Set in the unruffled hamlet of Frithsden, nr. Berkhamsted, surrounded by National Trust woodland, The Alford Arms is a pretty Victorian pub, full of surprises. The flower filled garden overlooks the village green and historic Ashridge forest is right on our doorstep. Many tie in a walk with the dog, a stroll to admire the bluebells with a trip to the Alford.
As soon as you step inside, you can’t help but get caught up in the lively, warm atmosphere, where the boisterous, friendly and attentive team really enjoys looking after the customers.
The understated style of both the dining room and bar is achieved with a mix of antique furniture and pictures, mostly found in the sale rooms at Tring. Rich colours and fabrics provide a simple backdrop for the interesting collection of characters we have collected over the years. The buzz of their conversations, with a little Jazz in the background, is what we’re all about. Always a pub first and foremost, there is something for everyone.
Our seasonal menu and daily specials balance originality along with more traditional fare and we are firm believers in using fresh, local produce wherever possible. Food with a smile on its face! So, whether you want a slap-up meal with top-notch wine, a few pints with your mates or just space to watch the world go by, you will always feel welcome.
All of which is reflected in our Good Pub Guide, County Dining Pub of the Year award, for the 11th year running.
