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 Bath Rugby training ground. Set in eight acres of beautiful land, Alice Park offers a family friendly playpark, community garden, boules piste, toilets, a new skate park and path circuit, and there is even limited 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 - however we are proud to say we are open every single day, rain or shine! If you are here, we will try and be here too.
There are regular football coaching days for the under 9's with local company Formula Football, rugby with RugbyTots, several fitness clubs and two tennis clubs, so plenty for the young - and young at heart.
Friday & Saturday nights the cafe stays open in the evenings till 9pm offering a free delivery service and @aliceparkpizza, 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, & 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 now there! We have worked really hard to develop a great community vibe, and try our best to make the park a community hub & perfect family destination; somewhere even Dad can enjoy himself.
We are a family run, 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.
The cafe has won numerous awards for the planters in the Bath in Bloom competitions, and as of July 2019, work was completed rejuvenating the pond as we worked tirelessly to improve this special place. We are now very proud to of our Wildlife Garden Pond area! Go have a look - don't nick the tadpoles - sit and relax and enjoy nature.
We have a full & comprehensive menu, from our very popular Classic Alice Full English Breakfast, through to home made soups - 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 fully licenced) Alice Park Cafe can provide what you're looking for. And when the weekend arrives, why not stay later? Alice park cafe is open every Friday & Saturday evening till 9pm. Kids can enjoy a proper meal from their own menu, alongside our fantastic burgers or one of our new hand-crafted pizzas, if you want to stay home instead, we can deliver to you on Friday & Saturday nights too!

“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!”
