The Tug of War - Brexit Negotiations should have progressed this way !

The Tug of War - Harding Cox
The Tug of War - This Satirical Engraving which is hand coloured is very of the moment, bearing in mind the Brexit negotiations. Harding Cox (English) painted the original and Mansell of London produced the engravings in 1899. The caption reads "two skinny Frenchmen one portugee, one jolly Englishman cam lick em all three". The engraving comes framed and would make the perfect gift for the Dog lover in your life and also any Brexiteer you happen to know. #brexit #empire #engraving#hardingcox Read more here

This makes for interesting reading. We took the Restaurants of The Ivy Collection and added the percentages of Average - Poor and Terrible from Tripadvisor data and created a percentage of their total reviews. We were prompted to do this as we refer a lot of our clients to restaurants in Dublin and had many reports from clients that the Ivy Dublin did not live up to the standards of the sister restaurants in the UK (Manchester is not open and Canary Wharf has just opened so they are not included). The data is totally from Tripadvisor and no other website. Dublin is lucky to have so many great restaurants and we will continue to be democratic about our restaurant referral policy but we would hope that this chart will change soon and The Ivy Dawson Street in Dublin will move up the ranking. The building and restaurant are really quite nice so it is a large pity that the restaurant's feedback appears to be so negative compared to its sister restaurants.
