As always the food and service was excellent but we were sat next to an open fire which made me uncomfortably hot, I kept having to go outside to cool down.

Service was brilliant, the pub and food was nothing special and the pub was a bit tired and worn. Not somewhere we would return to

Really enjoyed it and it would have been much better with more vegetables. Two pieces of potatoes just wasn’t enough. Thanks

A friendly welcome to a cosy pub with great service and delicious food. The roast beef was cooked perfectly and as tender as a fillet steak. A good selection of vegetables complemented the meat with cauliflower cheese to crown it all. Can’t wait for my next visit!

I took my wife and child for a Christmas meal all I have to say this place is amazing to eat. The food came out hot, you can see the kitchen staff preparing the food, the service is second to none.

A little disappointed with service following a previous visit which was far more favourable, hence our return. We asked for a bitter lemon drink to which the waitress said half of bitter with lemon ! The horseradish sauce came with no spoon which we requested. Waitress reply I’ll see if I can find one! Appreciate its was a busy Sunday lunch service but a bit of common sense would have been welcome .

Lovely, warm and cosy. Had the stew and dumplings which was full of meat and tasted delicious. Service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

My friend took me here for lunch and it was absolutely amazing. We booked the afternoon tea, and even though they told us that usually they don't serve this for less than 4 people, the chef said it was no problem. Service was fast and friendly, atmosphere cosy and the food stunning. We were stuffed and took the last bits we couldn't eat with us. Couldn't ask for more!

Our favourite place for beef Sunday dinner and the sticky toffee pudding is to die for! The wine 🍷 is good too! 😁

Our second time eating here and it was again flawless. It was a birthday celebration meal and the first we’ve had in a long time when everyone agreed that the food was completely wonderful, and the service too. We also love that you’re dog friendly. Thank you!

We had tried to get a table at another location and it was full. Thank goodness it was booked up, otherwise we would not have been able to experience the great food, service and atmosphere of The Alma Inn. Our server was excellent and the food was exceptional. We will definitely be returning

Only thing that spoiled a great meal was the music was to loud.

Always a gorgeous atmosphere up at the Alma, we adore it. Amazing comfort food, service is just lovely and warm and friendly. Couldn’t think of a better place to spend a Friday night, Saturday lunch time or Sunday afternoon!
