Pub gifts FREE three-course meal and wine so no one is alone this Xmas

No strings, no catch!

If you had to draw an image of Christmas Day, what would you doodle; perhaps everyone opening pressies or tucking into food around the table?

For some folk, their December 25 looks very different, with just themselves for company.

However, to help repaint their picture of isolation into one of connection, a London boozer is inviting people to enjoy a free three-course meal and wine on them.

You read that right, no catch, The Alexandra in Wimbledon is serving complementary food and booze so that no one has to fly solo this year.

It’s actually a tradition they have been honouring since 2014, on their mission to beat loneliness for those who happen to be without loved ones over the festive season.

With their friendly door left wide open, you don’t even need to book ahead.

Simply turn up on Christmas Day between 12pm and 3pm and you’ll be gifted a delicious meal, alongside some vino, and the chance to socialise on tables of four, six or eight.

Shouting about their upcoming feast, a member of the team tweeted: “Our ‘don’t be on your own on Christmas day’ dinner is going to be bigger than ever.

“No strings, no catch, if you’re going to be on your own on Christmas Day, don’t be.

“Come to us instead for a FREE dinner, with FREE vino. COME!!”

Offering a further olive branch, after one social networker replied saying they live in Islington and will struggle to travel to Wimbledon, the pub said they would organise a lift.

As if sprinkling their Yuletide cheer isn’t enough, the bar also hosts MeetUpMondays, with a spread of free tea and coffee, free bingo, and free sarnies – and, crucially, a good old chinwag.

Seriously, what heroes.

So, to chow down on some turkey and all the trimmings while pulling a cracker or three, get yourself to this address on Crimbo: The Alexandra, 33 Wimbledon Hill Rd, SW19 7NE.

Happy holidays!
