Booked Alexander's for my husbands 40th. Did have a bit of a problem booking over the phone so eventually booked online...which was easy! Staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and accommodating. I brought in silly things for our table in the morning and it was set up really well when we arrived. The food was lovely, just right... More

A once reputable music and comedy venue that has lost its appeal due to having very poor event management systems in place. Communication and management surrounding a recent event was so poor that I will never go there again. The staff on the whole seem willing and helpful yet bound by a restrictive management. Closing early and telling a skilled... More

We had lunch here on Easter Sunday and it was very good! I'm not sure if it was because it was a Bank Holiday weekend but there were a limited number of roast dinners available - they appear to be by pre-booking only. The food was good - tender roast beef with plenty of fresh vegetable and Yorkshire pud for... More

Went for the comedy night. Wanted to eat from the main menu but told that this was not allowed. To book a table to see the comedy, we had to eat off the set menu which I was very dubious about because I don't like to be told what to eat! However, not disappointed in the least! Food was excellent.... More

We enjoyed a brilliant set meal before listening to the fabulous Eleanor McEvoy! One member of our group needed a gluten free meal. Alexanders couldn't have been more helpful. They were very attentive making sure the gluten free meal was as good as the set meal for the evening. Thank you Alexander's, we will certainly be back!

We went to the comedy night and booked in to have a meal to ensure that we got a seat. We did not have high expectations of the food, having eaten there years ago and found it to be just ok. However, this time it was lovely! Despite there being no choice, other than a vegetarian option, all 6 of... More

This place was smaller than expected, but still a great place to visit. Best on a summers night, the seating area extends outside. the live band were very good,although, people should be mindful that the bands are there to be listened to, not shouted over.

The open mic nights at Alexanders on a Tuesday night are fantastic. There is a wonderful atmosphere, good nibbles and great performances by unknown artists to make the time fly by. If you are in Chester check it out!
