Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband and I called in for lunch on a day trip to Walney. We were delighted with the warm welcome and the excellent service. The menu had mainly basic pub classics, but the real surprise was the addition of a couple of authentic Thai dishes. My husband had the Penang curry which he said equalled anything he’d ever tasted in a Thai restaurant and was mouth-wateringly good. My smaller appetite made me choose the chicken baguette which came with a fresh side salad and great chips; plenty of tender, tasty chicken - a large portion size for the money - my husband had to help me out! The King Alfred is very well maintained, everywhere is clean, well decorated and the facilities are spotless. If you eat here, your stomach and your wallet will love you for it.

Booked an evening meal for 4 on Sunday 29/10/23, was informed last sitting at 6.30pm. Arrived in time & staff were not interested.... eventually was shown to our table. Ordered 2 roast beef dinners, 1 fish & chips & 1 gammon, soft egg & chips. The waitresses were lovely. The meals arrived, the roast dinners looked like a road accident, everything thrown on the plates, chunks of meat. The whole presentation was dreadful. The egg with the gammon was hard, the waitress took the egg away & came back with 3 more, all hard, the gammon had been cooked to death. The Fish was okish. We had to ask for condiments & sauces as there was non on the table. We had to re ordered our drinks, as they had forgotten about them. I appreciate that in the Hospitality industry is very tiring, as I have done it myself, but from the 1st meal to the last should be treated the same high standard, with care & diligence. I have never served a meal like a road accident or one that's been cooked to death!!! If a chef can't fry a soft egg they shouldn't be in that job, even all 3 that came out afterwards were unpresentable & hard. Even the elderly waitress could see it was all appalling. I won't be recommending the King Alfred to anyone or go back - sad as I was there a year before & everything was lovely & well presented.

Had food at the King Alfred today after being recommended by a friend and we was so glad we went! Food was amazing and couldn't resist getting one of their cakes to go which was delicious! Prices are really good for the quality of food they serve. Highly recommend and I will definitely be visiting again soon! Thank you! 😊

Excellent value hotel. Friendly efficient staff. Comfy bed in immaculately clean room. Breakfast and evening meals lovely. A great alternative to a chain hotel with personal touches. Location easy to find and although on busy road no problems with noise.

A group of ten family members booked to celebrate the 90th birthday of our father. The service was superb with fantastic staff who made us very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb with an extensive menu. Highly recommended.
