Thank you for your feedback regarding your meal in Alexander’s Pub.

I would like to apologise that the food did not meet with your expectations. The braised blade of beef is slow cooked for five hours which makes the meat very tender and flavoursome. We serve thousands of portions of this particular dish in banqueting events in the main hotel every year and the feedback has never been anything other than positive. I would like to clarify that we use fresh local ingredients in our dishes and the vegetables are no different. It is unclear from your review whether you expressed your dissatisfaction to the Pub team so that they could address your disappointment. We do not claim to be the cheapest option for eating out in Kendal but we do aim to offer a quality dining experience to all our guests.
