“The best local ever!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Roger and the team at The Aleksander are awesome and the food (Italian) is fantastic, soooo pleased this is my local! Great for families, great for date night - great for any occasion really! Awesome choice of beers, wines and the best Calzone pizza this side of Naples! (The chef's are Italian so they know what they are doing!).
Love this place!

“Perfect pub for tots in tow!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Our lively group of four moms and four very busy toddlers had a ball on Friday evening. The food was superb and came out very quickly (ideal when you have a limited window to wolf down a few bites). The standout feature of this pub is how well little ones are catered for - excellent kiddies menu, toys and colouring, high chairs and super friendly (and patient and accommodating) staff who even moved furniture around to help us get our buggies past. Luckily fellow patrons seem to appreciate that this is a child friendly pub so we weren't made to feel anything less than welcome. (Don't let that put you off if you don't have children - there's enough hubbub and vibe to not even notice the little ones if you don't want to ;o).

“Ignore the spiteful reviewer - Great pub”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This is a great place to eat and drink, lovely proper pizza's and great selection of beers. Ignore the previous review of a customer who was very rude and obviously doesn't like being put in his place. By for one of the best pubs in the area, a must visit.

“Great Pub”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This is a great pub just over Richmond Bridge on the Twickenham side of the river. It has a great selection of craft beers on tap at any one time and the wine list is very good. I highly recommend trying a pizza! The service is friendly! I noticed there was a poor review for this pub, I suppose your always going to get someone not happy, but every time I have been to the pub its been a great friendly family atmosphere.
