A brilliant pub. A huge range of fantastic ales. The only reason I am not giving it a ten is because the food is a bit ordinary. It has an attractive wooden paneled event room at the back where they have live music. If you love real ale you will love the Ivy House.

Community owned pub, a large place with several good-sized drinking rooms clustered around a central bar area. Trumans Brewery panelling is still intact which gives it a good atmosphere. There is a garden (not seen) and a piano near the garden entrance if anyone is bold enough. A small but interesting range of ales (rather than have too many or run of the mill ones on) and the food was good also. Recommended.

This is a pub that I've had in mind to visit for a good while. So I finally arrived at Nunhead station last night and made the 20 minute uphill walk to the Ivy House through residential areas bereft of pubs (apart from one other). To be honest, I'm not sure I could have told you were Nunhead was until yesterday. The front bar is a lovely affair, if somewhat small. I'd like to have visited the larger room at the rear. But this was reserved for a private party. It made beer selection difficult, as most of the handpulls seemed to be in the other room, until I spotted a blackboard with the selection. Ales on offer were Hobsons Best, Gipsy Hill Southpaw & Beatnik, Cottage Golden Arrow, Brockley Pale Ale, Truman's Runner & Cascadian Black (not sure which brewery, but possibly Saltaire). No real cider is served. Service took a fair while. I'm not sure the pub lived up to its expectations and I left a little disappointed.

Lezford has already posted my thoughts on the Ivy House, A wide choice of ales,not everyone was a winner, the bar staff were somewhat inept, the building/interior was breathtakingly stunning. The potential of this pub in any other location would be really fantastic.The stage/wooden panneling, musical heritage would make any pub lover speechless, the place needs urgent financial support( the toilets are a disgrace), the whole place needs an update and a pub manager with the connections/ability to maximise the music/stage and community possibilities.A phoenix from the ashes,I love the pub but with any project there is more to do.7/10 at the moment, I fully expect a 9/10 soon.

spent a pleasant Saturday afternoon there; the beer was good; the moo pie/chips/peas at 8 quid was nice; the decor, wooden panels etc., made for a traditional feel.

Too many screaming kids running around for my liking, but I'm told they're only allowed up to 8pm.
