A friendly Islington local with a welcoming vibe and an array of movie posters, alongside other film paraphernalia. A British menu is served up from their kitchen daily (including the weekly Sunday roast), while the bar is well-stocked with imported and local craft beers, real ales, ciders, wines and spirits. The Alma also hosts a weekly pub quiz and open jam folk night.

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.

The Alma is a great spot for a pint and some top quality food. There is a very relaxed atmosphere, a great selection of craft beers and a cool movie theme throughout which gives it it's own unique feel. Also a great spot for catching the football as the clientele are friendly and accommodating. Would recommend it for a lazy sunday pint or a friday night session any day.

Fantastic pub, Hollywood meets Stokie. Friendly staff, great food and good selection of beer and wine. Relaxed atmosphere with a mixed crowd, good place to chill and play some games or meet up with friends for a nice meal.
Highly recomended

The Alma use to be quite gastro which is not a bad thing. Now it's a PUB PUB with community heart. Eat here regularly, the menu has plenty to choose from. Staff are present and I can bring my dog Spartan ☺️
