Food at the Ivy House is very much a hit and miss affair. When it's a hit it's really good, but sadly on our last visit it was definitely a miss. One of our party had the taboulleh salad and really enjoyed it, all good...More

Basically a really good local boozer, first community owned pub in London. A real community hub. Good range of local and national beers, regular beer festivals, frequent gigs and events. Beer garden. Good daytime and evening. Well worth a (frequent) visit!

It's a community pub, has 6/7 real ales and a cider, great selection of "craft" ales, very good food and a laid-back atmosphere. Live music and more. Stunned the average rating is 4.5! It's a 10 in my book.

The Ivy House is London's first co-operatively owned pub, the first pub to be listed as an Asset of Community Value, and the first building in the UK to be bought for the community under the provisions of the Localism Act. It re-opened in August 2013, and is now building a reputation as one of London's finest real ale and craft beer pubs, and as a venue for music and other live events.
