The pork Sunday dinner was absolutely lovely. £14.50 for great meat, massive Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and vegetables- all with delicious gravy- you even get extra gravy! Good touch. My friends ordered the chicken and loved that too. Good 'film' based pub with a great...More

A group of ten of us went here for Sunday roast and it was really good. Great pub with lovely staff and friendly service. The veggie options were good too. Prices reasonable, good portions and great value. Would definitely recommend.

Nice pub, wide variety of beers and good hearty food. Loads of film and music posters/pictures on the wall which make for a great atmostphere. Staff are not overly friendly and pints are rarely filled to the top of the glass.

Four adults plus one dog had lunch here on Sunday. The pub was packed to the rafters but we were served a lovely roast dinner. Special mention to Julie for looking after us so well.

Description
A warm, candlelit welcome awaits you at The Alma, a movie theme pub in the heart of the local community in N1. We offer a large selection of imported and local craft beers, real ales and ciders, and wines and spirits from around the world. Oh, and a sprinkling of Hollywood glamour, thanks to our movie posters and film paraphernalia - come and say hello to our resident cowboy! Our kitchen is open seven days a week, serving up traditional British cooking with a modern twist - from burgers and bangers to daily specials like North Sea lobster, oysters and mussels. We'll happily reserve a table or area for you for whatever occasion, be it a Sunday roast with the family or your big birthday bash. Just give us a bell or pop in and speak to of our friendly bar staff. Not that you need an excuse to come by... We've always got plenty going on, with big screens showing all major sporting events, plus a weekly pub quiz and a live folk night - regulars and visitors are encouraged to bring their instruments and voices and join in! Follow us on twitter for all the latest Alma news and events: We hope to welcome you here soon.
