Another great Sunday lunch at The Ivy House. Their nut roast dinner is lovely. The carrot and coriander soup was legendary, nice touch with the croutons. All the accompanying veg hits the spot too. Keep up the good work guys! See you soon.

We stopped for an impromptu lunch. I ordered the bacon and Camembert sandwich, my partner had the Cullen skink soup. Both were absolutely fantastic. Huge pieces of fish in the soup with a generous serving of granary bread. The sandwich came with a crisp salad...More
