Great Food!

I have lived in the vicinity of this restaurant for nearly 25 years but this was my first visit. I decided to try it for Sunday lunch. After a bit of frustration in the car park trying to sort out the issue of whether or not I needed to Pay and Display (not on a Sunday apparently) I made it... read more

I've had good meals in the past at the Ethorpe and always wondered about those persistently bad reviews from others. Accordingly, I gave them a good review in the past. Well, now I understand. Went again recently and virtually the entire experience was atrocious - painfully slow service, poor food, harried management - a complete vindication of what others post... More

Visited the Gerrards Cross for a meeting, and stayed at the Ethorpe. The staff and service was excellent and the manager was very helpful. He could not have done more for me. I have since then moved to the area and will be using the Ethorpe again in the future!

I came here for dinner with my sister and brother in December. The service was great, the food was amazing and the wine was very good. The menu caters for everyone and to be honest I've never had a bad meal here.

Food good, service was friendly and efficient. Some of the party were not impressed with the £2 charge to park (even though refundable against the bill) - it doesn't make visitors feel welcome.

I have been visiting the Ethorpe hotel for many years together with my English family who live nearby and thoroughly enjoy the cosy pub atmosphere in the restaurant. The food is typically English and good, and there is a good selection of beer and ale. The service is friendly and efficient, and during my last visit just after Christmas, the... More

I recently visited Ethorpe Hotel for dinner with friends. The food was great and really reasonably priced. The portions were of a good size and the service was great. The Christmas set menu offered a good selection of dishes to choose from as well.

We ate here close to the Christmas holidays. The seasonal menu included traditional British holiday fare and was delicious. Even though the restaurant was crowded and had some large parties, the service was excellent.
