SquareMeal Review of
The Alice House Queen's Park
Younger sibling of The Alice House in West Hampstead, this bar/gastropub hybrid brings the same mix of vintage good looks, jazzy vibes and zingy libations to Queen’s Park. Displays of Brit art,
hundreds of dangling light bulbs strung out across the ceiling, porcelain sinks filled with flowers and swathes of wood panelling set the tone, while the allcomers’ menu covers breakfast, brunch,
Sunday roasts, pub grub and more ambitious seasonal dishes – think chicken liver parfait with crispy chicken skin, rump of spring lamb with greens and cherry tomato stew or pan-fried gurnard with
warm green bean, fennel and new potato salad. Drinks are many and varied – from ‘jam jar’ shooters, kooky iced teapot punches and cocktail classics such as bramble to London-brewed beers from
Kernel and others, plus a nifty assortment of reasonably priced international wines.
