Quality entertainment for the price of the ticket. Really funny and varied acts. Good seats available in a friendly atmosphere. Only a short queue at the bar but not bad for the number of people there. Yet to eat there but have been back for more comedy!

We booked Alexander's for our Engagement party as it was a local venue that we enjoyed going to and because they didn't charge silly prices to hire the venue. Alexander's provided the buffet which again was very reasonably priced and catered to the needs of what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and they did their very best in... More

A group of us went to watch the Friday night comedy acts at Alexander's. It was fantastic and I would highly recommend going ASAP! I laughed myself to tears countless times! The staff were lovely too, kindly helping out with providing extra chairs etc. Unfortunately, the good bar staff were let down by one member in particular. As I patiently... More

A very pleasant afternoon and the acoustic duo singing Christmas songs were great. Drinks were reasonable and staff friendly - there was a nice atmosphere. I have to admit I didn't use the toilets which I saw a poor comment about; My only issue was the children. Great to have families there enjoying the festive spirit but that was where... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are new owners of just over a year and one of the first things we did to the place was to replace the toilets so you can ignore any comments made from before we bought the venue. You may prefer one of the ticketed evenings when no children are... More

We've always loved this place, so much that we chose it for our reception venue. It is perfectly located in the city centre to show off all of Chester's heritage, but tucked away a little to make it a little more secluded and intimate. To be able to use the courtyard and the back garden as well as the bar... More

A surprise for my 'the beatles' loving boyfriend! A great little venue for live music. Dance floor surrounded by tables, option for food pre-gig. Fantastic beer selection! Good decor. Great atmosphere!

Booked to see Gordon Haskell with dinner. The meal was a Xmas dinner with prawn cocktail to start turkey main and Xmas pud to follow, the food was well cooked and very well presented. £15 for a bottle of wine(not bad). The staff were very polite and helpful. The show was excellent, first on was a trio can't remember there... More
