Hi Guys

I thought I would join up and respond to your feedback; I am the new Manager here at the Ivy House. We have changed hands and with that come change of suppliers etc etc. So I apologise for the inconvenience its has caused.
I just want to thank you for your feedback below, good and bad. I appreciate them all as they let me know where we are going right & wrong.

I will always try to answer your feedback as best as I can and will also post out a bi weekly newsletter keeping you up to date. I also welcome any suggestions you may have or ideas. I want to provide you all with a decent place to come and relax after your hard day at the office.

We are launching Quiz nights and karaoke�s soon so watch this space� We are also launching our website which will be with you shortly.

In response to Stevie.h feedback on tonic being served in plastic bottles, this problem has been resolved and we know have a supplier for the mini bottles. Lemon and Lime has been hard to get hold of this year for every one (Including Tescos etc.) But have again a supplier for all.

I agree with your feedback on the standards of service, I have re � trained my staff and have also made some changes to the team and would like to welcome Leandre aka Florida, Susannah, Carly, Rosie, Amy and Luke.

Also I am sure none of my staff have posted any feedback here..

I welcome any one with feedback to come see me at the bar I will buy you a beer and we can discuss any issues and will do my very best to solve them.

Till next time guys take it easy

In response to my posting last month about there being no ice, no lemon, no lime, and the tonic being flat 'nightlifeace', who posts regular rave reviews about this place sent me the following charming message:-

"you got barred for bein a moron"

Do you think he works there? ... Or does he just has a strange idea of what constitutes a decent well-run pub?
