The Alma Tavern, Wandsworth
The Alma had a bit of a makeover a while ago and Youngs made the most of the architectural assets of the place. The main bar area is airy and comfortable, there's a pleasant fire with comfy chairs and a variety of different seating arrangements throughout. The food is of a decent standard and the separate restaurant provides a slightly more formal gastro experience. The beer's the usual Young's range, with Addlestone's cider, Leffe Hooegaarden and a decent wine list. Recently, the rooms upstairs have been refurbished and you can now stay here, a pleasant alternative to anonymous West End hotels - and their West End prices. This is a fine pub in a handsome building and its proximity to the station makes it a handy stopping off point whether you're coming from or going elsewhere in town. The Alma is definitely worth seeking out and not just for the ornate Victorian tile work and mosaic insets in the walls.
