!
With their amazing signature art deco interiors and unbeatable locations throughout London they are surely places you want to check out.
We often go to the Ivy Chelsea Garden as that’s the closest to us and it offers an amazing garden which is open all year round: a little oasis in the vibrant King’s Road.
This time we ventured South East and enjoyed a yummy brunch with a spectacular view of one of the most famous landmarks of London: the majestic Tower Bridge.
We arrived nice and early so we could enjoy some peace and quiet as the Ivy restaurants tend to get very busy at peak times. We are taking full advantage of two tiny human alarm clocks that seem to go off at the same early hours each day (even earlier on weekends it seems).
I went for the hot buttermilk pancakes: served with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, Greek yoghurt, a hint of lemon balm and a warm strawberry sauce. Doesn’t that sound delicious? I assure you they were. Also Catherine went for those but she couldn’t finish them as the portions are very generous. Lesson learnt and no more adult sized dishes for her! Charles tried the Full English which consists of: Smoked streaky bacon, Cumberland herbed sausage, fried hen’s eggs, black pudding, roast plum tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, baked beans and toast; that will surely fill you up haha!
The food is good, prices are reasonable for London and the staff was very kind to us.
The Ivy Tower Bridge is huge, has a pretty dehors for warmer days, boasts two floors of exquisite interiors and, from the top one you’ll have the best view ever!
So, to the point: I would surely recommend the Ivy and its Instagrammable food/interiors. Plus it is the perfect spot for a walk along the Thames afterwards to burn all those calories!
