the alford arms


Our 5th annual charity bike ride - Pedal of Honour - took place on 16th May over 52 (very) hilly miles. So far we have raised in excess of £15k for 3 wonderful local hospices, so a huge thank you goes out to all the wonderful folk who took part, sponsored, supported and contributed on the day.

To see our Pedal of Honour website, please just click here and it's not too late to donate by clicking here!

Once again, thanks and Chapeau!

Frithsden! Where the heck is Frithsden?

Find Frithsden and you'll find the award-winning Alford Arms: a pubby gem nestling in its secluded wooded valley. The great Ashridge forest lies brooding 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.

Find The Alford Arms and you'll never utter the term 'gastro-pub' ever again.

Inside, Zoffany fabrics and antique artwork set the mood. Wooden tables and chairs gleaned from nearby auctions add the tone and an open fire stands ready.

Push past the merry throng frothing at the bar and the elegant freshness of the dining room is revealed. The ying and yang of the modern, essential pub: downhome cheer in the front and refined dining in the back. It's best to book of course, but if you haven't there's rarely a chance of you leaving hungry - the Alford's jolly crew would scarce allow it. 

Nab a table in the front parlour or on the terrace when the Great British Summer is in full swing and enjoy the same sense of wellbeing as the fine-diners in their reserved seats. In need of a working lunch - no problem! Your mobile may not have a signal but free wifi will provide a soothing umbilical to the world outside.

Find the Alford and you'll find the seemingly impossible: Bibulous bonhommie and Great British food all served up with a calm, friendly efficiency.

Find it and be content.
