The Alexandra "don't be alone on Christmas day" initiative
Time: 12pm to 3pm
The Alexandra pub in Wimbledon is again holding a free Christmas Day dinner with all the trimmings, cake, cheese and a tipple for anyone without the family and other acquaintances to enjoy at Christmas, between 12-3pm.
For seven years now we've been doing our "don't be alone on Christmas day" initiative. In the early days we used to invite everyone over for a free beer or two, but the last few years we've included a free Christmas dinner as well. That's not a mis-print, if you're on your own on Christmas day you can come to the Alex and we'll give you a Christmas dinner absolutely free of charge.
Loads of folks come over (last year we fed 62 people a 3 course dinner with some beer/wine chucked in) and I've no doubt we'll do more this time around. We absolutely guarantee you that it's not some kind of clever marketing ploy, we're not trying to suck you into some hidden loyalty scheme or any of that nonsense. We don't want your email address, we don't need your contact details or any of that, and frankly we don't mind if you've never been in the pub before or never intend coming in again.
Free means free, we fund our little ventures from donations of turkeys and stuff from the local shops, people bringing in wine, beer, our suppliers being brilliantly generous, cheese companies sending us cheese, people baking us Christmas cakes, making chutney, sending sherry and stuff. You don't have to book or anything, you just need to turn up at some point on Christmas day between midday and about 3pm, from there I promise you we'll look after you.
You absolutely don't have to be lonely if you can get yourself to the Alex, we promise you you'll have a belter of a Christmas day. You deserve it, we all do.
Limited transport may be available if booked in advance
