I have now been to the Ivy Twice, Once for dinner and again for afternoon tea.

Both were perfect, dinner was delicious and every single thing on the afternoon tea menu was superb and prices are great for the quality of the food. You are greeted kindly upon arrival and are well looked after. It's an experience not just dinner.

They do add the service charge on the end of the bill which makes you feel like you don't 'need' to tip, it would be nice to leave this up to the customer.

The Ivy which is based on Trinity Street is simply beautiful inside. It has a colonial glory feel to it. The bar is stunning with its overhead glass holder and seating. We were quickly shown to our seats by the greeting staff who are all smartly dressed. For too long Cambridge has had a great level of middle restaurants like Chop House, Smokeworks and De Luca's but the top end has been sadly lacking. The Ivy finally does this with top level food and service but at a decent price, not the eye watering ones Cambridge seemed doomed to endure.
The signature Shepherd pie was everything we hoped, the steak was beautifully cooked and such good quality.
The desserts were on another level.
Cannot recommend highly enough - go for yourself and just see.

Gorgeous stylish surroundings, nice music, comfortable seating and very good service. I’d recommend a visit. The only reason I’ve dropped a star is that, although the food was good, it’s difficult not to compare it unfavourably with the excellence of Trinity’s fabulous cuisine, as the restaurants are next-door neighbours on Trinity Street.

Had to try the famous name - although we have never been to its London parent. Massive menu which is sometimes a bit worrying and told fish & chips, lobster & ribeye not available. Delightful and efficient Spanish waitress served a fantastic meal of scallops and prawn cocktail followed by lamb and blackened cod. We were both sooper impressed by the presentation and quality of the food. Would we go back - oh yes - cannot wait as it was sooper dooper indeed.
