Ate evening meal in here on two occasions. Not the biggest menu but the food we ordered was of good quality and ample portions. Staff were friendly and polite. Would use again.

Simple menu but with a good variety. Lovely setting, very cosy and located right next to the hotel which is very handy for lazy days when you don't want to venture too far and just enjoy the hotel. Food was great and service very friendly.

we had paid for our parents to stay at the castle Green hotel for one night, so rather than drive for miles we ate at Alexanders in the grounds of the hotel. There was 10 of us and they put us on a long table and this was very nice, we has dropped a cake off earlier and some balloons... More

Had planned to go to Romney's however they had a wait of over 1 hour for a table. Decided to give Alexanders a try, haven't been for a long time. Efficient service and not too busy. We had 2 Sunday Roast Beef dinners which were very nice and our boys had Children's Fish and Chips and a Children's Sausage and... More

Good to go to for a decent, filling lunch. Service is good and nice to get out of town centre for some lovely food and a more relaxed environment.

We ate here on two evenings during our stay at the Castle Green Hotel. On one evening we had a snack and on the other dinner. On both occasions we had nice tables near or next to the window and the restaurant has a nice ambiance. The bar area is dark, but the restaurant is light and airy and nicely... More

Well, we decided, on the spur of the moment as the weather was so nice, to visit Alexanders. Upon our arrival we were seated at a lovely table in the window, with stunning views of the trees and distant fells. We had the Sunday roast lamb which was delicious, the gravy was superb. We had deserts too, bread & butter... More

A pleasant enough place with superb views looking towards the northern hills of the Lake District. On this occasion, my partner & I ordered the lamb, to say they were tasteless is an understatement, they were both lumps of fat & gristle, in short they were virtually inedible. When the waitress asked if we had enjoyed the meal, the fact... More

Thank you for reviewing Alexanders, please accept my sincere apologies for your disappointing experience. The evening you ate was the launch of our new menu and I apologise that the lamb was not up to scratch. We have since reviewed both supplier and cooking process and I feel it is much improved. The waitress that served you would also like... More
