This is definitely the place at uni that I spend the most of my social and free time for a number of reasons. Especially being a part of the LGBT+ Network (this year I am the communications officer for the network), we have our meet ups every week in Ember. So it is safe to say, I have become very familiar with that venue and the menu.
I always refer to Ember as the ‘student pub’ as it is very much our version of Wetherspoons with the cocktail pitchers and the variety of food. Speaking of food, I am particularly fond of the curly fries and I always make sure to have them when I’m eating there!
What’s even better is that you can order the food to take out as well!
In general, as well I feel like there is always something going on there. Now I’m not a big sporting fan myself but Ember is a great atmosphere for you to be able to watch the football etc. with your friends on a big projector screen.
Obviously the karaoke nights on Tuesday are incredibly popular, although I have actually only ever been to one it was a lot of fun! I was meeting up with my flat mates from first year and we all had a lot of fun that evening singing along to someone doing Angels by Robbie Williams and drinking cocktails.
I have done the ‘pub quiz’ a couple of times as well with friends which is also a lot of fun regardless of how well you do in the quiz. It’s only £1 per member of your team to take part and there are several different rounds that you might do better in than others. Like I know I always seem to be particularly bad at the music round! Overall though, the pub quiz is a really good, fun way to spend the end of your week.
Anyway, that’s what I’m #AllStokedUp about but what do you love about Stoke? What place on Stoke campus do you frequent the most? Post your comments below.
