Every time I visit The Imperial, I'm impressed with the high quality service, food and atmosphere there. The staff are really helpful, the pizza's are homemade and excellent. Great place to meet friends or take the family. Well worth a visit.

Always get good food here, particularly the pizzas, but the main meals are often too salty. Nice pub with excellent staff.
