Lovely, lovely, lovely!

Great eating experience. Beautiful food that would compete easily with the best of restaurant food. The scallops were wonderful as a starter and the steak with accompanying onion rings were to die for. All of this is in a wonderful ambiance and with great beer. What more could anyone ask for... read more

Fantastic meal, scallops off the special board were amazing, great food, excellent service and as usual a warm, and friendly welcome from staff and land lady. Want to highly recommend the pub but also want to keep it as our little secret special, lovely place too.

We enjoyed a great meal here. A menu more likely to be in a restaurant than a country pub. Dishes were to a high standard. Scallops for starter and hake for main see restaurant specials photo. Worthy of a return visit. Small point the champ came without spring onions. So really a mash.

Locals pub, a bit rough and ready. Just changed hands. Staff struggle a bit to keep up. Food was cold. Food refried but rest of food cold due to wait. Food expensive forcwhat it is ie a local pub. Give new owners time to bed in!

This has been our stable Sunday venue for many years. Recommended over and over again to friends and family. We went for the first time since the take over and left a little disappointed. Why ? Now of course anyone taking over an established venue needs time, that's sensible but in this fickle world of social media time is not... More

We decided to go to the Alfred for a meal and see how the new management were doing. Very pleased to see everything is fine. I had plaice which was lovely and my other half really enjoyed his steak. Followed up with a shared lemon curd cheesecake, yum... This is a very old fashioned rural pub, of which not many... More

We set off from our holiday cottage on a 10 mile hike knowing there was a pub half way but no idea what it was like. We were hot and sticky by the time we got there with our 11 year old sun who just wanted to sit and have something to eat. This pub was just what we needed,... More

The atmosphere at the King Alfred is excellent. The landlord and landlady are attentive and accommodating. The meal was exceptional and the portions excellent; good home made food. It is a dog friendly pub and there is always a warm welcome when I visit (the landlord and landlady always remember my name). I will be a regular visitor to this... More

We had a family meal at the King Alfred first one since the new owners and the whole experience was a disappointment. We certainly won't be going back. New landlord and landlady nowhere to be seen. The chef outside smoking more than he was in the kitchen. We had to wait a while for our food although not busy and... More
