Housed in the centre of Darlington, The Ivy House is a fairly new addition to the many great dining options enjoyed by local diners. Opened in 2015, this lovely little restaurant has proved to be quite a hit with its attractive setting and tasty menu and now boasts a long list of regular customers who return time and again for an enjoyable meal. Being an independent little eatery, service is just as important as the food and staff at The Ivy House have obviously all been carefully selected as everyone is very helpful, warm and friendly.
The menu at The Ivy House is all about presenting great flavours and the best ingredients, and dishes are constantly changing to keep up with the seasons and what’s available in the local area. Classic British dishes and Caribbean classics feature alongside each other, allowing eager diners ample choice. One of the most popular starters has to be the spicy crab cakes, served with a fresh salad, whilst potato skins with a homemade BBQ dip are another great way to kick off a meal. Main courses continue to impress, such as a tender and juicy lamb shank or a classic steak. The Caribbean curry is always a winner whilst the curried vegetables with rice are perfect for vegetarian diners.
Chic leather chairs and cool modern wall papering keeps things stylish at The Ivy House whilst windows are framed with pretty drapery to offer a homely feel. Located close to the excellent shopping facilities of Darlington, the restaurant is a great choice for a post shopping lunch or dinner whilst evening dining is always a popular occasion.
