I love dining at the Ivy House. The staff are friendly and helpful (and usually very busy) and the food is very good, and frequently excellent. My last trip was definitely an 'excellent' with an amazing crispy pork belly and black pudding starter. I'll be back...

We were a party of 5 and visited for an evening meal last Friday. Glad that we booked as it was very busy from around 7.00pm onwards. The two waitresses were doubling up as bar-staff and worked incredibly hard, always smiling and incredibly helpful. An absolute pleasure to experience such good service. There is an excellent choice on the menu,... More

A fantastic pub with parking, friendly staff and amazing food! I had the fish finger sandwich which came with chips and salad. All fresh and delicious! I only wish I was greedy enough for dessert as I had food envy when my friend's arrived! Can't wait to come back and eat more in the unique buzzy wonderful pub.

Visited The Ivyhouse in Tonbridge on Thursday and it was heaving. What a lovely buzzing feeling I got when I walked in. I was greeted by friendly staff that took me to my table. I ordered a lovely glass of red wine and had the best fish finger sandwich ever! Freshly made and none of that frozen fish finger in... More

Called in on the off-chance and were very pleased with the choice and quality of the food. Extremely good portions and friendly service. The small child with us was warmly accommodated with her choice of food of a sausage sandwich!! Would definitely go there again.
