Very good dinner, especially given the big Christmas parties here at the same time. Excellent food & service.

I breakfast here annually whilst my car is in for MOT nearby. Arrived at 08.10 & doors shut (supposed to open at 08.00). Entered by toilets side door ! Apparently the manager had not turned up. He arrived 15 mins. later with the keys ! Staff were friendly & efficient. I had the best cooked breakfast out in years. Poached... More

Brian, Thanks for the excellent review. I'll have a word with the Duty Manager. However, I am sure that you understand that these guys have often worked the evening before so I try not to get too upset if they miss the alarm occasionally. I'm delighted that you didn't lose faith and that the team rescued the situation. Best, Peter More

Two kids and three adults so we had a short wait for a table. The Akeman has a positive upbeat sort of vibe. Nice décor and quite a large restaurant area. We chose burgers, salads and fish and chips and everyone agreed that they enjoyed their lunch. Food and drinks well priced. We would definitely have a return visit.

Both times I've eaten here I've been impressed with the quality of the food. A recent dinner with a friend left us both drooling after one of the most delicious steaks we've ever eaten. The only downside is slightly expensive Prosecco and the trek to the toilets.

Me and my girlfriend came here with another couple for Sunday dinner. First thing you notice when you walk through the doors is the wonderful open fire to your right and the big open space. Food was fantastic, did a really nice Sunday roast with all the trimmings and the beef was cooked very well. Won't hesitate to come back,... More

I day cosy but this is a spacious pub / restaurant with a modern look, yet at the same time retaining the characteristics of a traditional Tring Inn.

Our friends invited us out for a meal to The Akeman last Saturday evening. It was packed when we arrived - took quite a while to order drinks and the waitress said they were down 3 waitresses! We asked if this would be a problem when ordering the food and she said not - she was right! Our food arrived... More

First time visit yesterday, can not fault the food my roast dinner was amazing my only criticism is the lack of service , on many occasions my partner had to try and catch the eye of a server . Apart from the service the food was brilliant so would definitely go again .

We chose to come for a coffee here and regret our decision as there are plenty of other options in Tring. We waited over twenty minutes for our coffee to arrive only to see one of the bar staff bring two coffees to the people who came in after us. On questioning him, we were told our order was on...
