Okay, so this is a bit of a strange one, but here's the story: I injured myself on a piece of exposed metal on the ground outside of The Alma and sliced my toe open pretty bad. In a panic, my boyfriend ran in to...More

Great food, great beer and a good service. All that for moderate prices. I had macaroni and cheese and it was good. We also had tortilla chips with cream and cheese and it was really good.

Love this pub quiz! It is so chill and friendly and welcoming. Even if you just suck at quizzes come for the mood and the company. The food is on - nothing special. But the quiz is it!

Went there for an informal lunch with a client last week, as it was just around the corner from work and I wanted to try it out after years of walking past it. Comfortable and cosy, with enough people to give it an atmosphere, but...More
