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.

We are regulars at the Alma and after another great, chilled Sunday afternoon felt compelled to write a review. Helen is a lovely host and the laid back style of the pub is perfect for catching up with friends! The food is lovely with massive portions and nothing is too much for the team! Keep up the great work!!!

Been here several times and clearly the best Sunday roast in Windsor both in terms of size, taste and value. Don't go without a booking though as likely to miss out

This pub is very welcoming, with friendly staff and a good drinks list. There are always two or three real ales on draft and the wine list is very good. The food is also excellent, especially the Sunday roast. Thank you to Andy who made us very welcome.

We have visited The Alma for Sunday roast and service was very slow. We were waiting our meal about 50 minutes, keeping in mind that Sunday roast is not made personally for each client. Quality was very good, pub full of character, but service let it down
