Good, honest pub food makes The Alma one of the best pubs in Faversham for a leisurely lunch or dinner. We have a charming 45-cover restaurant, serving up delicious homemade dishes every day.

Our menu includes the original Sizzling Chicken, cooked on a skillet and brought sizzling to your table, made to the time honoured recipe handed down from Jill and Mervyn Carter and still much loved today. Also included are old favourites such as homemade steak-and-kidney pudding, fish and chips, slow roasted belly of pork and tasty rump steak burgers, Thai curry.  and Lighter bites are available for lunch time. In addition to our sample menus we also have a specials board which changes on a regular basis. 

All our desserts are homemade and include the traditional Kentish favourite gypsy tart, orange pannacotta, bread and butter pudding, homemade steam sponges, profiteroles with warm chocolate sauce and many more.  Our dessert board changes regularly.  Come along to see what we have this week.  If you have a particular favourite let us know when making your booking, we'll make every effort to have it on for your visit.
