“Everything in this place is gorgeous – food, décor, service, the people – that’s why it’s one of my favourite places to eat in Bath”
BIG NEWS! The Ivy Brasserie Bath has now opened there second floor private dining area AAAND a fabulous outdoor terrace/secret garden!
I was very lucky to be invited back to The Ivy Brasserie for a delicious preview breakfast. We were invited to take a sneak peek at the NEW private dining area and outdoor terrace.
Private Dining in The Baldwin Room
“Taking its name from architect Thomas Baldwin, the beautiful light and airy space in the heart of Bath will be available for breakfast, lunch, dinner, events, celebrations and informal meetings, seven days a week.”
The walls are adorned with the colourful, Bath inspired artwork which add quirky character to a very glamorous, bright and eclectic space. We sat around a HUGE dining table which was laid out beautifully with bright flowers, dazzling, classic silver wear and adorable little tea stands with breakfast pastries. I felt very glamorous for a Tuesday morning – having a weekday breakfast in a room like this!
This private dining room is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner (see example menus further down).
As much as this room will be used for a lot of corporate events and special occasions it still felt like a relaxed space for more informal occasions too. As I left that morning I was trying to think up ideas to book this room out myself. Maybe a special birthday breakfast in September?
- Perfect for celebrations, private parties, corporate breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
- Accommodates 30 guests on one long table, 40 across four rounds or 70 guests for a standing reception – a minimum booking of 16 guests.
This room has a great view over Milsom Street. I could sit in these gorgeous blue velvet seats, enjoying a fancy cocktail (or a civilised afternoon tea) and sit there for hours watching the world go by.
For the extra special touch, depending on your event, complimentary menu cards and place cards are provided, as well as tables beautifully decorated with local seasonal flowers and tea lights.

Here are a few of the set menus you can choose for your group/event.
It was lovely to have another breakfast at The Ivy Brasserie again. This time I had the Hot Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, lemon balm and a warm strawberry sauce. It was also accompanied with Greek yoghurt, however, I asked if I could change it to Coconut Yoghurt (which was on another dish on the menu). They were more than happy to change that – and might I recommend having the Coconut Yoghurt instead – just adds a bit more sweetness (if you’re a sweet tooth like me).
These pancakes were DE-LICIOUS! Even though I was non-talking with fellow bloggers before we were served breakfast, as soon as breakfast arrived I fell silent. And it wasn’t just me, quite a few of us at my end of the table just stopped talking – surely this is a good sign of great food?! OR are we just really anti-social?! Haha!
Al Fresco Terrace
Shhh! The “secret garden”
Here’s a sneak peek of the outdoor terrace – what I would like to call the SECRET GARDEN OF MILSOM STREET.
Beautiful French style table and chairs, large mirrors all around, making it feel like a larger space, and an old open fireplace to make it feel cosy. I felt like whatever the weather, whether it’s cold or hot, I would want to sit out there and enjoy a late brunch or a cocktail or two.
You don’t have to book a table to visit the upstairs terrace but I would definitely choose a good time to go – this will be a VERY popular spot. Opening at the perfect time now, with the sun making an appearance and the evenings getting slightly warmer, I know where I will be spending weekend brunches and evening cocktails.
Big thank you to Madeleine at CoCo PR and The Ivy Brasserie Bath for inviting me back again. I love my visits to The Ivy Brasserie. It feels like I’m visiting my dream home – ‘DECOR GOALS!’ (Or even ‘wedding décor goals’….. too soon?? Probably. But I’ll keep it in mind 😉 )
Private dining and outdoor terrace opening to the public Monday, 12 March 2018.
