We visited on a Saturday evening, rather confused that we had to wait on arrival for 10 minutes for our table to be ready as the restaurant was mostly empty, but a good excuse for a glass of Prosecco in the bar area! The food is exceptional here and our waitress very knowledgeable about the items on the menu as... More

The Gatsby never disappoints. The food is the best in Berkhamsted and the atmosphere is superb. It is a great venue for special events and the staff work hard to please. It is not the easiest bar in which to get served, as it is cramped, but the staff show initiative in serving at tables. The monthly Jazz brunch is... More

We visited twice with a week. The first was for lunch pre matinee at The Rex Cinema downstairs. We were a bit pushed for time but no problem as the service was excellent. The two course lunchtime menu with a glass of wine is great value. The food is beautifully presented and delightful. On the second occasion we went with... More

Have been meaning to try this place for a while having heard good things. All that I've heard was absolutely spot-on. Excellent food and service, lovely setting and will definitely be going back to try the Jazz brunch on a Sunday. Good value too, so give it a try.

The Gatsby brings something a bit different to Berkhamsted. We have been there a number of times often stopping for a drink and a snack before heading to the Rex. Can recommend it

The Jazz brunch a fine way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The impressive interior adds to the whole experience. A choice of 'a la carte' or Sunday roasts, with a live jazz band playing in the back ground. Fine food and attentive staff make the whole experience A pleasure.

Visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon and sat outside.Staff very accommodating with me wanting to change tables. We had the set 2 course menu for £12.95 which included a glass of wine which is excellent value for money. Food was good and we all had empty plates when finished.Only moan is that the table was a bit small for 4... More

We visited with friends for dinner. The soup, other starter & French fries were good but we did not think much of the lamb koftas. The deserts were oversweet. RMR

This used to be a derelict art deco cinema but was famously returned to use on the back of the fforts of a section of the community returning as a restaurant cum cocktail bar, smaller community cinema and set of flats from which someone profited handsomely. The Gatsby is an attractive place for an expensive drink. The restaurant has varied... More

This is a stylish place to eat being a tasteful conversion (no pun intended) of the foyer of a former period cinema. The staff are plentiful, polite and prompt with their service. The menu is recognisable as representative of what we have come to expect at the moment but the food quality is good and well presented. Even though the... More
