Thanks for the review. The Rhubarb and Strawberry Cider is becoming very popular and I'm glad you enjoyed it. Do visit again especially when we have live music on. Checkout our web site to find entertainment to suit. Thanks again.

We stumbled across this place and paid £10 each to go back later for the 80s night with Dance Inc playing live.
Nice place inside with good friendly bar staff who gave us tips on other places to visit.
The group were good and we were up dancing. We had a great night and would go back again when in Chester.
Toilets are upstairs and the gents cleanliness was poor. Otherwise the place was clean.

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review and we are very glad you enjoyed your evening. Hope you will come and see us again if visiting the city.
Our toilets are cleaned every morning and again at 6pm. Sorry to say that sometimes guests make a mess and all I can ask is if a customer finds a mess before the staff do that they report it to a staff member so we can rectify the problem as soon as possible as we do take the cleanlyness of our facilities very seriously.

Thank you so much for writing a review we do appreciate you taking the time. We will endeavour to book them again but they are very popular so it may be awhile before they are free. Glad you had such a brilliant evening.

Hi. I agree that the comedy was particularly good on the evening of your visit and think you will find that the caliber of comedians we are getting at the moment is excellent. I appreciate you taking the time to right a review, thank you.

Seems like yesterday I saw Welsh Band "Man" but it was in fact 13 years ago! Alexander's is a small but well laid out gig venue which serves good food and drinks. We went on Mothers day which was a warm spring day and we were able to sit outside in the courtyard and listen to some fairly good folk music for free. Plenty of good tribute bands and other forms of music on offer. Worth supporting - and as the old saying goes "Keep Music Live.

Thank you for your review and welcome back. We bought Alexanders at the end of 2015 and since then we have had such pleasure listening to a variety of wonderful live music and getting to know local bands. We too were at the venue on Mothers Day and sat outside to eat our roast dinner and listen to the music and for me, as the 'mum', I had a lovely time. So nice to see the sun shining and with any luck we will have plenty more days sitting in the court yard this spring and summer.
