There's not a lot of choice for eating out in Alfreton, but this pub is well kept and seems to have a slow but steady stream of custom in the evening. Don't expect too much in the way of restaurant style service from the seemingly indifferent staff. Nevertheless, the food was tasty and excellent value. Would definitely go back.

There was 7 of us pre-booked for a Sunday lunch. Book in as it gets very busy all day . There is a large choice of food on the carvery and all tastes nice. Staff are friendly and helpful and very cheerful. A good place for families , avoid if you don't want lots of children's noise for lunch. We spent 2 hours there and didn't feel like we had stayed too long . Highly reccomended. Place is clean too. Not many car park spaces for how busy it gets but living locally its not a problem for us to leave the car at home

As locals We have been to the Ashwood many times for carvery and main menu meals, we have found that all food has been of good quality and excellently cooked. It's a real turn around and we are pleased that the Ashwood is doing well.

Our only criticism is that the ambiance of the place is little flat and you seem to get no real atmosphere or a friendly feeling, on the occasions that we have visited and the owners have been there they seem to not want to get to know their customers this rubs off on the other staff.

My last comment is please get rid of the black serviettes it makes the dinning area look dark and a bit like your walking into a wake.

We visit the Ashwood usually once a week. The choice of meal is exceptional, & the food is very tasty, & plenty of it. We were slightly disappointed to find that the cheaper carvery meal has been dropped, as the standard meal costs £6.45. We won't stop going, but may have to change to once a fortnight. The staff are always friendly & very helpful.
