Booked in a party of 9 for Sunday lunch. Food and service was relaxed a friendly. A few items were not available but it was getting late in the day.Shared a great "Picanha" steak cooked on the charcoal grill, delicious and carefully cooked. Desserts were all freshly prepared and home made. Will be back.

Had an evening meal with some friends and I must say the food was terrible and the service very poor. I ordered the Funghi al Forno which is pasta with mushrooms in a CREAMY sauce. When it arrived I was astonished to discover that the dish contained plain pasta with a few mushrooms...NO sauce. It was dry and tasteless. When... More

After seeing The Akeman in Tring one Sunday, we decided to call in for lunch. Upon entering, the place looks great however it went downhill from then once we sat down. We ordered some bottled still water whilst we looked through the menu. 10 minutes later some water arrives and we were ready to order. The waitress mentions she'll be... More

One of the best steaks I have had in a very very long time. Had a great meal here with a group of friends. Service was excellent, cannot fault them in anyway. Food was absolutely delicious, we all had varied dishes and the whole party agreed that it was a splendid meal. Will be back.

Not been here before but was recommended to us after a visit to Rothschild museum just along the road, we were not disappointed, great atmosphere, bar scene, staff very friendly and helpful, great service and very good food, lots of choice and cooked in bar, good value for meeting friends or family dinning out.

After a negative experience in a pub down the road we were delighted with the food and level of service. The coffee at the end of the meal was my favourite part - it was strong and bitter. The atmosphere was a great and everyone was warm and friendly.
