We were on our own in an outside area, so can't really comment on atmosphere. One error with food was quickly put right. Confusion over booking - the online system put us in the Courtyard Bistro which wasn't open that day.

Really lovely meal and friendly staff but we did wait about 15 mins for one drink and then our order was lost so we waited about 45 mins - 1 hour for starters. Appreciate these things happen but at least we weren’t rushed!

Really impressive meal at the Imperial Arms using the Eat Out scheme. They have taken real care to create a safe welcoming environment at the pub with the new restrictions. Staff very helpful and friendly. Real ale in excellent condition and the food was fantastic. Will definitely be going back.

We had family come and stay the weekend so we book dinner for Saturday night and as the service and food was excellent we also desisted to book for Sunday Lunch. Again the food was excellent and the waiters were very friendly and helpful so we highly recommend that you try the Imperial Arms for any occasion yourself.

I would have felt more comfortable if staff wore face masks, especially when coming close to take your order and serve food and drinks. Until they do, I won't return.

Following making a booking on Resdiary their software lets you cancel but not to adjust the number of people. It seems the only way is to cancel and rebook but to do so risks losing the table completely. Looking at it from your perspective it could free up a bigger table if you reduce the number.

Always great food, the only thing that could be improved slightly are the desserts. If these could be as good as the mains, this would be outstanding. Perhaps the odd homemade/ fresh option that change each month. Things like homemade Banoffee pie or classic like Eton mess or panacotta would go down a treat! Service is always so friendly and the manager is always very attentive. Sometimes some staff can be a little forgetful with the odd thing but always very welcoming.
