The Alma Arms has been serving good value meals and snacks since 1970. You won't get restaurant service here as we like to remain a pub at heart serving local brews and quality wines but we pride ourselves on quality, affordable home cooked meals lunchtimes and evenings. Our chefs cook daily in house 7 days a week using only freshly sourced ingredients. We serve a five choice 2 course menu at just £9.95 And "Any pie and a pint" for just £10.95 Served 7 days. Our daily specials board includes "Catch of the day" and our old favourites such as our famous family recipe steak pie is always available as well as a selection of Grills ,various curries, pastas ,salads and snacks. We have a full menu takeaway service always available. We specialise in last minute large party bookings and can cater for up to 40 covers in our light spacious conservatory. We regret no persons under 16 years allowed
