user reviews of the Alma Inn, Sowerby Bridge

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I had high hopes for the Alma as I'd popped in for a drink in tha past and it looks a really nice place in a great location, which is all true. My wife and I decided to try a meal on Saturday afternoon after a nice stroll. A few poeple in but not what you'd call busy. We sat in the bar and ordered meat and potato pie with mushy peas and I had the pork sausage and mash. It took about 25 minutes for the meal to arrive - not a great start for something non-complicated. the mash, chips and mushies were luke warm but rather than wait any longer we decided to go for it as the other elements were hot. It was filling stuff, nice thick/meaty gravy but my wife saud the chuncks of meat in the pie were much too big. We mentioned the lack of heat to the waitress when she cleared the plates but no apology. We decided to try a dessert but they only had a choice of three. We both plumped for the apple crumble with custard (I would have preferred ice cream but that didn't seem to be an option). The dessert was very hot and very large although the custard seems to be the tinned variety - but overall no complaints with the puds. All in all it took an hour and 20 mins to get through a bog standard 2 course meal on a quiet afternoon. Shame really as we really wanted to like the Alma as it's a great little pub and would probably go back but not for some time but felt really let down. Maybe we caught it on a bad day and perhaps should have complained more about the food.

For a bloke like me from the suburbs of London this pleace is heaven on earth... Good Real Ale (allbeit with one of those northern sprinklers*), super service, nice patrons, super nosh and scenery to die for.

*why do they do that...dont they know the beer tasts better without it?

This pub is in one of the best spots in Yorkshire (if you can find it!). If you catch it on a sunny day, you can sit in the big garden on the hillside and chances are you won't see a car go past. The beer is pretty good, with a wide variety of bottled lagers and beers. Inside is traditional, but not stuffy.
