It's a little nondescript in summer but has a decent autumn leaf colour

They are one of those shrubs that can sit there and do sod all for years but if happy I've seen them 8 x 12 ft

Mine has never produced berries, any idea why this might be?

@beckers1974 how long have you had it & has it ever flowered? They can take a few years to flower after planting . Having said that the main issue with them not fruiting is normally lack of light, they need a good sunny site to produce a good crop.
