Review of the month – Alice House, Queen’s Park
Longtime fixture on the Queens Park scene, cosy watering hole ‘Alice House’ holds a prime spot on Salusbury Road, just opposite the station. It welcomes locals and after work drinkers through its doors for great beers on tap, craft beer on draught and by the bottle, a tempting wine and cocktail menu, and as we discovered when QPF popped in for a weekend lunch, first rate Sunday roasts.
Walking through the pub the atmosphere was breezy and relaxed and once seated by the friendly staff, and having saved ourselves for proper lunch, everything on the menu looked tempting.
We kicked things off with a starter of a creamy burrata and a yummy homemade hummus paired with tasty toasted bread. I opted for the roast beef with Yorkshire puddings, generously doused in rich gravy, accompanied by cabbage and carrot. The topside was tasty and tender, potatoes were crisp and crunchy and the carrots in particular were just as you’d want them – with a bit of resistance, a hint of honey and a lot of flavour. My husband went for the roast pork belly, also with fluffy Yorkshire puddings, plus the same sides – his plate was returned completely empty, which says it all! Our youngest enjoyed the kids’ Sunday roast chicken, while our eldest savored what he declared the juiciest burger he’d ever tasted.
Due to the generous portions we just about had room to share some flavoursome coconut and vanilla ice creams|.
So the food was great, but as for the whole Alice House experience, the staff were attentive, and super helpful, the pub had a lovely Sunday vibe and with a mixed crowd it felt really open and inclusive. Great for both families and friends, and not somewhere we had been for a while, it felt like the perfect spot to settle in and lose track of
time and enjoy another gem of Queen’s Park.
