We loved the food and service. The atmosphere was super and we could tell all the art, mirrors and chandeliers were quality. Every detail had been thought through really well and even the bathroom felt like being in a posh manor. The only criticism (really nitpicking) was that our table next to the kitchen door meant that we smelled of cooking when we got home. The service was really good and we felt like we were looked after but not over the top! Thanks Courtyard Bistro! We will see you soon!

Booked up this past Sunday lunch. 7 of us as family and cannot recommend the Imperial Arms bistro enough as a lovely place to spend a Sunday afternoon. An extremely warm welcome, great service and best of all a delicious lunch. Between us we had chicken and the lamb and was absolutely delighted! Will definitely be visiting again very soon. Thank you all

We had a really lovely roast dinner and would definitely return. It was our first time at the Imperial Arms and we were made to feel very welcome by such a friendly and attentive group of staff. The food was excellent and we never felt rushed. Disappointingly there was only a choice of 2 roast meats when we ordered (admittedly we were late eating!) but will give us a reason to return. Our only suggestion to improve anything is that the gravy could be served separately so people who like very little gravy can limit the amount on their meal. Maybe tell people that the dinner comes with lots of gravy already poured so they have a choice not to have it? Overall, thank you for a great meal and experience!

The food was good, but my three strapping sons and husband did not feel that the portions were sufficient for them.
