Ember Lounge Logo

Ember Lounge is Staffordshire University Students' Union primary food and drink venue on College Road in stoke. Located next to Squeeze Box and The Union Shop, Ember Lounge is open weekdays from 9am until late, and weekends from 12 noon until late.

The venue offers comfort, and a great selection of freshly prepared food served to table. Ember Lounge is a great place to socialise with friends whilst enjoying refreshments whether it be as simple as an espresso, or one of the legendary Ultimate food items. All of our food is freshly prepared with pride by our dedicated kitchen team, who always strive to exceed your expectations, in order that you get great food, great quality, at a great price.

Our Ember Kids Menu was specially developed this year following feedback from members of the Students' Union with children. Smaller portions for smaller appetites, at great value prices. For members with really small children, under 5s can eat for FREE (Terms & Conditions apply).

To cut down on food miles, the Union has switched to a local butcher for its beef and lamb burgers. These are delivered fresh on a daily basis, travelling just 1.5 miles. Diners can also enjoy freshly prepared pizzas cooked in an authentic Italian pizza oven, healthy salads and delicious sundaes for dessert too, providing you with food to suit all tastes. 

The venue hosts two of the biggest projection screens in Staffordshire, showing live sporting events from both SKY and BT Sport, including Premier League Football, Grand Slam Tennis, Golf and F1. Along with live sporting events, evening entertainment includes regular Karaoke and our Big Quiz.

For the third year in a row Ember Lounge was also awarded Gold in the Best Bar None. Alongside Verve, it is now in the top six venues in the country and is classed as a Centre of Excellence for other Union venues to learn from. 

Ember Lounge offers something for everybody. Come and visit us, we know you will enjoy your experience with us.
