Lovely pub. Very welcoming Sunday roasts are really good. Service is excellent. Have been quite a few times now and always enjoy it. 😊
Great pub with great food and staff!
Fantastic location for family celebration. Russle was friendly and could not do enough to make the day go smoothly from sourcing music suitable for the occasion to running the bar and ensuring everyone’s needs were met. Food was lovely as usual and Tina was also in hand to ensure everything went to plan. Could not have asked for a better day, everyone commented how lovely it was. Thank you all.
Great meal and really good service.
Took our friends here who were visiting from Wales and had a super evening. Our waitress was especially friendly. Thank You.
The friendly service, food and atmosphere was all great! We ate in the bistro which was really intimate and lovely for families. We will definitely be returning.
We were given a great table. The ladies were super attentive in taking our order and bring our food. The food, I had the port belly, was amazing! And lots of it. Great value. We were shown the bistro which is very smart. I think this pub is better than the more fussy and expensive Bull Inn up the road.
Lovely Bistro with great food and service
A lovely meal with excellent service. Will definitely return.
Your service is over and above excellent. I have been several times with my family and friends and absolutely love it. Thank you.
Thank you Tina and team we had a great lunch meeting in the bistro.
Great service from all the staff. Food was nice but a little bland
Great atmosphere great food and staff always friendly.
Great quiz night lovely food and staff :)
Can honestly say all 3 of us really enjoyed Everything we had.I am alread looking at getting back up next wednesday for curry night we was that impressed with the food Thanks alot for having us
Delicious food, gorgeous setting however forgetful service. Had to ask for drinks, poppodoms weren’t brought out and the owner was very standoffish when I asked why a table were served their food before us even though they arrived at least 45 minutes after us. This is the third time I’ve visited and each time the service has been very slow.
From the moment we arrived we taken care of beautifully, the young lady who served us was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. We shared at the sharing platter to start, followed by the giant Scampi and a lovely Burger, the fries were delicious too! We wouldn’t hesitate to return!
First visited pub a few weeks ago and wasnt disappointed on return visit. Service excellent, food very tasty, will return
I came here for a meal with my parents, as they were visiting me from Scotland and Cornwall. We had a beautiful meal and the service was amazing. This is our local pub and we have been in a few times for a drink, but we will definitely eat in here more often. We all finished our plates and it was the perfect end to a lovely weekend. Thank you.
Always great service and food at the imperial arms! We also had our mums wake here on Friday afternoon in the bistro - food was great as was the service.. stunning setting which helped create a lovely atmosphere. Big thank you to Russell for kindly pegging up all the photos of our mum. Cannot recommend this wonderful establishment highly enough x
We were able to book a table for 9 at very short notice and were treated like royalty from start to finish! The Bistro is beautifully decorated and has a very warm & relaxing atmosphere. We all enjoyed our food, and my niece was apparently the first ever Vegan to try the vegan cheese board!!! - and she was delighted with it.
Great choice of dishes for everyone - we particularly liked the new vegan nachos and umami burger.
Not really sure what to say. Nice traditional pub surroundings and enjoyed our visit but we were told as soon as we arrived lamb roast was sold out. There were 5 of us when the 5th dinner arrived it didn’t have any veg. We were then told that they had run out of veg so gave us an extra Yorkshire and some extra cauliflower cheese. The potatoes were billed as fresh duck fat potatoes, but tasted of school dinner potatoes. For desert we ordered sticky toffee pudding we got served syrup sponge as they didn’t have any sticky toffee. Management deducted cost of puddings from the bill. We did enjoy the atmosphere and would visit again, but would only visit early otherwise may suffer fate of running out of food again
Wonderful place to eat and drink. We went on Curry night and had the Vegan Thai curry which was lovely. Really recommend!
Great way to wind down on a Friday evening. Everything good about the experience. Keep it up. We’ll be back soon
