GOOD GRUB IN SUNDERLAND

The Ivy House offers a unique blend of old and new, providing a relaxed environment, excellent home made food, comfortable interiors, good beers and wines in a central location.

We make our own dough and bake our own buns. Our pizzas & burgers are as fresh as it gets and all made right in front of you.

We have built our reputation on good quality food, beers and attentive, friendly service whilst still retaining the local pub feel.
In the kitchen we pride ourselves on preparing fresh, locally sourced food and presenting it in an honest but exciting fashion.

The menu is based on classic flavour combinations using modern techniques and is updated to meet seasonal availability.

Eve on Trip Advisor

Good selection of real ales, burgers are excellent and very reasonably priced, all served by friendly and efficient bar staff. Well worth a visit.

Rob Wheeler, Margate

Amazing food, they really do go out of their way to work on the menu and the chef is brilliant. All food is made fresh right where you can see it. Gin drinks are amazing and there is plenty of delicious cocktails. Staff are lovely, live music is brilliant, beer garden is lovely and the non live music is great...
