Had breakfast here with family last Saturday then returned for dinner with husband. Food was fabulous. Not a huge menu but everything was very high quality and plentiful. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and attentive. The bar was packed and noisy when we first arrived for dinner due to celebrating Chelsea fans in the bar but it quickly calmed... More

Lovely evening catching up with old and new friends for a birthday dinner. Great atmosphere, bar buzzing with people, good service but most importantly fabulous food. Highly recommend the mussels, deliciously tender sirloin steak and the very moreish rosemary skinny fries.

Met friends prior to watching Chelsea. We have eaten here before and thought we would try breakfast. Plenty of choice on the menu, I opted for the Full Breakfast and loved the Harrisa Salsa. Bacon was a little dry however, the rest of the breakfast was plentiful. Being a football day we washed it down with far to many lagers... More

I usually stay at the sister Hotel The President but it was full. l was not disappointed at The Imperial a nice room which was quiet and a good breakfast which l enjoyed. I would suggest to book on line it's cheaper.

We decided to pay another visit to The Imperial as we had such a lovely lunch last time. They have completely refurbished the interior and outside area (which is so tastefully done), very stylish, and comfortable, great attention to detail. They have kept the informality of the bar/deli area, yet offer a restaurant and open kitchen area for diners. The... More

Four of us had dinner after the recent refurbishment and we were very pleased with the results. The food was really good and tasty and we had a fabulous bottle of Argentinian Malbec which was outstanding and great value. All round a great fun evening.
