Quite a nice little pub with a dark atmosphere, food at one end, drinks at the other. Food was average but drinks quite pricey for a local pub.

I pride myself in my ability to gorge myself on spicy food. I chose the "Juarez" pizza and asked for it to have the extra hot option. They warned me it would be hot - I didn't listen. The pizza was flavoursome, filling and hot....More

Vegetarian options are limited unless you want your food laced with strong cheese or pesto. Goats cheese and caramelised onion pizza has been taken off the menu and there wasn't enough goats cheese to make one as a one off. Ordered a flat bread and...More

Found this little gem on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed this food was all freshly cooked. Very tasty and excellent value for money. Slightly out of the centre but worth the walk. Definitely recommend and would come back. Tasty Burgers and divine stew.

Description
At the Ivy House we do things a little differently. For us its all about choice. Yes, we sell Fosters, John Smiths and Smirnoff but we also sell Brooklyn, an eclectic range of cask and craft beers and a diverse choice of spirits. We want you to enjoy a comfortable vibe where you can listen to good tunes & feel relaxed. We don't have a microwave, not one. We don't do frozen, all our food including our own buns. Our pizza's & burgers are as fresh as it gets and all made right in front of you. Come in & see for yourself
