First time eating an Italian roast and as a massive roast lover I was pleasantly surprised. At first sight where it is so different from an English roast I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it. It was pork and turkey meat in a...More

We booked a table for seven for my daughter's 11th Birthday. From outside it looks like a local pub but once inside the decor cleverly mixes an aire of sophistication with a traditional pub. It is quite small inside and once the bar gets busy...More

We go here time and time again, very good food and excellent ambience and service. The waitresses are always smiling and nothing is too much trouble for them. Love this place and never get enough of it!

Fish pie! Yes, fish pie, but made with an italian twist. Not a muddle of fishy bits in sauce beneath a blanket of mash in a dish. At the Imperial in Southborough it's a proper crisp, brown, flakey pastry pie with big chunks of cod...More

Been there 3 times now. Food absolutely fantastic and service is superb as well. Would thoroughly recommend the fish stew and spaghetti carbonara. Last year had Italian roast dinner and that was huge. Staff are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable. If you are in area...More
