We joined friends here today for lunch and were very impressed by the quality of the food. Took a little while to reach us but then we don't mind waiting a little longer for fresh home cooked food (and it was busy at the time). One of the best pub meals we've had in a long time. The setting is... More

Exactly what 'it says on the tin' and more! We had a lovely, warm welcome and the room (Shire) was good - spacious with a comfy bed, choice of herbal teas as well as the usual tea/coffee and a large modern bathroom. If I had to be picky, the pillows were a bit tired and the TV needs replacing with... More

This was our first visit here for a meal having driven by many times and it will certainly not be the last. Our only complaint was that after eating our main course, which was delicious, we were too full to try one of the sweets available on the menu. This is something we will put right on our next visit.... More

Called in at lunchtime to find the place was heaving,went to the bar and they managed to find us a table for two, possibly the only table left. Let us know immediately there would be a thirty minute wait for food due to them being so busy. We were happy to wait and am so so glad we did. My... More

We live fairly local and were staying nearby at the Macdonalds Portal golf and Spar (see report). Had read and heard about this pub so booked and visited Friday evening. Lovely quaint pub with cosy seating. Had a nice table for two with pleasant staff. Menu is excellent and the prices very good. I had the salmon and my wife... More

Having been recommended about the Alvanley Arms we found that it was much more than we anticipated, Julie & Harry were two of the warmest and friendliest hosts we have ever come across. Their staff were kind, polite and considerate whenever you came in to contact with them. The food at the Alvanley Arms is second to none, accommodation basic... More

Having discovered the Alvanley Arms on New Years Eve 2013/14 both myself and my wife have been treated like royalty on every return visit since not only by Julie & Harry but all of the staff who cannot do enough to make sure your visit is a superb experience. The welcome is second to none, the pub a warm and... More

After reading some reviews, decided to try out this pub for Sunday lunch and wasn't disappointed. Really nice food with a great selection. Plenty of time between courses so we were ready for the next one. It was lovely and cosy inside with the coal fire, adding nothing but charm. Staff were how staff should be, welcoming, attentive and friendly,... More

A proper country pub that takes it to the next level. Cosy with real fire and very friendly owners who will leave no stone unturned to make you feel welcome. They even bake bread on the premises that is so delicious they could be bakers in their own right. We went for an evening meal and were so impressed we... More
