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.

The Akeman shows such promise. Nice interior and lively atmosphere. We arrived for an 8pm booking and were told there was a 20 min wait for the table. As you stand at the bar and can see into the dining area it was strange that we were eventually seated at a table that had been empty since we arrived. Staff... More

Visited here for an early evening meal and was not disappointed. The waiting staff were very friendly and exceedingly efficient. The menu was vast with a different range of items to the usual restaurant meals. The portions were generous and the food superb. It was served very quickly but was in no way rushed and it was overall an excellent... More

Having been recommended to try The Akeman, we visited it for breakfast. There were only 2 other tables occupied when we arrived and nobody else arrived after us, but for some reason it took about 30 mins for our food to arrive and we only had Eggs Benedict. Possibly someone had to pop to the shops for the bacon (or... More

Nice interior - but our dining experience in the restaurant area was very disappointing - and we will not be returning. Starters were nice - but very small for the price. For mains we had ordered four burgers - two adult / two child. The lighting was very bad at our table (blown bulb in ceiling - one of a... More

The Akeman was always a great place to go when I was living in Tring - love 2 for 1 Thursdays! Haven't eaten masses of food there over the years but has always been delicious... Deep fried Halloumi over the summer was yummy! And really nice relish! And the desserts were always amazing... Always a great atmosphere for any occasion,... More

My wife and I ate here last night and were joined by 2 friends. We went for a full 3 courses choosing different things. I had the scotch egg followed by a speciality steak (forgot the name but it was a sharing dish) The food was excellent. We had some chips with the meal that were over cooked slightly and... More

Hi Jeff. Thanks very much for leaving us a lovely review! We are glad to hear that you and your wife enjoyed all three courses! Unfortunately when we get a little busier the noise levels in the restaurant do increase, we are pleased to hear that our team acted on this and moved you to a quieter area of the... More

You'd think that paying £4.50 for a pint of Budvar would entitle you to a full pint - it's expensive enough anyway without being sold short. Even with a line measure glass, which allows for a sizeable head, I have had to ask the staff to top up as they still serve the beer *well* below the line (stupidly pubs... More

Hi Joe, and many thanks for your recent review of us. As with all our draught products, we take great care to pour them to the producer’s instructions. In the case of many Czech beers the ‘authentic’ serve is with a larger head so that the cream can be enjoyed at the same time as the liquid, rather than sipping... More
