While the food was cheap (2for1) mine was very ordinary, steak was very tuff, the wife said her's was good, I wouldn't rush back there

Ordered the special angus sirloin. Was tough and full of grissle. Med/rare and trouble even cutting. So disappointing. Told waitress. Sorry to hear she said.

A great place to sit, eat and enjoy a cold beer!
Saturday lunch, brisket burger and vegan schnitzel. With lots of vegan and vegetarian options in meals, sides and sauces, you would have to try everything on the menu at least once!
Great service from the friendly staff, great food great atmosphere for relaxed lunch.
Good work guys, see you again soon!

Fabulous traditional pub. The rooms are neat, clean and affordable. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the bar has a great variety of beers available on tap. The bistro has tasty well portioned food available with plenty of seating. The pub is in a great spot with the river walk behind and easy access to central Maitland shops and restaurants. I had a great stay.

The service at the imperial was 10/10. My husband and I were extremely impressed with the manager and how he went out of his way to ensure we had a good meal.
Food was delicious and well priced.

We recently had a reservation here to celebrate our daughters 21st birthday with 12 other family members
Upon arriving were told that we had to move because of the loudness of the trivia night.
Then when ordering our food it was either cold, served too early, or way over cooked.
When we asked for medium to well done steak, with sald and chips, the chips were frozen, the steak came out way over cooked and burnt, hard and cold.
The chicken schnitzel meals that were ordered were also way over cooked crispy hard dry and very Un appealing.
When staff came to collect plates or glasses they only collected one or 2, didn't do a round .and collect all dishes and left the dirty dishes on our tables
They were quiet abrupt and rude as well.
When we mentioned our meal wasn't pleasant, we tried to return it and they only rebooked the chips which burnt amd weren't fresh hoy chips.
The meat and schnitzel were very burnt and over cooke, small in size for the price.
When ordering a schnitzel it is supposed to be a full chicken breastfeeding that is butterflies not look like a rolled up piece of kieve that is burnt to a crisp.
A steak is supposed to be cooked to perfection, not taste like leather and hard that you can't cut into it amd is the size of your small palm.
Very poor quality of service and disgusting food quality for a local that has and always had a good name.
It needs to improve food wise and staff need to learn to be taught about cooking and manners towards customers

A bit disappointing. The menu has changed since the last time I was here (less than two months ago). There is no lunch menu now and the prices are not good. Eg. $5 extra for a tiny basket of chips with a burger. $2 for a tiny dollop of tomato sauce. And one of my friends had a tough over-cooked rump steak with curdled and split seafood sauce on it. I dont know why they didn't notice that the sauce had split before they brought it out. My steak was also tough. It either was a cheap cut or not cooked proficiently. My salad was limp and lifeless as well. I wouldn't recommend this place anymore. Maybe other items are better but it was a disappointing lunch.

Always get great service here from the staff. Always friendly and helpful. If there's a mistake with your order, they're only too happy to fix it up. All the seats and tables are comfy with a good size screen for the footy. 400gm rib eye is the biggest steak. Always cooked perfectly. Definitely get the hot roast potato salad for your side.

Netty. Was. Here. Impressive Midweek $15 lunch specials. If you are sick of the classic regulars, come check out the modern eastern style lunch specials here at the Imperial.

Unlucky for me on the day they did not have any Soba Noodles left; but I opted for that Pub Classic Steak and was blown away!

For the cut of meat and my preference for medium rare meat the chef DELIVERED my order to perfection ??'? did I just get that for $15? Impressive! Extra bonus points for having the tastiest Dianne Sauce with the proper amount of tang!

A menu that looks like it changes seasonally you won't get tired of the usual specials if you come here for Lunch Midweek.

Enjoyed my stay at the imperial hotel. Although an older style pub the room was clean and fresh with a good size tv and a wash braid in the room. Shared bathroom was spotless and not a problem for me.
Self service breakfast and a shared kitchen and dining room
Staff very friendly
Eat in the pub or there are several good places to eat nearby

Was a Sunday night so nice and quiet in the room except the rubbish vehicles that had me awake at 5am !

Easy parking behind the pub in a large car park

Worst NYE experience. Arrived and was greeted with terrible customer service. We were told they couldn't find our booking, that we made two weeks in advance and that they couldn't do anything to accommodate us. We have been going there for NYEs as a family for the last 15 years. We won't be back.

Great menu, delicious food. I enjoyed that it was more than just your typical pub snitzel type menu.
Some dishes didn't come out and sides were missed, but they were very friendly and helpful. I'd go back for sure.

Haven't been there for at least 12 months. Tonight - FANTASTIC and FLAWLESS. Meal brilliant ??'?
Steak cooked to perfection... Pepper Sauce... one of the best ever. Keep up your amazing work. Do you have a new chef????

Passing through Thornton for business. Called in here for a steak and Guinness pie. One of the tastiest pies I've had. Rick flavour, lots of meat and a large meal.

The guy behind the bar also a great publican. A lady left her lighter behind, so he gave her his own lighter to keep.

I'd recommend to others to pay a visit.

This review is for accomodations only. When booking I asked for a quieter room and I was assured that I was being placed in a quiet room towards the back. Instead I found out I was lodged beside a drinking balcony and directly above the 'quiet' band that would be playing 'only to midnight'. They were not and they did not.
So if you're into trying to sleep while grown men do their best impression of mentally handicapped people till 11pm on the balcony as a cover band bangs on past midnight beneith you in a 'non smoking room' that smells pervasively of cigarette smoke with a special corner near the bed head smelling specifically of body odor THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!!

Went to the imperial hotel (shenanigans) for dinner for Father's Day, not nice meals, very over priced, for what you get, wouldn't recommend. Five people all agreed, not one good meal or side. Should have stayed home and cooked our own. Won't be back

My friend and I enjoyed schnitzels here for lunch and they were delicious. The hotel is in a convenient position close to 3 hour free parking a short walk away. The meals were cooked beautifully and the staff were efficient and friendly. The facilities are very clean and the dining room seating is cosy and fairly private. There is more casual seating just down a few stairs and larger tables are catered for. They have specials nights throughout the week so it is worth checking their online menu and entertainment details online. Our meals and many of the others on the menu were reasonably priced and good sized serves.

Sunday of a long weekend, and after 70m waiting for our basic meals we got a refund and left.

Apparently they had a number of staff call in sick, but watching the kitchen staff taking their time wandering around the kitchen with no sense of urgency was incredibly frustrating. They apparently were able to stop in doorways and have chats about things while people were waiting.

Told several times are meals were coming up, then at 70 mins since order (2 burgers and a kids seafood basket) I asked again and said we needed to leave to be told meals would be ready in 8 minutes - that was the final straw, as obviously our meals hadn't been started!

Regular visitors to the area, I'm moving locally by years end, and I won't be back here for meals again.

Avoid if you are going with the hopes the vegan option is actually vegan. The menu online hasn't been updated and the only vegan option is a burger that is served with beef fat coated chips.... go figure!
Go elsewhere there are businesses happy to accommodate.
