Prezzo has been delighting diners for over eight years, and this Italian restaurant chain has since been able to expand throughout large parts of England and Scotland with some 141 outlets.
Interestingly, the company seeks to restore either impressive buildings or ones of local interest. The conversion of the Newbury library and other listed buildings, such as those in Salisbury, Romsey and Mayfair, are all welcome examples of 'new use'. Their trendy and sophisticated décor usually consists of tiled or wooden floors with delicate lights and colourful paintings, along with wooden furniture and sparkling cutlery, creating a setting that is suitable for a relaxed lunch, a family meal or an evening out with friends.
The restaurants are of particular appeal to those who like genuine Italian cuisine, and they use only the best seasonal products, many of which are imported directly from Italy. The menu includes pizza, pasta, risotto, grilled meats, fresh salads and frequently changing specials.
The freshly baked breads, like the garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, are perfect for sharing and give you adequate breathing space to order starters to follow. Crab cakes served with garlic mayonnaise or grilled goat's cheese with plum tomatoes and caramelised onions on ciabatta bread with a balsamic glaze set the tone for a hearty meal. Best fun is to order an antipasto platter to share made up from seven well loved Italian nibbles.
Find pastas such as the unusual penne con salmone, with oak-roasted salmon, broccoli and fresh chillies in a red pesto and cream sauce, or firm favourites like spaghetti with meatballs, spaghetti Bolognese, and fusilli alla rusticana, seasoned chicken, pancetta bacon, roasted peppers and fresh rosemary in a tomato and cream sauce.
Amongst the special pastas, the pollo mariano, seasoned chicken, pepperoni sausage, roasted peppers and fusilli in tomato sauce, is interesting and different. Italian menus would be incomplete without risotto, like tiger prawns with oak roast salmon and petits pois in a creamy saffron sauce.
Classic pizzas embrace, among a wide selection, the popular fiorentina, topped with spinach, free-range egg, grana padano cheese, marinated olives, mozzarella and tomato, and the much loved quattro stagioni - pepperoni sausage, prosciutto ham, artichoke, field mushrooms, capers, marinated olives, mozzarella and tomato.
Specials could include the pollo Siciliana, char-grilled chicken breast, prosciutto ham and plum tomato slices, baked with their blend of cheese, only one example from the many tempting offerings that come out from the Prezzo kitchens.
You can accompany the food with a variety of tipples, though for many, Italian food requires Italian wines to be enjoyed to the full, ranging from house wine through Morellino di Scansano and Prosecco to liqueurs and beer, and there is espresso or fresh ground coffee to wind up an enjoyable meal, in company with a glass of grappa or sambuca.
This is Italian food at its attractive best, convincing and bringing together the traditional with the modern twist or two against a background of excellent value.
Prezzo is a lively group and opportunities to improve and update are never left on the table for long. Keep up to date with a quick click on their Website.
The White Horse, 70 London End, Oxford Road, Beaconsfield, HP9 2JD [Map]
If you like wholesome, fresh and reliable seafood caught and reared under carefully controlled conditions, well presented in unfussy surroundings, and you enjoy being well looked after by pleasant staff, Loch Fyne is for you.
There is an increasing awareness of other food staples with an extended choice of meat dishes, but it is the original fare upon which their success was created that prevails. Loch Fyne kippers, a fine bouillabaisse, braden rost, kiln-roasted salmon fillet, and the toothsome oysters on ice, with a selection of accompaniments, all are to be found throughout the various restaurants, as well as Glen Fyne 21 day aged rib-eye steak and Scottish smoked venison. There is invariably a well-travelled wine list available which is sensible, both in content and prices.
Loch Fyne's greatest achievement has been to prove to a sceptical populace that chains or conglomerates can be made to work in the eating-out public's best interests.
33 London End, Beaconsfield, HP9 2HW [Map]
Here's an Indian restaurant that has encompassed all the culinary regions of India in its menu, and with fantastic results too. Spice Merchant is spread across the South East with four restaurants, each with a distinctive style and décor, although the quality of the food is the same as ever, top notch. The element of chic along with the friendly staff and the unusual items on the menu, make this a popular dining spot amongst locals and visitors.
The typical tikkas and curries make their presence felt, but it is the innovative and deeply regional dishes that really grab your attention. Maybe you could start with the nalli barra, lamb osso bucco in masala with a tinge of pineapple, and then move on to main course of rajwada gosht, a royal preparation of lamb cooked with whole spices. Other specialities include spiced lobster with saffron and the wine list is commendable, featuring a number of compatible choices.
53 Wycombe End, Beaconsfield, HP9 1LX [Map]
Leigh House remarkably recreates the aura of a Chinese restaurant in the charming town of Beaconsfield where it captures the essence of the Orient without making it unrecognizably exotic. The décor doesn't overwhelm but quietly reminds you of the underlying Far Eastern connection, creating an anticipation that quite charges your appetite. The dishes follow a wonderful pattern of Cantonese, Pekinese and Szechuan styles bringing a number of tastes and textures to your palate.
The gourmet hors d'oeuvres offer a selection of hot starters although you could also choose sweet and sour fried won ton for your appetiser. Move on to a traditional shredded beef fillet with long bean and black pepper sauce, or the chef's speciality of dressed bird's nest with scallops and prawns. There are numerous options for rice, noodles and curries while fish, seafood, pork and beef come to the table in various delectable avatars. For dessert, you could try the almond jelly with fruits and the wide range of wines offers you numerous choices.
Kiln Lane, Wooburn Common, nr Beaconsfield, HP10 0JQ [Map]
The tranquil setting in Wooburn Common does this lovely inn a world of good because atmosphere is the first in many of the steps that lead to complete enjoyment of an experience. Comfortable rooms, pretty garden and a restaurant that has notched up some awards ensure that Chequers Inn is indeed a wonderful place for you to visit. Walls covered with framed pictures, potted plants and interesting memorabilia imbue the restaurant with an eclectic ambience that is hard to miss.
The menu poses a combination of French and English cuisines and could typically feature grilled tiger prawns with crayfish, marinated potato and vine tomato chutney amongst the starters. Follow this with a main course of rosemary roasted rump of lamb, ratatouille, shallot puree and sautéed baby spinach. A look at the dessert list might inspire the calorie fanatic to hit the gym but everyone else can enjoy vanilla cheesecake with raspberry sorbet with ease. The wine list is mostly French although a few New World influences can be seen also.

24 Chalfont Road, Seer Green, Beaconsfield, HP9 2YG [Map]
As you travel by the main Chalfont road through the village of Seer Green, you cannot miss the quaint 170 year old building housing The Jolly Cricketers pub. The tavern accommodates two bars and cricket paraphernalia adorns the walls. The garden area at the rear of the building is ideal for al fresco dining and beer festivals which are conducted periodically. Four hand pumps, three for ales from local breweries and one for cider are at hand to serve guests.
Begin your innings with smoked mackerel pate, pickled cucumber and soft quail's egg served with toast and warm salad of wood pigeon, toasted hazelnuts, apple and beetroot before settling into slow braised shoulder of beef, creamed potatoes and rich red wine sauce and wild mushroom risotto, truffle mascarpone. To end your meal order plum and ginger crumble with Amaretto custard and warm vanilla rice pudding, poached pear and ice cream.
