A sunny day in a great country pub

What is nicer than sitting outdoors in a lovely English country pub? That with some great food thrown in and a glass of wine makes me a happy person. That's what you will get at the Alford Arms.

Back again for another superb meal. Great staff and excellent food. The bubble and squeak never disappoints. Pints of Doonbar always popular with the boys. Beef cheeks which were new to the menu for us were out of this world.

The food was exceptionally good, I had the bubble and squeak started with was simply delicious and a generous portion. For main I had the rump of lamb which was sublime also with a side of courgette fries and taziki. I would return for the food but not the service, the service was sloppy, dull and lack lustre. As I... More

This is a favourite of mine to go for lunch or dinner out in the countryside. Good drinks, nice food m, great service and a good atmosphere. The courgette fries are really delicious! Have to book as always busy, really lovely to sit outside in the summer.

Having tried to reserve on line we rang and both the phone call and subsequently response to e mail were friendly and welcoming. This is a very busy place because it is simply lovely. Had a warm welcome everything spotless and menu was varied and interesting. We had breads which were interesting and when one of our party was caught... More
