Just down the road from Wimbledon tube station. Very large young's pub. 3 different bars on the ground floor and a roof terrace bar as well. Up to 8 real ales and food served.

A large traditional pub with 3 distinct rooms round a central bar, wood-panelled with a mixture of tabled and lounge furniture and a smattering of TV screens throughout. Upstairs is The Loft bar, with a roof terrace and burger restaurant. Despite the usual Young's pre-occupation with food, this is a good drinkers' pub also and there are usually several guest ales alongside their own beers, in this case being Surrey Hills Shere Drop, Wimbledon SW19 and St Austell Proper Job.

Just a short walk from Wimbledon station on the main road leading towards Wimbledon Village, the Alexandra is a large High Street Young's pub which has retained a pleasing multiple room format. The main bar is all about the dark wood in the shape of the floors, walls and furniture as well as a few bare brick sections of wall, all of which combines to create quite a nice, cosy feel to what is essentially the public bar. There is a lot of standard table and chair seating as well as the odd padded bench here and there. A fireplace houses an old wood burner, but aside from that, there's not a lot to distract the eye and perhaps with that in mind they have installed a number of plasma screen TV's which were showing Premiership football to a sizeable crowd. On the left hand side of the pub is the 'Green Bar', which is carpeted and has some comfy looking chairs and a proper fire which was lit on my early evening visit. A few of the local's moved into this area after the football finished and I got the impression that this was a popular spot with the regulars. You can access a third room from here, which seemed to offer some quite plush seating and is perhaps used more for formal dining. There were also signs for an upstairs area with a roof terrace.
Beers available were Young's Ordinary and Special, Sambrooks Wandle and Junction, Wells Bombardier and St Austell Tribute. I found my pint of Junction to be in good shape, although I did balk somewhat at the idea of paying £3.75 for a pint of bitter brewed just up the road. Staff seemed nice enough and had a good rapport with the regulars.
Wimbledon town centre doesn't have the greatest selection of pubs for a place of its size and I've always found the Alexandra to be one of the better options. That said, it's not exactly inspiring to find another Young's pub and there's not too much to get excited about, so all in all its a solid, if unspectacular, option.
