SquareMeal Review of
Walls covered in vintage publicity stills; film directors’ chairs sporting legendary names; red moquette flip-up seats; cut-outs of Monroe, Chaplin and co: boozers last looked like this back in
Miss Jean Brodie’s prime (circa 1969, we reckon). In truth, The Alma’s quirky, movie-themed upgrade makes a charming change from the ubiquitous corporate pubs-by-numbers design. Budding Midnight
Cowboys can load up until late on Theakston’s Old Peculier, Windsor & Eton ales or Old Rosie Cloudy cider from a decent range of keg and cask brews; if you prefer grape to grain, there are 10
wines by the glass as well as bottles of Lanson Champagne. In the evening and weekends, the pub dispenses Bangkok street food such as tom yum soup, spring rolls and curries for the cost of a West
End cinema ticket when Austin Powers first hit our screens.
