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

In a world where pubs come in pre packaged corporate cliches where every menu is the same and cheap curry is served on a thursday the Ivy house is a breath of fresh air. The food is freshly prepared in the open kitchen and has a selection that provides many surprises. A great selection of international beers and spirits means that you don't have to have the same drink twice. The atmosphere is great and an open fire makes it warm and welcoming in the winter months. The staff are great and they even allow wizards to do their magic every Thursday! No discrimination here.

I can only recommend my favourite north eastern drinking establishment, and long may it reign.

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!
