The Yorkshire Evening Post Oliver Awards, renowned as one of the biggest and best accolades on the Leeds and Yorkshire food and drink scene, awarded Alexander’s Breakfasty Brunch ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Brunch Category at last night’s prestigious awards ceremony in Leeds.

Now in its 12th year, the Olivers are hotly contested, receiving hundreds of nominations for its 16 categories of awards. Whittled down to a short list of just 24 for each award by its celebrity judging panel comprising Stephanie Moon, Amanda Wragg and Simon Jenkins, last night’s event brought together Yorkshire chefs, from the region’s best bars and restaurants.

Our executive head chef, Paul Cunliffe who received the award on behalf of Alexander’s said: “It was an amazing night and it was great to see our more-ish breakfasty brunch menu take centre stage alongside BBC Look North presenters Harry Gration MBE and Tanya Arnold!

“We get so much positive feedback for our breakfasts and brunches with guests finding the whole experience so luxurious and delicious, it was great to have that officially recognised!”
