List Upcoming Event


You will find The Alma in the centre of Linton village, close to the spired church of St. Mary with it's ancient yew trees.

This is a free house - run by Graham and Linda Webb since 1997 - in a true traditional way with no meals being served. Emphasis is on providing a convivial atmosphere where everyone, male or female, feels comfortable from any age group and from all walks in life. There is a pool table, bar billiards and darts board. There are no fruit machines, nor is there a juke-box. Background music is provided and may be requested.

The pub gets its name from the Crimean War and the battle of the river Alma in 1854. Parts of the building date from the early 17th century, but the feel inside is Victorian. There are two bars, one of which is non-smoking.

Just occasionally, food will be prepared for a special event or function, but the aim is primarily to serve quality drinks in top condition. The Alma has been voted Pub Of The Year (in 2002) and has also been placed second during the past four years Herefordshire CAMRA awards.

Currently there are two regular Real Ales (Butcombe Bitter and RCH Pitchfork) on offer with two, three and sometimes four other ales as well. The guest beers are selected by way of popular demand, tend to be drawn from the smaller and relatively local breweries.
