A traditional country pub in the village of Painter’s Forstal, The Alma is a place to find rest and refreshment while you explore the glorious Kent countryside. 

There’s been a pub here since 1837, when the landlord used to light candles on the premises to show thirsty hop-pickers the way in the dark. Now, it provides a warm welcome to the walking and cycling parties enjoying the beautiful local trails.

One such walk takes you into the town of Faversham - where our Shepherd Neame ales and lagers are brewed. The short journey from brewery to glass means the beer here is wonderfully fresh, and so too is our traditional pub food, with locally sourced ingredients all prepared on-site. 

You can dine in our lovely restaurant, in the bar, or out in our pretty beer garden, where a covered patio provides alfresco opportunities whatever the weather.

Safe for children, and a dog-friendly area too, the garden is a lovely spot to soak up some summer sun. And you can even have a game of bat and trap - an essential part of any authentic Kentish pub experience!

    Dining at the Alma

    The Alma is the home of the original sizzling chicken and sizzling beef using a time honoured secret recipe created by Jill and Mervyn Carter, the first landlord and landlady to serve food at the Alma and handed down to subsequent encumbents of the Alma to the present time.  Much loved and still a firm favourite at the Alma
