Unique Spaces within The Alice

While they share the same menus, within The Alice there are various distinct bars and areas to enjoy, including:

The Alice Bar

The Alice Bar offers a broad selection of wines, craft beers and spirits. Choose from speciality house cocktails including a Randolph Gimlet – in homage to the hotel or The Coeur de Lion, named after Richard the Lionheart who was born in Beaumont Place in the 12th Century, roughly where The Randolph stands today.

Morse Bar

Preserving the building’s heritage and original design elements such as oak wooden panelling, our Morse bar offers a broad range of bespoke and classic cocktails, wines and speciality beers.

The Snug

Relax in the intimate “snug”, a cosy nook between the restaurant and private dining with a bohemian spin on a traditional English library space.

Afternoon Tea in the Drawing Room & Lancaster Room

Enjoy a quintessentially English afternoon tea served with a glass of English sparkling wine.


Menu Illustrations

Illustrator John Broadley created the menu artwork which bring together Emery’s menu, the spirit of Oxford and ideas from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” The illustrations take inspiration from the celebrated British Cartoonist Osbert Lancaster, an erstwhile resident of The Randolph Hotel who paid for his keep in paintings.
