Welcome to the Alford Arms

Frithsden! Where the heck is Frithsden? Find Frithsden and you’ll find the award-winning Alford Arms: a pubby gem nestling in a secluded wooded valley. The great Ashridge Forest lies bustling on its doorstep and the broad sweep of the Chiltern Hills is its backdrop. Ramblers drop wearily out of the woods and swear they have chanced upon Brigadoon while locals and regulars swap a knowing glance.

Our food menu changes every week, making use of the very best of seasonal local produce. As everything is cooked fresh we can cater for intolerances and allergens without batting an eyelid or offering just dust to eat!

The Alford wine list offers every kind of grape and price point to suit tastes and budgets, and all of the wines we stock are ‘old world’ – just to help keep our wine miles down. Our spirit range rivals many a city bar – with over 20 gins to choose from! Our ales are perfectly kept and will more than likely be from local breweries including Tring, Rebellion, and Chiltern. They compliment the IPA and lager from Camden Town.

You can book a table on the heated terrace or within the restaurant. But do remember we ALWAYS keep our bar tables free for walk-ins and your four-legged family member is very welcome in the bar and on the terrace.

We have been the stewards of this beloved watering hole for more than 20 years – and not one day is the same as the one that has gone before. Find The Alford Arms and you’ll never utter the term ‘gastro-pub’ ever again.
