An attractive looking pub opposite the train station,large opened out room with a central island bar. Wooden floored with a mix of seating.
Ten Handpumps but only four beers between them, as expected Youngs Bitter and Special, along with Trumans Runner and Blindside, there are a few ordinary keg beers along with some craft options, as the cask selection was on the dull side I settled for a half of Beavertown Neck Oil.
Handily placed you don't have to go out of your way to find it, which I wouldn't, but is convenient while waiting for a train.

Very nice looking pub from outside or in.Same old Bedfordshire brewed Youngs beers as the previous reviewer found. Bland keg selection as you would expect from this chain.Very busy.

Directly opposite the entrance to Wandsworth station, the Alma is a large pub, restaurant and hotel which immediately catches the eye thanks to its striking green tile façade. Unfortunately the interior has been greatly opened out, creating a large single room bar with a central island servery. There are a number of scrubbed standard and high tables around the edge of the room with a mix of chairs, high stools and padded benches. The walls have been painted a neutral shade of grey but are considerably enlivened with several mirrors depicting images of birds whilst the ceiling has some large circular gold Alma mosaics. The opening out of the room has left the servery devoid of a bar back, which is a shame - an arch with a nice old clock suspended within is all that remains. A fireplace stands over on the right hand wall with another bird mirror above set in a large stone arch. There is a separate restaurant through the door at the rear which appeared to be split into two different rooms with similarly drab décor, tables laid for dining and a plaster frieze running around the top of the walls.
It's a Young's pub, so three of their brews were repeated across several banks of hand pumps - Ordinary, Special and London Gold. The keg range was reasonably interesting and included Youngs London Stout and some Meantime beers. The Special, served up by a friendly barmaid, was in pretty good shape, but ultimately, the ale range is nothing you can't find in just about any other Wandsworth pub.
I was quite keen to visit this place having been impressed by the external tiling when passing it in the past, but the interior left me cold and for me I think I would only use the pub when waiting for a train, as there are better options not too far away.
