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. Crowd-pleasing dishes include hand-made pie, mash potatoes and veg; salmon fillet, creamed peas and new potatoes; and a comprehensive burger menu. A selection of roast meats is offered on Sunday. Children are well catered for with their own menu or smaller portions from the main menu. Also on offer is a 6-hole crazy golf course, pool table and darts.
