Not impressed with the food but that’s maybe just my high standards. I go to a Restaurant to enjoy food I can’t prepare as well at home. Sorry, I’m afraid this didn’t happen.

Booked a table for lunch with a friend and it was a wonderful experience. The service was excellent and the food and drinks at the same level. Will most certainly dine there again.

The service was shocking it was so bad, we ordered 2 meals, only 1 arrived.
Ordered 4 coffees, the 2 cappuccinos were cold.
The table beside us (outside) were drunk, murdering songs, shouting at cars & motorbikes sitting at the traffic lights encouraging them to rev their engines & resulting in loud exchanges between car occupants & the people at the table. The language was choice. We couldn't hold a conversation at our table they were so loud.
The staff completely failed to manage this even when it was discreetly mentioned to them except to inform the table that they wouldn't serve them any more to drink "because there has been a complaint". Total abdication of responsibility, it wasn't because they have an obligation to other paying customers or the fact they were on the pavement at 3.30pm on a Sunday afternoon?
We weren't charged for the 4 coffees or the meal I couldn't eat because I had to keep getting up to find a member of staff to get any attention to resolve our lack of service & food. That was the only redeeming quality.
We won't be back.

We booked for a family birthday and it was perfect. The birthday girl was offered a free glass of prosecco which was a lovely touch. Food and service excellent as usual. Will definitely be back again soon.

We were hoping to have an enjoyable dinner but we were so very disappointed with the food, service and waiting 50 minutes for the meals.

Unfortunately we won’t be back!

Amazing food and fantastic service. We went to Alexander’s for the first time for our wedding anniversary and the waiter brought us a complementary glass of Prosecco each which was a nice touch. Food was outstanding and good atmosphere in the restaurant, we’ll definitely be back!

Food was lovely but service was not great. Took well over an hour for food to come. I understand staff are just getting back after lockdown but just don’t feel like we got the service that we paid for.

Another beautiful meal. More GF choices please, and a bit noisy. I had mentioned in booking this was my son's birthday, but not mentioned by staff. But food more than made up for this, very good experience.

Excellent food, very well prepared and cohesive dishes - everything on the plate made sense - with creative elements, refined and yet retaining an element of comfort. Beautiful cocktails, attentive service and nice ambience.

Staff were extremely helpful, especially as one of our party had an allergy. Talked through the menu, checked with the chef, absolute 10/10.

The cocktails were extremely professional, fresh and beautifully presented.

We all ordered something different and everything was fully finished as it would have been wrong to leave a single piece of food.

Great value for money, lovely staff and amazing food. Would definitely recommend.

A few more choices would be nice. Some vegetables should be included in the price £24 for sirloin and you only get chips

Excellent food and service. I’m a vegetarian and my veggie burger was delicious, as were the triple cooked chips. Calypso coffee was perfect.

Unfortunately there isn’t a kids menu. I understand that they don’t want to start catering for or encouraging people to bring kids but some families just don’t have a choice.
The food was average which was super disappointing as we so wanted it to be spectacular. I had the tomato salad which was lovely & the crab linguini which lacked seasoning/heat. The kids had burgers which they didn’t enjoy.
My wine glass was dirty and had to be sent back, big lipstick marks all round the rim, not so nice any day but in COVID times this is a fundamental to nail! The cutlery was also grubby.
I hope these are teething issues which will be ironed out as it would be so good to see this thrive. I nearly didn’t write a review and then realised it might help if the owners take action to effect change.
One thing that was good were the 2 women that were looking after table service, very friendly and super efficient, really looked after each table with care and attention.

The food here is outstanding. The steaks are melt in the mouth and cooked to perfection. The desserts (although) we were too full looked mouth-watering. Lovely ambience.. amazing staff. Very friendly and attentive. The chef/ owner Gemma is a joy to meet. So humble and grateful for her success. Don't miss this special place the next time you're out . 💯

We took our daughter and boyfriend for an early dinner. Food was superb. Music a little loud. Light bulb was missing from the light on the wall at our table was missing and despite asking for a bulb to be put in nothing happened - other tables were unoccupied which were lighted but we were not offered to move there.

Yet again loved being back at Alexanders & Co, this time for lunch and it was just as good as before. Great energy about the places from customers and staff and the food was outstanding.

Still one of our favorite spots and really worth a visit.

They are such great value for money.

Thank you again.
