Hawkyns Restaurant at the Crown

16 High Street, Amersham, HP7 0DH +44 1494958596

((((* British

We saw a review of the restaurant in a newspaper (possibly the Evening Standard), and decided to try it. We had a very enjoyable dining experience.
Minor issue: I had the fish & chips and the fish was a little too salty...........otherwise, an excellent dish.

From Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar, Hawkyns at The Crown Inn Amersham offers delicious modern British cuisine in a historical setting.

Centred around seasonal British ingredients from local suppliers, the menu offers a twist on classics, including wood pigeon, barbecue guinea fowl, and a modern spin on fish and chips. Desserts include toasted marshmallow with rhubarb ice cream and jelly, and chocolate tart with blackberry ice cream. Sunday roasts are also a firm favourite, and include roasted sirloin of White Park beef or roast pork belly with all the trimmings.

Serving hearty dishes in warm and welcoming surroundings, find The Crown Inn in Buckinghamshire on Amersham High Street, a 5-minute drive from Amersham Tube Station.

    Managed to get the last parking space at The Crown Inn (phew!). Really great customer service, came with a friend who had an injury and was moved to a more comfortable area. Had starters from the new menu which was mouth-wateringly delicious. The chicken was moist but I wish there was more of it. My social media photos would have looked better if the lighting wasn't so low in the evening (hint to the publicist). Will definitely come again, maybe try the lunch menu.

    We thought that the price for the meal was far too high for what we had. Small portions and mediocre ingredients. The service was good but we wont be going back. £96 without a tip for two courses, one bottle of water and two glasses of wine we considered excessive.

    The food was excellent and the service very good. My steak was cooked to perfection. The range of wines was good and reasonably priced. We were last in the restaurant but never made to feel that we were being rushed out, even if we were out staying our welcome. Thank you for making it a great evening for us.

    We visited Hawkyns for Sunday lunch and were really impressed. The quality of the food was great and the service and attentiveness of staff was excellent considering it was very busy.

  • (((** 4 May 2017 by James Whittaker from Amersham

    The food was nice, but not nice enough to justify the price unfortunately. I left feeling quite disappointed given the big name chef linked to the restaurant. There was no wow factor.

    Had a lovely evening here entertaining clients. The environment was beautiful and the service was excellent - swift, professional and polite. The food was delicious too. My only recommendation is that you add more vegetarian options.

    Work in progress! Food good but certainly not notable of association with Atul Kochhar's reputation. Attention to detail lacked with medium rare beef wellington served well done. Some dishes were more 'kitchen supper' than 'fine dining' and with main courses ranging from £20-£30 you would expect far more.
    Good atmosphere and service though. It's ok, but there are restaurants directly over the road that I would recommend first.

    We enjoyed the tasting menu, with wine pairings over lunchtime. It's hard to pick a favourite, as it was all just delicious, but the scallop dish was perhaps a cut above all the rest. Just incredible
