Afternoon Tea Adventures: The Ivy, Bath
I love the food and drink at The Ivy chain of restaurants and have visited a number of them in Kensington, York, Clifton, and Birmingham. The food is always so fresh, cooked well and plated well. I’ve always found the Ivy to be a very relaxed atmosphere and not rowdy which some restaurants can be.
The Ivy Bath Brasserie, like it’s other restaurants, serves a British menu for breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. The restaurant is open seven days a week offering all-day dining to local businesses, residents and visitors alike. There is a roof terrace which is the perfect spot for al fresco dining from the a la carte menu.
The decor at The Bath Ivy was spectacular and opulent as is the case in all of The Ivy venues I have eaten at. Each restaurant is individually decorated and they all give the feel of luxury and relaxation. The Ivy at Bath is decorated with palm trees and the yellow gold and green palm tree themed decor is stunning.
The afternoon tea is served on beautiful white china with a silver teapot, milk jug, sugar bowl, and cutlery. This brings a special and luxury feel to the tea.
The sandwich course consisted of:
- Truffled chicken brioche roll
- Marinated cucumber and dill finger sandwich
- Smoked salmon on dark rye style bread with cream cheese and chives
For the scone course we were served:
- Warm fruited scones with Dorset clotted cream and strawberry preserve
For the sweet course there was:
- Lemon Tart
- Chocolate and salted caramel mousse with chocolate crumb
- Crème brûlée doughnut
The afternoon tea at The Ivy also included a choice of teas, infusions or coffee. I picked the English Breakfast Tea.
Like all of the food I have eaten at The Ivy, this was an amazing afternoon tea and I thoroughly recommend trying it.
Have you ever tried the afternoon tea at The Ivy? I’d love to hear what you thought about it if you have.
