An unexpected gem in Chesham. Great music on a Saturday evening. My favourite place to sit outside for a drink in the evening with blankets and hot rocks. Richard is an absolute star!

When the food finally arrives, it's average and probably overpriced. The ambience of the area is great, but we have visited three times and each time there's no-one about to take our order. Twice we left after ten minutes and ate once (first visit). The food was good quality, but a little plain.

Went here for afternoon tea - had the most fantastic chocolate cake with cream & ice cream. Made my birthday! Proper earl grey tea too, and lovely surroundings in the courtyard. Such a welcome - stay as long as you like we were told. Just sorry that parking meant we couldn't!

The Drawing Room is a relaxing place to enjoy a leisurely drink and, if you want, tasty food! As a music venue, the price of a ticket is fairly reasonable, £25 to see 2 acts with a meal during the interval and a seat is included. I have been 5 times and have always experienced a good night. Richard, the... More

I have visited The Drawing Room on two occasions - for a coffee and on a live show night and it was an amazing experience. The place is wonderful and the caretaker, Richard, makes sure that everyone feels at home. The food was delicious and the atmosphere during the show was unique, just like a private performance for selected friends.... More

My Mum and I visited the Drawingroom last week, and we cannot recommend it enough! Exquisite food, fabulous setting and absolutely wonderful staff! It is in a beautiful, although slightly hidden, location and it is gorgeously decorated inside and out. Very quirky with lots of really beautiful pieces of art, it created a really fun atmosphere without feeling too cluttered.... More

The owner is a bit of an old-fashioned hippy and everything is earth-friendly. He promotes new music acts and houses a small art gallery. Chesham would be a poorer place without him and The Drawing Room. Go there!

It was a cold day, and we sat outside under blankets with the heater on and had delicious coffee and (gluten free for my coeliac niece) cake. Very hygge!

We have been meaning to visit the Drawing Room for sometime...we were not disappointed :) A quirky venue; the staff are friendly and welcoming; the food is delicious and locally sourced - I had the full English breakfast - and the music was brilliant.
