Really relaxed and very enjoyable 🍻
It was great to be back in The Imperial. Always a warm welcome, great service and lovely food!
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.
We are Vegan and were delighted not to be overlooked... the plant based burger was amazing and can't wait to go back and try the curry
First class friendly helpful service and chilled relaxed atmosphere. Brilliant food especially the legendary vegan burger!
Honestly the best pub/ bistro I’ve ever been too. Atmosphere is second to none and the food is divine. Me and my family will be returning again & again!
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.
Great lunch as always had to wait a while for food but that not a problem as fab when it arrived
Very friendly and helpful staff
Our Roast dinner was amazing ,the gravy was the best we have ever tasted in our life my husband actually asked for a spoon to not waste any. The service we received was warm and friendly nothing was to much trouble. A really great place the bistro is beautiful. Thank you we web back and I have already recommended to friends
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.
Fantastic Sunday roast, fresh tasty food. Prices a bit higher than other pubs but quality of food and portions make up for this. Staff very friendly and efficient
Always great food friendly Staff and lovely atmosphere
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.
We love your pub. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food, as always, is amazing.
Wonderful service, food (Sunday Roast) and atmosphere. Handled social distancing / hygiene precautions super easily and made guests feel at ease. A lovely way to ease back into the new normal. Thank you!
Always a pleasure going here, the food is fantastic and staff are so friendly and welcoming
Recommended to anyone for Sunday roast. The roast lamb was excellent!
We had such a lovely evening! The food and service was great and the court yard so charming. We’re looking forward to coming back soon.
Best Sunday lunch in Kent dressed crab was amazing. Lovely friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit you wont regret it. Val
Excellent as always. Wonderful to be back!!
