Hope you all had a wonderful Xmas and New Year and thank you to all those who joined us here to celebrate, we’ve had a lot of fun and hopefully you have too.
Very excited about the plans for the new Court Yard Wine Bar and function room. My brother, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who is once again overseeing the refurb and décor is arriving soon and work is now underway after a new 2nd toilet was recently built and a new kitchen has been installed. I shall be charting its progress in pictures on Facebook and Twitter so Facebook is Imperial Arms and look for a picture of the pub with staff outside and twitter is Imperial Arms Pub if you want to follow us. The plan is still to open the middle of February. Should you be interested in holding a function there the capacity is 80 people for a function and 30 for a sit down meal.
This week our fun quiz with music and prizes is back tonight from 9 till 10.30. Should you wish to join us for dinner beforehand its best to book a table on 0203 605 7899 as it’s become a very popular evening.
As usual we are open Friday and Saturday till midnight, but as per our licensing laws, please be with us by 10pm. On Saturday the brilliant Suzie G will be back singing and playing her Sax from 8 till 11pm and on Sunday we have lunch as usual from 12.30 till 6pm (booking essential) and then a new highly recommended singer Jeff Collins, who guested a couple of songs recently, will be singing Soul and Swing along with up to date favourites and it promises to be another good afternoon with him from 5 till 8.30m.
We intend to have another Thames Boat trip on 23rd August to celebrate Alan’s birthday this year and have to commit to it by the end of January to secure the boat we want. This time we hope to have a much bigger boat holding up to 150 people on two levels one being a very big open deck. The price will be 40 pounds each and will include return coach from the pub to Greenwich Pier, 4 hours sailing up and down the Thames with a great DJ and this time a BBQ. There will also be a buffet back at the pub and a singer till 11pm so all in all a great day out. Please let me know if you would like to come along, I know its 8 months away but the company tell me I have to secure the boat I want for that day by end of Jan.
On a more serious note, we have 3 couples who are expecting babies imminently in Mill Place and they are continuingly having their cars blocked in over night. Obviously Xmas and New Year we have been busier than normal, but if you are parked in the middle of the car park and need to get a cab if you could please let us know, so we can find you another parking space, so as not to cause a problem to our neighbours at this special time.
Look forward to seeing you soon.
