The Ivy Collection expands with a new location in Canary Wharf: The Ivy in the Park.

The Ivy is dotted across London, from brasseries in Kensington and Soho to cafés in Wimbledon and St John’s Wood – there’s no denying these highly sophisticated destinations have made their mark in the city. The only thing that was missing from this grand empire was a location in Canary Wharf…

The Spot:

Of course, the team couldn’t have chosen a better spot right in the heart of Canada Square Park (hence the name), an up-and-coming area with shops, bars and endless events. Overlooking London’s lush green space, The Ivy in the Park is divided into a main restaurant and bar, complete with two terraces for those rare sunny days.

The Food:

While continuing their focus on contemporary British cuisine, the Ivy in the Park is ready to suit all your needs: from breakfast and weekend brunch, to elevenses and afternoon tea, to light snacks and cocktails. For dinner, executive chef Sean Burbidge promises to bring all the Ivy classics, including Ivy’s shepherd’s pie, brioche-crumbed chicken Milanese and a must-try melting chocolate bombe.

The Drinks:

The Ivy in the Park offers everything from sparkling wine to ciders and beer, but their cocktails are the real draw. Many are playful takes on classics, such as their espresso Martini made with salted caramel, or the Honeysuckle Daquiri finished with edible flowers and mint. If you’re a fan of G&T’s, take your pick of five varieties.

The Damage:

Mains range from £14 to £29; cocktails are priced at around £8-£12.

In a Nutshell:

Situated in London’s financial hub, The Ivy in the Park is likely to become a popular destination for those who work in the area – we definitely wouldn’t mind having our meetings here.
