Over the last few years my wife and I have eaten at the Akeman on a number of occasions when visiting friends in Tring. We dropped in again last week. Food is nice and at a reasonable price - although the menu could be a little more expansive. Worth a visit.

I took my youngest daughter to The Akeman to celebrate her 16th birthday. She had a lovely time and was chuffed to sip her first public half-pint of beer with food she loved. The atmosphere and the staff were welcoming.

Poor service, very mediocre food and quite expensive. Not somewhere I would recommend or go to again.

I had a meal here with a friend recently. I ate the chicken pasta and apple crumble both of which were delicious. The service was very good and staff were attentive. I would definitely revisit.

I went for dinner with my wife and a couple of friends on a Friday evening, we had booked and were greeted by a helpful and smiley waiter who said it was no trouble to have a drink at the bar before sitting even though we were slightly late. He showed us our table and told us its table number... More

visited this place for the first time last week for coffee meeting. I had Salmon and eggs for breakfast with coffee,however attention to detail was missing from the chef. Front of house was lovely with good customer service.

We've been here quite a few times over the years and I've always been hoping that the food experience would improve. However today's lunch was no exception to the rule. Hot smoked salmon flatbread light lunch option and the king prawn, chilli and crayfish linguine. No hot smoked, so opted for cold. The fish had too much grey bloodline going... More

We arrived at 8 pm on a Sunday. Were advised that Roast dinners were finished, but then the waiter came back and said he and chef had agreed they could do them for the four of us. Great meal, good spuds and Yorkshire pud. Bar staff were excellent . Nice chairs etc etc. will go back when next in Tring
