    The Waverley Arms on Ivydale Rd is now up and running again after an extensive refurb and we'd just like to spread the word and say hello.

    We took over the pub in early February and after having invested our pennies into this formerly unloved boozer (not to mention plenty of blood sweat and tears), we finally reopened our doors at the end of July. We're new to the pub game having given up our sensible 9-5 day jobs but are loving every minute so far, especially as the initial reactions have been so nice and positive.

    We've managed to wangle some great tasting local ales and beers out of Punch taverns, and have an interesting and very reasonably priced wine list that hopefully covers all the bases.

    A new kitchen is coming this autumn (the pub has never had a trade kitchen), but in the meantime we're serving great summer grub off our massive outdoor BBQ and have plenty of fancy snacks to keep hunger at bay. Come autumn, we will be serving handmade stonebaked pizzas and hearty salads, and then plan to roll out top-notch burgers, daily specials and a Sunday roast a bit further down the line. The menu will be simple and use high quality ingredients, but The Waverley will be a pub that serves great food, rather than a restaurant pretending to be a pub.

    After living in and around the area for the last few years, and having made The Waverley our family home, we really hope you will love the pub as much as we do. We'll be starting a pub quiz and Sunday night piano sing-a-longs, plus a few other events shortly. We're open to ideas and would really appreciate any feedback you'd like to give.

    We have a large backroom that would make a great space for parties/functions etc, and during weekdays before 4pm the whole pub can be used privately for any community groups that might be interested.

    Hope to see you soon for a drink and a chat.

    Good luck to you. We went a few weeks ago and it's a lovely old boozer. Look forward to the kitchen opening.
