The carvery was so much better than on previous visits. It's a good price for what you get, the meat is cooked very nicely. Some of the veggies could do with being replaced more frequently as they had gone soggy and the gravy and sauces were running low but overall one of the better carveries local to us.

My family consisting of five adults and two young children stopped off at The Alma Inn on Sunday, on our way back to Portsmouth after being at the the Southampton Half Marathon. It was very busy but the wait was well worth it as the carvery etc was very good. Will definitely be coming back.

We went to the Alma for a lunch, on arriving the parking was ample and walking in the decor is quite pleasing. I looked at the menu and decided that the Half Chicken and Ribs looked great and that was what I wanted. So I went to order that to be told that they where out of Chicken and it... More

All good to me considering other reviews, it's a friendly pub/restaurant with of course at times cues, but with patients and you'll get your turn, choose a quiet time if this is your concern. The food you can mount right up, the prices are below the usual cut. I'd recommend this place, as I've said, there's always the friendly face.... More
