Best pub in the area
I love everything about this country pub, great food, good value, staff are always happy and friendly and the real ales always in good condition. Always busy but they still don't mind if you just want a drink - proper pub!

Nice welcome home - not!
I was with my 38 year old sister, a local tennis coach. I am 48 yrs old and have an 11 year old son who looks 15. My 72 yr old mother was also with us. My son and I are visiting from NZ. Imagine my horror when we were rudely quizzed as to my son's age when we entered the restaurant and when I said 11 (I am honest) were told we were not welcome. It was a quiet Monday evening and this attitude made no sense whatsoever. Sincerely hope my stay gets better on the welcome front.

Christmas menu
As a group of reinds we have been to the Alma for the past 4 or 5 years for a Xmas get together and have had a good meal and execellent time. This year the food was not not to usual hgih standard, the starter to pate was very salty, the turkey roast was salty and the vegetable hot pot dry. The bread and butter pudding was cold and when requested to be reheated was not renwee but the two portions were literally re heated and returned - not to worry that we had both had a mouthful!!

The attitude of the the enior staff was the most upsetting part of theevening we were not requesting or suggesting arefund or no payment but expressing our disappointment. The person I spoke with had had no heard the expression the customer is always right. Prior reputation does not stand good in the current climate and a decent apology would have gone a long way. Less customer for next year I fear.

A short wait for a Saturday Evening
We arrived on a Saturday evening at 7.30pm, the bar was heaving with diners,we only waited 10 minutes for a table and had one of the best pub meals for a long time.The food was well presented and plentiful and such great value. They have a web site noe www.almaarms.com with menus and maps.

Worth visiting
Visited on a quiet Thursday evening just before Christmas. Enjoyed an excellent Steak & Stilton pe though I thought the chips had probably been reheated. Tried 2 out of the 3 cask ales on offer. Both in tip top condition. Overall an exccelent experience and well worth the journey
