On 30th July I held my 21st birthday party here from 3-late with a mix of friends and family attending. The staff at The Alma were amazing! The food they put on was so lovely and the landlady even checked in with me before to see what sort of food we were after. A few members of my family are... More

New owners sine last visit but the welcoming atmosphere has not changed, females on their own are not judged but made to feel welcome. Food very well cooked and they cater for us who have a small appetite 😄. Will be going back again with or without friends

Made to feel welcome & at home as soon as you walk through the door, great friendly atmosphere from all of the 'locals'. Food is fantastic at a very reasonable price. Sharon, the Landlady, caters for parties, wakes, etc at silly cheap prices & puts on a wonderful spread. As a real ale drinker, I can say, there's not a... More

We had lunch at the Alma today, it was very quiet with only 4 other customers in the bar and they were getting the restaurant ready for a function this evening. However we were greeted warmly, given the menu which was fine, then the lady who does the cooking came out, Christine and said there was also omelettes available with... More

Fantastic Sunday lunch just like my Mum makes. Real good quality home style cooking, lovely choice of vegetables, good portion sizes. Staff are all very helpful and eager to please. Don't take my word for it give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

The Alma is now under new management and Stevie and Matthew are looking forward to meeting both new and old customers. The aim is to continue serving a good range of real ales, lagers, ciders and wines for you to enjoy. We are a traditional village local pub, dog friendly with a beer garden and children's play area. We have started serving Sunday roast dinners, which are available from midday until 4:30 pm, and we will be providing a lunchtime snack menu in the near future.
