About us


A bit about us…

It all began when my wife and I bought an old Rice Horse Box which is approximately 40 year old. We instantly decided ‘let’s create a horse box bar with a difference and call it’ ‘The Alco Box’. The journey then begun… With lots of hard work, plenty of TLC and a few minor set backs of course, our bar is now complete.

The Alco Box is a quirky converted horse box Gin bar. Our Alco Box has been hand crafted by my wife and I using all reclaimed wood for our local wood yard ‘Newcastle Wood Recycling’. Our artwork design has also been hand painted by a local artist Sarah Jarman (Sarah Jarman Art).

What we do…

We are available for weddings/engagements/birthdays/private/corporate hire/festivals. We rock up with a huge selection of Gin’s and speciality tonic’s along with many other drinks from locally brewed beers/ales to even more spirits and a  great selection of wines and fizz.  Not forgetting our friendly staff to serve you with a smile.  As being a small business owner (we also have a sandwich deli) we think it is important wherever possible to use locally sourced products. We are working with local breweries to serve beers and ales from our bar (all tasted in advance of course).

We look forward to many future events and please contact us for any further information regarding The Alco Box, we are more than happy to help.
