Remember this pub back in the days before it was much modified and extended. At least the original bar and fireplace on the left hand side as you enter from the road has been left largely untouched. As ther are now only two pubs in the centre of Warlingham this is now the busiest. Normally about 4 or 5 real ales on.

The brewing industry is never one to hold back when it comes to committing crimes of vandalism, and the deed done here was pretty monstrous. For reasons which defy rational explanation M&B took a much loved historic 15th century building and, riding roughshod aver a vociferous local campaign bastardized it into an Ember Inn.

Ignoring the new and wholly pointless extension at the back, the floor plan remains much the same, several smallish rooms at the front deriving form the row of cottages that were incorporated over the centuries and various fascination nooks and crannies.

However they've done their utmost to remove all atmosphere from the place. Wood panelling painted over in daft pastel shades, the ancient beams boxed in with formica, the old wobbly furniture replaced by MFI stuff.

This used to be a destination pub, there are few such traditional inns this close to London. All that has been thrown away thanks to short-term corporate greed.
