As the coronation of King Charles III approaches, The Ivy West Street welcomes you to indulge in a royal experience.
Established in 1917, this London restaurant promises to treat you like royalty, from its majestic decor to its bespoke menu additions.
To commemorate the event, The Ivy West Street is putting up a floral installation on its facade, which depicts beautiful crowns and a giant lion’s head, fitting for the occasion. This installation is a perfect photo opportunity for both guests and passers-by.
The King’s Lemon Posset
The Ivy West Street’s experienced kitchen team has created a limited-edition dessert, the King’s Lemon Posset (£10.95), which includes strawberry jelly, lemon sorbet, shortbread, and adorned with flowers. It is a perfect way to end a regal meal. This special dish will be available from 24 April to 14 May.
The Ivy West Street’s expert mixologists have collaborated with Beefeater Gin and Nyetimber to create a limited-edition cocktail menu to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Beefeater cocktails include The King’s Martini (£30), made with Beefeater’s Crown Jewel, boasting refreshing grapefruit flavours, encapsulating the iconic jewels housed in the Tower of London.
The first 25 guests who order this between 2nd – 9th May will also get to take home the iconic martini glass with the purchase of this cocktail. Other options on the menu include a revitalising Apple and Jasmine Martini (£12) and an elegant Queen Gin and Tonic Spritz (£12).
Extended Offering of Nyetimber English Sparkling Wines
An extended offering of Nyetimber English Sparkling Wines will also be available, including Nyetimber Classic Cuvee MV (£16.00/ £95), Nyetimber Cuvee Chérie MV (£16.50/£98), Nyetimber Rosé MV (£18/£105), and Nyetimber 1086 Prestige Cuvee MV (£180).
About The Ivy West Street
The Ivy West Street has been serving up British classics to regular guests since 1917. It also has royal connections, with the late Queen Elizabeth II dining at the restaurant in 2017.
Martin Brudnizki Design Studio refurbished the restaurant, bar, and private room to create a spacious entrance, a central dining bar that has become the focal point of the restaurant, and a vastly superior cloakroom.
Ivy classics still feature, but the menu has been updated to cater to people’s changing taste, including a more prominent Asian section, prolific salads and vegetables, and a section for fish and shellfish lovers.
Location and Opening Times
The Ivy West Street is located at 1-5 West Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9NQ. The restaurant is open from midday to 11 pm, Monday to Friday, from 11:30 am to 11 pm on Saturday, and from 11:30 am to 10:30 pm on Sunday. Reservations are not always required for the central dining bar.
About Nyetimber and Beefeater
Nyetimber is the pioneer of English Sparkling Wine and is made exclusively from three celebrated grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. It is regarded as England’s finest Sparkling Wine and is made from one hundred percent estate-grown grapes.
Beefeater is the world’s most awarded gin brand, created by James Burrough in the 19th century and distilled in the heart of London.
Beefeater’s Master Distiller, Desmond Payne, has over 50 years of experience in the gin industry and has been with Beefeater since 1995. Payne ensures that the traditional Beefeater gin recipe is followed meticulously to create the signature juniper-led, citrusy flavour that gin lovers around the world have come to know and love.
The Ivy West Street’s collaboration with Beefeater Gin for the King Charles III Coronation celebration is the perfect example of how the restaurant incorporates the best of British produce and heritage into its menu and drinks offerings.
