Alford is full of surprises and a great place to stop having climbed the Suie or surrounding hills. We stopped at the Alford Bistro for a lunchtime snack and were not disappointed. The Bistro was busy but we quickly were directed to a table and our order was taken and arrived quickly. The paninis were nicely presented and good value. Coffee was okay, not the best but certainly acceptable. My only observation would be that there isn’t anywhere to safely put your bikes while you enjoy the excellent service. Around the back by the kitchen is the best option.
