Ivy Bar Glasgow

Location wise the Ivy is a dream. It's close enough to walk to from Kelvingrove Park, and it’s surrounded by great pubs to spend summer afternoons in.

Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted receptively by the bar staff and told to sit down, they brought over our drinks and gave us menus to browse whilst we awaited our friends.

I was pleased to read on the menu that most of their food is sourced from local suppliers, and that they work using fresh produce.

When our friends arrived we were guided through to the restaurant area, which was modern yet eclectic, and the background music came in the form of Pink Floyds ‘Dark side of the Moon’.

All of our party ordered different burgers from the menu and not one of us was disappointed, the fries were freshly made and the burger buns were more like soft fresh ciabatta bread which was a welcome change. There was a delicious, fresh rocket based side salad with each, with an unusual, yet tasty tomato based dressing. The portions were sizeable, but not too much that we were left feeling stuffed. We also ordered olives, bread and oil & vinegar for the table, and were presented with a selection of the freshly baked white and wholemeal bread which the menu stated was delivered daily from the Seb and Mills café down the road. The service overall was attentive but unobtrusive.

For four of us ordering drinks including soft drinks, beers, wines and tea, four mains, bread and olives came to under £60 so was incredible value for money, and I highly recommend it for a relaxed weekend lunch.
