A little tranquil gem on the eastern side of Bath; Alice Park is 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. Set in eight acres of beautiful land, Alice Park offers 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 there is the award-winning fully licenced cafe.
Although the park is always open, the café closes at 4.30ish during the winter and 5.30ish in the summer - it all depends on the weather - so if you are planning a trip, then phone ahead to check! If you are here, we will try and be here too.
There are regular football coaching days for the under 9's, fitness clubs and two tennis clubs, so plenty for the young - and young at heart.
Friday Night is Alice Night - we are open til 9pm and offer a free delivery service and our own hand-made pizzas! So if the weather is good, come on down and enjoy the open space and if it's a bit iffy, stay warm indoors and let us deliver to you!
We host many family friendly, community based events, and we would be delighted to welcome you here, so 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 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 recently completed the process of rejuvenating the pond as we work tirelessly to improve this special place. As of July 2019, we are very proud to present our Wildlife Garden Pond area! Go have a look - don't nick the tadpoles - sit and relax and enjoy nature.
We are a family friendly business with great ties to our 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 you 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 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 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. And if it's Friday, why not stay later? Kids can have a proper meal, our fantastic burgers or one of our new hand-crafted pizzas, as we are open til 9pm. If you want to stay home instead, we can deliver to you on Friday nights! We are also available for hire; especially private hire, birthday parties and even weddings, we have packages to suit every budget from gazebo hire to a full café takeover! 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, festivals, school events, car meets, fundraising activities etc get in touch through the cafe or www.alicemoves.co.uk.
See you in the park!

“As a ward councillor for Lambridge since 2003, I have seen Alice Park and its cafe transformed from a half-forgotten green space with a catering facility to a vibrant, exciting community hub. The proprietor of the cafe, Tony, has my full support at all times and his initiative and work ethos has to be experienced to be believed.”
