Food Glorious Food

At the Alexandra Hotel we are passionate about food and believe that eating is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We embrace the use of carefully selected local and seasonal quality foods to enable our chefs to create the most delicious dishes from our kitchens. Our local heritage as a historic fishing town results in an abundance of sensational local produce and we want to give all our guests a true taste of this in everything we serve.

When sourcing our food, we look for produce which stands out from the rest – from local farms to artisan producers from across the Westcountry, we are excited to share our food story with you. As a result of this our menus may be subject to change due to seasonal availability.
