Excellent food, attentive and friendly service whilst being unobtrusive and professional at all times. From enquiry to delivery Gilbey's Old Amersham proved to be a great venue for a 50th celebration dinner for 10. David deserves special mention for looking after us all so well.

Treated here for a birthday meal, I was impressed, a good choice. Good menu, reasonably priced given the high standard, interesting small twists on standard fare: eg pork belly with quinoa and gooseberry compote, ham hock terrine with black pudding. There is little I would have changed, only minor matters: the terrine didn't look quite right on arrival (shaped, smooth, glazed) which I'm sure was intentional but for me detracted the fact that when cut into, it was a more familiar texture and tasted delicious. Also I think I prefer my crackling as crackling.
After the excellent food, the next best thing was the service, the young lady who served us was the perfect combination of pleasantry without familiarity, always seemed to be around if we needed something, but not hovering.
Amusing signage, for example regarding the over-zealous handcream dispenser in the loo.

We have eaten here a few times and recently as guests of friends.
The food was OK and the wine list was pretty good.
The issues we had were with the level of service, attitude and the prices!
If you add the 12.5% service charges on the bill it is just not good value in our opinion.
This is a medium range restaurant in a small country town and to charge 12.5% on what is an already over-priced menu and wine list takes the edge of the experience.
We would not return!

This visit was for our son's 21st birthday and for the first time we used the small private room upstairs. From the moment our party arrived the friendly staff put us at our ease and made us welcome. They were attentive and relaxed, without ever taking their eye off the small details. The room was cosy and well appointed and could have taken more people comfortably. The food, as always, was outstanding - succulent and tasty, just the right amount to be a treat without being too much or too little. Excellent evening all round.
