user reviews of the Squirrel, Amersham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

really enjoyed my sunday afternon visit to the squirrel. the location is fantastic, and the beer was excellent and the food reasonable

set directly opposite a cricket pictch, i would love to spend a summers day watching village cricket from the front garden with a pint.

the beers enjoyed were XT '4' and Robinsons 'Hoptimum Prime' which were two excellent pints on draught, and bottles of Punk IPA. excellent.

food was pretty good, no complaints.

service was great too, especially on a busy easter sunday. helpfull and friendly.

will be back when in the area.

Good pub. Recently refurbished and with a new covered deck and log burner, there is a lot more space inside and out to enjoy, whatever the weather.

Always friendly enough and their focus on being kid friendly shows though in most aspects of the pub (play equipment, menus, colouring in etc.) which is a boon to many but may not be as attractive to others. There is always the Hit or Miss around the corner (same owners, I believe) for any that need to get away from the roaming kids!

4 or 5 ales available, the two I tried (Side Pocket and another I've forgotten) were in decent condition and very drinkable.

Food is good too, not too expensive and the burgers in particular are well priced.

Can get busy sometimes on sunny days (that kid friendly appeal!) and they do have a few functions on which only exacerbates the problem. Get the feeling that the new layout is aimed at mitigating this somewhat as there is a bit more bar area now, including an outside bar.

Annual beer & cider festival weekend one of the best in the local area - gets very busy, although they do open another bar across the courtyard.

Not a good experience. Ignorant dis-interested revolting specimen that vaguely passed for a female behind the bar, that clearly didn't want to be there for the Sunday lunchtime shift. I watched her abrasive attitude over 3 seperate customers before she served me, and I received no better wither! Why do Pubs employ these people if they cannot at the very least look as if they want to be there. It's beyond me.....

Anyway, Courage Best, Black Sheep and that was it......poor selection. It had more to offer when it was controlled by Fullers some 5 years ago, and that's saying something!!

Pleasant local pub dropped into on a walk from Amersham - beer seemed ok. Pub garden is fine.

A nice pint of Brakspear Bitter or Pedigree on offer here. Quite a stripped back pub inside, with a line of tables perhaps for local walkers to stop for a sandwich or cheesy chips. When we visited was frequently only by a few locals, although we got chatting easily enough to the friendly barmaid. An open log fire down one end of the bar was welcome on a snowy day outside.
