Popped into the newly refurbished Ivanhoe for coffee and cake after Sunday Mass. We immediately went to reception to ask where we could have coffee and cake and was told we could head for the bistro. The Initial impression was very good as a lovely lady directed us to our seats and offered us a look at the new menu.... More

The place soon filled up quickly. We were advised about the specials and opted for,soup and sandwiches and panini. The soup was veg soup,... More

I visited the recently refurbished bistro on Saturday for lunch with my 18 month old son and my parents....everything was top notch.. right from the reception we received, the presentation and quality of the food and the service the staff gave us including entertaining my noisy son. I would highly recommend the Ivanhoe and intend to frequent it more often.

After seeing the renovations taking place over number of months, decided to give the Ivanhoe a chance. The renovations are fantastic, a really bright modern airy feel with lovely exposed brickwork. I was very impressed. Sadly this went downhill when I saw menu, it does not reflect the surroundings. Still offering the tired and boring staples...lasagne, burger, scampi, steak, ribs... More

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Belfast, a little out of the main area but easy by bus (directly outside) to get in. Bus driver was amazing, even dropped us at the hotel entrance on return!!! Hotel staff extremely helpful. Didn't eat here so can't comment on food. Room was large, comfortable, clean TV, free wi-fi tea & coffee... More

Decided to have tea out and we thought we would go local. The hotel has recently been refurbished so we were looking forward to seeing the changes! Nice face lift, but sadly there is zero atmosphere,and food was extremely mediorce. As usual no staff in lower bar to serve customers a drink! This is going to be an expensive waste... More

The Ivanhoe has was originally a pub which a number of years ago was extended to become a hotel. It was becoming a 'bit tired' in terms of decor and the food was basic 'pub grub'. With so much competition in recent years we very rarely went there as the other restaurants in the area were more attractive. However, over... More

went for lunch with my mum. Am always impressed at how they do a pensioner lunch at reduced rate. Great value. The food was nice but the batter on the cod was a bit soft and the chips were more end bits than fat chips. I think with the new décor, which is wonderful, the food should reflect that and... More

Been in twice since the renovations of old bar/new bistro has been completed. First time I had chicken Gourgon's Second time opted for Cod - one slight disappointment is the batter.... More
