Reviews "This is my favourite pub in Crystal Palace. I've found is a top notch drinking spot. In my experience the staff are always friendly and inviting. I love the decor – pared back cool without trying too hard. I'm a red wine drinker and the Chianti is always a winner, which they decant into a carafe for a nice touch. The food is gastro but reasonably priced with a couple of good options for vegetarians.The ambience is warm and relaxed and if I remember rightly, they play some good tunes in the background."

Boydy would like to welcome you all to the new look Alma...

The Alma has been at the heart of the Crystal Palace triangle for many years. Built in 1854, The Alma has been refurbished back to former glory and by breathing new life into it we are establishing The Alma as a relaxed and friendly pub with a great reputation for quality ales, wines and great British pub food.

We are passionate about pubs, people, food, quality drinks and music and hope that our venture is reflective of this. We are serving a contemporary style, traditional, seasonal British menu, which will change on a weekly / monthly basis.

The menu is cooked to order using only the best fresh, British, seasonal ingredients from suppliers such as Butchers Block and Peter Condon. Our huge beer garden and build in BBQ are ideal for the summer evening & weekends.

Our BBQ menu will be full of interesting and different types of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. We also have a fantastic wine menu comprised with the help of Taste of the Grape who also work with us on our food and wine tasting nights - a great showcase for our wine and cooking skills.

"The Alma has been renovated recently and is under new ownership. It's nicely decorated, you can usually get a seat, and the food is very good. I've had the rabbit pie, the burger, the vegetarian haggis, and all were excellent."

"Had a delicious vegetarian haggis roast lunch at The Alma today - cosy fires and great service!"
