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!
First class! I was really impressed by the service - helpful, knowledgeable and easy to catch but without being intrusive - outstanding. The food was really good. One thing that would have made the experience even better for the four of us would have been a round table (but I recognise that might be space-inefficient).
Good food, good service and good value for money
We had roast dinner. Most had the sirloin beef with a few having the pork. Beef was cooked nicely with a little pink. Red cabbage in red wine was the best I've ever had. Roast potatoes were tasty. Yorkshire's were crispy and could be cut easily with a butter knife. All around nice meal and good value for around £16.
We had a fantastic experience at the Alford Arms! The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Thank you for looking after our group, including a colleague with severe allergies (nut, egg, shellfish), so well!
Great meal as always, service was good, efficient and friendly.
We had a wonderful family Sunday lunch. Huge portions for kids which was excellent value for money. Found the adult mains a little expensive although delicious. Service was excellent. Overall very happy and will definitely return!
Excellent service food atmosphere pub, we loved it thank you
Wonderful food and pub. First time we've visited since the fire - even better than before :)
Always have an amazing meal at the Alford, guaranteed 10 out of 10 every time 👍
My guests and I are never disappointed when we visit The Alford Arms. Lovely fresh, local produce which is prepared beatuifully.
The food was lovely but we thought the portion sizes of the main meals were a little small for the prices charged.
Lovely meal and friendly service
Waited over 1 hr before anyone acknowledged us for drink or food. Had to ask someone to take finished starter plates away. Did not have any aperol, any pump working for lemonade/coke and no rose blush. Took off 3 coffees as goodwill. Disappointed as it was booked for my son and daughters birthdays. Looked like not a bough staff.
Fantastic Fathers’ Day dinner, we were very well looked after by the waiting staff and the food, as usual, was exceptional.
Great service, super helpful to my mum who has a number of allergies.
Noisy, expensive, struggled to find something on menu we liked.
The staff were delightful and easily accommodated our wish to move tables. The food was delicious.
Always delicious food and a warm, friendly genuine service
We love the food! every time we’ve been it has been fantastic and the value it’s very good for the great food you get. The atmosphere is so chilled and welcoming also the staff has always been friendly and helpful.
