Burgers - Brews - Banter Thats what we do at The Alex, a backstreet boozer that does great beer, from local breweries. Great burgers, hand made on the premises every day and all we ask is that you bring the banter.

Another visit to this gem of a pub and another good time. After visiting two other pubs in the vicinity, we settled in this pub for dinner because of the atmosphere, burgers on offer and the price. A great choice of burgers, we had the...More

Hats off to the knife monkeys, we cannot get enough of your burgers, the filling combinations create the best taste of any burger anywhere, always consistent and always great service. Helpful and friendly bar staff, wonderful selection of ale and gin (served in a goblet).

I hadn't been there for a few years, and its been refurbed with hard surfaces, tiles etc. So no noise is absorbed. Style over substance. When we were there, kids were running around unchecked by parents. Not the kind of place to go for a...More
