It says something about eating out well in Felixstowe that in over 40 years of living just 14 miles away we have never eaten in the town before. Happily, our first experience was a good one and we are likely, if spared, to return to the Alex. Ate in the Brasserie at a window table overlooking the sea (get there early if you want one or book). Well prepared food, highly professional service and extremely good value for money, a really large portion of local mussels, for example, was only £10. Real baguettes that hadn't come from the freezer, very different to France these days!
Although our alcohol consumption was limited to Matron consuming a glass of Prosecco, as Bund was in charge of the motor car, the Wine List offered good choice at very reasonable prices. Wines supplied by Adnams too, a first class wine merchant for those who don’t know. Particularly gratifying is the simple purified carbonated water at just £1 per litre when the same stuff branded can easily cost £4!
Only slight criticism was that the food took a while to appear. As we were there at the start of service and the place was busy (queuing for the café downstairs) the implication is that later arrivals could have faced a long wait.
