The Alma, Tavern & Theatre is a grand, traditional pub with the unique added attraction of its own intimate theatre. Situated in the heart of Clifton, The Alma is one of Bristol’s best known pubs and is popular with its locals as well as drawing regular crowds for food and Theatre shows.

The Theatre is renowned for its eclectic mix of productions from local and national theatre groups, and specialises in the production of new writing.

Taken on in 2017 by the team behind Zazu's Kitchen, 'The Alma', as she's affectionately known, has been refurbished throughout, with new food and drinks to boot! As a team, we all share the belief that all our pubs should be hubs of their communities, with great quality products and a warm welcome. The Alma is no different - fresh food, served with style and grace, in the confines of your local, neighbourhood pub.

It is our shared belief that this fabulous building should be used to its fullest potential, as the arts are close to our hearts we felt there could be more to The Alma. We hope you will join us in enjoying some outstanding Theatre, as well as some awesome Live Music
