Having previously worked alongside his father running another Everards pub, Alex took over the reins at The Dove, Evington in 2020.

Alex trained as a chef in the Royal Navy and then joined his father to work in the kitchen of the family pub. “I worked as a chef but was keen to learn about other parts of the business with the aim of having my own place eventually.” Following an opportunity to act as holding landlords with Everards, Alex knew he wanted something more permanent and when The Dove became available at the start of lockdown in 2020, it was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up. “The stars aligned, and The Dove became available just at the start of lockdown, which gave us the time and opportunity to refurb and put our own stamp on what is definitely a beautiful pub. We love it here.”

Since taking over at The Dove, Alex and partner, Rhe, have been able to put their own mark on the pub. “I really enjoy being an independent business owner, showcasing our own style and passion through day to day operations as well as bigger events! We have a beer & cider festival coming up for the Queen’s Jubilee, plans for live music outside, and we’re excited to show what we’re all about (hopefully with some sunshine). Meeting people from all walks of life always keeps each day interesting as well and I enjoy priding myself on giving the highest standard of service to everyone that walks through the doors.”
