This pub serves really yummy pub food consistently! The service is always great, quick and friendly. The cute boho furniture in the beer garden is great. We went for our staff xmas party lunch and there were no complaints at all.

We had been recommended to have dinner here and it did not disappoint. The decor is modern and spacious and the bistro and beer gardens are fantastic. The menu is outstanding ranging from local meat to swordfish steaks. Local wines are great too.

We don't normally stay in pubs, so we didn't quite know what to expect. The room was only slightly larger than the bed. It was hard to find somewhere to put our luggage. The only window opened into a public space, which meant we couldn't use it. The air conditioner was our only source of ventilation and there was no... More

The Princess and I enjoyed dinner at the Imperial Hotel, Cowra. It's about making you feel welcome, and the food is good pub grub. The beer is good, too. The Hotel is situated well, at the lower end of Kendal St, and is easy to spot. Good food for my Dollars.

My wife and I spent a night in Cowra and wandered over to the imperial for a drink before moving on to a nearby restaurant for dinner. But we never left! The friendly bar staff introduced me to a Yenda IPA, so i had a couple. We noticed then that the locals were arriving for the bistro, so we stayed... More

Attended on a Saturday night and they were very busy which is I regard as a great indication of the quality of the place. Made a booking for dinner for 6.30pm, ordered but didn't receive the food until 7.20. Not really a problem as the pub has a great atmosphere and it was great to soak it in and have... More

Stayed with a group of friends after the Cowra Wine Show in the middle of the year. They had hundreds of patrons at the pub and handled it really well, was just such a fun night. Accommodation was fine and rooms/bathrooms (which are shared) are all clean. Really easy going & friendly environment. There is a sink in the room... More

It took 3 attempts to find the right room and the right key to work it. No heating in this place during mid winter so the room was a survival exercise. The meal of calamari was without doubt the worst epicurean experience of my life. Inedible. Wifi didn't work. Just a really bad experience and no way would I return....EVER!!!

Fantastic food at fantastic prices, would have to be the best food in Cowra, make sure you check it out when visiting. Warm and welcoming from the owner and all the staff, make sure you book as it can be very busy, or you may have to wait for a table.

Country surprise "the Impy" as its affectionately known This hotel should not be judged by its cover, the manager was excellent finding us a table for three, during a busy Friday night with a function happening. Advised us to order our meals quickly so we didn't have to wait, & we didn't wait long, about 15 minutes & three of... More
