With its chilled vibe, super friendly staff and great music, the Alice House in Queen’s Park creates a totally harmonious drinking and dining environment that’ll keep you coming back.
The Alice house has a warm, welcoming feel to it. The interior is modern, with rustic wooden tables, well-loved leather sofas, and a homely canopy of exposed lightbulbs casting a buttery glow over the place. The bar is simply designed and well stocked, with a great selection of bottled beers and London ales on tap, for the discerning beer drinker. It also has a great cocktail menu full of imaginative creations like their delightfully original ‘Blood and Sand’ (Monkey Shoulder, Cherry Jam and OJ) and wonderfully weird Jam Jar shooters, making a ‘swift one’ an impossibility.
Bustling on a weekend but relaxed on a work night, with a great playlist to boot, The Alice House is equally good for Saturday brunch as it is for a Thursday night steak and chips – Grilled flank steak with lovely hand-cut chips, horseradish cream, slow-roasted tomatoes and a handful of watercress, that is.
The menu is vast, serving up a mixture of gourmet pub classics and more refined, adventurous dishes (try the chicken liver parfait with crispy chicken skin,) and boasting a selection of desserts which could turn any tooth sweet (our favourite is the Lemon drizzle cake with roast plums and lemon curd.)
With an excellent price point (Mains start at £9.50, from £5.50 for desserts and starters), a real emphasis on customer care, and some seriously comfy sofas, the Alice house is definitely one to check out for a quick bite and a cheeky cocktail.
