On the edge of Copford Green, the staff at The Alma warmly welcome their guests, with or without their children and dogs. A Greene King house, there are always four ales and various lagers to choose from; its beer credentials are confirmed by the festival held here every Spring Bank Holiday weekend. The menus are crowd-pleasers too, featuring main dishes such as steak and ale pie, mash and seasonal vegetables; poached smoked haddock, creamed potatoes and spinach; and mushroom and cheese strudel with tomato and vegetable stew. Children are well catered for with smaller portions from the main menu, or their own choices such as creamy pasta carbonara.
