I would avoid this place at all costs in future, we had a group booking of 9, including 4 children - 3 of which were hit with food poisoning. Some points below on our visit.

Hi, thanks for your feedback and good to speak to you directly to rectify the issues you had with your visit.
We popped into the Alex on a Friday after being enticed by their £3.50 cocktails before dinner. Don't bother! They can do beer, wine but anything out of the ordinary give it a miss! A real shame as I've had lots of good times here....More

Hi, thanks for your feedback and sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your cocktail on Friday night. When your husband came to the bar and ordered your cocktail I informed him that the cocktail was served in a can and not in a...More

What more could you ask from a pub? If you want gourmet food go elsewhere. If you want a beer a great pub food this is your place. Staff are excellent and the food is bloody great. Actually a lot better than a lot of...More
We were a large group of chaps on rugby tour. We had a kitty of over £1000, which we were planning to spend in here. They accepted our business then decided to bar us for no explicable reason. We were boisterous but entertaining, and other...More
I go to The Alex regularly and I have to say they are committed to choice and to keeping the place interesting. Drinks prices are reasonable.
On Fridays and Saturday nights, there never appears to be enough staff, waiting for a drink can take, legitimately,...More
