A 19th Century pub with a lovely restaurant serving homely dishes by Chef Director Michael Davies. Using top quality produce, and we've heard the Sunday Lunch is fab, where some of the menu is for two, great for a pleasant lunch and a brilliant destination to host an event to make memories.
Alice House has not one location but two, one in Queen's Park and the other in West Hampstead. Alice House has a cosy atmosphere, which is great for brunches, quiz nights and Sunday Lunch, which is a great price.

With beautiful comfort foods after a long walk around Hyde Park or St.James's Park. A favourite pub for locals. Grenadier, named after soldier Cedric, was a man who was playing cards and got caught cheating, then, as a result, was published by death. People stick money to the ceiling to help Cedric pay what he owes.
