The Alma Description

The Alma is a relaxed gastropub that retains an air of tradition coupled with a slightly more contemporary feel. This comfortable pub has mismatched furniture, bright walls and large sofas.

It is run by Kirsty Valentine the General Manager, who prides herself on quality not quantity. The food is fresh and seasonal with modern British influences. The menu changes regulary and everything is prepared in their huge kitchen, right down to the bread, chutneys, ice creams & sloe gin for the bar.

“Took my girlfriend to The Alma on saturday night (28th april), we had such a lovely relaxing evening. It took me by surprise, keep it simple and well executed. Lovely food, try the homemade Chocolate Fondant, it's delicious. The vibe is relaxed, friendly and homely. Just right, not pretentious. Will definiately be back.”

“The Alma is my local and is a great place. It is very cosy and perfect for a couple of drinks in the evening after a long day at work. The food is really nice - love the deserts! The staff are really friendly and the music they play is great and they have a small but lovely garden, heated in the winter for smokers. All in all if you are passing by, go and have a drink at The Alma!”

“My boyfriend had his birthday dinner here last week and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Ok so the food is typical Islington gastrpub prices but the quality was superb. All in all have to recommend the Alma and am very pleased it's my new local!”

“having watched the alma''s progress with interest over the past 12 months you can say nothing but what an improvment. The area itself has needed a gastro pub of this quality for some time (not forgetting the house and centuria of course). Ok so mayb some early problems with staff and food, but only open for a short time, give them a chance! Oh i think you may have guessed it. I really like it there! I will continue to go and watch with interest. WELL WORTH A VISIT”

“A pub split between the trendy crowd and regulars it appears not to be aiming for one or the other - so satisfies no one. Food disapointing considering what their website promises. One real ale Directors OK but nothing to want me to go again.”

“This place is an enigma. The food is a hit and miss affair; I have eaten here on and off for the last year and find some nights its great and other nights (usually busy ones) the portions small and the flavours lacking. What lets the place down most is the staff. They are rude and quite often there is simply not enough of them. The Manager today just said to me "Im going to have to move you". Hello? Where is the sorry, could I find you somewhere else to sit?" And this was at 6 in the evening, when they wanted to reserve the table for 7.30. Surely, they could have just said, we need to prepare this table, could we ask you to move for 5 minutes? Courtesy costs nothing! In addition to this, they have a truly awful selection of draught beer (Guinness excepted). The place could be great, but only with a serious shift in staff attitude and consistency in the food, but as it is, if you are looking for”
