My wife treated me to a most enjoyable lunch on Saturday St Patrick's Day. I had fish & chips which was excellent followed by Gilbeys delicious lemon tart. All nicely presented and with friendly and efficient service. Another couple at an adjoining table were also celebrating a Birthday and Gilbeys do make it into a special occasion with a chocolate and a candle.

An award winning dining destination in the centre of beautiful old Amersham, the Artichoke restaurant has been tipped for the top by critics, chefs (including Raymond Blanc) and, rather impressively, the Michelin Guide 2011. The traditional setting of Artichoke has been given new life with a slick contemporary country makeover in which comfort and style sit side by side, colours are muted and soothing and the beautiful features of the building are allowed to shine through, a part of the carefully considered d��cor. Chef and owner Laurie Gear oversees a refined modern European menu filled with charming additions including not only seasonal ingredients but foraged herbs, berries and flowers too and he and his team can be spotted hard at work in the open kitchen from the Kitchen Dining Room. Other spaces here at Artichoke include the glorious Garden Dining Room, opening out on to the bespoke herb wall and the Wine Room up on the first floor, leading in to the well stocked cellar and just right for sophisticated business dining. The perfect neighbourhood restaurant, Artichoke has certainly put Amersham on the map.
With a reputation to maintain Artichoke does it with flair. From the smiling greetings, happy clientele, quiet and professional kitchen brigade on full view through to superbly presented delicious food .We requested drinks that were not usual and they arrived quickly and were perfect. We have been here a few times over many years and if anything it is now even better than we remembered it. A lot of thought has gone into the menu compilation and the staff serving it were knowledgeable and described all the components of our dishes which added to our enjoyment. We chatted to adjacent diners who were also really impressed with the food and service and were also regulars.
Spotless cloakrooms even after a busy lunchtime and the wonderful petite fours were the crowing glory

In heart of the community. This traditional ale house and unique Thai restaurant is the epitome of a great country pub. The lovely old building oozes charm and class, while attentive staff deliver a warm welcome, excellent real ales and superb Thai food.
We stopped off after searching Trip advisor. The food was superb. Having visited Thailand a couple of times we know Thai food well so really chuffed to find a lovely pub that did authentic Thai food. We will be back.Thank you very much for the fabulous review. I’m delighted you had a great time at The Queens Head. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Megan and the team

Seasons café deli is privately owned busines born out of a love for good food and coffee. We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere and extensive menu, which we believe has something to suit everyone. Over the years we have built up a following of loyal customers from all over the country, frequently re-visiting for our welcoming, informal atmosphere. We pride ourselves on being the perfect place for a girly catch up whislt sharing a bottle of Prosecco or for holding a business meeting over a freshly ground, fair trade coffee. Seasons also welcomes well behaved dogs in the front room of the cafe, but ask that they are kept on a lead.
I came in for a cuppa and something to nibble on (the Mango Chia Flapjack was spot on) this afternoon after experiencing a miserable morning. The chappie behind the counter couldn't have been more upbeat, cheery and positive. What a joy, thank you for brightening my day.

We love our local Village Mangal - always a welcome and good food. Only reason I cannot give it five stars is that the canopy outside desperately needs replacing. It is mouldy and covered in bird droppings, which really puts us off - it can’t possibly encourage any new passing trade.
PLEASE REPLACE YOUR CANOPY AND BUY SOME NEW PLANT POTS!!

300-year old traditional Country Pub / Restaurant in beautiful picturesque olde worlde English village. Wisteria round the door, wooden and carpetted floors, real log fires, original beams. Private areas available for functions.
We tend to use this pub under unfortunate circumstances as it is very handy for the Amersham Crematorium and often used as a venue for wakes! It is however a friendly and visually attractive pub both inside and out. Our only experience of their catering has been at wakes but the quality of their buffets has always been excellent

A beautiful flint and brick old English inn, The Ivy House is right in the heart of the Chiltern Vale and renowned for its excellent food, real ales and extensive wine list. With quaint accommodation, it's also one of the best places to stay in the Chiltern Hills.Everyone gets a warm welcome at The Ivy House, and we pride ourselves on being one of the area's best child-friendly pubs. With baby changing facilities, outside Seating and enough garden for the kids to enjoy, this is a great spot for a family meal. Just 40 minutes from central London, we're surrounded by stunning countryside that provides a great escape from the city. Walkers, ramblers and lovers of the outdoor can enjoy the area's open green spaces - and then a great meal at The Ivy House!
Another great Sunday lunch at The Ivy House. Their nut roast dinner is lovely. The carrot and coriander soup was legendary, nice touch with the croutons. All the accompanying veg hits the spot too. Keep up the good work guys! See you soon.Thank you for your lovely comments

Met family for Sunday lunch. Good location for all of us with easy parking. Friendly welcome, excellent draught beer, impeccable service. All meals hugely enjoyable, portions a bit large for us but "doggy bags" provided. Superb value for money and I don't think I've ever had a better pub lunch.

Came here for the 1st time as we wanted to support local restaurants with more traditional food. Booking was easy and friendly by email. Being small, gets booked up a bit.
The greeting and attention was great from the beginning and advance information regarding dietary requirements remembered without fuss.
Food was excellent but expensive. From the experience we had here, it was worth it for a special occasion but not everyday dining. Thoroughly enjoyable though.
The only down side was, being small, it was noisy if other tables were a bit more vociferous/loud laughing! An intimate dining experience if quiet, but not if not!!
