Hawkyns Restaurant at the Crown

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

((((* British

Very good overall, some dishes quite highly priced but all full of flavour and quite unusual in their composition and style, which was enjoyable. Service was generally good, although clear the odd inexperienced server and an expensive red wine was served much cooler than would have expected.

A transformed coaching inn in the Buckinghamshire town of Amersham, Hawkyns Restaurant at The Crown Inn offers trusty gastro pub fare and a cherry-picked bar stock. Filled with weathered floors and statuesque inglenook fireplaces, the charming dining room leads out onto a quaint cobbled courtyard. A cornerstone of the community, The Crown Inn bakes its own bread, pulls local ales and fires up the Summer Kitchen's coal-fired barbecue when the sun shines.

    Great atmosphere and great food. Lovely way to spend a Saturday lunchtime.

    Overall very pleasant. Initial service was excellent. Then it was very inattentive and several times we tried to get service for extra drinks/more water etc.....we probably would have had more if the waitress was more communicative. Loved the guinea fowl and the chocolate tart. Goats cheese mousse was not a strong enough flavour to match the bbq figs...Ambience was very quiet and lacked something despite it being full....I liked the simple table layout/cutlery and quirky serving plates....would try again at some point.......

    Fish n chips like I've never had it before, absolutely delicious. Everything was on the button, the service, the drinks, the food all very very good

    Good food, great location and a lovely ambience. Service was good but a little slow at times however we put that down to the fact it is recently opened and would definitely return.

    We had the taster menu. It was good, tasty and extremely well presented. The textures were amazing. The combinations of hot and cold within the dishes were also appreciated.
    The service was 'spot-on'. Everyone was very attentive and was able to provide explanations when required.
    We will be back.

    Interesting menu, but did not quite deliver. Good food, but did not quite up to our expectations given restaurant owners pedigree.
    Given the local competition not sure I'd chose again.
    Charming service but not quite attentive enough. Maybe early days, as restaurant only open for four weeks.

    Three of us booked to dine at Hawkyns. We were welcomed by a friendly waitress, sat down at a table laid for three, rather than four and one set of cutlery removed. Service was steady and we were never left waiting for anything. The restaurant was full whilst we were dining with a good variety of people. The food was excellent.

    Main courses were delicious. Pudding a little disappointing, cheesecake wasn't a cake just cream with sauce and biscuits on top. Staff were lovely but didn't need to keep topping up water and wine so frequently.
