Fantastic food, great range of drinks. Choice of music is sure to appeal to everyone and regular live bands are always welcome. Staff are always incredibly friendly and are sure to give a prompt service. Would highly recommend this bar for a great night out.

Great atmosphere and delicious food made from scratch - what more could you want? Staff are friendly, they always have a great selection of beers and the entire place is just fantastic. We go in pretty often now, it's fast becoming our favourite pub!

This place has had a refurb and is a very comfortable pub, it used to get some very "choice" people in in the past but that's all changed, we went for tea and took our 4 month old son, it was great as we sat...More

I have been going to the Ivy since I was 17 back in the 80s and until last September it hadn't changed, which is why I stopped going. After the revamp it is easily the best pub in town. The pizzas and burgers are all...More

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
