Not what I was expectng

My husband and I had a late lunch. We had been to the Red Lion a few weeks before - also at lunchtime - and were expecting the same menu. Wrong! So we ended up 'making do' with starters but not really impressed. The service was good but the menu was very poor.

Staff have always been friendly and the atmosphere is always good at The Akeman. My wife is gluten intolerant and vegetarian and was able to find suitable food for both lunch and dinner. The outside area is lovely in summer too!

Been here a few times now, love the food and always great service. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and the open kitchen is so nice to see. I had the Caesar salad for mains & sweet potato fries as a starter, both were very tasty. Will visit again soon for sure

Having first been with some work colleagues for brunch, I took my husband back when visiting the Tring Natural History Museum. We absolutely ate them out of food - the menu was hugely tempting with a vast selection of food that all sounded delicious. We ordered a fair few starters (including the epinadillas, the calamari and the scallops) and it... More

Only recently moved to the area, and went past this place on a run one evening and it was absolutely packed, so thought I would definitely check it out! We went on a weekend afternoon, and it was wonderful! Only had some drinks and few nibbles, and sat in the back court yard, which is lovely, and has comfy outdoor... More

I've always been a great lover of the breakfast at The Akeman- French roast with bacon specifically. However it seems to be going downhill slightly... I remember the days with the black slate boards and the icing sugar and strawberries on the plate! However last time I went in I was disappointed to see a white plate with a stingy... More

I visited the Akeman for the first time last night for a friends birthday, wasn't sure what to expect, heard it was pricey. Upon arrival staff were very friendly, showed us to our table, took drinks orders straight away. A few of our group had some questions about the specials and other dishes which were answered straight away and off... More
