Do you allow dogs in the Ivy House?
Yes, we do allow well behaved dogs but in the bar area only. We will still offer the Restaurant Menu in the Bar so you are not restricted.
Are children welcome?
Yes, children are very welcome at The Ivy House. We have a small children's menu but can offer most dishes on the menu for half the listed price, just ask your server. We are also happy to adapt some dishes to suit our younger diners. We can provide high chairs so please let us know when you book.
Do you have disabled facilities?
Unfortunately not. We have tables in the restaurant with plenty of room inbetween and are more accessible but there are 3 steps to the toilet which are not wheelchair friendly.
Is there parking nearby?
Yes, we have our own car park right next door. There is also an overspill car park behind ours that is pay and display.
Is there overnight parking?
There is no overnight parking available, however, this can be arranged with advance warning. Any cars left in our car park overnight are at their own risk.
Is there a dress code?
No there isn't. Muddy boots are welcome in the Bar but diners might prefer to wear something a little smarter for the Restaurant.
Can you cope with dietary requirements?
Yes we can. We often get asked to cater for specific dietary requirements and many of our dishes can be adapted to suit a gluten or dairy free diet among others. Please let us know in advance and we'll do our best to provide something suitable for you.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Not usually. For functions requiring sole use of the venue we usually do. This may also change for larger parties in the Christmas Season.
Do you have a function room?
No we don't have a function room but we have space to cater to nearly all needs given notice.
Is a service charge added?
Service Charge is never added, we leave it to your discretion.
Can I order a Birthday / Celebration Cake?
Yes you can but please let us know well in advance. Price on allocation. Alternatively, we can always decorate a desert plate with 'Happy Birthday' etc. at no extra cost and are happy to serve your cake too.
Can I arrange balloons, flowers etc?
Yes you can but please bring an extra balloon as the waiters and waitresses get jealous.
