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 atmosphere, very welcoming, smiles at the bar. Food was divine, service was top notch. Nice chilled atmosphere. Love the setting. Definitely be back time and time again. Makes such a difference having friendly bar guys & girls (hate calling them staff as they make it happen!!) Keep up the good work. Carly x
Always lovely great atmosphere obviously very popular 👍👍
As always, an excellent lunch with equally good service. The sea bream was delicious and even though I had specific requirements due to diet, they were extremely happy to help.
This is a regular haunt and never disappoints.
Love this place and the food is constantly very good! Friendly welcoming staff. Highly recommend this gem of a pub and restaurant!
The food is always perfect and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Food excellent as always. Service great in a friendly atmosphere.
Fantastic food and staff who were helpful and attentive but not intrusive.
Very friendly staff not keen on too many dogs inside
Have been a few times, but def not quite as good this time, the signature dish bubble and squeak was not so nice...and the spicy cauliflower a bit soggy!! But if a shame as celebrating exams results so was a special trip with the family ☹️
Delicious meal - never disappoints
Our second visit to this great gem of a restaurant- nothing but good things to say about the Alford Arms. 5*in all departments - thank you! X
A great pub lunch!
Really good evening, felt st home. Good food wine and service
What a lovely evening we had. A friendly, happy atmosphere, delightful and efficient staff and great food. What more could anyone ask for?! We really liked where we were seated too. Very comfortable seating and the fresh flowers on the table were very attractive. Thank you Team, it was fab!
Always excellent - we love coming- if only you were within walking distance
Lovely pub - no wonder it's always so busy!!
Another lovely meal, not to be faulted.
Very nice meal. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Prices a little on the steep side. When our bill arrived, we were charged for a dish we didn't have, which was the only major downside to our visit.
Great food and service with a smile
Really great lunch - thank you
