* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Part of the Gilbey gin empire, a “very cosy”, “slightly old-fashioned” bistro “with lots of nooks and crannies”, making it a “great choice for a catch-up with a friend or a romantic meal”. The menu offers “lots of English specialities” and – while critics say it’s “no longer seems to rise above average” – even they say it is rarely less than “solid”. The “interesting wine list” includes bottles from nearby Hambleden.

“A local favourite” with “low beams and cosy nooks”, this “gorgeous little restaurant in atmospheric Old Amersham” is “perfect for a twosome or a girly catch-up” and offers a “well presented menu of tasty food”. Owned by the Gilbey gin dynasty, it includes “an altogether different wine list from their very own careful selection”.

“No complaints at all” about this “consistently good all-rounder”, fusing a “lovely” interior (“understated, tasteful and relaxing”) and “wine from the owners’ vineyard”, with “food that’s always well-prepared”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
