Description: The Ivanhoe Hotel, a much-loved local pub, is located in the heart of The Corso in Manly on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Offering a refreshing, timeless and sophisticated setting, The Ivanhoe Hotel has a strong emphasis on food, quality and produce. Behind the magnificent heritage facade, The Ivanhoe Hotel's interiors channel a Hamptons-inspired coastal beach vibe while retaining the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere of Manly and a local pub. Boasting 16 indoor and outdoor, relaxed all-weather spaces over three floors, including two of Sydney's most impressive rooftop bars, The Ivanhoe Hotel's spaces are perfect for lunch, dinner, drinks or a night out on the town. The variety of different areas throughout the pub allow guests to tailor their own experiences; whether it is casual large lunches with the whole family, afternoon cocktails in the sun with friends in one of the open-air courtyards, quiet corners for a quick bite to eat or late night celebrations in the surf clubhouse-style second floor bar and open-air rooftop, The Pines. These spaces are also perfect function spots for intimate groups right up to large events of 900 guests. The Ivanhoe Hotel is also home to a boutique bottle shop as well as a dedicated sports bar, situated next door to the main pub, offering one of Sydney's best venues for watching sport with full TAB facilities.

“Poor customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

I came to the Ivanhoe with four friends, it was 8:50 so we had to order from the late night menu. One of the guests ordered a burger with chips and pizza. 15 minutes later one of the bar staff came over and said we have closed the grill and are only serving pizza even though the menu stated burgers and pizzas till 11pm. He then said I can give you a small pizza or you will have to pay for a medium or a large, even though it was their mistake and had been a substantial amount of time before they came over to notify about their grill being closed.
So after paying the difference we had to wait another 20 minutes after our other two friends meals came out because of their mistake. The pizzas were not very good at all. None of us will be back.

“Takeaway with style and great flavour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

After checking out the offerings along the Corso and wanting something more than a burger in keeping with the holiday theme I chose a Moroccan lamb pizza (also available in a burger), chips (seasoned nicely) and a green salad. It was so good I made a special trip another day just to have it again. The other offerings were also intriguing ... maybe next time! Takeaway was significantly cheaper than eating in.

“A cut above the others”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

I love this hotel, tastefully restored, plantation style ambience. Sitting above the Corso, away from the push and crush which is Manly. The food is fresh and plentiful. We shared pizzas, a good selection of toppings.

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

The food was fresh, good quality & huge serves.
The kids had a chicken wrap - it was amazing, toasted Ham & cheese, yum, margarita pizza fabulous & chicken parmigiana, huge & yum
We had the seafood platter it was huge, the prawns & oysters were fantastic & fresh, the scallops were overcooked but tasty, the lobster had been frozen but was still tasty, the salt & pepper calamari was yum but the soft she'll crab was disappointing as the oilwant hot enough when it cooked
Would definitely go back

“great food reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

This hotel was refurbished about 1 year ago and is very modern. The food is top quality at a reasonable price. It has a variety to suit any taste wether you want a snack or a good meal . They have daily specials and we had the Friday special of grilled Salmon with a glass of wine or beer for $25. A little overcooked for our taste however very nice. We sat out on the first floor veranda and watched the world walk by. The hotel is well located in the centre of the pedestrian mall between the ferry and the surf beach. We will definitely visit there again when we do the Spit to Manly walk.
