Great pub. Almost certainly the best pub on the triangle, now.

Dont trust the bitter in the Alma & the lager was so dodgy went down the Hollybush with the rest of the lads this weekend

You need great beer to be a great pub !

I have to agree with Dazzer on the beer. I want to like the Alma (I like it a bit) but the beer dont cut it.

......and may the Lord have mercy on your soul. Any views on the comments made on the ale in The Alma?

FUNK THE ALMA

Anyone interested in listening to some funky music, then go along on Saturday 11th October from 8.30 onwards.
And if you don't feel like dancing there are a few more comy sofas to just sit down and enjoy.

Hi Fang

re comments made about the beer: usually we have very few complaints. It's frustrating when we do, as we clean the lines every week. We have a good glasswasher which we keep salted so there shouldn't be any residue on the glasses affecting the taste.

We do occasionally get complaints about the beer and it's something we take very seriously. I think it might be to do with the beer lines. With this in mind, we have done a deal with Scottish and Newcastle brewery to stock certain of their beers in exchange for them completely overhauling our cellar equipment and beer lines :)

What this means is that we lose Stella (which I never liked anyway) and John Smith's ( which has been eclipsed by the real ales) and take Heineken Export, Bulmers Draught and Amstel. I like all of those brands anyway so it's win - win for us.

Adnams are sponsoring us to get Casque Marqued and Youngs are going to fit an ale cooler so every pint of ale should meet the criteria. Ale sales have really taken off in the last few months so we are going to try to fit a third ale engine.

In the meantime, if any pint we serve isn't up to standard, we'll be happy to exchange it for another - providing it hasn't been drained first ;)

Reading this I thought 'wow, that's what responsible, responsive local businesses are all about'. Thanks for the detailed reply!

Stella replaced by proper Dutch lager? It doesn't get any better than that.

Good work, fellas.
