Burgers - Brews - Banter Thats what we do at The Alex, a backstreet boozer that does great beer, from local breweries. Great burgers, hand made on the premises every day and all we ask is that you bring the banter.

Hats off to the knife monkeys, we cannot get enough of your burgers, the filling combinations create the best taste of any burger anywhere, always consistent and always great service. Helpful and friendly bar staff, wonderful selection of ale and gin (served in a goblet).

Wanted to give it a try as I am now living a few minutes from this pub. Place is nice, personnel not particularly nice, but it's fine. Had a sunday roast, actually lamb, which was great. The potatoes and pudding were a little burnt, though....More
