Fire crews from across Greater Manchester attended the blaze, but Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue announced the fire had been extinguished shortly before 6.30pm.

The fire was discovered shortly after 5pm on Friday night. Staff and dinners were evacuated but huge flames could be seen pouring out of the roof terrace.

Restaurant owners said the roof terrace will remain closed for repairs until February but have confirmed bookings at all other areas of the restaurant will be honoured. They have also announced plans to host a ‘super party’ in April.

The statement said:

“Thank you for all your kind messages of support regarding yesterday’s unfortunate fire at The Ivy Spinningfields.

“The fire was contained in one section of The Roof Garden thanks to the excellent work of the Greater Manchester Fire Services who have informed us that the building is now totally safe to occupy.

“While work starts to refurbish and repair any damage done to The Roof Garden, the ground floor Ivy Brasserie and Ivy Asia on the second floor are completely unaffected by the fire and will continue to operate as usual.

“All reservations will be honoured, we are planning to reopen The Roof Garden on the top floor towards the end of February and will, of course, notify everyone as soon as the date is ‘solid’.”
