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.

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 😀
