About The Alford Arms
True to the traditions of a great British Pub, the Alford is a real hidden gem that has become a local institution over the last 17 years.
Whilst often described as a gastro-pub, it sits more comfortably in the classic pub mould, that just happens to do great food. So, tables in the dining room are available to book, but there’s also the bar for drinkers with tables available on a first come, first served basis.
The seasonal menu and daily specials balance originality with more traditional fare and we are firm believers in using local and foraged produce wherever possible. Happy to cater for any requirements we are past winners of the national ‘FreeFrom Food’ Eating Out award.
There’s a fab terrace for sunny days and historic Ashridge Forest is right on our doorstep. Ramblers, dog walkers, bluebell admirers, mushroom foragers and cyclists regularly emerge from the surrounding countryside ready to combine their activities with a refreshing stop at the Alford Arms.
Dogs, children and muddy boots welcome!
Fantastic food & service - great to be back!
Great allergen menu! Lovely venue
We really enjoyed our first visit to the Alford Arms and combined with the fabulous circular walk it made for a great birthday treat. The weather was atrocious - no fault of the pub's! - and we were so thankful for the copious gazebos, heaters and fluffy sheepskins on the terrace to keep us warm and dry. Staff were friendly and obliging and we thoroughly enjoyed our food. The roasted pumpkin mac and cheese was delicious. We hope to visit again and enjoy the delights of the pub's garden on a warmer and sunnier day!
Great as always, heaters and excellent umbrellas for the downpours. Fab food, service quite slow.
Been many times but service yesterday was exceptionally slow - we were seated over 25 mins before receiving our drinks order. Had to repeatedly ask for water to be refilled and in the end gave up and stayed thirsty. Shame as food is good and service normally same
We were delighted to finally make it back to The Alford Arms yesterday. The team has done a great job in creating a safe, warm and dry space. Thanks to everyone for making us feel so welcome, treating our dog to many tasty snacks and for continuing to serve delicious food.
Great food, great service and lovely to be out.
Always beautifully presented food and a great atmosphere & friendly staff. I'd come more often if there were more gluten free and vegan options, as well as more interesting non-alcoholic drinks.
We have been eating at The Alford Arms for years and always celebrate our birthdays here. It consistently serves good locally sourced food. We were so pleased to have got a table albeit out of doors under canvas. Nevertheless it was comfortable and the heaters helped to keep us warm! We will be coming again in the next few weeks.
