We just stumbled in when walking our dog and got lost. It was well worth getting lost. The food was so delicious that I came back with my husband for our anniversary. It's freshly prepared and has the little something to make you coming back again and again. We are looking forward to the reopening.

Small busy country pub with excellent food and friendly service. I suggest booking weeks in advance as it's hard to get a table.

We visit the Alford Arms every Christmas for our company celebration & each year we are never disappointed. The staff are always excellent & entertaining & the food is exceptional which is why you'll always need to book well in advance.

We had a really good meal with some friends at the Alfrod Arms recently. The food, service and wine were all very good.

We always book, particularly if we are going for an evening meal, or at weekends as it is always popular.

food is the best in the region, service emaculate. Perfectly balanced dishes, with great detail. Service remains spot on even at the bussiest times. I wish there were more like this in the area.
