This pub first opened its doors in 1854 and it's been lovingly refurbished again and again since. At the moment it has a charming light and airy feel to it thanks to the huge windows, an easy-access central bar, a seasonal pub grub menu and regular events.

Great service, Amazing staff, Homely atmosphere. Currently introducing new entertainment often but not all the time which is great for a local pub. Definitely the best pub around!!!
Great pub with a homely feel. Fires and rugs in winter and a great garden for the summer. Really good menu, really well executed.
One of the best hidden beer gardens in London and utterly unostentatious - it's not like it's trying to be artificially cool or cute or rustic. It's just a quality, normal pub with a good atmosphere.
Best Sunday roast for miles! I'd have a pint of the gravy given the chance! Friendly, happy service with interesting drinks list, great draft ales and wines to work your way through. Best pub in Crystal Palace!
As soon as you step into The Alma you feel welcome and warmly so. The light and airy feel about the place lends itself to a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy the delicious food. The food is varied and often has some unusual combinations of food which are a delight to behold. The presentation is outstanding without being remotely pretentious. The beer/lager/ale selection suits the most discerning of drinkers. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Best all rounder in Palace by a mile, great service, food, craft beers, superb wine list and an amazing all weather garden.
This is not just a local, it's a tradition. Great pub, great food and great staff. If I'm not here on a Sunday I skip Sundays! Best kept secret in South East London
The place to come for good food in a warm and inviting atmosphere with unbelievably friendly service. Dogs are welcome too (they even bring a bowl of water) and the owner and manager know most of their customers names. A pretty stretch tent covers the beer garden, which is heated and blankets are also provided which is an extra touch. The best local pub in south London by far!
