I booked a table for ten walkers at the Ivy House but, a couple of days before we went, increased it to 16. There was no problem with this and the friendly staff took everything in their stride, including two more people and a baby who joined us the last minute. We had pre-ordered but the waitress double-checked our orders... More

I always wonder why people find it so hard, but they appear to. Good home cooked food (it really is), a short sensible menu to suit all tastes, a friendly smile, efficient service, homely atmosphere and a decent pint- doesn't sound hard does it? The Ivy house has changed so many times, but at last a landlord who understands how... More

What a joy to stay in such a clean welcoming establishment. The staff and owner were so attentive and went the extra mile to accommodate our every need. The food was extremely good especially the Sunday roast. The prices were very reasonable and bettered one of the larger chains that we used to stay with.

We needed a quick stay over as we were picking up a new car from Amersham ,and as we didn't want to go home to Rutland so soon, we decided on a night stop.

I came in last night with my partner and just had to remark on the wonderful service we received. I ordered the sirloin steak which was cooked to perfection and my husband had the lamb rump that we both really enjoyed. However the real stars of tonight were the staff members serving us, Natalie(think she was the one in charge)... More

Staff here are very friendly with a personalised check in service, and the morning breakfast is very lovely. My room was well appointed with a comfortable bed and the shower had excellent water pressure. Only downside is the locale's proximity to the road - could be noisy in summertime if you need the windows open.

Thank you for taking the time to comment and for your kind words. We will be looking at ways of managing the noise as I agree the road is busy so it is important for us to find a solution. Yours sincerely Alfie More
