A restaurant underneath or rather part of the REX cinema building with a cocktail bar at the front. We ordered a martini before our meal when I asked what gin they had in the freezer. None so it was down to room temperature Hendricks. Starting from this point makes the making of a martini a bit of an up-hill struggle.... More

I spoke to the amazing chef Matt Salt, who ran through the menu and explained which of the meals would be suitable for me or that he could adapt. The meals he adapted for me were delicious! I was impressed that I could have dessert too as so often there is nothing I can eat. The waitress was excellent too.... More

Our choices were varied from Fish Chowder to stuffed breast of Chicken - all our party were delighted with the food. Presentation here is excellent and portion size... More

We had a fantastic sunday lunch - quality beef, well-cooked and seasoned vegetables and the home cooked breads are fantastic.... More

We held my Dads 90th birthday celebration at the Gatsby last Saturday. The staff were phenomenal, service, attention to detail & food were all terrific. We had a lot of help from the staff in planning this surprise lunch party over the last two months. When we arrived on the day, the restaurant was laid up superbly & the staff... More

Held our staff party at Gatsby this weekend and as always we were not disappointed. Nic and his team made the evening a complete triumph, food as always was exceptional. Staff are attentive and nothing is too much trouble. We keep coming back for a reason, thanks to all concerned.

With all the art deco glamour of it's neighbour, The Rex, an old school cinema; this is one show not to miss in Berkhamsted. The food quality is exceptional in comparison to other local restaurants and the only one of it's type in the area. The dishes are on the expensive side but well portioned. A touch salty for my...
