A room with a view.

The Alex Brasserie occupies the first floor of The Alex (lift access), thus affording it magnificent panoramic sea views of Felixstowe's south beach, the principality of Sealand, and one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. This informal but snazzy venue offers fresh seafood, grill and classic brasserie style dishes. Open all day, every day, our a la carte menu is complemented by our weekly set price lunch menu, available noon till 6pm Monday to Friday, and Felixstowe's Catch of the Day on our specials boards. In season, you can see the lobster pot flags from your table.

Whilst we operate an informal "just turn up" policy we do understand that sometimes the reassurance of a reservation is preferable, therefore we do take a certain number of bookings. At busy times we have a greet and seat policy. In the event of a short wait you are welcome to enjoy a drink at the bar tables whilst you peruse the menu.

To make a reservation please call 01394 282958. We can also cater for large parties by arrangement, however, we are always open and do not generally accommodate private functions.



Father's Day 18th June

It's the day of the year when you can show dad just how much you love him. 
Buying him socks or a tie perhaps doesn't cover it so why not bring him to us and spoil him with a wonderful lunch or dinner with a beer or bottle of wine.

We are now taking bookings. Our full menu will be available along with Chef's specials.

If you can't make it Sunday, then you can always buy dad one of our smart Silver gift cards.
An ideal gift for dad to treat himself at any time. They come with a greetings card and can be used at any Yeo Group venue.
