It’s very easy to shout about yourself from the rooftops, but it's not our kind of thing. Fortunately, there are plenty of people who are happy to do it for us.... so a big thanks to all our supporters. To see what they say, just click on the book covers to read the full review.

BREAKING NEWS: We are made up to have been awarded the Hertfordshire Dining Pub of the Year 2019 for the tenth time from THE GOOD PUB GUIDE, which was published on 6th September.

Thanks also to all the Muddy Stilettos (@muddyherts) fans who voted us best Destination Pub in Hertfordshire for 2017 & again in 2018.

One award we are very proud of is the pub restaurant gong at the inaugural FREEFROM EATING OUT Awards 2014. The mystery judge enthused that: "As someone with multiple serious allergies, I have NEVER been so well fed and cared for!" Of course, then going on to win Gold Awards again jointly with sister pub The Royal Oak in 2016, 2017 & 2018 were very special moments.


We have also been mentioned in many lists including the Top 20 Gastropubs list in The Times.

Good pub guide Alford Arms Frithsden

 “Thriving dining pub with a chic interior, good  food from imaginative menu, and a thoughtful wine list."





“In a hamlet enfolded by acres of National Trust common land,
David and Becky Salisbury's
gastropub is worth any
number of missed turns."

Alastiar Sawdays Alford Arms, Frithsden





“Cross the threshold and you'll immediately pick up on the warm
and lively atmosphere, derived
from the buzz of conversation
and from the rich colours and
eclectic mix of old furniture."






“A lovely gastropub in a peaceful, rural setting”, with a deserved reputation for excellent British cooking, and a genuinely
friendly style."






Michelin Guide Alford Arms, Frithsden

 “A pleasant garden overlooks the village garden and the traditional menu has a strong British stamp which follows the seasons closely."
