Alford Arms

Frithsden, Frithsden, Hertfordshire, HP1 3DD
While still a proper 'local' offering real ales, the reason most people visit this pub is for the excellent food.

The menu blends interesting challenging dishes with local seasonal produce.

A late summer menu offered 'Piquillo Peppers Stuffed with Crab, Crème Fraiche & Chives with Devilled Aïoli'; 'Warm Oxford Blue Cheese & Chestnut Tart with Chicory Salad & Honey Dressing'; 'Seared Scallops on Spiced Pear Tatin with Rosemary Syrup' and 'Foie Gras & Chicken Liver Parfait with Fig Jam & Toasted Organic Pumpkin Seed Spelt Bread' among the starters.

Perhaps 'Pan-Roasted Barbary Duck Breast on Braised Leg Cassoulet'; 'Smoked Grimsby Haddock on Wilted Spinach with Free-Range Poached Egg & Watercress Hollandaise'; 'Roast Pumpkin, Leek, Toasted Pine Nut & Wensleydale Crumble with Purple Sprouting Broccoli' and 'Confit Pork Belly with Sticky Red Cabbage, Poppy Seed Roast Parsnips & Sage Gravy' listed among the mains.

Finish with the likes of 'Lemon Curd Crème Brulée with Nut Biscotti'; 'Warm Fig Chocolate Brownie with Crème Fraiche Ice Cream' or 'Spiced Banana Tarte Tatin with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream' or if you're a cheese lover with their selection of British Artisan varieties.

Vegetables are charged extra, which can give you a surprise when you receive the bill.
