Taste of the West 2012 Winner – Silver Award
“The combination of good local produce and superb preparation resulted in a delicious meal that would be hard to fault…The Alexandra’s reputation for excellent food is, in our opinion, very well deserved…A charming hotel restaurant serving top-quality dishes which celebrate local produce” ‘Dorset’ Magazine
With both an award winning wine cellar and restaurant, the food and wine at the Alexandra ensures a truly fine dining experience.
Whilst continually sourcing the best produce from local farmers and always looking for new and innovative ideas, our Executive Chef, Ian Grant and his team create dishes using a fusion of the traditional and the contemporary.
Ian became our Head Chef at the Alex in 2006. With a passion that Ian says “must be in the genes” (his father was a chef before him and sparked Ian’s interest in the business), Ian’s knowledge has also been gained in the kitchens of hotels such as London’s Park Lane ‘Sheraton’ and Newmarket’s 4 star, 2 AA rosette restaurant ‘Bedford Lodge’.
Our cellar has carefully chosen wines from some of the most notable vineyards around the world and also from the lesser known smaller ‘natural’ growers.
