Description

Housed in an elegant hotel, the Alma in Wandsworth combines all the comforts that we've come to love about a classic pub with the sleek practicality of a modern restaurant. The bar itself is made of deep mahogany, and seems to have soaked up some of the character of their guests who undoubtedly filled the room with laughter and cheer. 

Alongside their quaint decor, the drinks and food menus are capable of putting a smile on even the most cynical faces. The team behind this venture are committed to showcasing a range of cask ales and beers, working closely with the nearby Sam Brooks Brewery and Twickenham Ales. And then there's the dinner menu. Adding their own personal tweaks and amendments to an array of traditional dishes, the chefs have really let their imaginations run wild; from ale battered fish and chips to American burgers with peanut butter, you'll leave a few pounds heavier and with a giant sauce-stained smile etched on your face.

Good food and nice relaxed atmosphere with brilliant service:-) jesaki visited The Alma Wandsworth on 23 Apr 2017

The restaurant made special arrangements to house a party of 17 (including one guest with mobility problems) which made a birthday lunch a relaxed occasion. However, I did feel that there could have been more attention paid to asking if we needed more wine, bread, condiments etc. Another criticism was that the disabled toilet had a blackboard in front of the door and no space to open without hitting a chair occupied by a diner at the table nearest. A staff member did move the board and the diner moved her seat when she realised the situation. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 15 Apr 2017

For ages, this has been one of the best pubs in London. And the restaurant section at the back is sufficiently separate from the bar at the front so you lose no atmosphere but emjoy a proper eating environment. Extensive menu and good-quality cooking. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 22 Apr 2017

Great pub with delicious mains, but the starters a little underwhelming (we ordered four of the mushrooms and all had inconsistent presentation/ portion sizes) and the service was really slow. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 20 Apr 2017

The pre event responses were slow and i had to chase for answers. menu change after i had received everyone's orders. On the night everything was very good. A very nice girl looking after us and all we excellent - thank you. My criticism is intended to be constructive. Not very attentive in the run up to event.

We were so impressed by the service we received prior to th event and the room was set up beautifully and the food and drink were wonderful. However, our guests arrived at 3:30pm to absolutely no food. We had asked for lots of scones and cream and ham and the lady doing these had apparently been told they were for 4:30pm. It was really stressful chasing the staff for these when trying to host our guests too and really embarrassing that everyone had to wait around for them when some guests needed to leave at 4:30. When they finally arrived they were delicious and we did get a discount from the overall price which was great but sadly this did not make up for the timing error. Thanks, hope this helps.

We booked for Sunday lunch and requested a seat in the bar area. When we arrived we were seated in the restaurant but this was not an issue as it was lovely. We had to wait c.5minutes to get menus and order drinks which was surprising as it was not that busy. The girl serving us was lovely and very attentive, esp when I required clarity on gluten free meal and dessert options. She even produced gf bread - albeit loaf slices but still nice to have the option. We ordered the pork belly and chefs roasts and both were delicious! Not alot of potatoes but the meat and veg portions more than made up for that. I ordered the lemon posset for dessert and it was also very enjoyable and a good sized portion. The only recommendation I have is to have some gluten free gravy for the roasts as it's not a proper roast without gravy :) visited The Alma Wandsworth on 26 Mar 2017

As a previous long time employer of Young's, i was disappointed in the service at the bar we ordered a black coffee 3 times, and waited 15 mins for it to turn up ! We was incorrectly told that our table was ready 4 times ! We than had to ask twice when it would be ready, 15 mins after table booking time, finally getting table 35 mins after booking time ! 2 people ordered Steak which was tough and Uneatable !!! this was exchange for roast beef, which was not that good also. When i received the Bill it did not include our Bar tab which was set up with our table number, Total bar bill was £70.00, but being a 'Young's man' with staff discount i told the staff, and it was corrected and paid in full. I feel that many people not happy with the service would not have pointed this mistake out. I can only suggest that the complete management of The Alma is rectified as quick as possible, so we do not lose to many customers. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 12 Mar 2017

We booked the Bramford Room for a seminar and the venue was perfect. Booking was very easy and when I had a worry about capacity and accommodating all my guests, staff were very helpful and sorted it out for me. We will definitely be back when we next hold a seminar. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 07 Mar 2017

Loved the Alma!! Staff and food were amazing, we were well looked after especially as we were in the restaurant during the rugby 6 nation games and stayed all afternoon. The cost was very reasonable as well. Would highly recommend! celeste16 visited The Alma Wandsworth on 25 Feb 2017

It would have been fantastic if we had had more bread and butter at the table and refilled bottles of water, also if we could have been asked who would like the vegetarian option for main course prior to bringing out the two options. Thanks:) visited The Alma Wandsworth on 23 Feb 2017

Service was great at the start but when our waiter's shift ended it was poor. Meal was slow to arrive and time ticked on so long after the desert menu arrivedwe decided not to have any and left after paying the bill. A shame - was willing to pay for desert and coffee but had neither. Jack visited The Alma Wandsworth on 22 Feb 2017

I held my 40th birthday party at the Alma, with pre-stomach lining dinner in the restaurant beforehand. Everything was amazing. The staff were so helpful. The food was amazing and the set up of the room was exactly as I pictured it. All the pre-event communications were spot on and I had the best night ever! visited The Alma Wandsworth on 18 Feb 2017

I wrote a wonderful review for The Alma a few months ago but unfortunately on a visit a few weeks ago I cannot do the same. The new chef has completely changed the restaurant menu and it is more like pub grub which could be OK in the pub (if it was good food which it was not) but not for the restaurant. A very disappointing menu and even more disappointing food. Won't be going again for a long time. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 04 Jan 2017

The roasts get cold too quickly. It may be a bi-product of reheating, but the potatoes and the gravy in particular get cold too quickly. We waited half an hour for coffees at the end of the meal and even then they came out sporadically and two were forgotten. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 12 Feb 2017

Used to be my favourite pub for lunch but standards are not what they used to be. Went for lunch on Sat, weren't offered bread for the table & bottle of wine was given with screw cap on- not opened at table or offered a taste. Recent roast lunches have been really disappointing- small portions & slow service. Used to be fantastic with big veg plate for the table. Last time had Sunday lunch so disappointed wrote email for feedback- never acknowledged received or replied. visited The Alma Wandsworth on 11 Feb 2017
