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.
