About Us

The Alexandra Tavern has operated as a pub for over 150 years, after first opening in 1864. The pub’s history holds great interest for real ale and brewery enthusiasts having strong links with famous local and national breweries, with Bullard’s, Courage and Watney’s breweries all having a stake in its past.

The Alexandra takes it's name from Alexandra of Denmark, the wife of King Edward VII. She is remembered in Norwich for unveiling the statue of Edith Cavell in Tombland.

The pub has been been occupied by the current owners, Anita and James 'Tiny' Little since 1986.
