Richard has been the custodian of The Potters Arms for over 8 years now, before taking over The Potters Arms his background has been 25 years in the Independent Restaurant trade, working with fresh food, searching and building relationships with the finest suppliers in the area to make sure that the food served from the kitchen is consistently the best it can possibly be.
We have just built a terrace bar which will be open for brunch and crepes, coffees, Ice Cream, Slush Cocktails & Pizzas.

Bill the Head Chef at The Potters has come in and taken over the position and his idea is that The Potters Arms being a Classic British Pub, our Menu should replicate that with lots of homemade pub classics, however with his culinary skills he will introduce a Daily Specials Menu that will be superb quality.

Lovely pub restaurant and the food was great quality. I’ve only rated the ambience 4 star as we were the only ones in the restaurant. Would definitely go again.

Food very nice, unfortunately the service was poor. Had to wait over an hour after ordering to when our food arrived at the table only to find that one of our meals was incorrect and one of the side orders didn't arrive until we reminded the waitress. Also had to remind the waitress to bring the drinks we ordered. Still got charged the 10% service charge automatically added to the bill.

The Thai food was great. The crepes were average. A bit rubbery and they used bottled lemon juice rather than fresh which was disappointing.

We had the most enjoyable meal, sitting outside in the sun at "The Potter's Arms" yesterday. Staff were friendly, helpful, patient and very professional and the food was excellent, thank you.
The whole visit was easy, trouble free and enjoyable and the location is fabulous. Will definitely visit again. Thank you for very much appreciated warm and efficient customer service.

Very pleasant outdoor dining area. Main courses fine though not many I would choose myself. Eton Mess dessert, and Eton Mess crepes, strangely watery.

Excellent range of food - pizzas, crepes, burgers and traditional pub fish and chips, sausages, pies etc. Beer in good condition. Pricing closer to "pub" than "gastropub" level.
Lots of outdoor seating with umbrellas.

Excellent in the main, ambience was challenged as we were the only table so no indication either way hence a neutral, can imagine it would be good though.

Nice place and most of the food was of a good standard but service was really disorganised. All meals came out at different times only to find that they’d got the final one wrong. Meaning we had to wait for that one to be re-cooked and we all ended up eating at different times.

Service non existent. Waited ages for food order to be taken. Fish and chips the worst I have had in a long time. I don’t think the fish was fresh as it smelt and the texture was soggy. Chips OK but no salt on table. Also needed tartare sauce on plate. Very small piece of lemon. No vinegar just lots of horrible plastic sachets of sauce, mayonnaise, etc impossible to open with getting it all over your fingers. And why oh why is it felt necessary to put salad on a plate of fish and chips. Mushy peas horrible. What’s wrong with fresh peas?

Food was excellent. Service was good, very cold pub due to having all the doors open probably due to Covid so we just put coats on. Encountered a problem after taking payment. I paid by card for 5 of us so it was a fair amount of money and there was an issue saying the payment hadn’t been received their end. I showed them the receipt on my bank app so knew it had been debited my end. However we were just left at the table for at least 15 minutes not knowing what was happening. In the end my elderly parents wanted to leave so I went to find the manager who was on the phone to the card payment company. Still left there stood around. Not great as I left my parents sat on the car for a long time. All it would’ve taken is for someone to photograph my receipt and take my telephone number and we could’ve left without hanging around for 1/2 hour not knowing what was happening.
Still - great food and lovely long awaited meal out with the family.

The place itself is really pretty to sit outside and The food was absolutely amazing.. great choice, great price.
The only thing that let it down was the lack of customer service.
We got there and was served quite quickly initially,
But then it went downhill.. food came out at different times, there was quite a gap in between,
we weren’t asked if we wanted any more drinks, staff was nowhere to be seen to the end, they seemed really disinterested.. completely disappeared as time went on.
maybe it was just a bad time to go or they were having an off evening
We Will try again to see if it was a one off

We have eaten at this pub before and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, however, Friday lunchtime fell well below our expectations. The place was not hugely busy though we understood there was a private function happening. The service was extremely slow - it took well over an hour before the pizzas and crepes arrived, and that only after speaking to the waitress. If they had arrived quickly and been hot they would have been OK, as it was they were disappointing.

Business lunch, great quite place. Hadn't done my research and "Amersham" seems a bit of a stretch. Had the halloumi salad which was good although the lettuce was a tad on the soft and soggy side. Great atmosphere and service.

The work they have put in on renovations is so impressive, and the service and food range matches this effort. Perfectly sized portions, fantastic choices, delicious meal. You can have both pub favourites as well as more adventurous meals (I had gorgeous cajun spiced swordfish, and the cauliflower kung po starter was lovely). Servers were attentive and friendly. So pleased we opted for The Potters Arms this weekend!

This pub has worked hard throughout the pandemic to keep open. Their terrace out front is really lovely and it’s a great place to stop after a walk, have lunch/a drink.
Food was great.
