We ate at this pub last night with friends and enjoyed the food which was nicely presented. The pub is in a rather bleak location which was particularly so yesterday with rain and wind. Inside there was a nice log fire and staff were friendly The dining room has a function room next door and a band was playing which... More

Appalling. Greeting was abrupt and dismissive. Eating on Valentine's night I can only say that food was pretentious and poor. 1st course bizarre ... A mini main. Tasteless and ridiculously expensive for the quality. Lights on dimmers were turned up ... Then down - and up again etc !! Lacked atmosphere. The only reason I didn't complain at the time... More

Lunch at the alma blew me away! Stunning food. The best jam rolly polly I've ever had. Words fail me and I used to live in Singapore which means I can talk about food. The cake was perfect with tasty raspberry jam and custard with a melting silky texture. Can't recommend this highly enough. Brilliant. Die die must try.

We visited The Alma on Boxing Day for a family treat. There were 7 of us seated at a table for 12 so we were too spread out. We waited for half an hour before ordering any food whilst the staff stood around chatting at the bar. Luckily there was a magician floating round the few tables in the restaurant... More

My family and I went to the alma inn on Saturday the 3rd of January and I must say that it was my wife's idea rather than mine, arriving mid afternoon it was fairly quiet but enough people in to have some atmosphere, after ordering drinks from the bar we were shown to our table and from then on the...

Based here on business for 2 days and nights. Warm in every way as the weather raged outside. Really comfy room, bed and bedding; good shower and bath; excellent food; relaxing bar, lounge and open fires - and really friendly but not overbearing staff. I use hotels a lot, and this was really exceptional - and great value for money.... More

Stayed here for two nights with my wife and our friends, apart from having no water for the first 5 hours due to a break down with the local water company, we had an excellent stay, the rooms were spotless clean, the food was excellent and the staff very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. I Would definitely... More

I'm not one for writing reviews on hotels, inns or B&Bs, as I expect if you are paying for a service, it should be exceptional. However, this place 'blew me away'. I stay away from home regularly due to my job, so have a well rounded view of what Europe can offer. The Alma Inn served as a welcome retreat... More

Had a bit of an issue with the booking and their cancellation policy, but it was resolved. This was in February and mid week. Dinner and breakfast all very good. Room was OK but cold in the bathroom. I think it was room 6 but not sure.
