A Chiltern Ramble from the Award-Winning Alford Arms

One of the most perfect iFootpath days up your appetite with a four mile ramble through the rolling Chiltern Hills with ancient lanes, pastures, woodlands and water meadows and then satisfy your hunger at Hertfordshire’s Dining Pub of the Year.


There’s one thing for sure. Walkers love pubs and pubs love walkers. It’s a match made in heaven. That’s why we work so hard in building the portfolio of pub walks within the iFootpath library. We look for the best UK pubs set in attractive surroundings and work with them to bring our customers a recipe for a great day out.

Alford Arms Walk
We were delighted when the Alford Arms in Frithsden accepted our proposal to create their own bespoke walking guide. The route is a lovely way of exploring the history and nature of the local surroundings. Walk in the footsteps of monks along the ancient lanes as you pass by the site of a medieval monastery and a modern day Buddhist monastery. Enjoy the expansive views across the rolling hills, admire the 12th century church and explore the water meadows alongside the River Gade that once formed part of productive watercress beds.


alford lunchThe Alford Arms is a great find. Dogs, children and muddy boots are welcome whilst the food is truly first class. Fabulous food, constructed with care and packed with flavour. And it’s not just us that think so. Every year the editors of the Good Pub Guide take the opportunity to rate the very finest Dining Pubs across Great Britain. The Alford Arms has been chosen as Hertfordshire’s Dining Pub of the Year for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. It doesn’t get much better than that.

So if you’re looking for a walk and a roast this Sunday...look no further.
