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.

    My partner and I visited Hawkyns for the first time last Sunday (16th April) after I read an article in the April addition of Olive magazine. The meal was excellent. The starters were really light, fresh and spring-like. We both had plaice for main course which was lovely although our vegetables took a time to arrive (5-6 minutes) which was a silly blip in the otherwise very good service. We had the cheese afterwards and I would have liked to have known more about where the cheese was from but the waitress didn't know anything other than the names. She was sweet and friendly but I would have liked to have known a little more detail. The wine list was extensive with some interesting options. It was lovely to see some English sparkling wine on there too. We will return!

    Very average. We've been waiting for someone to come and sort out the food at The Crown for ages. The opening of Hawkyns promised much but just doesn't deliver. The food is uninspiring for the price. The fish in their take on fish and chips was cooked OK, but sat on a tiny slither of pea puree. Sides turned up late. Treble cooked chips were deep fried pretty much all the way through. Service was scatty. It just doesn't add up to somewhere you'd want to rush back to despite the ambience of the building and Amersham being a bit of culinary desert. Shame. It may get better. I hope it does.

    As this is a new restaurant, we wanted to support it and booked in early. We checked the menu on the website which stated there were less options on Friday and Saturday (strange !), so we booked for a Thursday. On arriving we had a drink in the bar, it was empty, probably not helped by the rather cold atmosphere. The refit and furniture is not great, bit of a waste in this great old building. There was a choice of two draught bitters, both were off ! Apparently they had shoved the barrels around as 'the cellar is too small'. Only option for me was a red wine, it was a large but £10 was steep. We went into the restaurant to discover a limited and quite unexciting menu, not the one on the website. We were told the website was wrong and needs changing (we looked at it 3 weeks ago). By this time we'd had enough and made our exit. (The manager was very polite and tried to help). A real shame as we had high hopes.

    Not enough seating in the bar area whilst we waited for our table. Nice long bar - where's the stools?! Think we were forgotten about as I had to ask if our table was finally ready at 20:22. (It should have been ready at 20:00). Staff very friendly, especially the waiting staff, Spanish lady in particular. Starters took almost 5 minutes to arrive after one placement had been made. After that, all Brill!!! Food very very good as indeed all the courses. Will be back without question. Sort the seating out too in the dining area. An assortment of different height chairs wasn't quite right.
