Went here to have a meal with my partner. Food was fantastic. Was shown to a table straight away. Staff came over and made sure we had enough to drink etc. Towards the end I felt slightly neglected with the girls standing and chatting, one looked straight at me when I was clearly waiting for them. The manager walked through... More

We visited this restaurant with our family and friends. The food was good but there was over £26 worth of drinks added to our bill. When challenged about it, neither staff or management didn't really care and told me 'well it's your job to check your bill anyway'!!! As I stood there in disbelief another couple approached me and informed... More

Staff at the Alma need to be aware that customers have ears not quite sure what was happening if it was a staff meeting or just a gathering for the staff on shift to slag off the staff that aren't, i am guessing the latter as there was about half a dozen sat there drinking coffee in the bar area...

My husband and I stumbled across this pub on Sunday and was very excited. The place looked lovely , view just breath taking. We walked in and first impressions was lovely, we was shown to our table in a large room which sadly felt like a function room. There was just no atmosphere. The staff had long faces and really...

Enjoyed some nice food here in the evening. Mixed seafood platter was generous for two to share although I prefer potted shrimps cold on hot toast rather than served warm. Still tasty tho. Wife had monkfish which again was generous and really well cooked. I had scampi tail in batter which was excellent. Beers are fab too. Love it here... More

I couldn't wait until I arrived home to write this review, I am writing it whilst I am on the train. I have just spend two wonderful nights at The Alma Inn and I can't sing it's praises high enough. From my arrival to departure the staff were great every single one of them, nothing was too much problem for... More
