AN AMER­SHAM pub is open for busi­ness once more with a brand-new look, sea­sonal menu and even an ex­ten­sive gin col­lec­tion.

The Ele­phant and Cas­tle pub, in High Street, has un­veiled its re­fur­bish­ment – which took in­spi­ra­tion from orig­i­nal fea­tures, up­dated with a mod­ern touch.

The long-awaited re- open­ing means Amer­sham res­i­dents can en­joy the pub’s ex­ten­sive menu, which in­cludes stacked burg­ers, hand­stretched piz­zas and clas­sic pub mains.

The new de­sign also in­cludes an il­lu­mi­nated beer gar­den where Bucks res­i­dents can try a vast col­lec­tion of cask ales and keg beers – in­clud­ing Sam­brook’s Wan­dle and lo­cal brew Pure UBU am­ber ale.

A spokesman for the Ele­phant and Cas­tle said: “Step off the high street and into a cosy pub, filled with com­fort­ing tex­tures and colours. Mixed-hue woods have been used through­out, with low, beamed ceil­ings, orig­i­nal fea­ture ban­quettes and fam­ilystyle round ta­bles.

“Details come in the form of retro-style fringed lamp­shades, plush cush­ions and fresh planters. Re­laxed catch-ups are best en­joyed in the glasstopped con­ser­va­tory, which can be pri­vately booked for spe­cial events.”

In­cluded on the pub’s new sea­sonal menu are shar­ing plates such as honey and bal­samic chorizo bites, crispy fried mac-and-cheese and sweet chilli hal­loumi.

Pub food in­cludes veni­son, char­grilled burg­ers and piz­zas topped with smoked sal­mon, aubergine and ar­ti­choke or crack­ing porchetta.
