We went there to celebrate our daughter's completion of her A levels and end of school years. The staff were lovely and the service was excellent. This small but excellent establishment punches well above it's weight. The food was excellent. We had a great evening and left happy.

Amersham is an old stomping ground of mine. 'Back in the day', however, there was nowhere like the Artichoke to eat! A bit of research indicates it could be in the running for a Michelin star and there are certain aspects of it which will no doubt stand it in good stead, including the fact that it's 'a nouvelle cuisine...

We were staying over in Amersham for a friends wedding and wanted a nice place for our anniversary dinner. The reviews on Tripadvisor were very helpful in choosing The Artichoke and we have no regrets. Food was superbly presented, delicious, full of flavour and the portions were just right. Staff were attentive although prone to the odd mistake or two... More

I'm glad the place exists. The owners clocked there was clearly money to be had having a restaurant with ambitions of a Michelin star in such a well heeled area. Thing is, while all this frilliness works at somewhere like le manoir, here it feels a bit forced. Don't get me wrong, the attention to detail is great, it's single... More

We were treated to a visit to the Artichoke by our son after he read the fantastic reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was simply amazing and the service exemplary. The staff were so knowledgeable about each course and the huge selection of wines. The homemade bread rolls started the evening off well and the 3 of us... More

Description
An award winning dining destination in the centre of beautiful old Amersham, the Artichoke restaurant has been tipped for the top by critics, chefs (including Raymond Blanc) and, rather impressively, the Michelin Guide 2011. The traditional setting of Artichoke has been given new life with a slick contemporary country makeover in which comfort and style sit side by side, colours are muted and soothing and the beautiful features of the building are allowed to shine through, a part of the carefully considered d��cor. Chef and owner Laurie Gear oversees a refined modern European menu filled with charming additions including not only seasonal ingredients but foraged herbs, berries and flowers too and he and his team can be spotted hard at work in the open kitchen from the Kitchen Dining Room. Other spaces here at Artichoke include the glorious Garden Dining Room, opening out on to the bespoke herb wall and the Wine Room up on the first floor, leading in to the well stocked cellar and just right for sophisticated business dining. The perfect neighbourhood restaurant, Artichoke has certainly put Amersham on the map.
