The Artichoke restaurant, Amersham

Our favourite local restaurant for special occasions is the Artichoke, situated in Old Amersham. Going into the old town feels like a special occasion in itself with its half-timbered boutique shops and centuries old coaching inns but add some spectacular cuisine into the equation and you’ve got something very special indeed. By a quirk of history Amersham nestles in idyllic Chiltern countryside while still being on the London Underground, at the very end of the Metropolitan Line.
