4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Fish and chips highly recommended. Pleasant service and modest prices, next to the harbour. Good afternoon stop.

“Easily Overlooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Wanting no more than a light snack rather than a heavy lunch, we chanced upon the Ivy House.

Not the cheapest place in Scarborough, but the quality of the food, and the friendly efficiency of the staff made it a superb choice for a relaxing and delicious snack lunch.

I understand this place also offers accommodation, and can’t comment on this; but drop by for a bite to eat like we did and you won’t be disappointed.

“Fish supper......but not super.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

We called here last night after a pleasant walk around the harbour. The exterior was very inviting and we were not disappointed by the internal decor which was modern but very comfortable....great chairs. Our order was taken promptly and delivered in good time, although they didn't have any of my first choice left, must have been a busy day, so we both ended up with a fish supper. Overall the meal was ok but the fish was a little soggy and a little greasy.....great mushy peas though. oh and my partner commented that the draught lager wasnt very good.

Overall ok, it filled a hole, but we've had better.
