We came down from stoke on Trent last weekend on a night stay in Windsor. I got The Alma from the Doggie Pubs website and booked a table for 5 people. What a brilliant and trendy venue the food was of outstanding quality and we will not hesitate to come back there if we return to windsor

Looked this place up while on holiday in Windsor after reading the reviews on here and we are glad we did. It was only 10min walk from where we were staying but it is a little bit away from the hustle of the town centre down a quiet residential street. Myself, the Mrs and our two kids (age 4 &... More

We had Sunday lunch there with children and it was very good. The pub is not plush but the service is amazing, so friendly. We felt so welcome and the food was really good too. The children played on the climbing frame in the garden, it was ideal for us.

We went here to wet a babies head with 20 or so others. It wasn't a drinking session, more of a large family lunch with 4 generations present. We chose the Alma as the babies parents have moved into the same street that the Alma is on & the landlords allowed us to reserved the back room area of the... More

Hi FPLOCL, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! I do remember your group and not a problem, that back room is fab for groups, seating a group in your own semi private area is popular. That back area can be dark especially with the horrid weather we had, making it even darker! We do... More

The Alma is a one in a million in that it keeps its identity as a pub enabling the conversation and laughter to flow the delicious beers and food are always at their best and Owen is the kind of barman you know is overseeing the best interests of his customers.

This is a great pub with the best roast in the county in my opinion. The setting is great with friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere as well as a decent selection of beers.
