A celebrated institution that was shortlisted by Ulster Tatler as Restaurant of the Year in 2021, Alexander's & Co is taking the traditional pub and giving it an upmarket, sophisticated refurb.
Like a farmer's cottage that has been given some much-needed TLC, Alexander's is a vision of handcrafted, rustic charm. Every detail has been considered, from the beautifully sculpted wooden dining tables to the handmade stools, twinkling chandelier and the cosy sofas that line the edges of the dining room. Effortlessly cosy with a luxurious kind of intimacy, Alexanders isn't any old pub; it is a treasured part of the Holywood fabric, and its award-studded history speaks for itself.
Such a place demands a decent amount of time for you to sample all the best bits. Start off with some light bites that include delectable small plates of Beef Cheek with a hoisin and Celeriac Fondant, Cantabrian Anchovies and some Polenta Fries with Pickled Pomegranate. Alternatively, get your loved ones around a sharing plate filled with Artisan Cheese, Bread and Locally Sourced Cured Meats.
As for big plates, they're bringing out the major pub players with luxurious trimmings. Think Katsu burgers with Kimchi and sweet potato fries, Bangers and Mash and a Pan Fried Hake Cassoulet.
