Basically, 5 star food, 3 star service. The dining room is in the Imperial Hotel and visually is very nice. The lamb I had was beautiful, and my husband stated his steak was one of the best he has had. Both meals were close to $40 each. That being said, the service is not up to scale with the meals....

After a long and busy day I wanted something really tasty to eat in a relaxed and friendly environment. I was not disappointed! The restaurant was busy with two bigs groups in but that meant there was a real buzz about the place and also got the juices flowing as I saw the food coming out - they say you... More

My wife & I dined here on Saturday night. We had previously dined at Lot 31 several times in its old location across the road and always had a good food and service. Although the atmosphere is now different at the Imperial Pub, and the menu has changed to suit a gastro pub, the food is still good. We went... More

This restaurant has delicious food and priced right too. It moved to the Old Mill where it traded for a few months and then the purchase of the Imperial Hotel by the owners had the restaurant moved into the hotel. Can highly recommend this eatery.

We discovered when we got to Cowra that Lot 31 had moved into the Imperial pub. The food was good, with locally sourced beef and lamb. Service was friendly and helpful. We ate in the pub one night, as the dining room was fully booked. This was fairly basic but had everything we needed. Another night we ate in the... More

The relocated Lot 31 crew seem to have breathed new life into the Imperial Hotel menu. Good range. My steak with fat chips was just what I was looking for. Would be happy if every pub meal was of this standard.

Had a lovely meal here. Was noisy as they had a really large booking that night. (Worth booking if you want to be in the restaurant it seems to be very popular) The cowra lamb was delicious but way to much food so could only eat about half of it. The steak sandwich looked yummy too.

This was our second visit to Lot 21 which is now in a new location in the Imperial Hotel. What a difference from its previous location in The Mill; the restaurant is warm, bright but thankfully with the same friendly staff, including Justine. You have the choice of ordering and sitting in the bar area or table service within the... More
