An elegant banquet venue in North Devon

With its riverside setting, country house atmosphere and exceptional cuisine, the Imperial Hotel in Barnstaple makes a great choice for a banquet venue or party venue. Whether it’s for a special dinner for a society, birthday celebration, anniversary or other special event– you can be sure that the dedicated and attentive staff at the Imperial will go out of their way to make your function a success.

Our talented chefs will prepare an amazing meal with fresh local produce, whether you would like a sit down formal banquet, a buffet or anything in between. Drinks receptions are also available.

The Arlington Restaurant, with its beautiful decor and chandeliers, is as impressive a setting as you could find anywhere. Or for smaller events, you can opt for one of our two private dining rooms, the Kingsley Suite and the Grenville Room. Both have their own distinctive character and make a very special party venue.
