2 for 1 cocktails on a Thursday night. Delicious 'Winter Molly'. Yum! However, rather annoyingly, 2 for 1 deals only apply to cocktails on the board and you can't mix and match... Very odd! Shouldn't you just pay for the most expensive? No? Maybe it's more manpower to do several cocktails... read more

My family of 4 went for an early dinner at The Akeman on Saturday. We ordered from the standard and children's menus. The waiter who took our order was efficient and friendly and the surroundings were pleasant. However, the visit soon took a nose dive when the food arrived for the following reasons: 1. We received our whole order (2... More

Dinner with friends on a Saturday night. Food was average at best, overpriced for the quality. Service was fine, but overall food, atmosphere and service not of same quality as sister restaurant, the kings arms, in Berkhamsted.

Been here with family and as a couple. It's always been good, the rib eye steak is definitely one to try! Mushrooms on toast as a starter is great as well. Dinner and drinks are both good as well as atmosphere.

Dropped in with my wife and two daughters without a booking at lunch time today (Saturday) and was seated promptly by courteous member of staff. Love the open plan kitchen that gave a little theatre to our dining experience. Nice busy vibe in the restaurant and very family oriented during lunchtime service. The quality of the food was great, cooked... More

We ate at the Akeman on Saturday night, our table wasn't ready when we arrived so after a little hanging around we were seated. The food was slow to arrive and I suspect that in fact our starters had been forgotten, at no point did the waitress let us know that there was a delay with our food and I... More

Had a very disappointing lunch at the akeman. I had to send my food back twice for being cold and under cooked and in the end left without having eaten a main meal.
