Could be better....

Here's the positives: large public car park nearby. easy place to meet others with bar area at front of the restaurant. Toilets upstairs were spotless. Friendly and efficient service. Large jug of tap water provided. Less good stuff: Booked on line but didn't get a confirmation. Went anyway as... read more

First time visit. Ordered typical pub food, burger. Service good, food delicious. Best burger I've eaten in a long while. Worth a visit. Bonus that the interior of the pub is very nice. Good work. Will return when passing through.

I went here for a meal with my family for my daughters 21st birthday. The food was delicious, and they catered well for my gluten free needs with a separate menu all with meals I was able to eat, this is very rare and meant I could go away and not worry about feeling unwell. The food and wine were... More

This is a lovely bar/restaurant and I used to frequent it quite often, but mostly just for coffee (which is reasonable, but nothing special). On the occasions I've eaten there I've always left feeling a bit disappointed: the food is fine, but it's quite pricy and it doesn't quite live up to expectations you'd have at the prices they charge....

The food is amazing tasty, the choice of drink is great, although small portions and expensive, worth the money if you value quality over quantity. Always busy which is a good sign. Could do with more staff as they are run off their feet. I would 100% recommend and I will be returning for a third visit.

First visit and had to say enjoyed the whole experience . The atmosphere was good and the steak was delicious. Service was satisfactory but we were in a large group which made it more difficult for the waitresses especially as we were all a bit rowdy 40 something's . Only let down was the fact our glasses were not cleared... More

Visited the Akeman with our good friends and their two lovely daughters. We had just spent 3 hours wandering around Whipsnade so we were all ready for our late lunch. Table was booked for 2.30 so service was waning but the restaurant was still more than half full. The room has a nice modern feel with an open kitchen and... More

Visited for early Saturday dinner. Relaxed atmosphere and top notch food. Excellent service and a special mention to Mike our waiter who was very attentive without being intrusive. Will be dining there again.

Having seen several adverse reports on TA together with our own unfavourable experiences here,including a recent visit when the place had run out of mozarella early one weekend and the food that was available was very poor,a lunch last Saturday was of a contrastingly high standard. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful.The menu was wide ranging but has been helpfully... More
