Very slow in serving up three salads and a goulash. Baked Caemenbert was small for the price but house salad at £4.50 plus £2 for chicken and £3 for salmon fillet was good value. Confusing display of cask beers "Coming soon" Only two other tables eating on a Saturday night but food took 45 minutes to arrive.

Great tidy pub, nice food and good entertainment, would avoid Friday night or leave before 9pm if your looking for a quiet evening. Nice to drop in after a walk over Cofton Park or The Lickey Hills.

Called in for evening meal after a day out at Warwick and found this place to be excellent in all areas. Nice big car park, plenty of outside space and friendly bar staff. The food and waitress service was excellent and the general atmosphere of the pub was relaxed - a nice place to end our day.

Went to this excellent pub last sunday, and was very pleasantly surprised. The service was good, the staff pleasant and helpful, and the place was very nice. The manager even took time to sit down and have a chat. The number of items on the menu, and the quality of the food, was top notch. Would definitely go back.

I visited the pub whilst in Birmingham for a conference, and was incredibly impressed by the quality of the food as well as the service proffered by the staff. I started with the soup which was really tasty, and then moved on to have one of the best cooked steaks I've ever eaten. So rare for places to cook it... More

We called in at the Old Hare and Hounds for the first time last week. It was a very busy Friday teatime, but we managed to find a good table near the window. I ordered the blade of beef which came with chips and trimmings, and a BBQ sauce. The meal was lovely, with loads of very tender beef falling... More

It is a long time since I have lunched at this pub following an unpleasant, previously reported experience with a cremated chicken. We thought we would give it another try. I like the look of the place and especially its setting under the Lickey Hills on a lovely sunny springtime Sunday afternoon. I had a nice beer and my cousin... More

I spent lunch time in this Ember Inn yesterday, the food and the service were both really nice. The pub and patio were tidy and well presented. I'll definitely be coming back with my family again. 10/10
