Kake visited on a Tuesday afternoon in September 2011. There were a few people in, but plenty of free tables as most people were clustered around the bar or sitting out the front. Music was playing, a bit of an odd mix swinging from Mica Paris to Katy Perry.
Three of the four handpumps were on, offering Ringwood Best (a special offer of £1/pint), Nethergate Essex Border (£1.50/half), and London Pride; the other one was clipped for Young's Bitter, but turned round to indicate it was off.
Strangely, although this pub doesn't appear on the Ember Inns website, there were "Ember Cask Club" booklets on display, listing the real ales on offer across the chain. The food menu also looked fairly chain-like. It's not clear whether this is an Ember Inn or not.
According to the 2012 Good Beer Guide, food is served all day until 9pm, and quiz night is Tuesday (the latter being confirmed by a sign seen in the pub in September 2011, which additionally stated that the quiz starts at 8pm).
Accessibility: At least one of the entrances is step-free. From there, the bar and some of the seating is on the same level, and a ramp leads to more seating and the toilets. A third seating area, to the right of the bar, is up a step.
