Alice Park is a little tranquil gem on the eastern side of Bath; a wonderful place for whole families to enjoy. We are situated on the corner of the Gloucester Road and the A4, opposite the new McCarthy and Stone development. We've got eight acres of beautiful land, 6 tennis courts open to all, a family friendly playpark, community garden, boules piste, toilets and there is even some parking. Well behaved dogs (and children) are welcome off lead, and then there is the award-winning cafe.
Although the park is always open, the cafe is now on Winter Opening times, meaning we open everyday at 9.15 but now close at 4.30pm, a little later at weekends. It's cold and dark, you know.
There are regular football coaching days for the under 9's, aswell as RugbyTots on Saturdays and two tennis clubs, so plenty for the young - and young at heart.
The park is open every day, and so is the cafe - apart from Christmas Day - even in the rain! We close at 4.30 in the winter, and 5.30 in the summer, weather permitting. We host many family friendly, community based events, and we would be delighted to see you here; come and visit and find out what makes Alice Park the 'hidden gem'.
Hello and welcome to Alice Park, and of course the Alice Park Cafe.
Back in 2007, I was wandering around this stunning park with my dogs, and often thought 'wouldn't it be great if that tea chalet was open?'. So I decided to do something about it! I wanted to create a very special place, somewhere I would want to go either with or without kids (or dogs), and, although it has taken many years, we are getting there! We have now been here for over nine years, and hope you enjoy your visit. We have worked really hard to develop a great community vibe, and try our best to make the park a perfect family destination; somewhere even Dad can enjoy himself.
We have won awards for our planters in the Bath in Bloom competitions, and are in the process of rejuvenating the pond as we work tirelessly to improve this special place.
We are a family friendly business with great ties to the local community and a reputation for excellent customer service. Our aim is to provide quality food, drink and entertainment to those who visit the park - so it's stuff for kids, and stuff for adults too.
We have lots events and social gatherings, so make sure to follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to stay up to date with the latest news - we are 'aliceparkcafe' on everything. Registering with us gets you free stuff, early invites to big events, First Choice for tickets and exclusive offers. Register here for a Loyalty Card and enjoy the benefits!
We have a full and comprehensive menu, from our very popular Full Alice English Breakfast, through to home made soup- along with proper chips, paninis, toasties and even our own brand of locally made, school compliant meals for kids - LittleScoffs! If you get a moment, check out the website www;littlescoffs.co.uk. Our influential FLOG food philosophy (Fairtrade, Local, Organic and Good For You) means that you can enjoy high quality food that won't send the kids crazy with E numbers!
We are open every day from 9.15am (10am on Sundays) so, whether you're after an early morning full English Breakfast or a relaxing afternoon Prosecco (yes, we are fullly licenced) Alice Park Cafe can provide what you're looking for. We are also available for hire; especially private hire, birthday parties and even weddings, so be sure to pop into the cafe and say hello!
Finally, if you can't make it here, but love what we do, then book Alice Moves - it's the Alice Park Cafe Coffee, Ice Creams and Music all in our very smart Vito Van! Perfect for private functions, car meets, fundraising activities etc get in touch through the cafe or www.alicemoves.co.uk
See you in the park

“People are surprised when I tell them there's a licensed bar and music at Alice Park cafe. They've cultivated a grown-up atmosphere that allows families and sensible adults to enjoy the park and actually works against the colonisation by cider-drinking youths! I also think the wider influence has had a positive impact on the sports facilities like the tennis courts (which were somewhat neglected before). Well done to Tony!”
