The Allerford Inn is by far my favourite place to eat and drink. The atmosphere is always happy and the staff welcoming. The food was as wonderful as it always is. I had the scotched egg and it was brilliant. I cannot urge you enough...to visit, I have never felt so welcome.More

Visited to eat and, as always, was not disappointed. The team are exceptional, welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere is great and the food is outstanding. The pies have always been good but they are an absolute triumph now and the chicken tikka flavoursome and packed...with chicken. Can’t rate them highly enough!!!More

Very disappointing. My wife and I went for a carvery. I had the veggie option - nut roast. The most tasteless nut roast I have ever had. I swear that if you blindfolded me and made me taste test it I would have not had...any idea what it was. The rest of the meal was very average too - poor vegetables which were overcooked. Even the dessert was uninspiring - the chocolate fudge cake was just a standard, and not particularly good chocolate cake (not a fudge cake). I won't be going back.More

I wanna start by thanking all the Allerford inn staff for making my wedding day so special. Nothing was to much trouble, after postponing due to Covid the Allerford team where so helpful at the organising everything. The food(carvery) was amazing as always along with...desserts and my guest all complemented how amazing my evening buffet was! The chocolate fountain was a huge hit with my guest. Setting up was made so easy with them helping me and directing the disco and other suppliers where to go without me having to worry on the day. If your looking to get married then this gem is the pace to go ❤️ Thank you Allerford team.More

Haven’t been to The Allerford for a family carvery in awhile and we always wonder why we don’t come every week as it’s delicious!!! The staff are always so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble even with how busy they are on Sundays! They...have hit the spot with carvery and especially those desserts!!! Yum!! Keep up the good work, it’s a fab place!More

Went in with a couple of friends, they wanted a carvery but as I was eating later I just wanted a snack, I was told they don’t do a snack, my only option was another meal. I ended up just having a pudding, very unhelpful...with no care. We were also wet and cold as it was a cold blustery winters day, no heating on, shame as there a 2 lovely wood burners, no better day to have those lit than when it is cold, wet and windy out, I asked why it wasn’t and was told the member of staff was hot so they didn’t want it on, baffles me that. Where has customer service gone, if it was my business I would go out of my way to be warm, welcoming and friendly towards my customers, sadly this place, although lovely in appearance has a cold atmosphere both in environment and customer service. The good bits, banoffee pie and Charlie who served it to me.More

Lovely from start to finish. Every course was delicious and the service was excellent. We had an issue with a dog yapping constantly on a table near us and our waitress dealt with it very professionally and efficiently. Couldn’t fault anything and would definitely do...it again. Thank you the Allerford team for giving us such a good Christmas Day 🎄More

Our first ever trip out for Christmas dinner and we were not disappointed. The quality of the food was exceptional and we all loved every mouthful. The service for us was fantastic but we did notice it slowing for later tables as they became busier....For us though we could not fault our time at The Allerford and would recommend it to all families.More

Visited the Allerford twice in December for a Christmas party and also for Christmas Day. Excellent food and service. On Christmas Day there was unfortunately a very noisy dog who’s owners made no effort to calm it/keep it quiet. The waitress at our table dealt...with this very well and spoke with the table. The waitress was a young female with dark hair and she made our experience very pleasant. These sorts of things are out if control for the pub but they dealt with it well and we had a lovely meal. Special mention for Toblerone cheesecake - gorgeous!More
