We are all time poor nowadays and here at The Alford, we understand better than most. So, to help you reserve your table more easily, we are now working with the very nice people at ResDiary, enabling you to book online and have your table confirmed instantly. They will also send you a detailed confirmation email to ensure nothing is missed.

Of course we would still love to hear from you and especially if you have any particular requirements. Therefore if you would rather talk to a human being (or one of the team!) then please call 01442 86 44 80 and we will look after your reservation personally.

And finally - should our clever little widget say "no tables available" it is definitely worth giving us a call or, even better still, just come on down. Being a pub, we don't reserve tables outside or in the bar and we will ensure you get seated just as quickly as possible.


Here at the Alford Arms we want everyone to enjoy our pretty, Victorian pub and terrace garden.  We understand it’s not always the easiest place to get around so we’ve put some thought into the planning, design and layout.  To help you plan your visit here’s a few things you may need to know.

Visitors have a choice of entrances - front door and rear door from the lower car park.

Level access for wheelchairs is available via the front entrance, however, the doorway is a little narrow (29.5” wide) and there is a shallow step.  Our staff are always on available to lend a helping hand to negotiate the entrance. 

Finding a parking space can be tricky during busy times and there are no designated reduced mobility parking spaces, however, with enough warning we are happy to reserve a space.

The bar area is on one level, tiled and wooden flooring with wood chairs and tables in various sizes.   Access to the toilet facilities is also on this level, however, there is no disabled toilet facility or wheelchair access.

As a dog friendly pub you may need to be aware of our four-legged friends sat at their master’s feet and by tables.  It does mean, of course, that disability assistance dogs are very welcome. 

Menus can be printed off in large print.

In the unlikely event of an emergency evacuation our team are well trained to assist with your safe exit.

Our helpful team are happy to help with your specific access requirements, on the day, or, if you contact us pre-arrival we can be sure to sort out your needs.
