I had been to the emperor a few times in the summer and I must agree with a previous post tht the landlords were very lackadaisical and really did not seem fussed apart from that the few times I visited were pleasant not great but pleasant, now I must say I visited the emperor in the fall and was amazed by the change of things, menus ,staff , the food was great I had the salmon which was the weekly special and it was one of the tastiest I have ever had I also visited last Sunday and had the roast lamb which was also incredible, the place itself is very warm and welcoming with a real log fire and there is a distinct split between the bar and restaurant so there is both aspects of a traditional pub and a top notch restaurant, over all a simply wonderful experience

Visited this restaurant last night with three girl friends. It offers cheap pub food at high class restaurant prices!

I had calamari to start: four frozen rings on a bed of lettuce and battered fish for main. The fish was ok, but the chips were frozen and the peas were stone cold, poorly mashed frozen peas - yuk. Could have cooked better myself!

They seriously need to lower their prices if this is typical of the food they are going to serve.

The Emperor on Black Pond Lane is a terrific gastronomic find combining the tradition of a local pub with sumptuous decor, various snugs and a blazing log fire in the bar and a thoroughly modern dining experience. The staff are attentive, the food is fabulous with generous portion sizes .... The roast rib beef was succulent, vegetables cooked to that just perfect crunch and the the chocolate fondant pudding was the best I'd ever tasted. The whole affair was complimented incredibly well by a great jazz trio playing in the main restaurant. I can't recommend highly enough.
