Alexander’s has gone over a complete change since the last time we visited. It is more fine diving than a few years back, it wasn’t for me as I am quite a plain eater, if you are looking for more of a fine dining experience definitely check it out. Only one choice of cider was also disappointing.

Food was good good choice on menu
Service was slow at times and wine was not available that was on list but over all I would recommend.

Food took 1.5 hours to come, think they booked too many tables and couldn’t handle it. However, we got free drinks as compensation. Also food was INCREDIBLE

The food was great and the staff were friendly.

Everything was spaced out appropriately and followed the guidelines.

Prices of food/drink were all very fair.

We would definitely come back again!

We had a wonderful evening. The flavours in our main courses and deserts were fantastic and the meal was very good value. The chicken with gnocchi was delicious. The Almond tart was great but the pistachio cake was not to my taste (too perfumy) Our servers, a young chap working his first shift and a French girl were extremely friendly and efficient. Top class experience all round. Well done to all

Really enjoyable experience, the food was amazing and cocktails even better. The only thing was the doors were wide open and we were seated near the door making it quite cold.

The food was lovely when it came but had over an hour to wait on it and there was only one other table as it was only half 5. I got the feeling they weren’t ready for customers after lockdown. We had to sit outside for almost an hour before we were allowed into the restaurant it seemed like they were still trying to sort out the restaurant and when we did go inside it was obvious that work had not been finished off, the restaurant was also cold to the extent that a waitress put her coat on. That being said I will not rule out going again as they may be better prepared.
