Very nice food, but did think was quite expensive. On booking I asked if we could bring our dog and was told not on Sundays and noticed there were two dogs there which was disappointing.

What a lovely pub and a lovely atmosphere. We were looking for a good Sunday Roast and it was rated very well on Trip Advisor. My dinner was a little disappointing with quite fatty lamb and hard roast potatoes. Such a shame as the rest of the experience was great, especially the lovely staff.

Beautiful pub with friendly and attentive staff. Unfortunately the roast dinner was a huge disappointment. Would have got a better roast from a Weatherspoons or a Toby for a fraction of the price. Delicious brownie dessert though. Would definitely pop back for a drink but would give the food a miss next time.

The two ladies who served us were absolutely lovely, so thank you. This time, however, we felt really squeezed in. I have dined with you several times so I know it’s not always the same. There were lots of people standing at the bar - all rather loud men! I guess this is normal in a pub and don’t suppose there is anything you can do, but it just wasn’t that pleasant trying to dine feeling a bit ‘hemmed in’. Superb service and good food - probably will be back just at a quieter time!!

I am so impressed with the food, ambience and service at the imperial arms. In particular I am vegetarian and it ca be difficult to access good pub food. The vegetarian and vegan menu is fabulous - my meat eating friends also chose this here. You can see the effort that has gone into sourcing ingredients for this.

Second time dining here. First in the pub second in the Bistro. Both occasions excellent food and friendly service from the owners and their team. Hard to find a good Sunday roast, make sure you book!

We popped by for the veganuary 2020 menu and it did not disappoint! Such care and attention to creating something different and unique... and THAT 'cheese' board and scotch 'egg' were outstanding. Hope that these items are kept on the menu after January

Not my first time here or my last. Family really enjoyed themselves and the food was excellent as usual. Easily Chislehursts best kept secret. The pub is the right mix of old skool feel with a very very welcoming team. Highly recommend.

Everything was excellent. It was our 5th year for our xmas meal at the Imperial, 3rd year in the bistro after the first 2 years in the pub. The bistro is so much better for us. We look forward to coming back next xmas.

Food was tasty but we wait an hour from ordering to receiving the food. We did receive a couple of apologies and appreciate it's a busy time of year but regardless, an hour really is too long.
