First up, would return for the food, and atmosphere, but you CAN NOT ask customers to order at the bar, when the bar is difficult to get too as you allow drinkers (quite fairly) to drink there. My advice ... (I'm not a arm chair critic) I am a manager in the trade... Get your staff working sections in the... More

Took my parents for a Birthday lunch. Service and staff were fast and pleasant,however the food was mediocre. My parents chose Asparagus and Courgette fritters and Beetroot cured Salmon. These were from the small plate menu and priced at 6.25 and 7.50 respectivley. The fritters appeared overcooked but I did not try them,the salmon was excellent. I had Plaice fillet... More

It's in Frithesden Vineyard. Marvellous food; eaten here many times over many years. Always a great place to go. Mainly with family (no children); nearly always at a lunch-time. Good value for money.

We were so badly treated at this pub we walked out and said we would never return. However we did go back with friends and still did not think much of the place service or food.

We love it here. You need to book ahead. It's always busy but it is first class food in a relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommend.

I have been a few times over the last few month. The food is lovely every time and the service is always good and home made. Good for gluten free or dietary requirements too. Always book a table it's busy every day! Ideal location for country pub setting.

We have two pubs in our village, but we'd rather travel the ten miles to this one every time! We're regulars on a weekend for a drink and we ate there last night for the fifth time since discovering this little gem about two years ago. The food last night was awesome! Rarebit and rillettes (home made) followed by lamb... More

My wife and I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions over many years and have always been satisfied with the food and service. Our last visit was on a Wednesday night in March and the restaurant was packed. There is no doubt that this is a very popular 'gastro pub'. However, the meal we had was very... More

We had our first meal at the Alford Arms this evening and it was delicious, generous portions that are beautifully presented. All The staff are so friendly and welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. Will definitely return. Keep up the good work.
