As part of our annual visit to the local camp site we visited the Alma for our evening meal just a short stroll away. As always the menu provided some good staple choices, and although it was a hot summer's evening I had the steak...and kidney pudding, definitely a wow meal, full of succulent meat served with mash and piping hot vegetables. We enjoyed the lime cheesecake to finish off our meal which was also excellent. The friendly and expedient service rounded off a great eating experience. Thank you.More

A lovely pub and location with good food and atmosphere marred only by the poor attitude and demeanor of the host.

We visited several times during our stay at the nearby campsite and tried most of the menu over the week. All the meals were tasty and very reasonably priced with good sized portions.

We are so lucky to have this pub in our village it’s a favourite place to eat out for us as a family; the staff are so welcoming and the food is so good and the choice on the menu is good with plenty of...options for all. Portion sizes are decent , it’s all freshly hand made, from a 3 course evening dinner to a scrumptious Sunday lunch or light snack there is always something on offer, we can always rely on the Alma from a drink in the beautifully cared for floral beer gardenMore

We were staying at the campsite and booked a table a few days before arrival as we would have a dog with us. We had to eat a little early as tables were booked for later but in the end we were ready for it...The steak burger was really good and was a real fillet. My wife has the sizzling chicken. She said it was really good. It looked and smelled fantastic. Sounded good as well... Great welcome from the staff and food great. What is there not to like?More

We stayed at the local camp site and thought we would give it a try for lunch. Nothing prepared us for the wonderful meal we had. Started off with a baked Camembert to share, followed by what can only be described as the best steak...and kidney pudding we’d ever had. Portion sizes were also very generous so much so that we couldn’t fit in dinner that night. To add to this, we were able to take our dog with us. Staff were very friendly. A good experience all round and we would highly recommend.More

8 Adults and 4 children (under 6) for Sunday lunch. Menu was perfect for everyone's taste. Steak and Kidney pudding, traditional roast, scampi, veggie and kids options. The meals were all cooked to perfection and served with a smile, along side a local beer or...two. If you've saved room then all the homemade desserts are worth a try. Personal favourite is definitely the gypsy tart. Horrendous for the diet but life is too short not to have this. On top of it all the prices are so reasonable. Many pub Sunday lunches are getting closer and closer to the £20/£25 per main, but here the price is closer to £10 than £20!! The owner, Richard, is a wonderful man and treats everyone like a local. All given the same care and attention. Along side his staff, this pub makes pub dining great. Recommend... again and again.More

Excellent food and value. Excellent service with a smile. Excellent prices. Just what we needed when out on a day’s walking with friends - and dog friendly and excellent beer!
