I have not used The Akeman in Tring , for almost a couple of years, but not been for breakfast before.

We then decided at 10.00 to visit The Akeman for breakfast, luckily both being able to... More

When we arrived we were told which dishes on the menu were unavailable, when we all ordered we were told that some of those dishes were also unavailable, so not a good start. My husband and I ordered Cajun chicken... More

I have been twice in the last 6 weeks. Each time has been fun. The place is really busy with a good 'vibe'. The food was very well presented and tasty. The cocktails were equally as good. My only gripe was that they didn't have the wine I wanted. The staff are friendly and attentive. I will definitely be going... More

I was a bit disappointed that I was made to feel awkward for needing some allergy advice and the lack of choice. I landed up with the pork that was so spicy I... More

My partner and I visited the Akeman several days ago for a mid-week treat, and I can safely say that they excelled themselves. Great steaks, great sides, an excellent range of beers, and the tastiest glass of Malbec my girlfriend said she's ever had. The desserts, too were fantastic. Despite being quite busy for a Thursday evening, the staff never... More

Met with family Friday for late lunch, got there early and luckily able to park right outside. Don't know how log this place has been open, but is looking decidedly grubby around the edges a little work needed. No reservation, but no problem fitting us in so while we waited we had a tea and a coffee (very reasonable, cheaper... More
