This is the second time I've been back to the Empress since the lockdown. Last week I was unsure how it would go, but I had such a great experience that I decided to do it again to watch the footy this week. Table service was great, food was at usual good standard and I felt really comfortable with the set up of seperated tables. Look froward to going back again!

Amazing food! Even better than we remember. We had chicken parma and fish and chips, so gourmet and everything cooked to perfection.
The staff were great, so welcoming and made the new ‘way of doing things’ very easy for us. So well organised and a great atmosphere as always with fire going.

We held a midweek networking lunch at the Empress. It was the perfect venue. Staff and service only too happy to help with whatever we needed. Had the dining room pretty much to ourselves so the noise we made didn't bother others and we weren't subject to noise from other patrons either. Food serves are generous and tasty.

Staff are super friendly and food was simply beautiful. My family can be a fussy bunch and yet there was not a noise except for the clitter and clacker of the cutlery whilst they tucked away at their meals. Really enjoyed our experience and tell those chefs, they did an outstanding job on quality and presentation and taste bud delicious!
