We had our wedding here hiring the whole venue and stayed over with some of our guests.. brilliant day.. they catered for everything we needed.. helpful and polite. Our guests commented on how great the staff were. It was relaxed and welcoming with a lovely warm atmosphere. We will certainly be visiting again as i am sure some of our... More

The pub itself is lovely and in beautiful countryside however the staff were not very attentive and seemed more worried about the extra frills such as ironing the tablecloths than waiting on tables. Two items from our order were forgotten and no real effort was made by staff to rectify. Food was well presented and tasty but was overpriced. The... More

Myself and my wife were on a business trip to the UK. The company we were visiting recommended the Alma, so glad they did. The room was spotless, large enough and had a nespresso machine. Dinner was really good, we even taught the staff how to make an affagato !!!. Beer was good, service was good, the hotel was really... More

Had lunch today with Spanish friends and was disappointed with the food. Staff were very attentive and soon attended to us which bode well.Drinks soon appeared but they are a little heavy on price. We all ordered starters with mixed results as 2 were over cooked. Main courses arrived and the risotto appeared to have been made with "pudding rice"... More

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
