Been here loads.struggled to get a table when we wanted dined at 1530 is that late lunch or early tea.anyway we went for it we had huge pauses between food/service . But staff did eventually realise there had been a problem and did their best to redeem the situation . maybe when you have high standards as this venue does... 更多
Although friendly, the staff did not know what they were doing. One did not know how to set a tab and another couldn't find our bill, giving us someone else's! One brought a bottle of wine and not a glass, one couldn't pronounce items on the menu... The location is lovely for a walk, after which we returned and ordered... 更多
What a shame. Great food - compliments to the Chef. However the front of house staff need some real basic training in how to talk to a customer. Real simple stuff but if there was any other competition in the area this restaurant would be empty.
We had heard good things about this gastro pub and were looking forward to visiting for Sunday lunch. Our booking was made some six weeks previously as it had been exceptionally difficult to book - however upon arriving at the restaurant to be told they were unable to find our booking. Eventually they managed to seat us in the bar... 更多
Popped in for lunch on Saturday after walking the dog in the woods. Lovely pretty pub, surrounded by woodland. Sat outside in the sunshine, was a bit chilly, but there is a whicker basket full of blankets! Had the bubble and squeak with bacon and poached eggs, was delicious, will definitely go back soon.
A celebratory dinner in a pub I have been to many times in my youth. This has always been a great place in a wonderful country setting. The restaurant is somewhere I have always enjoyed but the revamped menu is special. 4 diners, 2 shared starters of Bubble and Squeak and the bread basket. Both were excellent. Mains were Spaghetti... 更多
Booked the Alford Arms for my girlfriend's birthday dinner. They were very accommodating when we added two more people to the booking. We were shown to our table in the restaurant area by friendly staff. Warmed up with some breads, olives and a bottle of very reasonably priced prosecco. I opted for a starter of bubble and squeak with bacon,... 更多
A return visit, after a not so good experience. Top notch gastro food, as it was the last time. The challenge is staffing a pub and a restaurant, and sadly I don't think they have worked it out
Excellent Gastro pub in a lovely country side surrounding, good wine list, good roast, and friendly service. A great place for a family Sunday lunch, I need to try an evening with friends...
Arrived on a Tuesday lunch time. We were seated quickly and ordering was pretty quick. Although we were about the second table to order food we did wait over 30 minutes for our food to arrive. We ate the sausages which were chinese spiced and came with a tasty star anise gravy on mashed potato. These were very nice although... 更多
We went there recently for a Sunday evening meal - been before on a few special occasions and really enjoyed the food. The soup has always been a marvel and has never disappointed. However the tables are really close together so if you are looking for an intimate dinner without being able to overhear and be overheard, ask for a... 更多
We did a cycle ride around the area and after a few hours arrived at the pub 5 mins after they stopped serving. However they very kindly let us still order (or perhaps took pity on my exausted face!). We both had the duck leg which was very tasty. Beautiful location and well worth a visit.
We came here a few years ago and as it was my birthday decided to come again with friends (who had never been). It is situated in a village called Frithsden which is past Berkhampstead Golf Club. You drive along an unlit road and look out for the signpost for Frithsden and turn right. It is also an unlit road,... 更多
Wow, what a treat. I thought the food here was exceptionally good....I had just cycled 11 miles to get there, so was really looking forward to tucking in. I was not disappointed, Excellent fishcake from the specials menu, but for me the best dish was definitely the bread and butter brioche pudding in a white chocolate sauce. Absolutely delicious. The... 更多
