Imli restaurant says thanks to customers before closure

FINAL SERVICE Imli will close on March 11

SOUTHBOROUGH’S long-standing Imli restaurant is set to close its doors for the last time this month, with its farewell night featuring an ABBA tribute, after landlords put up the rent.

Imli explained that money was the issue, telling customers on social media: “[The] landlord has put our rent up from 60k to 100k and also with the rising cost of living, we are left with no choice but to close because it is unsustainable with that level of rent and rising cost.”

Customers can still book for the ABBA Stars night on Friday (March 10) before the London Road restaurant closes on March 11.

The restaurant was previously The Weavers, which in an earlier planning application for the Grade II-listed structure revealed that the building was likely to be hundreds of years old.

“The original building is probably a 16th-century Wealden Hall Farmhouse, typical to areas of Kent. Its original structure would have been a full timber frame, with a thatched roof,” said the heritage statement in 2017.

Bookings for the ABBA Stars farewell tribute night can be made on 01892 522 550 or by visiting:
