The Ivy House hosted my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party for a group of 30 guests at the end of last year. Throughout the planning the team were always helpful and accommodating. The service on the night was impeccable and the food lovely. Many of the guests commented on both. I would also highly recommend their brunch which we enjoyed... More

Lovely welcoming pub, with plenty of smiley helpful staff. Food was very good. The only suggestion to make is to cater more for kids. We would visit more often if there was a kids menu. Will go back in the summer to enjoy the lovely garden.

Dear Battersea, Thank you for your kind comments and we like to let kids eat the same as adults here at The Ivy House so we offer smaller portion. I do apologise if this was not shared with you. We have also made a kids menu with more appropriate meals on!! We look forward to seeing you over the summer.... More

This pub offers an interesting menu, which is a high gastro pub standard. The bar is mainly filled with tables and chairs. Real fires help to maintain a cosy atmosphere. Accommodation is also available. The staff are very helpful and the service is excellent. Very useful in the area.

I booked for 20 members of our family to meet up just after New Year. We came from all directions and I chose the Ivy House based on location (close to M25), easy parking, family friendly and recommendations on Trip Advisor. They did not disappoint.

A Lovely building and really warm setting. Food is both good quality and value. Couldn't fault the service and would definitely recommend. There is not an actual kids menu but they did provide a kids fish and chips when asked which was great.
