First look inside the brand new The Ivy in Chichester
THESE images reveal the first glimpse of a brand new restaurant branch set to open next week.
The Ivy Collection launches in Chichester on June 21, with reservations available now.
To celebrate the opening, the Ivy Chichester Brewery has released photos from inside the restaurant.
Critically acclaimed design studio Martin Brudnizki consulted on the brewery’s interiors, similar to sister sites of The Ivy Collection.
Inside, the building follows the chain’s classic style with bold colors and floral patterns in wallpaper and fixtures.
There is a central drinks bar covered in mirrored tiles, giving the restaurant a chic and elegant feel.
All around there are plants and greenery, as well as artwork connecting the room – mirroring the style of their other branches as well.
The colorful artwork is inspired by the region, and the floral designs were selected by art consultant Adam Ellis.
A particularly striking part of the restaurant is the large glass ceiling, effortlessly illuminating the room.
The restaurant will be located on East Street and will seat up to 142 people, with all-day dining.
The new brewery will be close to Chichester Cathedral, famous for its stained glass windows and modern art.
The Ivy will serve modern British classics, including breakfast, coffees, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and cocktails.
Its menus will include a selection of seasonal dishes, including crispy duck salad with a five-spice vinaigrette, roasted cashews, watermelon, bean sprouts, sesame seeds, coriander and ginger, The Ivy’s Shepherd’s Pie and Smoked Salmon and Haddock Fishcake with a Smashed Pea and Herb Sauce. and a soft poached egg.
Desserts will include creme brulee, thin apple pie and chocolate bomb.
General Manager Barnaby Harris-Reid will oversee the restaurant while Executive Chef Arnold Ivey will be in charge of the kitchen.
Barnaby Harris-Reid said: “We are delighted to bring The Ivy Collection to Chichester.
“The city is internationally recognized for its historic cathedral, culture and stunning scenery, and the team and I are delighted to welcome residents and visitors to Chichester this spring once we open our doors.”
