Rude and unhelpful staff!
We thought the Alma Inn was in such an idealistic setting that it would be perfect for our wedding reception next summer. We made an appoinment to meet with the manager hoping to set the ball rolling. However, this was not to be, our plans never really got off the ground. Firstly the manager (who made the appoinment) failed to turn up. The landlord and lady didn't seem over concerned that this had happened, we were made to feel as if we couldn't have turned up at a worse time (even though the pub wasn't busy and we had been told to come at that time). We put this down to a bad day made another appointment and this time the manager did turn up, though I don't know why he bothered as he clearly wasn' that intersted in our plans or what we had to say. I figured I could resolve this via e.mail. In corresponding with the manager I found that the Alma offered no individuality thought or consideration to the fact that this was our special day they suggested lots of things other people had wanted but nothing that was tailored to our needs, this was causing such a headache. I had managed to book our wedding, 4 hotels and flights to Asia via e.mail but couldn't get anything organised at the Alma, which was just up the round. In the end I rang the manager and cancelled explaining quite politely that we had decided that this establishment wasn't for us as it simply did not meet our requirements. To my surprise the landlord rang back and gave me a mouthfull suggesting I find another venue (hadn't I just had a conversation to say that was our intention?), when I wasn't prepared to argue he hung up. I have never come across such rude and unhelpful people in all of my life. I would not recommend booking a function here until the management buck up their ideas and become customer focused rather than profit focused.
