About The Imperial Hotel

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 3AP.

A largish hotel literally a minute's walk from Stroud railway station. It blends the original Coaching Inn character and period features dating back 200 years with modern comforts and an authentic Thai cuisine served alongside a traditional English menu. The bar also offers a range of wines, real ales and single malt whiskies. All 25 rooms are en-suite and equipped with a TV, hairdryer and tea coffee. A full English breakfast is available each morning. Stroud is at the heart of the Cotswolds surrounded by beautiful countryside and wooded valleys. The quaint town holds regular farmers' markets and boasts a bohemian feel with an abundance of cafes and galleries. Here you are not far from Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie country at Slad. The bar is straight off the street and has 3 hand pumps at least one of which regularly dispenses local Stroud Brewery products.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 5 different beers and tried 2 of them.
