We had our wedding reception at The Alma on 31 May 2014 and all our expectations were exceeded.
The manager, Sean, is very passionate about his establishment and takes great pride in offering an excellent service. He provided a menu containing four options for each course which we circulated to our guests before the wedding. We took over the restaurant from 5pm having had arrival drinks upstairs first. Everyone's choice arrived in front of them with incredible efficiency and, more importantly, was universally well-received. We went for a mixture of traditional and more adventurous dishes and each one was perfect. The restaurant at The Alma is fantastic and well worth a visit at any time.
After dinner we moved back upstairs to The Bramford Room which was ideal for our party of about 60. There was enough space for dancing and also for those who wanted to sit and chat. The acoustics of the room meant that the music was loud enough for dancing but did not drown out conversation.
Service throughout the day could not have been better - all the staff were really enthusiastic and helpful which we hugely appreciated. Waiting tables and serving all day is tiring work but they never just went through the motions, they were really doing their utmost to make sure everyone had a fantastic time.
The rooms in the hotel are very comfortable and are good value for money. As part of the wedding package we had the Garden Suite for free for one night and that was ideal for bridal preparations as it is a spacious room with very large bathroom and a private courtyard as well.
If you are having a London wedding with around 60 guests you could not do better than The Alma. Thanks again to Sean, Laura and all the team.
