The Ivy House is a Café Bar named after Stockton’s very own Ivy Close. In 1908, Ivy Close was named the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by the British tabloid the Daily Mirror, beating over 1,500 contestants, so becoming generally recognised as Britain’s first beauty queen.
There was then a competition between the winner in Britain and the winner in the US, and she ended up winning that one. People often say she was effectively the first ever Miss World. Ivy went on to star in a long list of films that decade and set up her own production company, which was not uncommon for a successful actress in the silent era.
At Ivy House, we offer a fantastic range of Craft, Cask, Cocktails, Wine, Premium Spirits including over 25 Gins and of course Coffee and a range of speciality Teas.
Food is served from 8:30am. Breakfast is from 8:30am to 11:30am. We also offer a selection freshly made sandwiches, wraps and jacket potatoes and of course Pub Classics such as Lasagne, Burgers and Pizzas.
