The hotly anticipated Ivy Brasserie is about to open its doors, so we took a sneak peak inside to find out what you can expect.

Launched by the owners of the iconic Ivy in Covent Garden, the stylish restaurant is set to open on Tuesday, August 21 in London Street in the former home of Gap.

Inspired by the long-standing celebrity haunt in the capital, Ivy Brasserie has opened in locations across the UK including Bristol, Cambridge and Cheltenham.

The Ivy Norwich Brasserie claims to offer an elegant dining destination in the heart of the city centre, serving classic bistro food and also afternoon tea and breakfast.

The brasserie will accommodate for up to 149 guests across the main restaurant, bar and terrace and will hold back a number of tables each day for walk-ins.
