|Been in a few times over the last few months. Great Building. Clean pleasant decor, well looked after premises. Incompetent but friendly barstaff- no product knowledge, no idea where the drinks I asked for were located on the bar and struggled to retrieve and pour them. Also had no idea how to use the credit card machine. However, good food. Pub has a good friendly atmosphere. Hope to see them get better!|

|been in a few times over the last month , mainly for food , which wasnt too bad , first time the chicken was a bit dry but edible , but this isnt a eating website its a pub website |
the pub is a chain , not a bad chain , bit of a limited range of beer (fosters , smiths etc etc) , the staff seem ok , but i will agree with a previous poster about the female staff , one is a total bimbo who looks at you like your "strange" when you say what you want , but cant complain too much, a good pint was poured little bit pricey (pint of smiths n fosters a j20 and something alcoholic and coke) £9.50 but it is a nice relaxed place

|Another drab Ember Inn. Beer is well kept but rather predictable and dull (Green King IPA et al) the all female staff seemed to spend a lot of time chatting rather than serving. Had to wait ages in a quiet period, what were they doing? Havnt tried the food but the menu was rather eclectic relying heavily on dishes enhanced with cheese (Im dairy intolerant). I dont think they could cope if there was a rush on. There seemed to be a very low turnover of drinks which meant the 4 fat ladies had plenty of time to converse and put the world to rights.|

|The funny thing about this pub, and probably all Ember Inn pubs, is that you see a banner outside proclaiming 'Beer Festival' or whatever, you go inside and all they have on are the usual two or three ales. Saying that, it is quite a cosy pub with a nice beer garden. I've never eaten there and cannot imagine that the food is that great. It used to be great, but went the way of a lot of pubs in this area and got bought out by Ember Inns - the Tescos of pub chains.|

|went on monday for a ncie lunch with the family..|
ordered quick and got a round of drinks in, over an hour passes and no sign of our food.
i could accept that wait if the pub was busy but it was very very empty, only two other tables eating.
got a free round of drinks by way of apology but not sure when i'll be popping back.
they didnt even get the order right.
