I went to a one man show at the Alma about Kenneth Williams and was pleased to see it so busy after its makeover. The pub was buzzing and there was a good audience for the show. It's a great asset for Bristol.

Living in South Wales and appreciating the arts enormously we decided to venture to Bristol and into The Alma Tavern (for food) which was very pleasant. Nice woody, friendly surroundings in a lovely part of Bristol. Food arrived quickly and the staff were attentive. Furthermore,...More

I should start by saying, I really like the Alma and have been going there for at least 15 years on and off. There is always a relaxed atmosphere, the clientele is the older Clifton professional letting their hair down. One minor issue I have...More
