The Ivy Marlow Garden

The Ivy Marlow Garden gave us a sophisticated start to our day

Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal isn’t it? There is no way we could contemplate a busy working day without eating something; we just couldn’t function properly, and we know that we wouldn’t give our best service.

With this in mind, we headed to The Ivy Marlow Garden to sample their breakfast delights. We’ve eaten afternoon tea and dinner here before, but never breakfast.

The restaurant wasn’t overly busy when we arrived so we were able to have a good look around. The décor takes you back to a time of opulence and beauty, with stunning prints on the walls, colourful comfy seating, huge plants and very clever lighting. It’s all very exotic and sumptuous and we loved it! Were we really in Marlow High Street? The atrium lets in that all important light (especially at this time of year) whilst the conservatory to the rear really is an inside outside space with pot plants galore; right up our street.

Choosing the vegetarian full English and the fluffy pancakes with yoghurt and berry compote, we were soon tucking into delicious fayre. Our tea was served in timeless silver teapots with tableware to match the décor of a bygone era, where elegance and sophistication was the order of the day. Yes, this really was a breakfast extravaganza, but at an affordable price.

The Ivy Marlow Garden describes itself as “Relaxed yet sophisticated dining in the heart of Marlow. Open seven days a week offering all-day dining to local businesses, residents and visitors alike. As with its sister sites, The Ivy Marlow Garden serves an all-encompassing, contemporary British menu for breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks, cocktails and dinner”.

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
