The Alexandra Hotel  

The Alexandra was the birthplace of Derby CAMRA way back in 1974. Much has changed since then: the pub was closed by Shipstones, bought by Batemans, then developed and subsequently purchased by Castle Rock.

In many ways the recent history of the Alex has mirrored the success of CAMRA, reflecting the revival of real ale in unspoilt pub surroundings, and perhaps best exemplified by the award of "CAMRA East Midlands Pub of the Year" in 1994 (and runner-up in 1995!).

The Alex's renown is justifiably founded on its 8 handpumps. The appeal these days is considerably more broad-based. They offer simple, yet satisfying sustenance, and even a bed for the night, if you need it! Mark Robins and his staff extend the warmest of welcomes to customers old and new.

You can choose between the traditional public bar and comfortable lounge, or sit outside - weather permitting, though it is on a busy road.

Food is simple at the moment - cobs and pies. They even occasionally have their exclusively produced Hemlock Pork Sausage, meaty and substantial made with Hemlock Real Ale.

If you want to hold a function or party the lounge can be booked for special events at lunchtimes or evenings. They aim to be as flexible as possible to fit in with particular requirements.

Regional Beer Evenings and Special Promotions are regularly featured.

Occasionally there is live entertainment - but nothing too loud.
