Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 25 October 2023 via mobile

Came to Brough for a meeting, unfortunately that venue’s kitchen was closed for the day due to bereavement. Stumbled across the Ibar; small size and not a large menu, but varied and mid priced. Prompt friendly service, had the fish n chip platter, well presented,...a bit heavy on the batter but overall tasty and reasonable value. Can’t understand some of the reviews….the waitress and the chef were spot on professional, and the vibe from what I assume to be regulars was friendly. Not the best I’ve ever been to, but for a small place like Brough the Ibar, in my experience, punches well above its weight, give it a try.More

Been in for food and drinks countless times in the past, but never thought to review because it seems that the only people that review are the ones who have something to complain about. the burgers and the pesto parm chicken (i think its called)...are superb, got to remember its not a restaurant, so may not be waited on hand and foot if its really really busy but thats fine, its not restaurant prices either its good value and i doubt there is anything better available in Brough or nearby will continue to go, always end up in there if I'm out with friends for drinks, they play good music and the vibe is great overall Also we see the owner most times i go, always very hospitable and makes us feel welcome, very witty guy actually really like the place, no discrimination, good for people of all agesMore

So a minor age girl went to the toilet without asking because she really needed the toilet and the Barman or manger (not quite sure which one) proceeded to follow her out of the bar she put a thumbs up to her friends to say...that they can go now and then he proceeds yell at her saying “next time can you asked to use my facilities and don’t put your thumbs up and take the piss out of it” (I won’t be a next time for us because we are refusing to go again). First yelling at a minor is inappropriate second of all we do understand a point but yelling at a minor and the word he use and the way he said it was inappropriate. We suggest to not go there because the way you get treated is highly inappropriate and we are not the first people to encounter the manager/Barman bad Service skills and rudeness.More

Well you are slightly correct. I asked the young person it is polite to ask to use our facilities. Manners don’t cost anything and all would of been fine. I do blame the upbringing as the young person has obviously not been shown manners. Even...More

Pre COVID I'd have strongly urged anyone to avoid this place. Poor food, poor choice of drinks, tiny space and serious breaches in terms of their alcohol licence servicing extremely drunk people. As of April 2021 it seems they are going one better and having...Covid spreading parties with 40-50 people packed under a few cheap outdoor tents! The sooner this place is shut down the better!More

An absolute dump of a Bar, and I use the term Bar very loosely. I witnessed a complete disregard for social distancing, allowing groups far more than 6 in together. During lockdown earlier this year, they were opening to customers, when of course they were...not supposed to be open at all. The owners should be ashamed of themselves, I would recommend not reopening after lockdown... As it is owners like this who cause the unnecessary spread of COVID with their irresponsible attitude towards the virus.More

This place is dump. There’s not many alternatives nearby though so I imagine they organically get business.

We had a booking today, as soon as we sat down outside a staff member came over, asked for the booking name and we were told to leave with no prior warning or reason because someone who was already in the premises had a problem...with who I was with. This is highly unprofessional, unreasonable and a disgusting attitude to have for a booked paying customer. You are meant to be running a business not a personal home bar. Do not recommend. I won’t be visiting again.More

Visited with my partner for a beer last weekend. The place was busy, with drunk, many clearly underage, kids, and middle aged drunks. As the evening wore on, the atmosphere started to get a bit threatening, ending with a fight, Police, and an ambulance. To...be honest, the place badly needs sorting out, before something more serious occurs, or it loses its licence.More

Lovely lunch. We both had burgers and they were cooked perfectly. The owner went the extra mile by giving our baby a snack to keep her occupied while we ate.

A total surprise, never thought a smallish village would have such a “Go too Place”. Small and compact, but the people, beer and food are real value for money. Will call in again.

Went in for a drink tonight only to be greeted on the door by an extremely drunk man who attempted to throw us out telling us to "f" off. The owner appeared and shrugged his shoulders and sided with the drunk man so we left...to avoid an altercation. Will not return and suggest people avoid this place if you value your safety.More
