The Ivy house is a small T shaped pub with six or seven tables to the right of the entrance and another four in a bar area to the left. Over half of these tables were reserved and I would have thought that diners take precedence over drinkers so I wouldn’t expect to get a seat during dining times if going here only for a pint. I didn’t see a full menu, but the mains on a chalkboard started at £13. The small bar area is located down a couple of steps where cask Harvey’s Best was available alongside a premium keg range.

There is no television and there was no background music playing during my early Friday evening visit. I didn’t spot any upcoming events which wasn’t a surprise because this is very much a food led pub. One suspects that this is an old pub because anyone approaching six foot should mind their head in and around the toilets. Out the front are a few picnic tables and another couple can be found at the rear.

I found the barman to be very friendly, but this is not my sort of pub so I will leave it to the diners in future.

Bar staff rather dim but friendly. they forgot about your drinks order. But the food was excellent! I had the rump roast and my friends had scampi, burgers etc. it was the best Sunday roast ive had in a long time! Would totally recommend this pub for food!

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ivy House

Interesting old pub, with various ups and downs over the years. However, despite now proclaiming itself to be a "Dining Room & Bar", the cramped twin-bar layout remains despite the partial gastro-pub makeover. Most of the solid modern tables are set out for dining, leaving just a few seats for drinkers inside (plus the tables in the small front patio beer garden and another little area at the back). Two real ales on handpump: the ubiquitous Harveys plus Doom Bar (£3.25, and served in the right glass).
