Every once in a while a business comes along that seems to perfectly fit a glaring gap in the market. Metro Lounge, the newest of the Loungers chain of cafe bars, which opened its doors in Amersham-on-the-Hill this week may well achieve just that. Given that the area has been bordering on going tee-total of late with the demise of most remaining pubs up the hill, I’m thrilled by the prospect of a decent social venue. Tilly and I popped in for brunch on its opening day to see what was on offer.
A new addition to Old Amersham’s line up of eateries, Cote Brasserie has taken over the former Chimichanga site, so it’s farewell Tex-Mex and hello modern european dining. We decided to pay a weekend morning visit to see how the newcomer compares with the other brunch options in Amersham and to check out its family friendly credentials.
