Imperial Arms / Chislehurst
The Imperial Arms in Chislehurst is a cosy warm and inviting hillside pub with two bars – ‘The Library’ and the ‘Catherine’. The latter is named after the mistress of Napoleon III who stayed HERE when he was exiled to Chislehurst in 1870! Although the pub is rightly very proud of their food - with lobster and steaks being specialities - the pub emphasised their commitment to real ale, with the addition of a fourth handpump in 2016 on which guest beers are provided. Time your visit right and you might get to join in the pub quiz night or enjoy some live music in the courtyard!
