About the Pub

This Young's & Co Pub/Hotel previously known as the Pope's Grotto takes its name from the poet (1688-1744) who had a house near by. The pubs name was to be controversially renamed the 'Alexander' after refurbishment in 2009. However, after the Strawberry Hill Residents' Association launched a petition to try and convince the PubCo to retain the original 150 year old historic name, a compromise was reached and it was called The Alexander Pope. The original Pope's Grotto pub was built by Young & Bainbridge in 1852 on part of Alexander Pope's old garden, but it was destroyed by bombs in the Second World War and the present building was opened in 1959. It was completely refurbished and upgraded in 2000 into a hotel with 32 bedrooms. Part of the front patio has been enclosed in glass to create a conservatory. Breakfast is served 7-10am weekdays. Tuesday is quiz night 8pm start.
