16 High Street Amersham Buckinghamshire HP7 0DH 01494 721 541
The sister hotel to Hurley's Olde Bell, this coaching inn in central Amersham has recently had a stylish makeover at the hands of design guru Isle Crawford. Previously best-known for being the setting for Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell's first date in Four Weddings and a Funeral, it's now an altogether less chintzy and more chi-chi affair. Stripped floors, carefully chosen retro furniture, animal hide rugs and whopper four-posters adorn the bedrooms, which are spread between the main inn, the courtyard behind, and a couple of modern buildings to the rear. Food is a serious business here too, with an extensive menu of modern British dishes: Sunday lunches are deservedly popular. New to the kitchen this year is a Josper Grill – a kind of superheated indoor barbecue which grills without drying out the meat, resulting in mouthwatering steaks and burgers. A summer kitchen serves grills and salads in the cobbled courtyard in season.
