For Hire


It's party time! Where's the best place for a party? Alice Park!

Yep - we proudly present the best party you've ever been to party! From full on wedding receptions, company get-togethers, private BBQ's, 21st, engagement, 50th's, 40th's and of course kids parties - we have done it all! It's the perfect family outdoor venue; fully licensed for all activities, an enclosed kids play area, and lots of space for sporting games. So what's the deal? Have a look.

Simply pop into the café to discuss your requirements, pay the deposit and look forward to the day!

All hire is subject to Covid legislation changes and we continually review official guidance.

Basic 'Dry' Hire

Ok, so you want to use the park but don't want to carry marquees, tables, chairs etc - so we do that bit. You get our new, big white marquee with a couple of trestle tables and 10 chairs, and that's your bit of the park secured for the day. It's in that bit just past the patio, so you are close enough to get that coffee you so deserve; after all, organising a birthday party is very thirsty work, true?

All day hire, from 11-4, is just £45. Please note that this does have to be paid in advance, and any bookings are only 'reservations' until paid for (we can't control the weather. And if I did, I wouldn't be doing this for a living now, would I?) Do what you want in there, although there are a couple of rules; firstly, please respect that we have an alcohol licence - a celebration bottle of bubbly is fine but any other alcohol should be bought from us. If you have any particular favourite tipple you want us to get in, then that's fine - we usually stock either Bath Ales or Box Brewery, Stella, individual wines, Sol, that kind of thing; cans or bottles, but no pints. We ain't no bar!

Second, we don't supply electricity to the marquee, unless of course it is booked, so any entertainment you have bought along must be acoustic. I am allowed to educate clients with soul and reggae music, but nobody else is!

Kids Parties

Our most common booking - obviously. Just add our 'marquee meal deal', which is a sandwich, packet of crisps and a juice or bottle of water for only £3 per child. Our minimum booking is 10 children, which saves you £9.50 on our normal 'meal deal'. Add an ice cream or lolly for just £2 extra, and there you go - Sorted. And you look like a really efficient parent! Book that balloon modelling kid and you have the perfect party!

Sandwiches are cheese, jam or ham, usually a mix unless specified.

Private Self Hire BBQ

We now offer a Dry Hire BBQ option, which is our huge gas BBQ and the marquee for just £125 including gas. Please note that we would like our BBQ back as clean as clean can be if that's ok!

Again, please feel free to decorate the marquee and please request 'the sides' on it if you desire. Usual rules apply, bottle of bubby is fine, but buy your beers from me!

We also expect that you do clear up after yourselves; we can supply you with a couple of black bags for all the rubbish. Please make sure that these are placed by the Recycling Bins by the park gates. Thanks very much. Appreciate it.


Think Alice is the perfect venue for a wedding? Yep, you are right. Have a look at this if you are not convinced yet!

Party BBQ

Sounds good but can't be bothered? Then let us do the BBQ for you! It's only £10.50 per head for sausage, burger, roll, cheese, salad, coleslaw and chips with a minimum booking of 10., plus the marquee hire of £45. Vegetarian options also available, however they are cooked on the same grill. Timed to suit - let us know when you want the food served, and we work backwards from then.

Some dietary requirements are possible, please ask in advance

Cafe Hire

Planning something a bit bigger? Why not take over the whole cafe area! We offer private hire function from 4pm until 11pm. This gives you exclusive use of the cafe (after 5pm) and the seating area and the marquees as required, offering seating for 100, including 20 under the canopy and 10 inside the cafe, and comfortable spacing for up to 250. This unique setting provides a superb base palette to create your own stunning event - and all options are available! We can then add food, drink, BBQ, DJ, entertainment etc as required. Each package is bespoke and tailored to your personal requirements, and the base hire is just £950.
