The perfect place to unwind with good friends and delicious food and drink

The  Terrace Lounge or the Terrace at the Imperial Hotel, Barnstaple, make a perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee, a light lunch, Devonshire cream tea or an after-dinner coffee or liqueur. The Terrace Lounge opens up onto the Terrace, so you can easily step outside on a fine day or a balmy evening.

The Terrace Lounge also leads through to the charming Tower Suite, which was the sitting room of the original Victorian family home.   It retains a very special warm and cosy ambience as well as a view of the nearby Albert Memorial Clock Tower. The Clock Tower theme is carried through all the prints in this delightful room.

Magazines and newspapers are available for you and the friendly staff at our 4 Star hotel will make sure you have everything you need.

Vintage afternoon tea indulgance

The traditional Afternoon Tea should be treated as an event and here at The Imperial, we make no exception. Served in our Terrace Lounge, enjoy the linen dressed tables, beautiful floral displays, cosy arm chairs and sumptuous surroundings

Start off by choosing either one of our loose leaf teas, fruit infusions or speciality coffees. To compliment, there are delicious freshly made finger sandwiches, an irresistible selection of cakes and pastries and lastly warm homemade scones

To give that extra sense of tradition, our Afternoon Teas are served with fine vintage crockery.

To make the event even more special add Sparkling wine or Champagne.

We will look forward to welcoming you to enjoy a memorable afternoon tea with friends or relatives like no other in the Barnstaple.
