I always love coming to Alec’s. The staff, service and food are excellent. I’ve been a few times in the last year when COVID has allowed and there has been a fantastic balance between safety and having a lovely dining experience. I wish everyone the best of luck when they’re allowed to open fully as dining here is a treat and long May it continue.

As always we had a lovely time. The staff, food and atmosphere are what makes this restaurant special. In these difficult circumstances to still be providing the same service is commendable. We would especially like to thank the lady maitre’d who spotted us looking rather windswept by the open door and very kindly moved us to another table when one became available without us even having to ask....It’s those little touches that make the difference.

What a great experience, especially after lockdown. Great menu and fab dishes. Service was efficient, friendly and helpful. The outlook was a natural joy, nicer even than being indoors. I can’t wait to go back again with more friends.

Staff was very kind and polite, when we sat down our waitress very kindly offered my children blankets to keep warm. Brilliant service and a very calm and relaxing atmosphere. Food was amazing and definitely worth every penny, would recommend Alec's restaurant for any occasion.

We came for a special occasion and the room was dressed lovely so the circumstances were in. We didn’t receive our olives but was charged, my partner asked for single whiskeys and got charged double. Not knowing what he had I then had to drive. Food was lovely but definitely smaller then last time.

From start to finish we had a fabulous dining experience, from front of house to the friendly and efficient waiters. Not forgetting that the food was exceptional. The extra touch of remembering that we were celebrating 3 birthdays was also really appreciated. Thanks Alec’s - as always you didn’t disappoint!

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole dining experience, as did the rest of my party of five. Food and service fantastic, ambience a little strange due to Covid restrictions....but hey they are tough times.

Despite the Covid restrictions everything was perfect. Our table hostess informative and charming, attentive but not too much. The menu though somewhat reduced had all the old favourites plus some new additions. We had originally thought that our two hour time slot would leave us feeling rushed but this wasn’t the case. All in all a very positive experience.
