Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

A landmark Young’s pub and rightly so, the large, Victorian-era Alma serves punters of all stripes gathered around a low, island bar. Some perch on barstools, others at tables nearer the windows: most will be gawping at the large, pull-down screen for big matches.

Outside of these magic 90 minutes plus stoppages, the Alma attracts ale fans eager to sample Sambrook’s Wandle, Wells Bombardier or something from the regular Young’s range.

Bar food is another plus: deli boards of cured meats, honey-and-mustard chipolatas, burgers with brie and bacon. For finer dining, head to the adjoining restaurant for the likes of honey-glazed Gressingham duck breast. If you don’t want to leave at chucking-out time, then stay: there are 23 hotel rooms here.
