Great pizzas!

So many vegan options on the pizzas and more, looking forward to trying more options. Not tried sides or puddings yet as have always had pizza.

You can order the alcohol they have on tap in thirds, a nice way to have a try of the range they offer.

Having tried places that do mock meat on pizzas before and been disappointed, this is different, they clearly are keen to have interesting flavour combinations and have protein yay!

Pros: So many interesting combinations of pizza toppings, Thoughtful staff, Hot drinks available

Cons: Fake horns light feature is a bit off putting , More non alcoholic drink options would be good

Great vegan roast

This really is a fine place to go for a vegan Sunday roast. All the vegetables were cooked to perfection and seasoned so well, with a really tasty gravy. Compliments to the chef too for the mash that was excellent and so creamy.

The mock meat substitute also had a nice smokiness to it and you even get yorkshire puddings, which unlike in other establishments are not usually provided. The Yorkshire puddings were excellent by the way.

At ยฃ10.95 I must admit I was a little dubious, but this was justified by the extremely generous portion size. Some folk were even taking there leftovers home!

They also have clearly labelled vegan ales and personally I would recommend the green mountain IPA. Staff are very welcoming and there's always good music playing.

Pros: Great vegan roast , Portion sizes , Staff & vibe

Cons: Meat

Sunday roast.

The Sunday dinners have improved from the first time I went over one ago. I found the gravy a bit bland, but they make one pot for all, so at least it was safe.

Great vegan options

Went for lunch at the Ivy House after a long morning shopping and it did not disappoint! So many amazing vegan options on the menu, totally spoilt for choice! I went for the vegan kiev pizza which was incredible and my partner got the vegan meatball sub which he also thoroughly enjoyed! We also got some onion rings and doughballs on the side which were also very yummy! ๐Ÿ˜‹ Looking forward to visit this place on a Sunday in the future to try their Sunday dinner.... ๐Ÿ’– The staff were also very friendly and knowledgeable about veganism which is always a bonus! We didn't manage to finish all our munch but the staff were more than happy to box it up for us to take home which was very kind too ๐Ÿ˜

Brilliant food

This place is fantastic! Extremely well priced and the food is fantastic! Itโ€™s just a small pub but the food could be put in a fancy restaurant. The quality was unbelievable and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I couldnโ€™t fault this place and it was so refreshing to go into a small pub and have a load of vegan options! I could eat here all the time it was that great!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Fantastic customer service , Really well priced / affordable

Very organised

First up response to Covid. Sign in at door given plastic card for ongoing visits. Staff in ppe. Table service and outdoor area. Spacious. Tables fully cleaned on someone leaving but also in preparation for seating. Wasnโ€™t peak time but felt good about dealing with this.

Good range of Pizzas that can be vegan friendly, sides including vegan mayo etc.

2 vegan burgers and their 3 times cooked wedges fantastic. Wife had vegetarian pizza so havenโ€™t tried the vegan cheese yet but will certainly be back to try.

Very attentive friendly staff and felt well looked after.

Exceptional vegan pizzas. Landlady is a vegan herself. Lovely pub [censored]

This is one of Sunderlandโ€™s finest pubs and they welcome vegans with open arms. Beautiful pizzas and burgers, plus other stuff. Worth a trip.

Pros: Gorgeous pub, Lots of vegan food choices, Vegan landlady

Cons: No vegan wine
