Real Ale Ray left this review about Imperial

Seating space was at a premium on our Wednesday evening visit, then again when you have a large pizza oven and a microbrewery in the main space, you wouldn't be surprised. The bar area was full and the few booths that were near the entrance, that seat four to six people were occupied by couples. We took a look around the back of the pub and found some knocked up bench seating, made from three by two length timbers, which was very uncomfortable and too narrow. I found the atmosphere in here to be pretentious and overrated with elevated beer prices for the keg. Three ales on handpump Iron Pier Wheat IPA, Iron Pier Rosherville Red and Cellar Head Citra Paradisi. We went for the Paradisi which was horrible, so left most of it and ran back to Spoons before getting the train. This is the Brewing Brothers tap, didn't see any of their beers on this visit.

The Imperial is a single room pub where the bar is located to the right and stocked with standard draught products alongside an unused hand pump and Courage Best. This was in fact the last pub on a crawl of the area last Friday night so I didn’t arrive until just after 22:30. It was quiet with a couple of people sitting at the tables and three lads playing on the pool table. I was going to get my darts out and have a throw on one of the two boards at the rear of the pub, but I couldn’t see straight. The pool table is free on Mondays and there are extended opening hours until midnight Mondays to Fridays, 2am on Saturdays and again midnight on Sundays.

I thought that this place was one of the friendlier pubs of the area and I would pop back in if passing.
