2 for 1 at The Alex

The Alex make everything in-house, from the first piece of bread that you’re given when you sit down to the ice cream that tops off your meal. Their fish is delivered fresh every day sourced from day boats from the beautiful south east coast of England. All meat is sourced from the best organic farms that provide the best provenance.

In the summer they offer excellent al-fresco dining in their garden. They pride themselves on the quality of the drinks they serve, from fine wines, champagnes and cocktails through to the coffees and teas. They have one of the best back bars in London in terms of variety and quality.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Bank Holidays or Celebration Days including Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day etc.

    I've lived in the area for some years and I still think of the Alex as a pub. But the food is anything but pub food - it really was extremely good. I enjoyed the steak with triple cooked chips. I had a gorgeous and unusual chocolate dessert I have no hesitation in recommending the Alex and I'm looking forward to finding an occasion to go back. "

    Went for a mid week lunch as a virgin diner at this restaurant and was not disappointed. The Alex is bright and airy with very welcoming decor and furnishings; food presentation excellent, tasty and plentiful. Service courteous and friendly.
    The menu is varied and interesting in a good way. I gather it gets very busy at the w/end but we were there on a quite Thursday. Decent value ( better still with a TC!). Will definitely return. "

    The food was good and excellent value with the Tastecard. Only issue is if you don't like your beef on the rare side as mine was very pink. The crumble was DELICIOUS!

    Service was a little slow initially- we had to ask for bread and then chase up for the bill once we had finished.

    However, all in all a good meal. "
