    My wife and I ate here on Saturday 22nd July at lunchtime. We are eaten quite a number of tasting menus, with wine flight, so are expectations were quite particularly as said menu at the Artichoke in Amersham has been superb the number of times we've tried it.
    First off there was no one else in the restaurant which was rather strange and meant there was no atmosphere. However, the waitress was excellent throughout the meal, made us feel very comfortable and made an extra effort to answer any questions we had.
    The Amuse Bouche, a spiced lentil soup, was very good as was the accompanying champagne. Ditto the following course of Chicken Terrine and Pea Pannacotta, though both were rather small portions even for a tasting menu.
    Unfortunately the next two 'main' dishes on the menu were very poor; not from a quality point of view but simply because they were so uninteresting. First up was cod and chips....I was expecting something inventive, not actually what we got which was...cod and chips, yes literally. A small piece of battered cod with bits of batter on top, one chip, more pea puree and a bland splodge of curry sauce. We couldn't believe it! Next up was a piece of pork belly with some soy sauce on tiny rice noodles. Hilariously this was served in a high sided cereal dish so it was nigh impossible to get to the food with the knife and fork provided...deeply disappointing. The final dish, lemon curd was excellent.
    One final point. All the wines were from a tap not bottle (we found this out after questioning why there was sediment in our white wine). I'm not in principle against wine on tap but what does worry me is that wines are not being chosen on the basis that they match the food, rather that they are available in the hotel bar on tap!
    I'm sorry to say that the restaurant has a long way to go if it's to rival the Artichoke for food, especially as the prices are eye wateringly expensive for what you receive.

    Overall it was very good. I was disappointed that the sea bass was not available and we had the sea bream instead. It wa overlooked. Other than that everything was fine. The waitress was excellent.

    Dishes do not look complete
    Shocking reply from the chef that he could not do a toast for a beef tartare starter...
    Really disappointed

    Went to the restaurant for my girlfriends birthday and we both had the pork belly. Our food was fantastic and the wine that was recommended to accompany the food was delicious. Our dessert was the lemon curd and that didn't let us down either and was great. All round brilliant little restaurant, would highly recommend.

    The room was bang on trend but lacking customers. The kitchen was clearly trying hard, but the front of house was friendly but not well trained. This is a management issue and is not the fault of the front of house. The early dinner menu was not appealing so we chose from the A La Carte.The food was good but certainly not worth the price. If you are going to charge £28 for a steak it should be exceptional not good. Desserts were good. My advice, if you want a really good steak go to The Three Oaks in Gerrards Cross, otherwise go over the road to Gilbey's where the food is about the same price, maybe not such an adventurous menu, but it will have more ambience and the whole experience will be faultless.

    We had a lovely and relaxing lunch at Hawkins Restaurant! Cozy and quiet setting in addition to excellent food and wine. We highly recommend this restaurant!

    The food was good together with the service. We had the tasting menu and this was clearly a new menu as staff were not aware of a vegetarian option. The vegetarian tasting menu could have had a little more variety but still was good. There was an error on the bill which they swiftly adjusted. In reality these issues were minor. Considerable effort went into making the meal and menu and delivery and it was appreciated.

    Very limited menu
    Carrot soup was tasty
    Fish and chips - chips very dark brown -
    Almond cake dry and bitter taste

    A lovely tasty meal from the set menu. We enjoyed every course and having chosen different options in each course were able to try each other's . All were enjoyed by us both. Suprised not to be able to order a soda and lime.We enjoyed the bread but had not ordered it so were didn't expect to see it on the bill. The happy birthday plate was a lovely addition thank you. The ladies on the next table were quite noisy l didn't need to hear about their children's travel sickness while l dined but realise there is little a restaurant can do about this when tables are quite close
