Stamford Bridge staple, The Imperial Arms has lost both, its arms and its match day mayhem, as the King's Road pub has undergone a lavish makeover. The Chelsea bar is now known simply as The Imperial, and takes on a new role as a chic gastro pub. The Victorian building has been lovingly restored, to a sleek and sophisticated finish that incorporates original antique features, and the stylish vibe of its King's Road neighbours.
While holding on to the popularity and charm of the old pub, this London restaurant bar brings in customers with a selection of refined yet nutritious sustainably-sourced British and international cuisine, and a varied wine list stocked with both British and organic options. The Imperial is the work of long-time food and beverage pros Kate MacWhirter and Alan Turtill who, between them, have CVs that read like a little black book of London bars and restaurants; they've also brought in bright spark young chef Tom Hope to run the seasonally-focused kitchen.
This Chelsea restaurant bar is sophisticated yet low key, with guests dropping in for everything from a quick tipple, to a three course meal. Spaces ranging from a bustling open kitchen restaurant, to a chilled out bar space or beer garden.
