Amazing food and service. The set menu had so many delicious options, it was very difficult to choose and the wine list was excellent too. Top restaurant.
Great venue , great service and absolutely lovely food
Had a great Sunday lunch, I'd highly recommend. Reasonably priced for the food too.
Expecting the set menu, on arrival discovered a different Sunday menu which is not at all advertised on the website, and more expensive.
Food mixed, roasts good and huge, pork cheek main very small, only 1 vegetarian choice of maybe 7/8 mains (not really acceptable anymore). On asking if the waitress if they could offer anything else veggie se suggested hake... which was served with mussels and bacon!
It was a birthday meal, it really didnt live up to that at all
Table ready when we arrived for our booking and service was all excellent . Starter was tasty but not well presented. Main course was really lovely.
Great food and service. Had seen previous reviews complaining about portion size but there is no issue - plenty of food, imaginatively prepared and delicious
Fabulous Saturday evening thanks, great food good service.
Love it here! Such lovely staff and always make the time to talk to us and even talk to the baby.
Fantastic as always! Despite living at the opposite end of the high st, this place is “my local” by choice as never fails to impress
Fantastic food as always, great service, would highly recommend.
It’s actually very simple to review because SIMPLY the food is amazing so we keep coming back!
We shared the infamous scotch egg (with habanero and chilli sauce in side) followed by the beef roast and pork belly with rosemary and sage mash (delicious)!
So we’ll be back again and again :)
The food is superb! Beautiful flavours and great combinations in all the dishes and presentation is lovely too. We both wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit to this little restaurant. Also the tables are of a generous size and there is very generous amount of space between. Some places use tiny tables, with no room to put everything on and then cram as many tables as possible in; this is so different. What I would consider a 'proper' dining room. Loved it!
Dinner for for at Dylans on a cold wet Wednesday night.
Absolutely brilliant as usual.

Food was delicious. Compliments to the chef and team.
Really good roast dinner. Lovely friendly staff. Would definitely eat here again.
The specials all sounded amazing & there was a good variety. The food itself was beautiful & the ambience was lovely.
The food is amazing. The staff are really attentive and more than happy to get you anything. Would recommend to anyone
Dylans was absolutely great, they took really good care of us and the food was fantastic! Would definitely recommend
We had a lovely meal but my husband was quite unhappy that a couple arrived with two very young children who made a lot of noise with their iPads and general noise. Appreciate the restaurant cannot do much about this but we really thought the parents should have known better. It isn’t a big family friendly restaurant in our opinion.
Food was yummy - We were clearly the last table in for lunch and felt rushed by the staff to place an order in which case I figured they should only book tables until 2pm to avoid this rushing feeling for clients who want a leisurely lunch!
Not the cheapest place for a meal in town but the quality, service and ambiance is absolutely spot on, has become a regular favorite of ours for sure ! Highly recommended.
First visit here and really enjoyed both the excellent food and the atmosphere
Finally got to try Dylans after many recommendations by friends. Lived up to expectations with each dish bursting with flavours. Nice to have sensible (not too large) portions where focus is on quality not quantity. Good selection of wines by the glass most welcome. Will definitely visit again.
My husband and I had dinner on Wednesday, the food was delicious, the staff were attentive and polite.. We can’t wait to come back...!!
Great food and service, would definitely recommend this fantastic restaurant
Excellent as always! This place never disappoints. Best food in St Albans, by far!
Great food, service and Xmas cheer! Best restaurant in St Albans still. Be back soon
This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The Service from our waitress was great - she was friendly, professional and informative. This is my second visit and I've loved it here both times.
Just perfect 😊, the meal was amazing and the place very pleasant
I’ve been a few times now and every time has been great... the food really is special, the service is friendly and helpful and the restaurant is lovely.
The only tiny tiny complaint on this visit was I had the steak which came with various veg including cauliflower cheese which I love, but when it arrived it was just one florret of cauliflower and not cheesy. As I said minor thing and I still can’t wait to go back!
Came here for dinner having read a recent review and recommendation.
I’m sure I’ve walked past this pub many tines but have never been in
Cosy front bar with a few tables. Great selection of beers and other tipples too!!
Dinner was really good and very good value.
Well cooked, well thought out and a varied menu to suit many tastes. The fish dishes were particularly good.
Simple food, cooked well. Exactly as food should be. No pomp or daft pretentious.
I was even daft enough to knock over my pint on the table and it was replaced for free even though it was my own fault!!
I will definitely be back.
My Fiancée and I ate at Dylan's - The Kings Arms for our 2nd anniversary and the food was absolutely outstanding. The girl that served us was very informative about certain dishes and very courteous throughout. We would definitely recommend this gastro pub to family and friends.
One thing I'd let people know is there's only on street parking, so it may get busy at certain times and difficult to find a space close by.
Lovely food. Very busy so just a little bit squashed and uncomfortable.
Brilliant service and food is always consistent and perfect!
Great food and service as always. The best in St Albans by a fair margin. Back soon!
Dylans never fails to surprise me with the lovely food in a lively but cosy environment. So nice to have on our doorstep.
Very happy with food and excellent service at Dylan’s! We will definitely eat there again! Thank you!
Excellent service, interesting menus, great wine list and very good range of craft beers. We have been for both lunch and dinner and thoroughly recommend it.
Excellent food and service. Great to have a 3 course set price.
Balance between quality and relaxation spot on.
Value for money however check the menu in advance as very seasonal and reassuringly concise choices to choose from.
We like it very much.
