Delicious food, good value, friendly staff

Excellent fish and prawn curry, popadums and rice, perfectly cooked. Flavours authentic.Lemon sorbet just right, not too sweet but tart. Will go back!

I visited the Ivyhouse after researching restaurants on TA, and I'm really glad I did. From the understated yet elegant decor, to the quality of the wine and the friendly staff, we had a great evening. And that's without mentioning how good the food was.. A simply sublime Mediterranean Platter, followed by the best fish and chips I have ever... More

Very good food, cooked fresh and at a good price. Treated by my daughter for Father's day and certainly was a treat. Excellent fish and chips for me and my daughter had a substantial half a chicken. The desserts were super, loved the Lemon posset. It was quite quiet but was a Monday mid day so not really surprising. Would... More

Went here for my girlfriend's mum's birthday. Food and drink were fantastic. Did cater well for a large group. For a Sunday it was a bit quiet but we had a great time. Definitely coming back for the roast.

My boyfriend and I decided to go here for a meal last night and were blown away with how fantastic everything was. The outside area was lovely to sit and drink in, and inside was equally as nice. The food was second to none, could not fault a single dish! All for a fantastic price, and I can guarantee we... More

My boyfriend and I came for lunch on Saturday as a celebratory meal. The food was excellent and just the right size. We had a sharing starter which was a great touch and very well presented. There was only one waiter who was overworked, but still gave excellent service. We will definitely come back again.

Had an amazing meal there last night with friends. Had to wait a while between the starters and main but it was well worth the wait and everything was freshly cooked.

We have visited this restaurant several times and always enjoyed our meals here. Portions are not huge but made up for by quality ingredients prepared on site and worth the slightly longer wait. Nice pint of Harveys beer to complement my food.

I've been a few times, once for dinner, once for wine and nibbles and a few times for a pint or two. It's a great little pub with a good atmosphere and great food. The last time I (almost) went was a disaster however. I called, 10 days in advance to book a table for 8 on a Fri evening.... More

I'm sorry we weren't able to accommodate you and can appreciate your frustration, but after your enquiry we did say we were fully booked for that evening and would take down your contact details and call you should we receive any cancellations or reduction of numbers of any of our other bookings, this unfortunately didn't happen. I remember very well... More
