Featured Amersham Restaurants
1. Artichoke French restaurant in Amersham 9 Market Sq - HP7
“Laurie Gear and his team never fail to delight in this French fine dining establishment”: a “small and intimate” haunt in a characterful part of Old Amersham, where “the best seats are downstairs by the kitchen where you can witness how hard and skilfully the chefs work”. For many years now, the opinion has been widespread that its “impeccable” cuisine and “warm and welcoming” service were being inexplicably ignored by the tyre men, but in October 2019 Michelin finally gave way and gave it its long overdue recognition with the award of a star.
2. Hawkyns by Atul Kochhar Indian restaurant in Amersham 16 High Street - HP7
“Outstanding food in a lovely setting” again wins praise for celeb chef, Atul Kochhar’s Indian take on British food at this ancient, beamed Elizabethan coaching inn on the high street (which was one of the locations in ‘Four Weddings’). But once again, its ratings are held back by the odd reporter who’s unconvinced: “after several attempts wanting to believe, we’ve concluded it falls short overall”.
3. Gilbey’s British, Modern restaurant in Amersham 1 Market Sq - HP7
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.
4. Tom Yum Thai restaurant in Amersham 101 Sycamore Road - HP6
Homely Thai delivering solid, good-value noodles and curries – and which is thus well-loved locally, so you’ll need to book ahead for Friday and Saturday nights.
5. The Green Grocer British, Modern restaurant in Amersham 91 High Street - HP7
“A great little café” in Amersham Old Town, with “fabulous salads and cakes” and other dishes that are “authentic and well-priced”. It recently went vegan, and is one of a small group with three outlets locally (you can still eat meat at 15 The Broadway) and there’s also a branch in Gerrards Cross.
6. The Crown Inn restaurant in Amersham 16 High St - HP7
Now trading as Hawkyns - Atul Kocchar's latest venture (named after East India Company's Sir William Hawkyns) See separate listing for "Hawkyns"
