Service And Style Returns To Leeds As The Ivy Re-opens

The Ivy Victoria Quarter has announced it will be re-opening its doors in the heart of Leeds on Saturday, 4 July.

Offering the ultimate dining experience in a beautiful yet safe environment, diners can look forward to a host of exciting, creative cocktails and delicious dishes once more, all set against a backdrop of tranquil surroundings, vibrant fabrics and greenery.

If you have ever been you will know that the service is second to none. The Lockdown will mean that many planned trips to the restaurant had to be postponed. I was due to take my sister for a birthday meal at The Ivy at the end of March, but as they say, it is better late than never.

Whilst service will still remain a priority, the restaurant will be implementing the highest standards of health and safety, ensuring both guests and employees will be dining and working in confidence and in a safe environment.

Measures will include thermal cameras for temperature checks, the use of tracking software for all employees logging daily temperature readings over a seven day rolling period, and professional deep cleaning and disinfecting on a daily basis. Air filtration units have also been fitted (99% effective in killing the MRSA and H1N1 viruses, which are part of the same RNA Coronavirus family) and dedicated members of staff have been appointed to ensure that health and safety is at its highest standard on an on-going basis.

Rob Hynes, General Manager of The Ivy Victoria Quarter says:
“I myself and all of the staff are extremely excited to be opening once again on Saturday, 4 July. We can’t wait to welcome back our regular guests and members of the community who we have greatly missed over the last few months. The team are also looking forward to being united again on the restaurant floor and in the kitchen, whilst maintaining a safe distance at all times.”
