Review on The Ivy Cafe Blackheath

The affluent village of Blackheath in South East London is where the latest instalment of Caprice Holdings, popular brand The Ivy Cafe launched in January 2018. Formerly housing Chapters Restaurant, it has been been given a luxurious refurbishment by the critically-acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Overlooking the heath, it has windows designed to fold back in summer months and a Parisian-style terrace seating twenty, with views of the picturesque All Saints Church dating back to 1857. The dining room is a vibrant affair with luxurious leather furnishings and fittings, walls are decorated with bevelled mirrors and bespoke artwork reflect the area's heritage.

The kitchen under Executive Chef Sean Burbridge pays homage to all things British with a range of menus and eating opportunities that kicks off with breakfast and works its way through elevenses, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks, dinner and cocktails. Among the starters look for duck liver parfait, caramelized hazelnuts, truffle and tamarind glaze before moving on to main courses in the shape of salmon and smoked haddock fish cake, spinach and herb sauce with a soft poached hen's egg and baby watercress or a fragrant coconut duck curry with lemongrass, lime, chilli, roasted cashews and steamed jasmine rice. Desserts offer plenty of lovely choices with a vanilla ice cream with meringue, pistachio, shortbread and a warm cherry sauce or maybe a melting chocolate bombe with a vanilla ice cream and honeycomb centre with hot salted caramel sauce.

The wine list encompasses all the major wine growing vintners with options available by the glass and tasty cocktails such as The Ivy Café Royale, Hibiscus gin, sloe infusion, rose water and Cremant.
