Fantastic vegan food and relaxed atmosphere 😎
Aug 2021 • Couples
Oh my days, this vegan food is good. We ordered the sizeable Swine fries and nacho starters, which were both delicious. We needed a bit of a break before the main course, and sadly by the time we were ready the kitchen was closed. We will certainly return to finish what we started! The new garden room is a great addition for chilly nights/ winter drinking and dining. So pleased to have this fine pub in our doorstep.

Decent pub serving great burgers
Jul 2021
This place was near to where we were staying in the city so we called in for lunch. Premises is very Covid secure, Friendly staff from the get-go. Great little beer garden. Ordering by app was quick and easy to follow. Staff came to check that there hadn;t been any problems with ordering. We'd all ordered burgers - there was no delay and the food was fabulous. We would recommend this pub to others.

Choice boozer
May 2021
Great pub - been there many times over the years and I seem to have been there more during the pub openings between the lockdowns than any other around Cambridge. The staff during the pandemic have been excellent, very strict but fair and the service has been very good. As always, the burgers have been lovely. Can't fault it really - great job guys.

Great fish pie
Jan 2020
I have enjoyed the burgers at the Alex but not tried the Mains so I ordered fish pie .I was amazed at how big it was.It arrived sizzling hot and really enough for two.It had a cheesy top and a very generous amount of fish without being bulked up with potato like they often are.
The pub was very crowded but the staff seemed to manage to get the food out reasonably quickly.
Very good value and delicious. I will be back.

Lunchtime treat
Dec 2019
I have been to the Alex recently a couple of times at Lunchtime.The reason is to enjoy a Cajun chicken burger.Really tasty burger and Lunchtime Mon-Fri you Buy one and you get the second one for a Pound.Bargain. Although the menu of burgers is small,there are some tasty treats awaiting the Lunchtime diner.Beers are on offer as well,sadly you dont get the second one for a pound!

Great food, nice atmosphere, no roast left 😯
Oct 2019 • Solo
Was feeling the need for a proper Sunday roast so, googled "Roast Sunday Cambridge"..... don't do it! Not without safe search on anyway! When I eventually got the results I was after, I noticed the Alex, 350yrs away and apparently did an excellent Sunday lunch. Popped in but unfortunately it was gone 3pm by this time and they had sold out 😥 anyway, decided to order something else instead so went for the Sirloin steak, with chips, coleslaw, and a cpl of onion rings..... huge ones, looked like a pair of my granny's earrings! It was all very tasty, steak cooked perfectly, chips were VERY good (am always suspicious when it states in menu chips have skin on) and coleslaw was great too. All in all, well worth the trip out but, next time I want a bloody roast not a steak!!

I couldn't really fault this place. All was good about it. I could moan about the prices, but this is Cambridge....

Mulled Cider & Mac n Cheese
Dec 2018 • Friends
Recently refurbished, The Alexander is a clean little boozer.

They do the best mulled cider I’ve ever had (which I’ve remembered since Christmas time!!). Also had an excellent dinner there - proper American mac & cheese.

Standard prices for Cambridge Green King’s (higher than average).

Expensive beer
May 2019 • Couples
The beer here is very expensive. £5 30 for a pint of Estrella is ridiculous though service is friendly and responsive. Have to say we decided though after a few visits not to return given the ludicrous prices. Agree with a previous reviewer that it's very irritating to be caught up between music being played in the pub (which is good) and noisy radio in the kitchen. Had been thinking of coming for the good burgers but the beer prices are insane.
