Sunday lunch is a must here, the staff are kind and courteous and really look after you. As a vegetarian, the nut roast is the best I've ever tasted.

What a wonderful bistro, I cannot fault it at all. Four of us ate there and we all loved it. It's such a quirky place, really comfortable and great music. The food was absolutely delicious. Two of us had the 8oz Sirloin Steak and two had the 8oz Old Hill 100% Steak Burger and we would highly recommend both. The pub is also great. All of the staff are really friendly and helpful. We had a great evening and will definitely be back.

Always a warm welcome and excellent food and wine. Tina has obviously done her homework to provide an excellent wine list and menu.

Service was second to none, managed to accommodate 2 late arrivals in our party so we still managed to eat together. Love the bistro eclectic feel, small but very comfortable. Food was tasty but roast potatoes were quite hard as though they’d been reheated. Having said that I definitely intend to return.

The length of time it took for the food to be brought to our table was far too long. There wasn’t enough roast beef with the roast beef dinner We ordered mash potatoe when ordering all other food and it didn’t come out until the end of the meal. We also had to go and ask for it twice. Overall very good food and friendly staff but the slow and careless service let’s the place down.

When over from Ireland visiting relations every year first call on our list is a meal in the Imperial Arms Bistro. Food is always delicious, wine served promptly!! Russell and Tine always look after us. If you are ever in the area I strongly recommend a visit - you will not be disappointed.

Very dark atmosphere. Service was poor. We had to ask several times for drinks and ketchup etc. The dessert was so steaming for the microwave I couldn’t eat it The manager apologised for the poor service saying they’ were short of staff. He was very pleasant but overall disappointing

This is more than just a bistro/pub restaurant. The staff, especially Russel, treated us as if we were old friends. So welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was top notch but the atmosphere and service were way above this. Thank you for a brilliant evening.

Everything was great but the hour long gap between first and main course was not ok, and the main course came out not as described. I’m wondering if the new ‘non roast’ options on the Sunday menu have overwhelmed the kitchen on their busiest day. Love the pub though and looking forward to returning.

Fantastic friendly, welcoming pub. Quality of food & drink were excellent. We booked a table of 7 for lunch as a Birthday Celebration and the team at the Imperial Arms ensured it was a wonderful occasion.

Returned to the Impie, where we first met, for our 15th Anniversary. It was a Tuesday, bizarrely the only day without a special and the bistro wasn’t open. The regulars didn’t seem that pleased to see us in the pub but food was ok and staff friendly.
