Special Offers & Discounts


YOU FOOD Recommended Offers…
Enjoy the last few days of summer in style this September, with a FREE bottle of wine for YOU | FOOD members at the Kings Arms in Old Amersham.  If the weather is warm eat ‘al fresco’ on the stylish terrace (right) or, if not, in the recently refurbished oak beamed restaurant, or the pub which starred in the famous film Four Weddings and a Funeral.  Either way, discerning diners are sure to enjoy the delicious flavour combinations created by Savoy trained chef Nana Ntiri Akuffo.  Read the review here.

As a late summer tipple I would also highly recommend the gorgeous Brittains flavoured vodkas.  The Black Forest flavour (cherry & chocolate) really is one of the most delicious drinks I’ve ever tasted. It’s much smoother and silkier than any other flavoured vodka I’ve tasted – may be due to the fresh British cherries that are used to make it!Whilst I hate to use the word “Christmas” already, Brittains’ amazing array of flavours make ideal presents, so why not buy a couple for friends or family, plus one for yourself to get free delivery included!

Tasty nutrition, extra energy
& great shape all in one!
Whilst I never thought I’d see the day that I’d recommend a ‘fast acting, nutrition and weight management shake’ I’ve seen a friend transform into a new woman in a matter of weeks as a result of an amazing new product.  Find out more here
