This Salusbury Road pub and restaurant is one of two Alice Houses in these here parts - there's another, the original, over in West Hampstead. This Queen's Park spot opened in 2010, with bare brick walls, exposed filament lighting, leather chesterfields and a pretty serious amount of wood providing the shabby-chic decor.
The food menu focuses on gastropub fare - think flank steak with smoked butter, watercress and hand-cut chips, Barnsley chops with Jersey royals, little peas and mint, or poshed-up fish and chips with mushy peas. Lighter bites such as a warm Scotch egg with piccalilli, or lamb croquettes with a mint yoghurt do brisk business at the bar.
There's a global feel to the wine menu, with worlds old and new evenly represented. A good selection of bottled and draught beers includes Meantime London lager, Kernel pale ale, Camden Hells and stouts and lagers from Crate.
