Seasonality appears to have taken pride of place over local sourcing and provenance of ingredients, but happily there still some chefs who manage to combine both factors and at Artichoke this is certainly the case. The tasting menu no longer offers a choice of main, which always seemed to us something of a throw-back, and every course was in perfect harmony with the rest to make up an extremely well-balanced ensemble. Super home-made focaccia and whipped butter preceded a chilled melon soup amuse-bouche which set us up for some brilliant, tenderly charred octopus, with oyster leaf adding a touch of minerality to the dish, and this was followed by poached, charred and pickled elements, in particular some beautiful beetroot, contrasting with green vegetables and brought together by a super dill emulsion. Outstanding foie gras with tayberries and toasted rice for the crunch brought us to a fish stew (or bouillabaisse) with classic fish, brill and John Dory, highlighted by pickled fennel, saffron potatoes and an excellent rouille. The main dish was local duck which exhibited exemplary flavours and was notable for its black garlic dressing. Three desserts may seem a bit much, but each contained just enough perfection to make you want more. Macerated blueberries with an excellent digestive biscuit crumble, an accent of lime, and viola leaf chiming in with white chocolate mousse brought us swiftly on to one of the all-time ultimate indulgences of strawberries and chocolate, lavender meringue, strawberry crème pâtissière and buttermilk sherbet strawberry soup. We finished up with a feta medita, the stupendous baked apricot backed up by intriguing puffed mustard seeds.

La Petite Auberge

12/10/2018: Sad to say that despite living within 2 miles we had never visited La Petite Auberge before - our neighbour recommended it and it lived up to his views. The meal was excellent and service just right. The decor is plain and somewhat 'cold' in feel - as the only ones there on a Wednesday it did lack atmosphere.
02/01/2019: Small high quality resturant. Delicious french cuisine, with unhurried but efficient service. Only drawback is lack of car parking.

Cote Brasserie - Amersham

18/12/2018: Been here a few times and never been disappointed. Being so close to Christmas it seemed extra busy, which slowed up the service a bit but not seriously and we were in no hurry. The staff are friendly and efficient. The menu has lots of choices with classic French dishes like Coq au Vin and French Onion Soup as examples. One of our group is gluten intolerant but they couldn’t have tried harder to deal with that. All but two of the Starters and all of the Mains on the extensive Christmas fixed price menu could be served Gluten Free. The food was good quality and sensibly priced. Two courses each and a bottle of wine between four cost £29 per head including service, which we all thought was good value. You can eat more cheaply, equally you could spend more. Parking is in the public pay car park about 100m away or in the Tesco superstore another 200m further away. Overall, an enjoyable lunch and we will be back!
