    Our expectations for a dining experience at Wyven was very high , based on previous numerous occasions dining there. Not to be repeated however. We very much looked forward to breakfast by the street window on the first morning - not to happen despite a confirmation for our advanced reservation. We were referred to a restaurant down the street owned by the same organization. Our advanced reservation request for dinner on night two was confirmed. Not to happen. We were relocated to the adjoining pub. At the arranged time for dining we arrived at the pub location only to find it fully occupied. When we reported our predicament at the reservation desk we were delighted to learn that we had been reassigned to the original location. Several menu items were not available. Second choices became the default. After a long wait for service we were told there were sudden staff issues. Food was substandard. Ambience was the only saviour. Breakfast on morning two was back to expectation.

    Both an afternoon snack in the bar and an evening dinner at the Wyvern were wonderful. The food and drink were excellent, and service was so good and friendly that we even asked the name of the bartender (Asbel) who had made a special order martini and also waited on table. He and a colleague waitress (whose name we didn't get) made the meal perfect - helped along by its very attractive and historic setting at the Kings Arms.

    Lovely restaurant with great service, I had made a few requests as a member of our party has mobility issues & these were accommodated. It was a birthday celebration & a beautifully presented dessert with candle was given to the birthday girl.

    I booked a table in the restaurant for three people on Thursday 23rd May. On the day of the booking I received an email saying that they had a large party in the restaurant so they had moved us to the bar area. I said that was no problem. However when we arrived at the bar they said there was no food being served in the bar and they had not been told of our booking, no alternative offered. So we had to go somewhere else. Terrible customer service. Would not recommend.

    The restaurant was nice, and the food good, but the service was incredibly slow. We were given a free glass of wine as compensation, but it spoiled what should have been an enjoyable evening.

    Unfortunately, on the day we booked to eat - Mothers Day - the restaurant had three staff absent. This led to a dreadful experience on what should have been a memorable occcasion. The two staff left to do all the service were great and deserve huge praise for attempting to salvage what they could from an impossible situation. But the kitchen has no excuse for not serving pre-booked/pre-paid food that included gluten free options that were just not delivered. Yes, the restaurant refunded in full the cost of the meal but the special occasion cannot be replaced and no further compensation was offered.

    The food was lovely as was the service and staff. The only thing was, it was a bit cold in there for my friend and I.

    Hi Elisabeth, thank you so much for your review! We're sorry you were a little chilly - we would usually have our fire lit but we're having some maintenance work to our chimney at the moment! We hope to see you again soon! Daniella and the Old Amersham Hotels team

    The restaurant was a great find, I had previously only eaten at the pub, which is also great. The staff were welcoming and the service was superb. The atmosphere, food and details were lovely. I look forward to visiting again soon.

    Food was very good, service was a little vague. Ambience was a little quiet, perhaps some background music to make it less awkward when the restaurant is empty.

    This was my first time at this restaurant but it will not be my last! It was really good. We had booked an early dinner so were the first in restaurant and it was cold and they arranged for a little heater to be put near our table which was fantastic. Food was delicious - I had pate to start which was lovely, my guest had the soup (which they found a little under seasoned but that was easily remedied). We then had the burger and the chicken and both were delicious. good sized portions but not enormous. Will definitely be back

    Very poor service very slow! Food poor and very expensive for what was offered. Beef no horseradish! Pork very skimpy portion no crackling just fat! No apple sauce etc Very disappointing for a Sunday lunch !

    We live close to this restaurant and have dined there on a number of occasions. This week was the best experience so far. The menu is not extensive and leans towards gastro pub but what we had was well cooked, hot and tasty. The waitress was attentive and helpful. It was a weekday evening and quiet, but would happily go again.

    Good food but dreadful service, 30 mins from time of order to soup starter arriving. Mains arrived at same time as starter. 2 plates cleared eventually by staff and 3rd plate left. Desserts took 20 mins to arrive after ordering. Had temerity to try and charge 12.5% service which I naturally rejected.

    For a quiet Tuesday (Halloween) night, the cosy restaurant was quite busy! We received very efficient & friendly service and lovely food! The chicken dish which I had ordered was unavailable, but I was given a very good alternative!

    We were greeted warmly. Our lovely wait lady was American and happily ‘translated ‘ chips for our two American guests ! She was attentive without being intrusive. Our drinks waiter was equally good. We all loved our selection of dishes.

    A bit disappointed with the small selections of puddings, it would have been good to have a wafer of some type with the icecream

    I made an online booking and this was accepted and confirmed. On the day, I telephoned to advise we would be running a little late. They said that they had a private event that day and were not accepting normal restaurant bookings. They apologised as the restaurant should have telephoned to inform us. We were visiting Amersham and had to find another venue at short notice.

    Food was disappointing, meat very chewy, burger pink on inside burnt on the outside. A lot of the food was burnt. This was meant to be our anniversary meal we got married at the kings arms 6 years ago and sadly I won’t be returning any time soon. Shame.

  • Ian G.1 review

    17 August 2023


    No staff in the restaurant when we arrived so we had to go in search of someone to serve us. We were told that several of the menu items were unavailable and when we asked what the 'specials' were we were told there were none. Waitress was very offhand. She brought the bottle of wine unopened so took it away to open it instead of doing so at the table. Took ages to return. Presented the bill without the 10% discount for hotel residents.

    Food was disappointing. Knew it was Traditional Pub Food which is fine but my Chicken burger (or a couple of goujons it turned out to be) was very over cooked. Only one chef on so quite a wait which they did warn us about and we were not in a rush. Waiting staff very pleasant and courteous though.

    The food was Luke warm. Gravy was added to my pie which I dislike!

    The food could not be faulted but there was no atmosphere in the dining room because we were the only diners.
