Hidden from the hustle and bustle of Dalston and Highbury Corner is this friendly Islington local. There's a welcoming vibe as soon as you step inside, plus an array of movie posters, alongside other film paraphernalia, lining the walls.
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.

Wow! Incredbile Without a doubt one of the pubs with the best atmosphere and food in London! Fantastic staff, brilliant food and a brilliant place to watch the rugby!
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

Unequivocally the best pub in north London, nay, all of London. Beer, food, film posters everywhere, great craic, even the hangovers leave you with an upbeat vibe.
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.

Best pub in Islington by far!!! Amazing staff and great food! Also do a decent pub quiz on Sunday evening.
By far the best pub for food and sports in the area. Great themed nights and friendly atmosphere always ensure a great time is had. Highly recommended.
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 .
Splendid local pub. Many interesting things to look at. Great real ale, fish n chips is fab. I can also bring my dog.
