Went for lunch. We ordered 2 open prawn sandwiches WITHOUT CUCUMBER and a portion of chips. The sandwiches seemed to have extra cucumber and the portion of chips were disgraceful for £3. The waiter was lovely and really apologetic but my other half was too embarrassed to send it back. The place its self is lovely but freezing in fact... More

We haven't been to the Ivanhoe in years and we're amazed at how much it has changed having been more or less completely refurbished. They've done a very good job. We were attending a Halloween event at the hotel with our grandchildren and having arrived early we decided to have a drink in the bar. Feeling a bit peckish I... More

The Service was slow, even on a quiet evening, and none of the staff looked very happy to be there, which wasn't very welcoming, however, the food was thoroughly enjoyed by me and my partner. I will be back to enjoy the food!
