Visited recently on Mother's Day. The menu is extensive and creative but with a strong influence on fish. The decor in the conservatory is light, bright and elegant creating a special environment. The food was lovely but the seafood paella portion was small. The rice was a lacking flavour but the seafood was cooked to perfection. The other dishes, including... More

Stopped for lunch at The Alma and as usual it was just lovely. Good wine, fabulous food and great service. Joe made us feel very welcome and was attentive without being intrusive and Olivia our waitress was friendly and efficient. Thanks both for your great service you are a real asset to the company! We will definitely be back.

Service which sometimes lacks speed and good food spoiled only by the lack of low carb foods on menu, although they will change the chips for a good salad! As part of a chain it now has a standard menu available at most "Seafood Pub" pubs. Just a little bit on the expensive side!

I booked a large table for Mother's Day lunch at The Alma Inn based on a past experience, but unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations a second time around. There seemed to be a mix-up with the booking, despite me confirming it a week before, so we ended up being seated at a table that wasn't ready, but came... More
