Very much boarded up when I walked past yesterday.
You would someone would make a success of this place as its a decent sized boozer in a prime location.
I used to go in the Imperial a lot when in my late teens/early twenties, but thinking back if never my favourite

Unfortunately it would seem that the previous incumbents didn�t manage to make a success of the place despite it�s extensive makeover and it has now been bought by Butcombe. Decor wise it�s pretty much unchanged, the only differences that I noticed was a bar menu hanging on a blackboard above the fireplace and railings outside enclosing a few tables and chairs.

Beer choice was naturally more extensive, although also exclusively Butcombe with their Bitter, Rare Breed and Blond. The Ashton Press has been joined by Thatcher�s Gold.

Now known as The Imperial Brasserie, the name sums it up fairly well. It was shut for some time, and has undergone an extensive refurbishment before re-opening as a Bistro/Wine Bar type establishment rather than your traditional pub.

It�s split in to two rooms, with the bar counter in between. The rear room seems to be more geared up for dining, with plenty of tables and chairs all laid up for eating along with maroon paintwork and venetian blinds at the window. The front area is more drinker friendly, although the cocktail and wine list on each table hints at the type of clientele they are looking to attract. The decor here is not dissimilar to the rear, but the paintwork is more of a mocha brown with wood panelling on the lower third of the walls. A number of arty black and white photos are dotted around, there is a fireplace and a mixture of wood and leather backed chairs plus a few leather sofas. The flooring is mostly carpet apart from some wooden boards around the bar.

Clearly it�s had some considerable investment, and I hope that this pays off. The loos in particular are very plush, with blue down lighters below the sinks. Although it wasn�t particularly busy on a recent Thursday evening visit, there were a few people eating. They apparently host jazz evenings on Wednesdays.

The solitary beer on offer was Butcombe Gold, and the only cider Aston Press.

Lovely decor considering the state it got into a few years back. looks like new ownership, freindly staff on show, and lost of events here from tango dancing to rock bands. one for the weekends i think.
