Cocktails, souffle and game on Autumn menu
Toffee Apple flavoured Martini and a gooey double-baked cheese soufflé are among the Autumnal highlights at the decadent Ivy restaurant that take inspiration from Halloween and Bonfire Night.

There's still the same touch of glamour to The Ivy Birmingham in Temple Row - even during the Covid era. Diners have been spaced out and there's fragrant hand sanitizer on each table, but the fine dining restaurant hasn't lost its atmosphere.

Celebrating all things Autumn are some of the specials, including new limited edition cocktails that are available until October 31.

I never understood the appeal of toffee apples, until I tried The Ivy's Toffee Apple Martini. This refreshing tipple, which costs £8.75, is an ideal mix of Bacardi spiced rum, Calvados liqueur and apple juice. There's also caramel sauce rubbed around the rim of the glass menacingly to give both a sweet tantalising taste and a touch of gothic Halloween drama to the drink.

Another seasonal cocktail is The Pumpkin Spiced Latte at £8.50 that combines Bacardi spiced rum, Monin pumpkin spice syrup, a splash of almond milk, and a toasted marshmallow.

For those with a sweet tooth, the brasserie has been inspired by Halloween for its dessert The Poison Apple. Only available until October 31, the pudding is made of apple parfait, chocolate brownie, candy floss mist and a rich blackberry sauce. It costs £7.95.

As the weather turns cold, the menu incorporates more warming dishes. There's still the regular favourites like steaks, fishcakes and scallops but also hearty offerings like Grouse Shepherd's Pie and Double Baked Cheese Soufflé.

Gooey and delicious Double-Baked Cheese Soufflé

The large cheese soufflé, priced at £7.95, comes bubbling and gooey, topped with grated black truffle. It's so delicious, you'll be scraping around the edges to get every last mouthful of this starter.

When it comes to the mains, the Grouse Shepherd's Pie offers a twist on the well-known classic at £21.95. There's carrot mash, a smooth juniper berry sauce and brioche bread sauce accompanying the base of roasted grouse. Precariously balanced on top. Are "game chips" - similar to meaty flavoured crinkled crisps.

Autumn may bring a dip in the weather but it also welcomes in a host of flavours and specials at The Ivy that embrace both Halloween and Bonfire Night.
