“The only pub worth visiting in Newcastle Emlyn”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Though this pub is owned by Punch Taverns they have not spoilt the interior. Always two real ales & a large selection of other drinks. It is a drinkers pub with lots of atmosphere. They do not serve food but have filled rolls available on the bar. It is not a pub to take children, in fact children are not welcome. The landlord may seem abrupt but it iall show, he can be very accommodating, unless you upset him.

“Great Pub”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Great pub, friendly staff, lovely log fire on the go....most importantly great beer! can't wait to go back! (as prev reviewer stated have to agree with him about the idiot that thinks it's ok to use a private car park to buy chips and eat them...without entering the pub or making a purchase)

“Excellent local pub for good beer, good food and sociability.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Actually despite the previous reviewers remarks this is a friendly local pub. It serves excellent food and very good beers.. It is sociable and friendly.with a lovely log fire in winter.
I must take issue with the previous reviewer. Newcastle Emlyn is a busy market town and the Ivy Bush is at the junction of the two main roads into town. Its car park (in a town where parking is at a premium) has room for only four cars.I think it is the height of rudeness and ill manners to park in a small pub car park, go and get chips(when the pub itself serves food) and then go and sit in the car to eat the chips.Why not buy a drink at the pub and eat the chips outside? No wonder they were chased off!!! Surely the polite and proper thing to do was ask the landlords permission and inform him of their intentions.
I thought this was a review of pubs etc - not their car parks and their misuse .
I recommend this pub to anyone visiting Emlyn because of its atmosphere (it does not have sports tv which adds to the ambience) and its food.
