After seeing The Alma in the Love London Awards catogary, I popped down and fell in love with it within minutes!!!

I was welcomed at the door and seated in what is a very inserting pub. I chose to have the Sunday beef roast with a bottle of house red all what one would hope for so 10/10 you have my vote . Mike

I come to the alma every thursday with my wife and her mum. they have live music where anyone can join in, sometimes up to 20 musicians. feels like a real pub with local beers and a wide food menu.

I use to work here part time. I love this pub so much. My family mostly come on Sunday for a roast, there's still enough selection on the menu for the kids and the prise is fail. There's Lego and toys , board games , news papers etc .
