Was visiting my in laws in Sunderland with my mate and on the last day, stopped into The Ivy House for an early dinner before our flight. My in laws live a short distance away and I was surprised when they said this establishment allows dogs! So they brought their dog along and we ordered 3 burgers and a curry. One burger was mistakenly brought out with chicken rather than beef but straight away the lovely waitress fessed up to the kitchens error and said we could keep the incorrect order and they would also bring out the correct order! Then I went to buy 2 beers and a juice at the bar and as it was happy hour, got to press this red buzzer which skipped through options on a screen which would say how much I would pay for the drinks. To my surprise, it landed on 'free' so I got the entire round for free! The food came out and it was all lovely, especially the wedges served with the burgers. They even gave my friend another free juice because of the error with her burger order. All in all, a great experience, friendly staff, great tunes playing in the background and dog friendly. It's a shame I live in Australia as I would make this my local!! Thanks again
