Back again and pleased to see the Dartmouth institution that is Alf's is still going strong. Great friendly service coupled with well cooked food is definitely a recipe for success and something you must try if you're in this neck if the woods.

The seating arrangements are a combination of outdoor and under cover. Staff supplied the children with books and pens to keep them occupied. There were also quite a few people there with dogs (I believe... More

Have been here several times, and this one was quieter than normal, which was a nice surprise as Alf Resco's gets very busy and buzzy - which can be part of the charm, but it was nice to have that little bit more space. Food was great, as ever and toast arrived with the cooked breakfast (rather than some time... More

With attentive staff and good prices... More
