I'm a Mum of two boys living in Oxfordshire, enjoying lots of fun activities and writing about them when I get a chance.

The Alice House at Queen's Park

There are two Alice House venues in north London with this one at Queen's Park being the the new baby sister. Opened in 2010 The Alice House occupies a corner position visible from the entrance to the Queen's Park London Underground tube stop.

I visited on a busy Saturday lunchtime and stayed right through to the late afternoon. It was never overcrowded but had a constant buzz and full tables.

The Alice House feels both contemporary and vintage at the same time. Strung across the ceiling and creating their own modern art are the cables for the exposed lightbulbs, providing a bright room, as do the large glass windows. Even the ladies toilet has a cool vintage feel with a collection of old mirrors, luxury hand soap and large Belfast sinks.

They have a fantastic big bar, with a row of high bar stools, ideal to prop yourself up on and enjoy a cocktail. Behind the bar is a towering display of every possible spirit you could think of.

My husband and I both enjoyed the fish and chips. The beer battered cod was light and crisp and the hand cut chips as thick and tasty as they could be. I would definitely recommend. The rest of the menu looked great too and next time I'd like to visit on a Sunday to sample their roasts. You can choose from aged rib of beef, Gloucester Old Spot pork and crackling or Aldington leg of lamb.

Fish & Chips at the Alice House

If you're looking for a venue for a private party then the Library at the Alice House would be a good choice. It has a capacity for up to 60 people and retains the funky vibe found in the rest of the rest of the pub. A wood burning stove, antlers on the exposed brick walls and comfortable leather sofas all have just the right feel. This private room has all the mod cons with a large screen TV, karaoke and Wii.

The Alice House has a cool and funky feel to it but is also family friendly without being family themed. It's also the meeting venue for West London Tots, a mother, baby and toddler group.
