Description: You'll find The Alma just 5 minutes walk from Windsor town centre tucked away on a charming Victorian red brick terraced lined street. We are a traditional English pub serving a range of beers, ales, fine wines and great food....the size of our portions are legendary. We also have the largest beer garden in Windsor, great for those hot summer days and evenings, should we see them! We are conveniently located for Heathrow, the M4 and the M25. The Alma is full of antiques and collectable's including: furniture, paintings, pictures, mirrors, ceramics and interesting knick-knacks We also have a collection of rare film posters and are constantly adding interesting and unusual items to The Alma.It's like pubs used to be and, in our opinion, should be.

Just been for Sunday lunch today. First visit and loved it. We came from the other side of the Great Park but figured driving through by day was safe enough - we encountered no footpads and the treacherous journey was well worth it. Seriously: lovely pub, great welcome, excellent atmosphere and the super food exceeded expectations. Unfortunately we can't all... More

Once again we have not been disappointed. My Wife and I went to the Alma for one of their gut basting breakfasts and as well as the friendly service the food was plentiful and delicious. I was trying to look for something wrong and mark it down but I cant. 10 out of 10. Top job! Keep it up

Always friendly and relaxed. Love sitting out in the garden with a cold beer in the summer. Always worth a visit

Went to this pub as it is just round the corner from where my daughters live. It was our first time there. We got a good welcome from the barman but I did slightly feel like we were intruding in a private party - everybody else seemed to know each other! The food was good. The service was acceptable but... More

After sampling many of the Windsor pubs first, The Alma became my local around seven years ago. Over the years I've seen faces come and go, furniture replaced, and even the pub change hands. But one thing that hasn't changed is the friendly, warm, and welcoming atmosphere you will always find at The Alma. Helen and Danny do a terrific... More

Really like this pub. Had great pub food (veggie burger and chips) and beer. The staff are friendly and it's a lovely cosy pub doing its own thing. New favourite local 😀
