I’m so thrilled to be writing this post right now because I’m very excited about The Little Black Gallery‘s second home at The Imperial Arms.

Tamara Beckwith and Ghislain Pascal have teamed up with Iain and Amelia Heggie to bring us some of the best photography in London as well as the best street food in association with Eat Street. Yes, that’s right, the street food scene has moved West!

Last night was the launch party to celebrate this fantastic collaboration and all I can say is hats off to The Little Black Gallery for spearheading this venture. Why?

Well, I’ve always thought The Imperial Arms was a missed opportunity. I’ve tried many times to give it a chance but it’s never won me over until now. What’s changed my mind?

I love the attention to detail …

And of course, that means the photography which adorns the walls …

This pub now oozes style whilst at the same time, it is very inviting …

And as for the food? A big win!

The Bowler, which specialises in meatball dishes, will be serving up on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings whilst other members of the Street Food conglomerate will be setting the menu on Friday and Saturday nights.

I tried a couple of The Bowler’s dishes and I could instantly see myself coming back for more. The meat was both succulent and very tasty: real melt in the mouth experience that tingled the tastebuds.

I also crept upstairs to watch The Bowler in action as each meatball burger was handcrafted with plenty of care and attention. Very impressive.

And the result?

Very, very, good!

And who would have thought that a meatball could be made up in so many different ways?

What’s so exciting about The Little Black Gallery and Eat Street working together is that I’ve been looking for something with a bit of edge for a while on the King’s Road. You know, that element of sexiness and deliciousness under the same roof?

Well, I’ve found it at The Imperial Arms and if you follow me on Twitter, just don’t be surprised if you see quite a few photos coming from here! This pub is so on my radar now.
