Elephant and Castle Amersham Review


Spring is here! We’ve seen the sun shining bright, flowers blossoming and now we have longer days to take advantage of. This is a great opportunity to escape London and venture on out of the big city and breathe some fresh air!

If your struggling to find new places to go and don’t want to venture too far, why not try Amersham? Quaint town that gives off a warm country feel on the outskirts of London. Don’t let that stigma of Zone 9 put you off. It’s really not that far. If you’re lucky, jump on a fast metropolitan line and you’ll be there in the blink of an eye.


Situated in the centre of town is Elephant and Castle. A 17th century pub that has recently been refurbished and re-opened just 5 weeks prior. As you enter, you immediately receive vibes of a warm cozy environment. Continue on through the pub you find a beautiful conservatory which looks out into their lavish beer garden. As we were they in the evening, it was all lit up in twinkling fairy lights, and on a clear night the stars would shine brightly. Perfect place to enjoy a good meal and wash it down with a drink or two coming into summer.

There’s plenty to choose from on their menu, from burgers to pizza, salads to your general comfort food and if you can fit it in, dessert! Any 3 Starters are available at only £

Our recommendations is the loaded burger with a choice of fries or chunky chips, this too is a favourite among staff, topped with crispy bacon, onion rings, cheese and chipotle sauce. Good luck trying to squeeze in that first bite!

Pork belly roast was an easy choice to make and I definitely made the right one. Melt in your already watering mouth pork belly with red cabbage and mash. Just the type of feeling I was after. They also offer Sunday Roasts starting from £9.95. Is there a better feeling than knowing you don’t have to slave away for hours in a kitchen cooking and cleaning for that perfect roast!

If you have a beloved pooch you don’t want to leave behind, take them along. They too are welcome. Make sure you take in your soundings. We spotted the famous Roald Dahl on the wall along with some of his sketches from his stories including the Twits and James and the Giant Peach. We stumbled upon information that his place of residence and grave is situated only 8 minutes away.
