Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Please note, The Imperial has now closed. Time Out Food editors, MARCH 2020.
A recently refurbished bar and dining room on the King's Road. The Victorian building has been given an attractive new lick of paint, with the bar area - accommodating drinkers and diners throughout the day - a separate entity to the 50-cover restaurant next door. There's a spacious garden outside, too.
The bar offers cocktails, continental lagers a varied wine list and craft beers - including the venue's own brew, Imperial Ale. Food can be ordered from the kitchen but there's a deli, too, with salads, sandwiches and snacks to take away.
The restaurant menu ranges from steamed mussels, seared scallops and steak burgers in brioche buns to a loin of venison served with caramelised carrot, charred red onion, truffle creamed potato and a red wine jus. Sunday roasts prove popular, too.
