Situated at the back of the main restaurant, The Buttercross Room at The Ivy Winchester is a welcome refuge from the busy thrum of the High Street. The connection to the city’s medieval heritage is key to the space – its walls are adorned with colourful vintage prints inspired by local history and topography. There’s a subtle nod to Winchester’s famous Cathedral, too. Its flooring provides inspiration for the ingenious metallic gold tiles that clad the room’s ceiling. Meanwhile, the wooden floor, vintage dining chairs and antique mirror panels bring timeless style and classic cool.
