|brilliant pub. nice dark wood feel to the inside. whilst it can feel a bit food orientated, there is a great atmosphere, and the area with the sofa and fireplace tucked around the back of the bar is perfect for a pint or two and to rest your feet.|
chiltern ale was £2.90 and the other pints were around the £3 mark, which in this day and age is very welcome. the britannia pale ale, which is berewed at the Royal Standard pub (same owners) is fantastic and only £2.50 a pint.
the service matched the excellent beers.
like the beers and the service, the food was brilliant. pizzas are better than most italian resturants.
whilst the traffic going by cant be helped, when its sunny the outside area is really decent too.
also the pub dog, barney is lovely. he roams the pub lookng for attention and maybe checking out if theres any stray chips under the tables.
will be back.

|Quite a pleasant pub with good real ales, but you get the impression that the food is the important thing and drinkers who are not eating are tolerated rather than welcomed and the staff are itching to close up as soon as the last diners have finished.|

|We've now moved to Coleshill, one of the benefits of which is we've had the pleasure of visiting the Harte & Magpies on many occasions now. |
The Cotswold Lagers have been perfect every time, the staff friendly and the general atmosphere has been relaxed and welcoming, with locals and visitors often engaged in conversation - a sign of a good pub I reckon.
The food is good and the portions are generous. Not the cheapest, but certainly not over the top considering the local going rate.
If you don't like dogs or are allergic to them then this probably isn't the place for you as they are pro-actively 'dog friendly' and this means you will inevitably share your visit with some enthusiastic canines.
While neither a hater nor a lover of dogs, this is probably the least attractive thing about the H&M to me - I'm always worried one of the kids steps in a 'surprise' outside - but fair play to them for promoting themselves in a novel way, and of course many will consider this a plus point.
My one improvement suggestion? Move the pub about ½ mile closer to the village so it isn't such a walk!

|Ah yes, the ever talented 'daverrm' with yet another quality posting. How is business up at the Royal Standard then Matthew, sorry...'daverrm'? Are there ANY lower levels to which you will not stoop to defend your 'business ventures'?|
I'll undoubtedly see you for 'Poetry Reading'....make sure that you raise your prices EVEN HIGHER that night...and don't forget to bung the BFP Reporters a few Pints so that they write another deceitful review.

|We stopped in at the Harte & Magpies not long after moving to the area. The beer was fine - can't recall what I picked and as I'm not really a bitter person (yet) I can't really comment on it. It was very pleasant though, certainly not mistreated.|
The food was plentiful and good and the general atmospere relaxed and friendly. The kids loved running around in the garden area and overall we enjoyed a very pleasant time there.
One of the better places in the Amersham area. Will definitely be back.
p.s. I rated higher than I would normally to try and offset bitterboy's vitriol. What an apt name!
