When it's time to get convivial, head for Alexandra. In our historic surroundings, laughter and conversation flow freely. And the drink in your glass tastes as fresh and vibrant as the climate under which its makers gathered their ingredients.

For autumn 2015, we've gathered a collection of ten superb aromatic gins. These are modern gins, flavoured with elusive botanicals, and served with garnishes that compliment the flavours and aromas of each gin.

We've also been fine-tuning our serves. In a Nicholson's pub, your gin, mixer, and garnish come together as a perfect example of the gin-maker's art. You could say that we've gone back to our roots. If our founder, William Nicholson, were to walk into one of our pubs, he'd recognise the skills and the atmosphere. We're as good as – possibly better than – his own original gin palaces.

Our beer and cider menu paints the autumn in shades of burnished gold. We have a selection of the world's finest craft beers and the UK's brightest ciders.

We bring you beers from the west coast of America, from Belgium, and from Scotland. In contrast, our cider selection takes you on a voyage of discovery that's nearer home – into the sparkling cider orchards of Herefordshire and Somerset.
