Alma77-78 Chapel Market
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Note - on a visit in July 2021 no cask on sale - hopefully just a response to Covid and when things settle down that cask will return. All news welcome.
Irish market pub acquired by One Mile End Brewery based at the White Horse E1, in summer 2014. Up to four of their beers can be on sale but when not available there will be guests available. A one-roomed pub with a street corner location, frequented by locals, many from the market and very much a Gunners pub. As yet, no sign of any "Hackney hipsterisation".
The place has been spruced up with newly upholstered seating, repainted on the outside and with a small side-area just off the main bar area. Five handpumps sit alongside up to 10 craft kegs, with all the beers listed on a large board. In addition a large fridge in the bar offers a range of bottled beers which can be taken away. Over 50 whiskeys and Bourbons are stocked. There are four screens which show sport, often horse racing.
The Alma does not serve food, but many of their neighbours in the market do. Feel free to pick up some delicious street fayre and bring it in to enjoy your lunch - all they ask is that you buy all your drinks here. Toilets are downstairs.
