Set in a grand Grade II listed building on King’s Road, The Ivy Chelsea Garden makes the most welcoming winter retreat. Open all day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, the venue ticks the box for those wanting to celebrate the Christmas season over a delicious meal. Anticipate modern British and international dishes, and a cocktail list that serves up classic and forward-thinking concoctions. Courtesy of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, a distinctly British character weaves its way throughout the bar, lounge, café, restaurant, orangery and terrace. Vintage finds are mixed with luxurious touches to create relaxed yet sophisticated surroundings. And the stunning gardens – designed by Cameron Landscapes and Gardens for this winter – are complete with a fireplace and covered outdoor area. Artfully scattered evergreen plants, which thrive in temperature change, connect the interior and exterior, offering texture and lush varying tones of green. Could you think of anywhere better to snuggle up on a chilly December eve?
