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, 364 days of the year, 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. Our booking policy:

There is no need to book, however we do understand that sometimes the reassurance of a reservation is preferable, therefore we do take a certain number of bookings (we book out in full on special occasions such as Mother's Day, Easter Sunday etc.).  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.  If you are off to enjoy a show at The Spa Pavilion we recommend booking and allowing 2 hours before the start of your show.

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.
