We visited The Allerford Inn having read reviews, with friends as a belated Christmas present for them. The menu choice was sufficiently varied for each of us. The spaghetti carbonara came with or without chicken - my husband said it was amazing - really tasty - he chose to have it with chicken. Our evening was wonderful, the food was great, the atmosphere was good even though there were few people in that night. The staff made you feel so welcome! The decor was lovely.

We had such a good evening - we chose to visit a week or so later for the carvery with family as a birthday treat. Again - we were far from disappointed. One of our party doesn't enjoy a carvery, so it was refreshing to have the option of selecting off the menu, whilst those that wanted a carvery could have one. Everyone said how much they enjoyed their meal. Really tasty, hot, nice choice of vegetables. The desserts were really tasty - the toblerone cheesecake was very popular!

Both visits were a hit with everyone who was with us, and all said we'd definitely go back again - if you'll have us of course!!

Congratulations to everyone at The Allerford Inn, Tom and Tim and the team make it a welcoming place to go - give it a try - you won't be disappointed!!

Hello Helbean,

What a lovely review, thank you! It's great to hear you all enjoyed your evening with us and came back for more! Although our carvery is always so popular, we understand not everyone is a carvery lover so we like to be able to accommodate everyone when visiting us At The Allerford Inn and it's nice when customers noticed this.

We are delighted to hear you and your guests enjoyed both visits and we'd love to have you back so don't wait too long to visit us again!

After a chequered past with closures through receivership and flooding, new hosts have reopened this restaurant first / pub second establishment in the last few months and it's well worth a trip off the beaten track. Had a nice evening meal here with friendly and attentive service. Food is good home cooked fare and prices are reasonable apart from wines ( cheapest £14.95! ). Although large, it has a cosy local feel and we look forward to trying the Sunday Carvery soon which friends say is the best in the area.

Have been here for an evening meal before. Thought we would try the carvery was not disappointed. It was hot and fresh, 3 selections of meat turkey, beef and pork with home made yorkies. My favourite dauphinoise potatoes and cauliflower cheese which makes for an extra special carvery. Staff are lovely and friendly a must place to visit. My partner had toblerone cheesecake homemade yum yum.
