On a rainy Thursday night, we headed out to eat for my daughter's birthday. Although they were busy, staff were friendly and meals were quick. We had delicious entrees and mains. Staff even made a special kid size prawn pasta for the birthday girl. We'll be regulars.

Recently overhauled, stopped in for a beer, planned to eat elsewhere though after seeing and smelling the menu decided to stay. What a great meal, and couldn't finish it was so big! Delicious flavour, the lamb, oh my god.. Listened to the helpful staff, even the local wine recommended was perfect. Definitely returning.

Staying over night and needed a place to eat. Recommend by the hotel I was staying in. I had the Cowra Lamb. It was cooked as it should have been the sides were lovely and the presentation was very urban chic. Next time I'm in town will try another signature dish that is locally sourced. Well done!!

Had an amazing meal at the Imperial. Cowra Lamb with asparagus and mashed potatoes - beautifully cooked, tasty, great value. Gluten free dessert also available. I will definitely visit on my next trip to Cowra.

Wow, such friendly staff! Ordered the scotch fillet which was cooked perfectly. The mushroom sauce and thick cut chips were delicious. Regularly travel through Cowra on my way down to the snow and will be bypassing the bakery to call in here again.

Tried dining room only not accommodation. Best steak sandwich with house made fat chips that you will ever find - pricey but worth it. Friendly wait staff who went out of their way to help. Wine was a bit average.

The Imperial hotel's dinning room should be listed as the best place in Cowra for dinner. Certainly the place was packed, but the service is good, and the food is excellent. Just remember to save room for desserts which are superb. That could be a problem, as the servings are true to the country heritage of this pub, that is... More

So bloody good they ran out of food. A little bit more head on the beer.... but the country charm makes it bearable..... a must do if you like an aussie pub. Nice and clean and packed for dinner! Only downfall was it isn't big enough for the fans of the Impy

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.
