Recently while visiting Wandsworth to visit a family member we called in to the Alma Hotel initially for a drink but ended up having an evening meal there. The service was very friendly and excellent overall. The three of us had fish which was very nice and good value.

I stay at the Alma regularly for business and pleasure. The rooms are stylish, comfortable and a generous size for London. The hotel is well connected for central London just across the road from Wandsworth Town Station with trains running to Clapham Common, Vauxhall and Waterloo. Staff are friendly and breakfast is always a treat. Hotel rooms adjoin the Alma... More

Found myself in inner London, saw this quaint pub and wandered in looking for some refreshment. The establishment was charming as were the quite helpful staff there, serenading me to stay on for most of the night. The traditional fish and chips and beer probably hurt my diet adding more calories than I would care for but it was well... More
