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 meal with great service set in a lovely spot in the forest
Excellent as always
Fantastic food, beer and service. Sixteen of us sat down for Sunday lunch and not one was disappointed. The staff were really good, nothing was too much trouble and they made it a memorable experience. Top marks and thanks.
Yet another superb experience at the Alford. The staff are quite amazing!
Really tasty food, lovely staff and great ambiance
Great evening with delicious food!
good quality food and good friendly service
I emailed my thanks to all the staff yesterday as soon as I got home. Everything about the meals, all the dishes; their preparation and presentation, the service and assistance from the staff ~ all were outstanding. Thank you all again for a wonderful afternoon.
We had a very enjoyable lunch and a very attentive waitress if its ok to say that!
My favourite gastro pub of all time. Always impeccable. You will not be disappointed and that is a promise.
The Alford Arms is a hidden treasure. A happy team of staff seem very well-trained and go about the business of serving your needs in a quietly co-ordinated but highly effective way. The specials menu changes each day which makes you want to go back and see what other tasty morsels are on offer.
From the moment we arrived, the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The service throughout our visit was excellent and the food was delicious. We will certainly be visiting again, hopefully in the very near future. Thank you.
As good as always! Very friendly staff, great service and a perfect meal - could not ask for better!
Lovely pub. Great staff

Best pub in the area. A real delight.
Excellent in every way
It was the first time I’ve beem to the Alford Arms. I was arranging a meal with my Mum , sister, cousins and aunties. Our family name is Alford so thought it would be nice to dine at the restaurant with same name. We all had a lovely meal and will definitely be back.
Thoroughly enjoyable lunch - very friendly service - will be back soon - thankyou
Again, another fantastic experience at The Alford Arms to mark a birthday celebration lunch. Never fails to deliver in every aspect. Thank You!
Great meal and superb, friendly and efficient service.
A wonderful night with impeccable service.
As always a very enjoyable experience
I used to live in the area, but now live in Kent, which is lovely but still really miss The Alford Arms. We choose to come here today to celebrate my Mother’s 90th burthday as it’s her favourite place to eat and mine. We weren’t disappointed Regards Sarah Cutbill
Lovely food and ambience. Excellent service.
