|2004||Best Country Pub|
|2005||Joint Winner and Best Country Pub|
Regular Real Ales include Butcombe Bitter, Black Pear (Malvern Hills Brewery), JHB and Ludlow Gold, with an additional guest ale most weekends. Guest beers tend to be drawn from the smaller and relatively local breweries.
The Alma also helps sponsor this festival (originally named “Linton Festival of Music and Ale”). The Festival is held each year in the grounds at the rear of the pub over the weekend closest to mid-summer’s day.The festival is very well run by an enthusiastic committee of volunteers. Their efforts have seen the festival go from strength to strength with more famous bands appearing, increased audiences from year to year and more money for local causes from the proceeds. Recent years have seen sell-out audiences of over 1000 visitors. A larger beer tent and token system have combined to keep everything flowing!
Linton Summer Sessions
Linton Summer Sessions were first staged in 2011 to replace the former Acoustic Roots festivals. Further Summer Sessions were held in 2012 and 2013 with bands such as Viva Santana, Slowburner, Babajack, The Roving Crows, Little Rumba, The Baddoos, John Smith Band, Almageddon, plus many other local bands. Unfortunately we had to skip 2014 due to imminent change of ownership of the Alma Inn but now we’re back in full swing for 5th September 2015.
