So I first met this pub in its original incarnation as The Rivervale Hotel when I started work nearby. Lived through the rougher era a Bat n Ball. Like a caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly so had this one. Great food, beer and staff. Made for a fantastic and enjoyable night out. Overall great value so if your nearby... More

The Empire bar offers the patron the option of drinking outside and on a summers evening, very enjoyable. Inside you can stand at the bar, take a spot on the confortable couches or sit at high top tables. Good place for a celebration which is why I was there. You can have catering, tasting plates or book tables in the... More

Despite ringing beforehand to check if they had any Christmas parties on and being reassured they didn't...we rocked up to the entire inside except one small bar area being booked out for functions. Had to sit outside in the blazing sun. Food was average, bar service was appalling and at one point we just told the guy taking food order... More

We were here for a work function and can I just say that our bar maid Cass was AMAZING!! There really aren't any words to describe how good she was. Not once did we even have to tell her what we drank, she knew it all. She was so happy to do whatever we asked and I truly think she... More

Out waitress for the evening (Yasmin ) was exceptionally prompt with our orders and enjoyed some wacky conversation which we all enjoyed. The Lamb rack... More

I must come clean and admit to using the Empire bar frequently and thus far it's always come good. They serve great food at reasonable prices and there is a good atmosphere. Our last visit was made even more enjoyable with the interaction of our host Jasmin who was attentive and professional whilst engaging with our party. If you are... More
