What a fabulous lunch from the Lunch Tasting Menu - every course was excellent but would pick out the smoked trout and the pork belly with mushroom sauce and pappadelle which was sensational. We paired it wit the wines flight - again all worked really well - esp loved the unoaked Malbec with the pork.
We only moved to the area 2.5 years ago and somehow had missed this restaurant. Service was first class - relaxed but precise , overall great value for money. Definitely will be back.
Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We loved every mouthful of this amazing sensory experience. The tasting lunch scored 10 out of 10 every course from all of us paired with exquisite service. Thank you Artichoke - we look forward to returning.
Came in for a lunch tasting menu for our anniversary. The food was delicious, seriously delicious, and was fairly good value for 5 courses. The artichoke and pork belly in particular were amazing. The staff were attentive and lovely, even swapping out a menu item for me and bringing us a little dessert surprise. It's in a quaint little town with parking nearby. Great experience and would love to return sometime.
Some of the best food we have eaten in a long time highly recommend
Very friendly service. Wonderful food.
Amazing food, matched perfectly with the wine flight. We enjoyed the six course tasting menu and found each offering absolutely superb. We would return every week if finances allowed.
Fabulous! We had the Taster 6 courses and it was delicious. The service was excellent and we will definitely be back bringing more friends as we loved it. Thankyou.
I have visited the Artichoke 3 times, and have enjoyed each occasion. This time I took my husband for his Birthday, and he thought it was the best meal he had eaten out outside London. Highly recommend the Artichoke Restaurant, the food, wine and service are excellent!!
Great place, great food - wonderful lunch tasting menu - worth the extra. Staff are very friendly and attentive and are perfect representatives of the restaurant. A perfect place for a date meal to relax and chat whilst enjoy the food and wine.
An amazing dining experience. We had the 6 course tasting menu & wine flight and enjoyed every morsel! The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating to my gluten free/no seafood diet. It was my birthday treat and they made it very special. Highly recommend!
The ambience & service were old fashioned and a little cold, but the tasting menu was excellent!
We notified the restaurant about a special occasion (25th Anniversary) & therefore requested special seating. We were next to the staircase & kitchen. They did however present us with a beautifully decorated sweat plate.
We had a phenomenal meal at Artichoke on Saturday - the food was exceptional, lovely and attentive service, and a fantastic sommelier who introduced us to some delicious new wines. Thank you - we'll be back :)
Absolutely outstanding meal from start to finish. Did the 8 course tasting menu with wines and it was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff were lovely and had a fantastic meal from start to finish!
I hadn't realised that the meal choice would be between two tasting menus only. The food was beautifully presented but for me, not exceptional - no 'absolutely delicious' comments to make. Everything tasted good and competent, but nothing remarkable. Foody friends of mine who highly rate the place would no doubt disagree! Fantastic service, friendly and professional.
A lovely evening with a very refined menu. We will be back
Not often that I go to a restaurant and find that it performs perfectly on every front. Nice ambience, great service and excellent food. What's not to like !
Definitely recommend The Artichoke. Excellent 6 course Taster Menu.
Great birthday dinner for my husband.
Such a delicious beautiful meal, faultless! We will certainly be back
We had the set lunch menu which offered only two choices of starter, mains and desert. The menu choices were unique and interesting. However i felt in the service I was pressed to consider the tasting menus which were much more expensive, and I was pressed to order more wine than I was comfortable with. The wine list was outstanding if you could afford it. However choice of wine by the glass was in my view too limited.
Fantastic vegetarian tasting menu, really good wines at reasonable prices and very attentive (but not over-bearing) staff. A gem in Amersham.
8 course tasting menu - all dishes wonderful,especially enjoyed the cod dish and beetroot sorbet.
Warm and friendly service but not too intrusive.
We were glad to note that Wine and champagne by the glass were served to us on the generous side of correct measures.
The prices mean that this is a special occasion restaurant for us and we will look forward to our next visit.
Everything was wonderful, the food, the service and the experience. Will definitely be returning.
Perfect for business or with your partner. Plenty of parking nearby too..! So worth travelling from a distance for a great meal with exceptional service.
Beautifully presented, extremely friendly and welcoming staff and exceptional food. Never disappoints. We are so fortunate to have this absolute gem of a restaurant on our door step.
Really disappointing . Service hit and miss - no thought for dinners.
Food decent - but certainly not worth the £££ - for the £90 a head- find somewhere else - sorry but being totally honest .
The food here is well executed, with some inventiveness and, at £60 for a 6-course tasting menu, quite good value. Unfortunately, the service is not up to the standard of the food. Conversations were frequently interrupted to provide unnecessary descriptions of the food or to try and push more bottles of wine and water. Having said that, the restaurant is quite quiet, allowing conversation (when the staff leave you alone).
A really outstanding restaurant with a great atmosphere and service. Somewhere for a special treat. Great tasting menu with 6 out of 7 dishes a hit in the last visit.
Went on a Tuesday and had the six course tasting menu. The whole experience was lovely, the staff were very attentive and helped suggest a lovely bottle of wine when we decided against having the wine flight. The food was utterly delicious and we didn't feel over faced at the end. Have been here a few times now and can't wait to go back.
What a gem! The food was amazing and the wine pairings fabulous. We went because we were staying in Amersham, but, given the quality, I would definitely make the drive for another fabulous dinner!
Alot of care is put into this food, flavours and presentation. A special place to eat which feels like a proper eating experience
Great restaurant, food was fantastic backed up with outstanding service.
Fantastic atmosphere, food was beautifully presented and delicious. Great service...what a great place to spend our Ruby Wedding Anniversary.
One of my favourite local places. Ideal for a special occasion because the attention to detail is spot on. The value for the taster menu (6 or 8 courses) is extremely good. The flavours are sublime. All in all top notch experience.
Delicious five course lunch tasting menu, well paced, sensible portion size, and, in comparison to central London very good value at £38.
Highly recommend this restaurant. We had the 5 course lunch tasting menu with wine flight. Great value, incredible food and the staff were amazing. They even swapped a dessert from a different menu so I could try the cheese souffle. The sommelier was lovely and knowledgeable. An amazing lunch for a Saturday afternoon.
Outstanding dining experience. We had the tasting menus, each course beautifully presented and absolutely packed with flavour. Divine!
Staff couldn’t do enough for us!
Food was delicious!
Can’t wait to go back!
Lovely small restaurant. Excellent service and delicious food. Wine list prices a little too biased to the top end.
First class restaruant and really good value. However, £11.00 plus 12.5% for two cups of coffee & 4 small sweets is excessive!
