Been here on a Friday night a few times. It used to be a Beefeater pub but you'd never know it. Good range of beers (continental larger and changing real ales). Food looks great and I hear good things about their pizzas. Convenient for those wanting to meet half way between Richmond and Twickenham.

Regular live music - great blues duo I've seen there a couple of times, very mellow and friendly crowd.

The best place in London for an authentic Italian pizza! Giuseppe, the pizzaiolo known as "Beppe" is a star! You will not regret it.

Great atmosphere, you can really relax in The Alexander. Warm welcome from the owners, great food and drink. I look forward to another visit :)

We dined on a Saturday night with a large group.
Our pizza's were all undercooked, the lasagne had no meat but the calamari was fantastic.
The restaurant was full of families with young children which is rare in this part of town & great if you're out with kids.
The service was not great & our waiter was really grumpy.
Unless you want to dine with kids I'd stick to Ches's in st Margaret's for a superb pizza.
I won't be returning soon, too pricey!

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!
