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!
Fabulous as always Sadly no rice pudding with salsa which is to die for !!!! Great and friendly staff , which DOES make the experience
As always excellent food and service, the Sunday roast was superb
Fantastic food in a great setting. We’ll definitely return.
Good great, big portions and delicious. Glad we booked as busy as expected. Service great to start - helped us change tables as had dog with us. But could have been a little more organised and friendly throughout. Would suggest and come again.
So glad you still have your famous bubble and squeak on the menu, it was delicious as always. Lovely food in a very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, always a pleasurable experience to dine here!
Still serving wonderful food.
Parking is always difficult. But great atmosphere and good food.
We had a wonderful evening on Christmas Eve. The food was up to the usual high standards. My duck was delicious & we all enjoyed our meals. It was lovely having the carol singers come in at 10 pm & everyone joined in. Great way to start the Christmas festivities. Thanks to everyone at Alford Arms for a memorable evening. We will be back soon.
A lovely meal - the service is always professional. The only (minor) thing was that my starter -whilst lovely - was cold on arrival (the Sea Bass). I didn’t complain as I get embarrassed about doing it.
Very welcoming, held parking space for relative with disability. Food as always was lovely - thank you for a good 80th special birthday meal for our family.
Gteat food, service, staff and knowledge of ingredients
As always, 100%
Really nice meal with excellent service
A charming friendly country pub serving delicious food and a good choice of exceptional drinks. The chef and staff make every effort to offer exceptional quality and service.
Great food as always. Very worth the price. Attentive staff and a nice atmosphere.
A really lovely evening. Great food. Lovely service. We will definitely come back. Thanks.
Our favourite pub ever
Thank you we had a great time. Dinner was delicious as always and service was attentive and charming.
The mushroom fricassé from the special menu was amazingly good--the simplicity of the cavolo nero was deceptive, as it was truly delicious, and the turnips were cooked to perfection--a dish I will try to imitate at home. My daughter's mac 'n' cheese was truly out of this world, probably the best I've ever tried. The sea bream was accompanied by a very satisfying leek cream. The sticky toffee pudding was utterly scrumptious. The only two slight complaints we had were the crème brûlée and the wine. The crème brûlée was not as creamy as it should have been, and the accompanying polenta shortbread was not as good as I had imagined. My choice of wine, a Greek one, was just not what I was looking for, but also seemed a bit overpriced for what it was. All in all, however, this was a very enjoyable dinner and we will be coming back to the Alford Arms.
Very good food, relaxed setting, very friendly staff, great service. We had a very leisurely lunch and enjoyed just being able to chat without feeling rushed, despite the restaurant being very busy. Wide choice on menu and several good specials. Duck confit was yummy! Will definitely come back.
We had a brilliant Christmas meal with you and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There were 7 of us and we all had different meals and desserts. Thank you for an excellent night! We’ll book again next December!
We always have a great time when we visit the Alford Arms. Great food, great staff. Thank you.
Excellent all round
Yet another great meal from the menu. Nothing too much trouble to adapt dishes to liking. Keep up the good work and all the best for the new year. See you again soon.
