We booked a table earlier this week to enjoy a drink and bar snacks before going to The Rex (cinema next door). The table was booked for 6.45pm and we ordered snacks five minutes later. After 40 minutes our snacks had still not arrived and I went to ask what was happening as the film was due to start shortly.... More

I had arranged a surprise meal for my daughter and her friends. We ordered and paid for drinks at the bar and after a very long time the drinks were finally ready. The other bar tenders kept getting in the way of the young lady who was serving us. By this time we went to our table, no time to... More

This place is amazing! the service and food was brilliant and even though I visited midweek and it was quiet there was still a lovely atmosphere. The waiting staff were attentive, helpful and professional and the food was delicious.

Visited a couple of weeks ago - Bar area nice and staff friendly. Meal was excellent - menu gave a good choice and food was well presented and very nice. Good drinks choice and very comfortable. Highly recommended, we had a great time and definitely very nice for a special occasion.

When we visit Henley upon Thames in the warmer months, there are always 2 MUST visits on the way home - The Boat (lovely Fuller's pub on the river) and pop in The Rex. On our last visit we tried The Gatsby for a change- we was not disappointed. My wife had the set menu (which I secretly wish I... More

Spacious art deco setting, very good staff and a chef who is inventive make The Gatsby a venue of excellence. London restaurants, with a few (and expensive) exceptions should visit it for ideas. A la carte dining is a joy and the lunch and pre-cinema menu at £15 for two exceptional courses plus a glass of wine is superb value.... More

Went to The Gatsby last night for a drink to celebrate a friend getting a new job. Bar staff alll very young and inexperienced judging by the confused, scared looks on their faces. I ordered a Sidecar which was poorly presented, definitely glass half empty rather than glass half full. It also tasted and smelled very strongly of lime, which... More

This place is something else - i wouldnt expect to find a London bar/ restaurant out here in leafy Berkhmasted. Cocktails were fantastic. Food off the a la carte menu well portioned, presented and very tasty. Not cheap, but ultimately good value for money. Service attentive but relaxed - All in all a lovely evening out and a great surprise.... More

This was a different dining experience as the venue is the site of the old cinema complex and the setting is beautiful Art Deco. After the meal you access the cinema next door for the film and are seated at tables at the lower level which was very good and very different. The restaurant itself was spacious with plenty of...

Another visit - second time this year - and another solid rather than great meal. There is no doubt that the venue and setting always make this feel like a treat and the service is generally excellent but there is a little spark missing from the food particularly when you take the premium prices into account.
