We had been walking the Thames Path and found this by chance. The selection of globally inspired foods was excellent and tasty.

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...More

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...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!
